Thank you to all of our customers who send in thank you notes or even call to say thanks for your new pool fences.
We installed this pool fence in Ringwood after the owners had been reported as non compliant. They had listed their house for sale and jumped into action doing the right thing. Unfortunately, the building surveyor that they engaged quoted over $6000 to get the pool fence permit through. They contacted me for a pool fence quote and mentioned the figure. After looking over the contract, I offered to run it by some of the surveyors I usually work with.
In terms of the fence, the owners were originally thinking of a tubular pool fence. I advised that it would be better for their sale price to have glass across the front being adjacent to the entertaining area and kitchen. Using glass near areas which afford a view is always best. But a pool fence doesn’t have to be all glass to look great. Often a mix works well and achieves a great look at a good price. A view from house that looks out onto a pool is worth protecting as a feature and glass gives a modern and clean look.
In the end, after a few weeks of searching, we found someone who would help out for a fair price. Typically a building surveyor might charge between $800 and $1500 for a pool fence building permit.

The real estate agent thought the fence looked brilliant and will only help the sale.
The owners really appreciated our work and sent a lovely note as thanks.
