Love Mania

Love Mania

60-years ago today, the "Beatles" debuted on American TV with Ed Sullivan.

America cemented its love mania with the "Beatles" when they played their 1st song on the show, "All My Lovin." Seems fitting with Valentine's Day coming this next week.

If you're expecting manic crowds of America's lovesick teenagers, or whatever (we're not judgmental,) look into protecting your property perimeter. Like this 8-ft high, Guardian-style ornamental iron with a screened, access gate Tahoe's crews installed in Reno (Washoe County.)Love Mania

Groundhog Day Again

Groundhog Day Again The Bill Murray movie has forever changed how we think about today. And if you didn't already know, it's Groundhog Day again. And if you believe in this sort of thing, the groundhog didn't see its shadow. Spring is coming early, even though we're expecting another big storm this weekend. Maybe it's a Spring storm. Tahoe's crews are also feeling a little deja vu today. They're working on another biofuel farm project, similar to this one pictured in Yerington (Lyon County.) The fence is almost 2,000 linear feet of 7-foot high, all black chain link with 6-strands of barbed wire. And gates. There are lots of big gates. Big enough to truck whatever they want through.Groundhog Day Again

Privacy That Lasts

Privacy That Lasts
Nothing can compare to the natural beauty of a wood fence. The look and feel of new lumber can dress up any yard.  And make it warm and inviting. And if you wanted privacy, there aren't too many options that provide a similar cozy effect.
But a wood fence around our area requires maintenance. Broken, damaged, and weathered pieces eventually need to be repaired or replaced. If you decide to stain or seal your wood fence, it has to be repeated at minimum every couple or few years to maintain the look.
Tahoe Fence can provide and install products that offer lasting privacy with the appearance of wood. And they don't have the upkeep issues like wood.
This rotationally molded fence installed by Tahoe's crews in South Lake Tahoe (El Dorado County,) has a real wood look and is reinforced with steel inserts. It's manufactured and engineered to be durable, fade resistant, and helps absorb noise from one side of the fence to the other.Privacy That Lasts

WINDS (When In Nevada Does’t Stop?)

WINDS (When In Nevada Does't Stop?)

You may have noticed it's been a bit breezy this January. The winds have felt like they weren't ever going to stop.

This past weekend NV Energy reported that Northern Nevada had an 18-hour, high-wind event. And the National Weather Service recorded 79 mph winds in the Jacks Valley area. The week before nearly 90 mph winds were recorded in Washoe Valley.

For perspective, the National Hurricane Center classifies a category 1 hurricane as having sustained winds of 74 to 95 mph.

All of us at Tahoe Fence hope everyone impacted by the recent storms are safe and doing alright. 

If you need our services for downed fence repair or replacement, rest assured we're working to get to everyone who has contacted us.

Gates Don’t Go with Snow

Gates Don't Go with Snow We received a little bit of snow this week. In fact, we're still digging out. It's a good reminder that gates don't go with snow. Whether your gates are manually operated or automated, they work best and are less trouble if the snow is cleared away. Just like you clear your windows before moving your car, you should do the same with your gates. Clear their path of travel. If you use your gate as a plow, you could damage the hardware and the gate. If it's an automated gate, you'll void any warranties on the operator and could create a dangerous situation using the gate as a plow. Lubricate moving parts with a water repellent product to help reduce seizing in cold temps. For swing gates that means lubricating hinges and latches. On a slide gate, that could mean lubricating either the gate tracks or gate frame, wheels, and latches. And if you have an automated gate, make sure operators, accessories, chains, etc. are clear of snow and ice as well.

First Snow

First Snow

Winter may bring cold temperatures and darker days, but it also brings nights spent by the fire, seasonal activities, and nothing more magical than the year's first snow.

We can prepare for the weather by wearing warm layers and keeping vehicles prepped for the elements. This is exactly what Tahoe's crews are doing while working outside.

Tahoe Fence hopes everyone is staying safe and ready for the year's first snowstorms.

Holiday Cheer

Holiday Cheer
After this past week, sure is nice to see some more holiday cheer.
So a big thank you to our neighbors in the Comstock Industrial Park here in Mound House. Like V and T Rock Inc. and ARMAC Construction, LLC a couple of the businesses that have gone all out to decorate.
Their Christmas lights shining before dawn help to start our day with a smile. Can you ever be too old for Christmas lights?
