Are you looking for ways to show off your patriotism to the world? Do you want to give your house a unique aesthetic boost? If so, then you need to purchase an outrigger flagpole kit to install on your house.

Doing so can give your front porch an awesome lift. The stars and stripes are the perfect complements to any residential property. It serves as the perfect reminder of what this country is all about! 

If you’re interested in hanging flagpoles on your house, then see below for more information on how to install a flagpole on a house the right way.

What to Consider When Buying a Flagpole for Your House

You’ve decided that you want to install a hanging flagpole on your house, but where should you go to purchase one?

Perhaps you’ve previously installed one that didn’t age well. If that’s the case, then you need to invest in a trusted brand. The longevity of the flagpole, whether it’s mounted or grounded, depends on the materials that it’s made of.

First, make sure that you’re purchasing a flagpole kit, not just a flagpole. Otherwise, you’ll give yourself a headache running to the nearest home improvement store for brackets, mounting plates, screws, and so forth.

Next, you should look for a high-quality flag. The best flags are made of nylon; it’s water-resistant, making it a tremendous material for flags that will be outside in the rain from time to time. 

Many mounted flagpoles come with a wooden flagpole, but steer clear of them. You want to purchase one that has an aluminum pole to ensure that it’s durable. Aluminum holds up well against the elements and is resistant to many harmful chemicals. 

Here’s the main takeaway: keep your eyes on the future. Make sure you’re purchasing a product that will keep its looks for years to come.

How to Install Flagpole on a House

The installation has never been easier. When you purchase the Outrigger Kit, you have all the tools you need to get the job done. The only other equipment you need is a pencil and your choice of screwdriver or drill!

1. Line Up the Bracket Holes

For those of you wondering why you need a pencil, you’re about to get your answer. Once your Titan Outrigger Kit arrives in the mail, you’re ready to install it. Start by grabbing the bracket and placing it where you wish to install it. You might consider placing the flagpole on it as well to make sure the flag won’t be hitting an overhang, hanging plant, etc.

Once you have the bracket where you want it, mark the holes with your pencil. Remove the bracket and pre drill the holes to make for an easier installation.

2. Install the Bracket

After you’ve drilled the holes into position, line the bracket back up. Grab the screws that came with the Outrigger kit and install each of them into the 55-degree bracket. 

Start by screwing each of them in with a few turns. Ensure that everything lines up and all screws fit perfectly before you tighten them. 

3. Place the Flag in the Bracket

There’s only one thing left to do! Attach your nylon flag onto the aluminum flagpole with the swivel attachment rings. Place the gold ball topper at the top and make sure that everything is in top-tier condition.

When you’re ready, simply slide the flagpole into the bracket. Make sure that the flagpole is fastened in before walking away.

It’s important to use proper flagpole etiquette, even with a mounted flag. Don’t leave the flag out at night unless you have a Titan Solar light to shine on it in the dark. Make sure the flag is never horizontal.

When installing the mount, make sure that the flag won’t be touching anything around it. This is used as a way to respect the power and symbolism behind the red, white, and blue.
