Hi telboy,
Get your local metal guys out to measure up and get a price..........worked OK for us......... :idea:

Agree with Enrique, we needed rails all around the pool as well as 2 new entrance gates and a field gate.The local metal merchants came out and measured up, we chose a simple design, one without too much intricate pattern ( would drive me mad having to paint some of them you see) .We were really happy with the finished product and the best part of it was the cost! Half of what it would have been in the UK...Anyone know why metal work is so expensive in the UK compared to Spain? Is it the cost of labour or the cost of the raw materials?
