 Recently Security Fence Company celebrated our first retirement by one of our valued employees.

Dan EvelerDan Eveler retired from SFC after forty-two years of faithful service. Dan held many positions at Security Fence Co. utilizing many of the various talents he was blessed with. He began as a fence laborer, was a foreman for over fifteen years and was promoted to project superintendant. He finished his career as the sales and installation assistant to Duane Myers, our Construction Manager, who worked with Dan for over 37 of his 42 years at Security Fence Co.

Dan was instrumental in the growth of Security Fence Co. and was involved with all of our construction projects including chain link, PVC, ornamental aluminum and wood fencing. He built decks, railings, awnings and sunrooms. In addition, he installed access-controlled and automatic gates. Always stoic and a man of few words, Dan was a “get-it-done” type of gentleman. He trained and supervised SFC’s installation crews and foremen. The pride with which he performed his work has been passed on to our current employees by his example and work ethic.

A surprise breakfast was held for Dan, and the ownership presented him with a brand new retro Security Fence jacket and a custom built coffee table. The table was hand crafted from one of the original parts carts from the warehouse at SFC. After all his years of stellar service, we wish Dan Eveler the best as he retires to enjoy life and as he put it “complete his project list”. Nonetheless, we will still value his expertise and will not hesitate to call on him when his experience and advice are required.

What a way to create useful outdoor living space for minimal cost!

This particular job required Security Fence Company to remove existing walls on a poorly built 8’ x 20’ addition.

After installing new Security Fence Co PVC structural support posts, adding a high quality auto-closing screen door and installing AZEK maintenance-free trim, our customer now has a beautiful and useful screened-in porch adjacent to their Security Fence Co deck.

The renovation allows them to relax, dine and entertain outdoors, free from the nuisance of bugs and direct sunlight.

In our customer's words...

Thanks so much for your design and construction of our screened-in porch. Your crew at Security Fence was top notch and your recommendation to add recessed lights and a ceiling fan let us use our porch well into the night – bug free! Great job!

--- M.M., Heritage Hills, York, PA

arborsArbors come in many sizes, colors, styles and materials; and they can serve many purposes. So you should find several options to meet your landscaping needs. Before choosing your arbor, be sure to decide how and where it will be used.

Will it be incorporated into the structure of your garden, designed to serve as the framework for plants and shrubs – maybe as a focal point with vines climbing up and over. A deep arbor might work best in this instance – perhaps offering enough room for seating. You might use pavers underfoot to define the space, with plant material offering screening above.

Will it be used as part of the landscaping perimeter? Often an arbor can further define the edge of your outdoor space and might even be paired with a gate for this purpose. This is often done by fitting the arbor in an opening in a row of flowering shrubs.

Will your arbor be the visual entrance to your garden – often combined with a pathway. Sometimes the pathway will begin at the arbor and stretch into the garden. In other cases, a path might lead up to, under and past the arbor.

The color of the plant material and other garden accents will determine the color of your arbor once you decide if it should stand out as a focal point or recede into the background.   A lighter color arbor will usually blend well if it will supporting flowering plant material, whereas shrubs will best blend with a darker color.

Arbors are constructed of a variety of materials – from wood to ornamental metal to the no-maintenance PVC options. Much depends upon your other landscaping options, but these days PVC can be of many colors and textures which might well blend with other accessories.

Whatever your choice, you will find that an arbor will add versatility and a touch of beauty to your outdoor space.

Our experienced sales representatives here at Security Fence Company in Red Lion, PA, can show you our selection of arbors and many other items to enhance your outdoor space. They’ll answer your questions and help you decide what works best for your circumstances. So CONTACT US at your convenience to get the details.

trellisWhether you want to create a living wall of climbing vines, a splash of color to break up a wide expanse of boring exterior wall, a means of privacy, a vertical garden or something else, you will find that a trellis can make your job easy.

If an area of your yard needs more color or visual interest, then place your trellis near a wall or section of your fence. Be sure to leave space all the way around the trellis to allow plants to climb and grow their way up around the slats.

When you add a trellis to your landscaping plan, be sure to choose colors and plant types for the trellis that are repeated in the surrounding outdoor space such as flower beds and containers.

In fact, growing plants in containers placed at the base of a trellis will offer more ground area and expand your garden vertically for an entirely different appearance. This can be done with evergreens, blooming plants and even vegetables. Evergreen plants require a minimum of maintenance, offer the best privacy because of their dense growth; and many are self-climbers that do not require you to attach them to the trellis. Blooming plants – whether annuals or perennials – offer colorful splashes as they climb but often require you to attach them to the trellis to start the climbing process. Vegetables can also be grown vertically with the help of a trellis, especially cucumbers, beans and tomatoes to allow you to increase your garden’s yield; and, when they die off in the fall, you can replace them with blooming plants.

Freestanding trellises are very useful for setting apart or defining the sections of your yard. For example, to offer privacy to an outdoor sitting area or a pool or pond, add one or more trellises with plant material that blends with the landscape and is dense enough to obscure the view.

Trellises can be found in a variety of colors, styles and materials. They can be made of wood or ornamental metal such as iron or aluminum. However, if maintenance is a priority for you, then consider the many shapes and sizes of PVC trellises to meet your needs.

Here at Security Fence Company, our sales people welcome the opportunity to help you explore your choices, learn about using trellises and decide on the right one for your landscaping needs. Why not CONTACT US at your convenience to find out how we might help you and/or to request a Quote?

sunroomsYou might hear the Sunroom called by another name such as conservatory, solarium, Florida room or something else. No matter the name, the sunroom is a glassed-in living space typically attached to the house and accessible from indoors. It is designed to function as additional living area to let you enjoy lots of sunlight and fresh air. Moreover, Remodeling Magazine reports that "the resale value of a sunroom averages 89% - 115% of original cost" making it an excellent investment for most homeowners,

The most important decision you’ll have to make when planning a sunroom is its location with respect to your home, and also considering the climate in which you live.

If your home is in the southern climate where temperatures are higher, an eastern exposure will help keep the room cooler since it will get more direct sun in the morning and shade the rest of the day. In northern climates, however, if you expect to use the sunroom often in the afternoon or early evening into the spring and fall, an eastern exposure might cause the room might to be chilly.

In the cooler temperatures of northern climates, a southern exposure is typically sought because it will receive the most sunlight each day. Whereas, in the heat of the southern climates, the sunroom with southern exposure might require air conditioning to create a comfortable living space.

Whether in the South or North, a sunroom with western orientation will typically be exposed to harsh afternoon sunlight that will need to be shaded.

In the North, a sunroom facing north will offer partial shade most of the day which can cause the room to be too cool and damp. However, in the warmer southern climates, a sunroom with a northern exposure would likely eliminate the need for shading or air conditioning.

Here at Security Fence Company in Red Lion, PA, our experienced representatives can help you explore your options – from location, elevation, materials used and more – to arrive at the perfect sunroom solution for your home and lifestyle.
