ThrowBack- White Picket Fence

Hello All!

Happy Throwback Thursday!

Here is a photograph of a home in the 1930's.

Check out the white picket fence!

Could it be more "picturesque"?

Summer Projects in the Fall


It is hard to believe how fast Summer flew by!
A lot of us start the Summer out with a big long checklist of the things we want to get done outside while the weather is warm, and some of it does get done, but if it didn't all get done, we hope it's because you took the time to enjoy the great outdoors with your family.
Yesterday marked the first day of Fall. It may be cooling off, but you still have time before the snow comes in.

If a new, or upgraded fence is still on your "To-Do List", consider the following:


THE ROCKEFELLER
This is an ornamental iron fence from the New York Collection at Roma Fence.

It is a classic beauty that only enhances the scenery it is placed in.

Click HERE to view the full New York Collection!





CHAIN LINK FENCE/ KENNEL

A Chain Link Fence is a great way to go when you don't want to obstruct the view. It comes in a variety of colours and benefits the safety of animals in children.

Click HERE to read more about our Chain Link Fence options, Kennels and Canine Castles.








WOOD FENCE

The traditional Wood Fence is always a great choice.

Our red and white cedar collection can give a very natural look and feel to your outdoor oasis.

For more information about our Wood Fence Options, click HERE!











If none of these fences seem to suit your style, we encourage you to read on.
There are plenty more options:

- Concrete Fence
- PVC Fence
- Snow and Safety Fences
- Agricultural Fence
- Automatic Gates

Working in the heat





When working in a hot environment it is so important to stay hydrated and cool in order to prevent any kind of heat related illness.

It seems logical, but sometimes we get so involved with our work we don't realise our body is overheating until it is too late.

This is when heat exhaustion and heat stroke can occur.

Common factors that lead to heat stress include:
- high temperatures & humidity
- direct sun or heat
- limited air movement
- physical exertion
- poor physical condition
- certain medication


The symptoms of Heat Exhaustion include: headaches, dizziness, light headed, fainting, weakness, moist skin, mood changes, irritability and confusion

The symptoms of Heat Stroke include: Dry, hot skin with no sweating, mental confusion or loss of consciousness, seizures, convulsions.


The best way to avoid heat stress is to keep out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time and find shade, avoid alcohol, caffeinated drinks and heavy meals and wear lighter clothing rather than dark colours and heavy material.

The things we miss everyday. . .




There are so many things we miss every day, so many signs we pass without looking, so many people we disregard and it’s okay, because we are busy.

But every now and then, it’s good to stop to recognise the things in life that are actually benefiting us.

Believe it or not, if you live in the suburbs, or off any major highways, you would be lucky to have a concrete fence acting as a sound barrier to the noisy traffic sounds.

Many may argue that even though the concrete structures are keeping noisy roadways to a minimum, they are an eye-sore to the general public. In the “olden days” we would agree.

But today, there are concrete fences that look, well, nice. It is amazing how far along the fencing industry has come.
We (at Duracrete Fence) have concrete fences that come in many colours & textures. In addition to the new looks and sound barrier compliments, these concrete fences hold up best against our Canadian climate. Over the years these fences fight off high winds, snow, slush and salt.

Bring it on, we say, Duracrete Fence builds their fences to last 50 years!!! (These bad boys can take a beating!)
 
Concrete fences are long lasting, tough, and reliable and a great alternative to the traditional wood and chain link options.
Now you know a little something about one of those everyday things you just don’t pay attention too!

Feel better? We do!
