Reasons to Install a Pool Fence
Pool Fences Provide Peace of Mind
A swimming pool fence is a decorative accessory for your home that also provides safety and peace of mind.
In addition to bringing you peace of mind so that pets and children stay safe around your pool, having a professionally installed swimming pool fence adds value to your property — an important consideration if you plan to sell it at some point in the future.
A pool fence can add a great deal of beauty and style to the exterior of your home, and Apex Fence Company has a range of different materials and designs available.
BOCA Codes Must Be Met
The swimming pool fence building codes can differ widely between cities and counties in Georgia. If they are not followed precisely, you could receive a summons or inadvertently be responsible for a pet or child falling in your pool.
Apex Fence Company has the experience and knowledge needed to install your pool fence so that it meets and exceeds the stipulations set forth by the county or city where your house is located. You can hire us with confidence and know that you will get an attractive fence that meets all Georgia fencing regulations.
A Pool Fence Gives You Privacy
Another important criterion when it comes to having a pool fence installed is privacy. Being able to enjoy your pool in private without your neighbors peeking at you when you are relaxing is extremely important to most homeowners.
Knowing that the neighborhood kids can see that you are taking a dip in your pool and want to join you can greatly decrease your enjoyment of it. This same idea applies to those adult neighbors who always seem to come to visit you — uninvited and armed with their sunblock and beach towel — as you are preparing to slip into your pool for a relaxing dip.
Attractive Materials and Designs
Pool fences do not have to be chain link, though there is nothing wrong with choosing this material if you need something that is budget-friendly.
There are a number of other types of materials that can be used for your pool fence. Decorative metal pool fences add a significant amount of class and charm to your property. Wood swimming pool fences are available in many different styles that are designed to make your yard look fantastic while still ensuring that kids and pets are kept away from the water.

Horizontal members must be 45″ apart so as to not provide a foothold for children to climb over. Chain link fences for pool applications use a smaller mesh size which is 1-1/4″.

I had a great experience with Apex and love my new cedar fence. From the first meeting, my rep, Eric, was extremely thorough and educated me about how the fence would be built and why. Once, when I called the office to ask a question, I spoke with the owner, Brian, who took the time to address all of my concerns in detail. Thanks for the great service, Apex! I'm recommending you to my friends!
We are investors and have used Apex Fence Company on several occasions to install fences at our properties. They consistently provide great service, fair prices and top-quality work. We highly recommend them and will continue to use them for all our fencing needs. -Lish Properties
Apex did a great job! They were fast and the decorative fence looks great. The workers were very nice and didn't leave any mess. Brian was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!
We needed a decorative metal fence for our new pool. We got three quotes, and Apex not only was the most competitive, but their technician was the most knowledgeable of the three. The job was done on time, finished product is great, and you aren't expected to make the final payment until you approve that the job was done correctly.
Apex Fence Company really went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer, even coming out to speak personally with a difficult neighbor. I was really impressed with their professionalism, and ended up with a beautiful privacy fence!
Just had an old metal fence replaced by Apex. Prompt,professional service & great pricing keeps shining on. Carl & his crew did a great job.
Apex Fence was reliable and easy to work with. Their finished product at our home was superb... We even had them do fences at two of our other properties.
We highly recommend Apex Fence Company. -Kimmy Ryder
Brian was one of four quotes - he was FABULOUS to work with, made sure we found the pins for our property line, came out for follow-ups after to make sure things were good - and they are! We LOVE our new fence and thanks to Brian we actually have more yard than we realized because we had the wrong plat-map! They are GREAT, easy to work with, do exactly what they say they will do and listen to exactly what you need. He made suggestions and went above and beyond to make sure things are great. I highly recommend using APEX Fence for all of your fencing needs.
Thank you Brian and Florencio!!
Apex installed our fence last year. Our son broke one of the pickets recently and Apex said that they would repair it at no charge. They came out and did a fabulous job. The crew even made a few modifications at no charge. I can't say enough about this company. I'm so pleased. Jill couldn't have been nicer and I'll be calling Brian to see if he can do more work for us. Thank you APEX!!
Working with Apex Fence was a pleasant experience. Brian was great with all aspects of planning and working with us for the best time to start the job. He was very helpful and responsive to my calls. The crew that put up the fence was amazing. They worked quickly and produced a beautiful fence for my family to enjoy. Our whole neighborhood is enjoying our fence and loves it as much as we do. I would recommend Apex Fence to anyone. And I am sure we will use them again for future fence projects.
