How To Paint a Fence

paint fence

Pick a suitable day to do the painting. Certain weather conditions are ideal for fence-painting. Pick a day with no rain in the forecast. Ideally, paint on a day with calm winds and ample cloud cover. Breezes can kick up debris that can stick to your paint job; direct sunlight makes the paint dry too fast and saps its protective properties.

Decide how you want to paint a fence.

Long fence:

  • If you have a long fence, you probably will want to use an industrial spray gun to complete the job quickly. Aim lengthwise, along the grain of the wood. Spray downwind and wear a respirapallisade fence painttor. Be sure to cover plants to protect them from overspray. Always keep a brush handy, even if you opt for a sprayer, in case you need to do any touch-up work.

Short fence:

  • If you have a smaller project, you probably can complete the job using a roller on flat surfaces and a brush for detailed, hard-to-reach sections.

  • Wrought iron fence:  Because they're often intricately designed, it's best to paint iron fences by hand to get optimum coverage. A single heavy coat of enamel or automotive epoxy paint usually is enough

Risk Assessment is a High Priority

palisadeIt is vitally important that we have a very secure perimeter fence or wall to protect our property and family.  It is, and always will be our first line of defence, and, as such, we need to ensure that we have high-security fencing around our property to act as an effective deterrent to would-be criminals.

We must always ensure we know the legal requirements necessary for the erection of good perimeter walls and fences, to avoid unnecessary tearing down of a structure because we have not met the legal requirements.

This is where it is good to consult with experts like Country Wide Walling, who will be able to advise and guide us in making the best possible choice to meet out specific needs.

It is vital to perform a risk assessment to establish threats and consequences of any breaches in security.

You need to take into account whether your property is in a high crime area, and also whether there have been attempts to breach your existing security.

Sometimes you may need to re-evaluate your security, and the risks to see whether you have achieved an acceptable level of protection.  You need to get your security to as close to 100 per cent as possible, and always have the option to add to your protection by installing CCTV, or electronic surveillance systems.

male security guardAlways remember that it is not possible to make your property 100 per cent secure, as a determined criminal will still try and find a way through.

In very high crime areas, it is also a good idea to belong to an armed response group.   You need to do everything you can to ensure you have peace of mind and feel safe and secure in your home.

You need to check periodically that there have been no significant changes in the risk factors in the area you live.   
If there have been any real changes, you need to up your security in order to meet the new challenges.

Your Home is Your Castle

manufacturingYour fence is the first line of defence against uninvited intruders to your property.  If your home is your castle, then a good security fence is a must have.

The type of fence you choose to secure your property is very important, and can be the difference between good security and fence which is easily scaled and gives access to unwanted intruders.

Choosing the best materials and type of fence or wall is totally important and, as there are many options available, it is good to look into the different types available, then make your choice.

Prefab Concrete Walls and Fences have a huge advantage over conventional materials, such as bricks, blocks, or poured in place concrete.  It is far faster and cost effective.

Sliding Steel Gates

Sliding Steel Gates

Along with providing walling for your home, Country Wide Walling are also gate manufacturers and can install sliding steel gates and steel swing gates.   

When security is a high priority for you, and you install quality precast walls or fencing, you need to have the added benefit of a steel sliding gate or pedestrian gate, to ensure you have complete protection.   Country Wide Walling will not only erect your precast walling or fencing, we can also install a steel sliding gate, or pedestrian gate.  This will ensure you have a fully tailored package, with the added benefit of having contractors on site once only.

Steel gates have advantages over other types of gates, as they are strong and durable, and not easily tampered with, thus providing added security to your property.  Steel gates can have fancy shapes which will allow visibility inside your property, as well as allow you to see what is going on outside, without having to open the gate.   No need for a solid steel gate, the designs are aesthetically pleasing, and can blend in with the walls to compliment and enhance the beauty and value of your property.  Solid steel gates have disadvantages as they are very heavy and difficult to transport and install.

Wooden gates are not a good option, as it makes it easier for a burglar to cut through and break in.  If security is your priority, wooden gates are not an option, whether they are carved, or plain, they can be cut through and damaged. 

Your walls and gates are the first impression people have of your property.  Make it count.  

There are several companies operating nationwide who not only manufacture the gates, but also do the installations.   They will not only sell the gate, but in addition, offer a gate repair service, should it be required in the future.

 Wherever you are situated in Gauteng, let us install a steel gate with your concrete walls.   Have it done right, and ensure your peace of mind.
