Chain Link versus PVC Fencing: Which is best?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

neighborhood gateSo you are now a homeowner. Typically, having a home also means having a yard. What happens if your new yard doesn’t have a fence, or the fence that is currently guarding your yard might not be to your satisfaction? Looks like you have a decision to make about what fencing to have around your yard. There are many choices available to you in the world of fencing. Two of the more commonly seen fences are chain link fences and PVC fences. Which should you choose? Here are some topics to think about when making your decision:

  1. Strength: How strong will my fence be?
  2. Quality: How will the materials of my fence hold up?
  3. Aesthetic Appeal: How will my fence look?

When it comes to a chain link fence, strength will not be a problem. Chain link fencing can be made with a coating to make it safer to touch and to last longer. Chain link fencing has been a prominent feature in many neighborhoods throughout the years. The coating helps make the fence more pleasing to the eye and enables the fence to coordinate with the color of the homeowner’s house.

PVC fencing is becoming a more recognized staple in communities. PVC fencing is made from polyvinyl chloride which allows it to be durable and flexible. Due to its material, PVC fencing won’t show every day wear and tear like discoloration, chips, or rust.

Both fencing is reasonably priced and can easily fit in with any community or neighborhood. PVC fencing could be used for a more private homeowner, while chain link fences could be used for someone who wants to see their neighbor. PVC fencing can be more costly in comparison to chain link fencing, but won’t need regular maintenance like chain link fencing, possibly saving money over a longer period of time.

At Hercules Fence, we specialize in helping you make the right decision when choosing a fence. We have six locations in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. We are trained to help guide you in choosing the correct materials for your fencing and to help you feel confident in the decision that you make. We understand that fencing not only adds value to your property, but can also help turn a house into a home. While browsing our website, you can see pictures of previous residential work under “Signature Projects”.

Our offices are located in the Baltimore, Washington DC, Raleigh, and Richmond areas.

School Playground Fences: What is the Best Fencing?

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Do you need to install a school playground fence? If yes, Hercules Fence is here to help you create the safest school playground area.

A playground fence purpose is to keep children safe while keeping hazards out.

When deciding on the best fencing for your playground, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Hercules Fence is here to tell you what to consider before purchasing your playground fence materials. It all has to do with the children’s needs and safety being equally valued in importance.

The first question you should ask yourself is whether children can climb the fence. A playground fence should never be easily climbed over by children. Playground fences are meant to be tall enough to keep children safe and contained.

To make it challenging for children to climb the playground fence, the fence should be at least 4 ft high. You may even want to install an un-climbable fence such as solid wood fencing or vinyl privacy fencing. The two-fence types allow no footholds for climbing. You can also use a chain link fencing if the mesh holes are no more than 25mm.

Next, make sure the fence enclosure you decide upon doesn’t pose any additional threats to your playground. A playground already has enough opportunities for children to be injured. To make your fence as safe for children as possible, make sure the fence installed has no pointed edges or poked out wires.

Wood and vinyl fencing do not have many sharp corners or edges. If going to a chain link fence, have the fence coated with polyvinyl to make a cushion against the wire mesh. And always avoid any fence with bars four inches apart. This is a death trap for children if heads become entrapped.

Learn how Hercules Fence can create a safe playground environment for you by reading Hercules Fence Enters New Partnership With No Fault Sport Group.

Hercules Fence Donates Dog Run Fence to Humane Society

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Happy Dog Enjoys New Dog Run Fence at Montgomery County Humane Society.

It is a pleasure for Hercules Fence to do its part in making the community a better place to live and work. Recently, Hercules Fence donated a beautiful dog run fence to the Montgomery County Humane Society (MCHS).

Hercules Fence received a message from Shari Kalina, a volunteer with the Montgomery County Humane Society in Rockville, Maryland about the shelter being very much in need of a local fencing company that could provide and install approximately 100 feet of chain link fencing on their shelter grounds so the dogs could have a place to exercise off-leash.

Prior to the completion of the fencing project, the dogs lacked space to run around. The dogs need living space beyond their cages and a dog run provides the dogs a space to have fun and exercise while increasing their chances of getting adopted.

Bruce and many other volunteers have said the dog run fence has made a tremendous difference lifestyle improvement for the shelter dogs. The Montgomery County Humane Society is thankful Hercules Fence has made this project into a reality. The Humane Society has created a plaque to thank Hercules Fence for this very important contribution to the well being of their shelter dogs. The plaque is mounted on the pen.

MCHS Gives Hercules Fence A Plaque to Thank Us For The Donation.

Watch this video clip from Bruce aka Bruno, another active volunteer at the Montgomery County Humane Society, to see the dogs run happily in the park:

Temporary Fences: How To Benefit From Temporary Fencing

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

If you are considering installing a temporary fence, Hercules Fence is here to help you install one that meets your needs without sacrificing style. Read to learn about temporary fences and the benefits they can provide you and your property.

Temporary fences are often lightweight fencing designs composed of multiple pieces or sections put together to form different perimeter shapes and sizes.

Temporary fencing is great for construction sites but can be used for any industry.

The following are exceptional temporary fencing:

Chain-Link Fencing

This fencing consists of interwoven steel wires that create a distinctive diamond pattern. It makes for good temporary fencing because it is rot resistant, has a low risk of toppling, and makes it easy for construction managers to watch over work sites. The fence is beneficial for both safety reasons and protecting property from trespassers.

Welded Wire Panel Fencing

As for welded panel fencing, the wire mesh panel is welded between two posts. The units can be arranged in any orientation without unrolling, cutting, or attaching anything.

This temporary fence is more stable than the chain link fence because the spaces are smaller between its wires. This fencing makes it challenging for potential intruders to climb welded wire panel fences. Potential intruders do not have enough space to a grip or a solid foot on the fence making it great for property security enhancement.

Plastic Fencing

If you need help with crowd control, plastic fencing is great for regulating traffic flow. Police, security companies, and concert managers use this fencing to set perimeters.

The fencing comes in a wide array of shapes, colors, and styles. Some are stackable while others are folded up to make them convenient for carrying.

Dog Fence Kits

If you need temporary residential fencing, use a dog fence kit. A dog fence kit is easy to install with stakes and posts. Simply wrap around the fabric or plastic mesh material to setup this temporary fence.

Hercules Fence will help you make the right decisions while keeping you in your budget.

Hercules Fence has a superb reputation for quality service and products. For example, we installed a fence for Harrison Tyler, one of the living grandsons of the 10th President of the United States, John Tyler.

Hercules Fence does not only install residential, commercial and high-security, high quality fencing but also Hercules Fence donates products and labor to charities, as well as, ABC’s remodeling project called “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”.

How you can make your Yard fence part of your backyard design.

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Want to create the backyard of your dreams? Then look no further; we have the information and resources to assist you in your home and garden projects!

One great backyard project is choosing the perfect yard fence! The basic function of a yard fence is to mark a property, provide security and privacy. But the use of a yard fence does not have to stop at the basic purpose. Your yard fence can be beautiful and enhance the environment of your backyard design!

There are a range of ways to reach this goal and more.

For one, you can build a garden fence to keep your pets, rabbits, and deer out of your flowerbed. Building a garden fence is not only easy but it is inexpensive.

Some inexpensive types of garden fencing are post and rail or wire and mesh. These types of fencing are easy to erect. But what matters most in design are material and style.

Here are three great styles and material you can try in your backyard:

  1. Wood fences. This fence is a traditional yard fence that remains tremendously popular with homeowners. It is naturally beautiful because it is real wood. Wood styles of cedar, redwood or pine are great style choices to use.
  2. Vinyl fencing. This is an excellent fencing choice because: it can closely resemble wood. It is ultra-easy to care. It is long lasting and attractive. Many vinyl fencing require no treatment.
  3. Chain Link Fencing. It is a great traditional gray metal because it is inexpensive, sturdy and attractive.

Yard fences should be practical and ornamental. It does not matter if it is an old-fashioned picket fence, wrought iron spear or has a contemporary geometric design. A yard fence adds beauty while offering protection. The yard fence transforms over time but it never goes out of style. Read  this article from MyBackyardProjects.com for more information on Yard fence design.

A 4th of July Menu that will Set Your Barbeque Apart From The Crowd

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Hamburgers and hotdogs. Been there and done that.

You want to make food that people will really enjoy. Give your friends and family a reason to pick your barbeque over all of the other 4th of July feasts taking place this weekend. But how can you put a unique flair on such a traditional day?

First Course

Every party needs finger foods – something for your guests to pick at while the main course is being prepared. But try to avoid serving chips and dip. You might as well just yell out, “I am boring and have no imagination!”

So here are a few, more imaginative ideas (try to spread out the snacks to keep people moving):

Kitchen: Sweet and Sour Meatballs in a crock-pot! Serve with small plates, napkins and toothpicks.

Living room: Build your own nachos. Include: Sour cream, Salsa, chopped olives, onions, guacamole, hot and mild and a good brand of tortilla chips. Add plenty of napkins and study paper plates to avoid spills.

Bar and Pool area: Since the majority of drinks are served in this area serve cheese flavored popcorn, and peanuts in their shells. This area should be spill and litter safe.

Dining Room Table: Selection of hard cheese and soft cheese spreads, grapes, pineapple wedges, melon balls and crackers.

Main Course

Make kabobs of chicken meat, onion, tomato and pepper for guests that aren’t into ribs. Place these on stick the day before the party and let marinate in your favorite sauce until party time. Required cooking time is only about 30 minutes. Cook the chicken after the ribs.

Sides
Place corn on the cob (in their hulls, but cleaned of silks) on the grill for 30 minutes.

Rice Salad:

Recipe: Cook your rice the day before the party. Add scallions, can mushrooms, red peppers, green olives and mayo to hold it all together. Hint: for a great leftover idea add frozen shrimp to the rice salad the next day!

Stuffed mushrooms:

Recipe: remove stem from cleaned mushrooms. Chop stems and sauté in 1 tab butter with chopped onion and green pepper. Remove from heat. Add breadcrumbs and mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper until mixture holds together. Fill mushroom caps with mixture, and bake at 350 degrees until juicy. Can be made ahead of time and just popped in the oven when guest arrive. Keep extra in the oven they stay warm and fresh for hours.

Pasta Salad (vegetarian dish):

Recipe: Tri-colored spiral pasta (wheat for fanatics) cooked but not mush! Onions, chopped tomatoes, marinated Artichoke hearts chopped, and Wishbone Italian dressing. Top with Parmesan cheese and refrigerate overnight

And of course, don’t forget the dessert. Have fun with it. Perhaps bake a red, white and blue cake? It is both patriotic and delicious.
