Maximize the usable days on your new deck... the sooner you start, the sooner it will be ready for your party.

Your Deck Should Enhance Your Property

Plan your new deck to enhance your property - get details from the Security Fence Staff - Red Lion, PADon’t over-improve but don’t under-improve your property with your new deck.  Likewise, be sure it is not too large or too small in proportion to your yard.  Traffic patterns and intended usage will also drive your decision to place your deck.  Here are more details and guidelines to help.

What Type of Decking Material? 

Basically, there are three ways to go – from PVC to composite to natural wood.  All three have unique advantages and disadvantages.

cellular PVC decking boards for low maintenance and long life -- see Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PACellular PVC decking – This high-end option offers a deck with the least amount of maintenance required.  It also provides a wide array of colors and designs – even decorative two-tone framing for a very customized appearance.  Foot traffic on the deck can cause some scratching, but you won’t need staining or sealing for protection; and your decking will be strong and light and will not splinter, rot or crack.  A yearly power washing should be all the maintenance needed to keep your cellular PVC deck looking great.

Want more details? Check this out... 

Composite decking boards offer a mid-range option from Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PAComposite decking – With color and pattern choices similar to Cellular PVC, composite decking includes wood product filler and is somewhat more affordable and only requires periodic cleaning.  With this option, you can achieve a real wood look.  It is somewhat softer and less scratch-resistant than the higher-end Cellular PVC option, but it is often the go-to choice for a custom, low-maintenance deck option if budget is a factor.

 

 

wooden deck

Wood decking – With various choices of wood and many choices of stain and finish available, a wood deck allows for a less expensive but still customized option for your deck. Maintenance of your pressure-treated wood deck is considerable when compared to Cellular PVC or Composite.  The first year, you’ll want to leave the deck to dry out; and then you’ll stain and seal every few years thereafter to stay ahead of the surface wear from foot traffic. Wood decking feels natural to the touch and is somewhat cooler than other options.

 After Choosing Deck Boards, Select Your Railings

Choose from many styles of railings for your deck at Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PAWhether your deck is on one level or several, whether there are stairs or not, your available choices for deck railings are many.  Will you stick with the traditional or be creative.  Whatever you choose, your railings should complement the style of your house.  So take time to select with care.

A Multitude of Accessories

Many deck accessories will round out your deck plan - Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PAIf you’ll be doing much entertaining, you might want to add built-in benches.  If there is a lot of sun exposure on your deck, you should consider shade structures like awnings or perhaps pergolas.  If you’re planning to use your deck after dark, it will help to include deck-lighting, and there are many options available. 

Unless you are an experienced builder, you will likely have questions as you think through your plan for your deck.  You can rely on the crew at Security Fence Company to have answers for you and to help guide you through your planning process so that you avoid costly and time consuming mistakes.  Just call us or drop by our office and browse our showroom.  We’re here to help.

Decking by Security Fence - low maintenance composite deck boards - Red Lion, PAWhether you’ll be working with a decking contractor like Security Fence Company or doing your own deck construction, you’ll have many questions to answer before your deck project plan is complete. 

Have questions or want to discuss your project?  Contact our Office…

Among other things, you’ll need to decide how well the deck you are planning will enhance your property, the dimensions of your completed deck, and the location of the deck relative to your house. Here are some guidelines to get you started.

Decking with component deck boards - Security Fence Company - decking contractorReflecting on the Appearance

Adding a deck to your property will enhance your property value, but under-improving or over-improving will not serve you well regarding return on investment when you sell your property. Appearance is important since your deck should reflect the style of your house and look as much as possible like it has been there forever. To get a good idea of appropriate choices in overall appearance, decking materials, sizing, style, landscaping and more, take some time to look at other decks in your neighborhood and perhaps speak to your neighbors who have made a similar investment.

Deck size is important to your decking plan - Ask Security Fence Company for adviceDeciding on the Size of Your Deck

A deck that is in proportion to your yard – neither too large or too small – will offer the most use and enjoyment, going forward.  Start by sketching your yard and penciling in the deck. Change it as needed until you arrive at the best sizing solution.  Don’t forget to consider the standards imposed by local codes regarding the limitations of deck size and how much yard space must be preserved between the deck and the property line.

Choosing Deck Placement

Decide on deck placement before final decking plan, advises Security Fence Company - decking contractorDepending on the size and topography of your lot and positioning of your house, you might have more than one option in the location of your deck.  Assuming you have some flexibility in where you place your deck’s access to your home, consider – in particular, traffic patterns.  It might seem most logical to position your deck to offer access through your kitchen door, but can your kitchen layout handle the traffic through the food preparation area?  Would it be better to consider access through a living area such as the family room where the layout is less constrained and the option to have a wider doorway like french doors or a slider might be possible? The latter access choice would also likely offer better access to a bath or powder room – important if you’ll be entertaining on your deck often.

Protecting From the Elements

Unless you will be adding an awning or other covering to your deck, then you’ll need to consider exposure to the sun and how you can make use of natural shade from surrounding trees or your use of the outside living space won’t be nearly as enjoyable. Wind could also be a factor, so think about how deck placement can minimize it.

When you think of having a deck, it’s likely that you first think of summertime relaxing, cooking out and entertaining friends and family.  After all, it would expand your outdoor living space.  But you might not have considered that it also adds value to your property and boosts your home’s saleability.

Decking contractor - Security Fence Co - for PVC and component decking and PVC and aluminum railingsHaving the deck of your dreams takes some time for planning and construction.  So, if you want to enjoy your new deck by the time spring brings warm weather and blooming flowerbeds, then you’ll want to start several months in advance to assess your property for deck construction. 

Successfully planning your deck requires that you think first about your yard’s layout and how you’ll be using the new space. This will help you to decide on the size and features you want or need for your new deck.  In addition, you’ll need to know about any building restrictions in your area. Then, there’s your budget to consider as well.

How can a Decking Contractor Help?

An experienced decking contractor like Security Fence Company can make the job easy by visiting your home, discussing your needs, desires and budget for your new deck, sharing decking and railing options, making recommendations and helping you decide what your new deck project will include. SFC’s seasoned representatives know the zoning requirements. They will take care of all the details: obtaining permits, scheduling the project and the crew, delivering all materials, constructing your new deck and leaving your area clean once the project is complete.  All you have to do is relax and plan your first get-together in your new outdoor space.

What if You DIY?

DIY decking project or Security Fence Company contractor?If you’ll be building the deck yourself, then it’s time to do your research on zoning guidelines and permit requirements, decide on the materials and supplies you’ll need, the tools you’ll require, and how you’ll coordinate deliveries, debris disposal, etc. If you haven’t done a project like this before, you might subscribe to make use of online design resources. With that done, pull out your calendar and set aside the construction time needed. For example, building a simple 200-250 sq. ft. deck yourself might typically require a minimum of four weekends – more if you’re new to this type of work.  Don’t forget to allow for weather contingencies along with delivery delays and other obstacles that might arise. Yes, it is a big project and time-consuming too; but it could be worth it if you have the building expertise, access to the tools and resources, and enough free weekends to make it happen.

The top ten reasons Security Fence Company’s PVC materials are superior to our competitor’s.

Why Choose PVC Fencing from Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PANot all fence referred to as ‘PVC’ is PVC. 

Many big box stores, local fence companies and landscapers attempt to sell fencing that is a composite material wrapped in PVC.  The composite material is made up from recycled materials that include plastic bags and ground up replacement window frames.  This makes up the bulk of their product which can be unstable due to the different components expanding and contracting at different rates.  This can cause cracking and structural failure.  Security Fence Company’s PVC is composed 100% Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).  No cracking, no structural failure.

Import PVC and lead poisoning has been a serious problem in the industry. 

Much of the PVC manufactured in Asia and third world countries contains so much lead it can actually leach into the ground water.  Fortunately the EPA and DER were made aware of the situation and are working diligently to test and remove the contaminated product.  Security Fence Company’s PVC is manufactured with PVC resin formed in the USA and all of our extrusions come from US manufacturing plants.  No imports = No contaminated products.

No exposed fasteners on PVC fencing from Security Fence Company, Red Lion, PA

No screws, no brackets, no exposed fasteners: A trademark of Security Fence Company PVC. 

We were one of the first in the industry over 20 years ago to construct our fence styles without unsightly and expensive exterior screws and brackets.  Our philosophy is you can’t have a maintenance free fence if you use pointed screws and brackets to hold it together. 

PVC from Security Fence Company stays clean and sleek.

You wouldn’t stand in the sun every day for years without sunscreen, would you?  Well neither does Security Fence Company’s PVC.  Our products contain titanium dioxide which is why ours stays clean and sleek through the years and some of our competitor’s turn gray and rough.

Check out our styles and pictures in the PVC Fencing Photo Gallery to see the superior appearance of Security Fence Company’s PVC.

PVC fencing from Security Fence Company of Red Lion - superior to othersNo corner, end or line post inserts required.

Thin wall posts which require inserts to stabilize the fence will crack and fail within a short period of time.  Security Fence Company PVC corner, end and line posts do not require inserts; they are a minimum wall thickness of .135”.

Gluing pickets to a fence just doesn’t work. 

I’m sure in your neighborhood you can find a person who bought the wrong PVC fence.  The pickets are falling off.  This is most prevalent with the big box store products who are attempting to emulate our appearance of no exposed fasteners.  Unfortunately, glue is not a solution.  Ask your Security Fence Company PVC representative to show you the positive locking hidden fasteners we use.  You’ll be impressed and your pickets will stay on your fence, not on the ground.

PVC fencing from Security Fence Company - Red Lion, PA - stands out from the restNo ugly rusting on a PVC fence from Security Fence Company.

Our PVC uses all stainless steel gate hardware which is powder-coated.  This process prevents rust because a PVC fence with rust running down the post or gate is not attractive.

Always a written waranty with Security Fence Company PVC

If they won’t put their guarantee in writing, it’s not a guarantee.  Security Fence Company will provide a written limited lifetime warranty on any of our Security Fence Company PVC styles.

PVC fences from Security Fence Company - Red Lion, PA - offer stable gateposts and much moreStable gate posts with no sagging

Security Fence Company PVC uses aluminum inserts to prevent sagging of sections and extra stability in gate posts.  Kids, dogs and bad neighbors abuse fencing by trying to go over, around, under and through it.  By adding aluminum extrusions to the structural points of the fence, Security Fence Company PVC will stand up to the abuse.

Extrusions that interlock are necessary for structural integrity. 

Security Fence Company PVC utilizes this practice at every possible junction.  Even our tongue and groove privacy boards have a positive interlock as opposed to our competition who simply butt board to board.  This is why Security Fence Company PVC withstands the test of time and attacks from the elements.

benefits of a privacy fenceWhile any fence serves to define the boundary of your property, a privacy fence can provide special benefits that you might not have considered.

Since it is typically much taller and serves to block the view of your property from the outside, a privacy fence can be a good option for many homeowners. You will want to be informed about all the features before making your final decision, and the following outlines some benefits for your consideration.

Visual Appeal

benefits of a privacy fenceWhen used in conjunction with landscaping materials, you can form a beautiful setting or define an area of your yard. In fact, the height of a privacy fence may allow it to serve as a “wall” to enclose a new and trendy Outdoor Room – whether it is an outdoor kitchen, dining area, pool scape, spa or some other personal space taking advantage of the outdoors. Consider the possibilities.

Shelter

Perhaps more than any other type of perimeter barrier, a privacy fence will offer your property some shelter from the elements. The fence will act as a windbreaker, protecting you and whatever it encloses from the effects of wind. Moreover, it will often also offer shade from the sun, depending on the layout in relation to your house.

A yard confined within a privacy fence will serve to keep out intruders – including the neighborhood animals – and it keeps your property hidden from prying eyes. At the same time it keeps your children and pets within the boundary, especially since they cannot see beyond the fence and be tempted to stray.

Noise Control

Typically, the height and solid construction of a privacy fence can lessen the amount of noise that your yard suffers from the outside so that it is not as intrusive as it would be with another type of fence or with no barrier at all.  In addition, it will help to danpen the noise coming from your yard making you a considerate neighbor.
