Are you looking for ways to show off your patriotic pride to your community? Do you want to ensure that your flagpole installation efforts aren’t in vain?
If so, then you need to learn all that you can about what to look for in a sturdy flagpole. Doing so can help you ensure that you find durability and high quality.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for efficiency. There is a flagpole out there that allows you to have the best of both worlds.
See below for an in-depth guide on the top things you should look for in the flagpole you install on your property.
1. Telescoping Flagpole
Perhaps you’ve put off installing a flagpole due to the upkeep you’re afraid it will require. Maybe you’ve had a traditional solid metal flagpole before and weren’t happy with the results.
Whatever the case might be, you must learn about the new state-of-the-art flagpole: the telescoping flagpole.
As the name would imply, this flagpole can lengthen and collapse within itself. This makes for easy installation and daily use.
The Titan Telescoping Flagpole is loved by homeowners and corporate property owners all over America for its flexibility and durability.
Its telescoping design can benefit you in several ways. First, its aluminum material and telescoping body allow it to bend with high winds during a storm.
Traditional poles are eventually uprooted from the ground due to an inability to conform to the wind.
Second, the telescoping flagpoles make it easy for you to set up or tear down as you so choose. If you wanted, you could set it up each morning, then take it down to store safely in your garage overnight.
Simply lock it into the ground sleeve any time that you wish to use it, then take it down just as easily.
2. High-Quality Flagpole Parts
Just like any other improvement or addition to your property, you want to make sure you’re making the most of your home project budget.
A big part of that is investing in a sturdy flagpole with high-quality parts. If you only focus on finding the cheapest flagpole available, then you’ll get what you paid for: a cheap flagpole that won’t last very long.
Remember, this flagpole will be on your property for the next several years. High-quality parts can ensure that it stays durable, upright, and aesthetically pleasing.
But what should you look for in flagpole parts? Let’s start with the flag. You should opt to purchase a Nylon flag since it’s a durable material that can withstand the elements.
Next, make sure to find an aluminum telescoping flagpole. This is important for all the reasons we previously mentioned. It will hold up to the elements and ensure a strong, practical flagpole for your unit.
You should also look for a flagpole kit that includes the ground sleeve to install the flagpole. Make sure that the ground sleeve comes with easy-to-understand instructions as well.
Lastly, look for a flag with enough swivel ring clips for two flags, but always make sure the American Flag is at the top.
3. Find Your Perfect Length
It isn’t often that people consider the size of the flagpole they’re purchasing before they go to install it.
Imagine the horror of installing your flagpole for the first time, then realizing it’s too tall in comparison to your home. That height difference can make it look awkward.
Thankfully, reputable flagpole manufacturers will give you many different sizes to choose from.
The Titan telescoping flagpole comes in 15′, 20′, 20′ LT (Light Weight), and 25′. That way, you can determine the proper size based on the height of your house (EX: one-story vs two-story).
The location also plays a factor in determining the right size. If you plan on installing the flagpole in your backyard, for instance, then you’ll want it a bit taller to ensure the American flag can be seen from above your privacy fence.
4. Color Options
Most people assume that—like the traditional flagpoles of old times—flagpoles only come in one color.
That couldn’t be further from the truth. Flagpole manufacturers realize the importance of finding a flagpole that fits with your home’s exterior aesthetic.
The Titan flagpole comes in three different colors for you to choose from: silver, light bronze and black bronze.
We always recommend matching the flagpole color with the accent color of your house. For example, if you have other black features (EX: black fence, black trim on your house), then a black flagpole will mesh with it beautifully.
5. High Return on Your Investment
We briefly touched on this earlier, but it bears worth repeating: you should always view your flagpole purchase as a long-term investment.
The trick isn’t to find the cheapest flagpole on the market; that will cause you to wind up with lackluster results.
Instead, you should focus on purchasing from a reputable brand that manufactures in America, offering state-of-the-art technology and high-quality materials.
This will ensure that your flagpole keeps its youth over the next several years. You’ll enjoy the site of the American Flag flying over your property for the foreseeable future without experiencing any setbacks.
