Fences in Fullerton

We deliver and set up vinyl, steel glass, aluminum and wood fences. We install on slabs, in-ground, and on top of walls.

Fences deliver divisions between homes, and furnish either privacy or openness depending upon what is needed. For example, openness might be needed on account of either a swimming pool or a pleasant view. Sprinklers or pool water and the moisture in the air in our area lets steel rust and rot, so for openness the best answer is vinyl or aluminum. Steel fencing is regularly identified as wrought iron, but that is a misnomer given that wrought iron won’t oxidize, whereas mild steel certainly does. Aluminum fences have the same diminutive shape as steel, whereas vinyl fencing will have bigger supports or profiles. Either aluminum & vinyl are superior materials in the vicinity of swimming pools given that they do not deteriorate or need painting even when left exposed to lots of moisture. Dark colors are not available in vinyl.

For sturdy fencing, vinyl or composites are best given that again they do not rot or decompose. White is customary for vinyl, but we have an exceptionally good looking tan vinyl with a texture making it unlike the usual produced material.

Another swimming pool fence possibility is a detachable fence such as the style produced by “Baby-loc”. This employs a netted material to keep a child out and needs either fiberglass or aluminum posts that are placed into fittings correctly located in a concrete slab. Finally, there is a special dog guard fence system that activates a shocking apparatus on a dog collar. If the dog tries to cut across a concealed fence line established by a buried wire the dog will be prevented by an electrical shock.
Glass fences and rails are a last choice, and they must be custom built.

Patio Covers in Fullerton

Pierce Construction & Repair provides and set up patio covers which are either water proof or for shade. For waterproofed patio covers, we utilize metal, Alumawood, and wood. For shade covers, we utilize canvas, wood or vinyl. Wood framing and shingles could be built, however it’s generally too expensive. Shade patios, when done in wood, need painting which is a huge maintenance issue, so to lessen maintenance, vinyl or Alumawood patio covers are recommended.

Many of the patio covers built for customers in the Orange County area are intended to be used as shade and involve lattice (2x2s) spaced evenly on the top. If the shade 2x2s are painted wood, they will need repainting in a few years. This is very complicated, time consuming and costly. For that reason, vinyl or Alumawood is advised for patio covers. Nevertheless, because we get morning precipitation and a minimal amout rain, solid water proof covers are also trendy. With regard to a second story balcony, the same rule applies in that a water proof cover shelters both the tables and chairs below in addition to the actual construction itself. Structural protection means less repairs and maintenance.

Dry-rot causes lots of wood damage in additon to termites. Termites can be removed, but dry-rot is a fungus and it will continue to grow and destroy wood. Such bad wood needs to be removed and cut out. Dry-rot will happen if moisture is allowed to accumulate in an area which doesn’t dry prompltly. Examples can occur on top of flat beams, but especially in areas involving wood joints. When building substructures, we choose to use chemically pressure treated wood which resists dry-rot. Sometimes we protect substructure support members with roofing type paper or vinyl to safeguard the supporting wood from moisture attack. We specifically like to keep designs simple by minimizing the ornate moldings or trim that make cracks and spaces for moisture to get into and damage the wood. Sometimes home owners permit debris to build up at the base of wooden support posts.  When water or wet dirt is allowed to accumulate against wood it virtually ensures that the wood support will rot out.

As a different choice, canvas awnings are a nice way for  your windows to be shielded from the sun.  Sunesta has an assortment of styles and  colored fabrics and their awnings can be opened either manually or automatically.
