In many areas it is an absolute necessity to install a swimming pool surround or fence. The laws are usually in place to prevent children and animals from accidentally falling into a pool. Clearly this also means that such fences will have to be durable and impervious to serious attempts at scaling or digging. While some homeowners manage to successfully complete the installation of a swimming pool fence on a DIY basis, for the purpose of this discussion we will consider it a job strictly for a fencing contractor.
According to InlandEmpirePoolFence.com fences designed specifically to surround pools will cost between $15 and $19 per linear foot. Some installers offer bulk discounts when the area to be enclosed is significantly larger than normal, and generally fencing is going to be installed at lengths between 30 and 60 linear feet. Once the project exceeds these average lengths the cost per linear foot may decrease. This implies that the average cost for a fence installation is going to be around $1120 (including a single self-closing gate).
Slope or dirt work - when fencing is installed along a slope, or inserted into soil rather than masonry or concrete, it is going to increase the labor costs substantially. This is simply because most swimming pool fencing is designed to be installed in much more rigid and durable substances rather than dirt. Installers will have to use a different set of lock in devices and will also have to spend a great deal longer on this sort of installation process
