We have recently made the decision to erect an aluminum fence around the perimeter of our property in Windermere, just outside of Orlando FL. So far only one local fence contractor has given us an estimate. For 165 feet of 5' tall aluminum fencing (our HOA requires aluminium) their estimate was $4750. This seems like a great price considering we paid $6k 2 years ago for roughly the same footage in the DC area. Does anybody on this board have any other price comparisons to offer? Florida Custom Fence has put up several fences for our neighbors and they were highly recommended.

Hello there,

I like things "elegant" - but then again, it depends on your budget. Installing a mesh safety fence for an in-ground pool (assume you have an in ground pool)is a nice option - they can be removable when the child is older and a good swimmer. A fence is the best "layer of protection" to have around the pool, and I commend your diligence in keeping your pool safe. If you are in the snow-belt, a mesh safety cover will keep the pool safe during the winter, and can be used in the summer, but kind of a pain to put on and off. Many of our customers use the mesh cover in the winter and the mesh fence during the summer. The mesh fencing brands are all very similar, and install fairly easily into holes drilled into the pool deck. It runs about $10 per foot. Not as elegant as a steel or vinyl fence, but very safe. Whatever fence you get, make sure the gate is self closing, self latching, and preferably locked. Also, I'm a big fan of teaching swimming to kids at a very early age, along with a healthy dose of fear-based rules.

Thanks,
Calogero Lewis
