Rocking It!

Rocking It!
 
Our crews are rocking it with this SimTek Ecostone fence install in Yerington.
 
The property gets a stone wall look around the perimeter with the durability of steel reinforced posts, panels, and gates.

Forging Ahead For A Smooth Transition

Forging Ahead For A Smooth Transition
 
Sometimes the material we’re working with or the location of our installs require a creative solution to a particular situation.
 
In these instances, Tahoe Fence strives to keep forging (pun intended) ahead for a smooth transition.

The Compliment Of Ornamental Steel And Wood

The Compliment Of Ornamental Steel And Wood
Ornamental steel and wood work well together. Whether it’s iron panels on wood posts, or wood fences and gates with ornamental steel hardware, each compliments the other.
Ornamental steel hardware may give a refined touch to a rustic fence. While wood adds a sense of warmth and proximity to nature for finished steel panels.

You’ve Got To See This. Take A Peek . . .
 
Add privacy to chain link fencing to keep others from seeing what you’ve got with vinyl slats.
 
New wire can have slats already woven into the fabric. Or like our crews were able to do at a local area middle school, slats may be added to existing wire to help keep people from peeking in.
 
If you’re going to have slats added to an existing chain link fence, be sure to check that the framework (posts and rail/bracing) is strong enough to withstand the increase in resistance to wet weather and wind the slats will add to the existing fence.

Go With The Flow

Go With The Flow
 
A general rule is that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. But sometimes the rules have to be broken, or bent a little.
 
Take this ornamental steel fence our crews installed. The fence goes with the flow of the existing driveways and landscaping gently rounding out the corners.

A good excuse to think of those we care about . . .

Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day this weekend. Even if you’re not into the commercial marketing of the holiday, it’s a good time to think of those we hold dear. And to show them we care. After this past year every bit helps.
 
Happy Valentine’s Day.

Emergency Repair Before And After.

Emergency Repair Before And After.
 
Our employees did a a great job on an emergency repair for one of the schools in the area. They had to finish tearing out the existing chain link, posts, and rail that suffered vehicle damage. Then close off the opening left by replacing the damaged material with new and connecting it all to the existing fence.

Our crews do great work that is nice to look at.

But sometimes you just can’t compare to the existing view.

What to do with all this snow?

What to do with all this snow?
 
Get a grip. It’s slippery with all the snow and ice Winter has left.
 
Consider hand rails in high traffic areas where it’s feasible to help prevent weather related slips and falls.
