Pool Deck Railing and Gates
The barrier around your pool deck is vital for safety, and you want your deck railing to look good, too, so choose wisely. Finding the proper pool deck barrier consists of 4 steps:
1) Contact your local government about bylaws regarding height of pool deck railing, as these bylaws vary by state.
2) Configure placement of the railing. With in-ground pools, a fence is often a better choice than rails, since it can be installed on the perimeter of the yard, far away enough from the pool to give the allusion of space, while also adding privacy.
3) Decide on the railing material: wood, composite, iron, chain link, vinyl and aluminum are all possible. Your budget will most likely be the deciding factor here.
4) Install the railing, or better yet – have them installed properly by a pool deck professional who understands building codes and any manufacturer specifications when installing your railing. Your family’s safety is on the line; you do not want an accident to happen because you didn’t property install your pool deck railing….
