What types of poles do you have?
Our most popular poles are fiberglass, but we also install our economical steel poles as weel as aluminum. The heights of the poles range from 20ft to over 40ft.
Do you install?
Our prices include installation, but we also do deliveries. In addition we repair, paint, and service existing flagpoles.
What is the difference between internal and external halyard?
In an external halyard, the rope that hoists the flag is exposed, and an internal halyard contains a winch system inside the pole. The internal halyard provides ease of operation and security.
Do you sell flags or flapgpole accessories?
Yes, we sell any type or size of flag.

How are poles mounted?
For ground mounted poles, either use a cemented ground sleeve or a hinge base/rebar system. We also do roof and wall bracket mounting.
What about lighting?
Please contact your favorite local electrician for lighting as we are unable to provide this service.
Flag Care Tips:
|STORE DRY to prevent mildew. Hang flag evenly to dry.|
|RAIN/SNOW causes strain on the fabric and stitching. Added water weight makes the flag snap harder in the wind causing premature wear.|
|INSPECT your flag regularly. The smallest tear can soon result in a tattered flag. It is common for the "fly ends" of your flag to show signs of wear first. Trim off and re-hem torn or frayed hems.|
|CLEAN regularly. Dirt and pollution cut fabric and dull colors. Most outdoor flags can be washed with mild detergent and rinsed.|
|LIFE EXPECTANCY on the average, flown 24 hours a day, 2-3 nylon flags or about 2 polyester flags a year are used. It is possible for a flag to last less than a month when the weather is severe.|
|HAZARDS are tough objects the flag hits when flying, such as a building, branches, wire cables, a poorly maintained flagpole (rust, corrosion, frayed rope, chain). Do not fly a flag under these conditions as the flag will become torn and shredded.|
|WIND VELOCITY is stronger at the top of the pole tan at ground level. Spring and Fall are traditionally the worst seasons for flags. One severe storm can easily tear apart a new flag, so in windy weather take down the flag and store until the wind decreases.|
