Fence FAQs
Q- Do you do gate operators?
A- Yes! We do residential and commercial gate operators. The residential operators we use are low voltage and have a battery backup. For most residential applications under 14' wide it is usually better and more cost effective to use a single gate. Swing gates are also more trouble free, cost less, and use far less moving parts than their sliding equivalent. We will usually recommend swing gates over slide gates, unless there is no room to swing a gate of sufficent size. Residential gate operators come equipped with garage door style remotes and can be fitted with any number of remotes and/or keypads, card entry, push buttons and exit devices.

Q- What kind of fence am I required to have around my pool?
To preface the answer, our company can give general information from what we have encountered over the years. It is up to the consumer to make sure that the fence you choose meets the local code in the area. Generally, this will include minimum height of the fence, the gate needs to be self closing, self latching and lockable. Here are some links that may help you to locate the pool codes in your area.

Q- Should I use pressure treated pine or cedar for my new fence?
Pressure treated pine is chemically treated to provide resistance to insect damage and limited to resistance to water damage. Pine has a tendency to split, twist and bow more so than cedar. Cedar is the more attractive of the two products and will look better for longer. Cedar is the overwhelming choice when it comes down to what really looks best.
