Fences in La Habra

We deliver and build wood, vinyl, aluminum, steel, composite, and glass fences.  We install in the ground, on slabs and on top of walls.

Fences deliver separation between residences, and provide either privacy or openness contingent on what is necessary.  For example, openness might be required because of either a pool or a good view.  Pool or sprinkler water and the moisture in the air in Southern California makes steel rust and corrode, so for openness the best answer is vinyl or aluminum.  Steel fencing is frequently identified as wrought iron, but that is a misnomer since wrought iron does not oxidize, while mild steel unquestionably does. Aluminum fences have an identical small outline as steel, while vinyl fencing will have larger members or profiles.  Both aluminum & vinyl are excellent materials near pools since they won’t deteriorate or necessitate painting even when exposed to lots of water.  Darker colors are not offered in vinyl.

For solid fencing, vinyl or composites are best since again they won’t rot or deteriorate.  The color white is common for vinyl, however we install an exceptionally nice tan vinyl with a texture making it distinct from the usual produced material.

Another pool fencing possibility is a portable fence like the kind manufactured by “Baby-loc”.  Their type employs a netting material to keep young ones out and uses either fiberglass or aluminum posts that are put into fittings precisely placed in a concrete slab. Lastly, there is a special dog guard fence system that activates a shocking device on a dog collar. If the dog attempts to cross an invisible fence line fixed by a buried wire the dog will be discouraged by a shock. Glass fences and rails are a final option, and they must be custom built.

Patio Covers in La Habra

Pierce Construction & Repair delivers and installs patio covers which are either water proof or for shade.   For waterproofed patio covers, we employ wood, metal and Alumawood.  When it comes to shade covers, we use vinyl, wood, or canvas.  Wood framing with roofing is done, however it’s usually too expensive.   Shade patios, when made of wood, necessitate painting which is a huge maintenance drawback, so to reduce maintenance, Alumawood or vinyl shade covers are suggested.

Over half of the patio covers put together for our clientele in Orange County are built to be for shade and are made of lattice (2x2s) set uniformly on the top.  If the shade 2x2s are painted wood, they will need to be repainted in a few years.  This is very tricky, time consuming and expensive.  That’s why, Alumawood or vinyl is suggested for patio covers.  On the other hand, since we get morning precipitation and a little rain, solid water proof covers are also popular.  With regard to a second story deck, the same rule is appropriate in that a water proof lid shelters both the tables and chairs below besides the actual building itself.  Structural protection leads to a reduction in maintenance and repairs.

Dry-rot is the key ingredient to wood damage in our area, not termites.  Termites can be eradicated, but dry-rot is classified as a fungus and it continues to reproduce and ruin wood.  The old wood has to be either cut out or removed. Dry-rot will strike if moisture is allowed to collect in an space which does not dry up quickly.  This can occur on top of level joists, but especially between wood joints.  When dealing with substructures, we choose to use chemically treated “Green” wood which fights dry-rot.  Sometimes we cover substructure support members with roofing type paper or vinyl to safeguard the supporting wood from water. We specifically like to keep the designs simple by minimizing the ornamental trim or moldings that make crevices and spaces for water to get into and attack the wood.  Most homeowners permit dirt to accumulate so that the dirt actually contacts reinforcement wood for either fences or patio covers.  When rainwater, or water from a sprinkler is allowed to accumulate near a support base, it almost assures that the wood support will rot out.   As an alternative, canvas awnings can be very attractive and efficient for creating a shield from the elements.  Sunesta carries a variety of designs and multiple colored fabrics. Awnings also come in permanent, or with the option of closing and opening either by hand or with the aid of a motor.
