Tips for Choosing the Right Flagpole
Whether you want to fly a flag outside your home or business, the type of flagpole you purchase is very important. There are several factors to consider, including material, color, and height. Below, we’ll go over the top items to factor when choosing your flagpole.
The material of your flagpole is the first thing you should consider. Aluminum flagpoles are a great option for those who want a traditional, old-school look to compliment their American-made flag. For some customers, aluminum flagpoles invoke nostalgia and memories of their childhood. However, in the modern age, fiberglass flagpoles have quickly become the go-to material for most homeowners and business owners. Fiberglass poles provide a sleek, clean look to any home or landscape, and its natural construction is very forgiving to the harsh elements of Mother Nature.
The next thing you’ll want to consider is color and finish. For aluminum flagpoles, the standard finish is silver satin brush, but they can also be ordered in white powder-coated, clear anodized, bronze anodized, or black anodized. When it comes to fiberglass, the colors are endless! The standard and most popular fiberglass flagpole color is white, but poles can also be ordered in black, bronze, dynamic bronze (a metallic look), our special faux-luminum (fiberglass that looks like aluminum), or even a custom color of your choosing.
Another important factor in choosing a flagpole is height. If your flagpole is too short or too tall, it will look out of place and tacky. For most homeowners, we always recommend that the top of the flagpole should match the gutter line or uppermost peak of your house. However, for homes and businesses with a large front yard, backyard, or a corner lot, your flagpole can be a bit taller and fly a larger flag depending on how far the pole will be from the building.
