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.

We had Apex build our fence and arbors a couple of months ago and are very pleased with their service and their quality of workmanship and especially our new and beautiful metal fence. Carl was an excellent, knowledgeable, and cordial salesperson. We highly recommend Apex Fencing.
We had a large 4 rail fence installed in preparation for a pool installation. The job was scheduled and completed quickly- meeting all of my expectations. A few weeks later, we needed to change the gating configuration. The company responded quickly and made the adjustments. The crews that accomplished the work were professional, respectful and communicated throughout the process. Fast forward to the latest job they accomplished for us - We needed to have some of the fencing "re-installed" as a result of bringing in the heavy equipment for the pool install. Once again, excellent work, professional workers, polite and on time. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for fencing.
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
Working with Apex Fencing was a really great experience! The price was reasonable, Carl (one of the owners) was extremely knowledgeable, and our fence looks GREAT! When Apex thought they were finished with our fence, I discovered a major problem that was our fault - I called Carl and apologized for the problems I had caused, but expressed a strong need to have it fixed quickly. He had his men out first thing the next morning taking care of a problem that I caused for myself. I fully recommend this company and will definitely use them again if I ever need to fence another yard!
OK, when the neighbors come over and tell you they have "fence envy", you know you chose the right company! Apex gave us exactly what we were looking for and at a good price too. Sure, we could have gone cheaper, but I didn't want a cheap looking fence. The crew made it work for MY schedule which was important since we were on a deadline. Overall we couldn't be happier with the new metal fence. Thanks Apex!
We recently had a chain linked fence installed. Tom (sales) was very thorough and did an excellent job answering all my questions. The crew showed up on time, were hard workers, were very professional and did a great job. Apex Fence Company exceeded my expectations and that rarely happens! I would highly recommend using them to anyone!
After meeting with several disappointing fence company representatives, Tom was a breath of fresh air. He was on time, polite and said "Yes we can" when everyone else said "No we can't" or grumbled. We are very happy with the finished product.
The crew was very professional and came to work on time. They kept me informed when there was complications and if they foresaw weather interference with the job. Would recommend Apex to others who would like to redo their fence.
I had a chain link fence installed on one of my rental properties. They did a great job and I feel the price was reasonable I'm pleased with the product, service, and they left the job site clean upon completion.
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
