There is a fascinating history to flagpoles that many of us have forgotten over time.

Scholten, we believe that the history of our flagpole is just as important as the history of our country. Our flagpole installation services are of the highest quality.

A Wooden Past

While the industry standard today for flagpoles is to use aluminum, they were originally made out of wood. While this is not surprising, few know that there were few alterations to the trees to fit flags. Individuals would find a straight narrow tree and have the bark and branches removed. This would typically suffice as they simply unearthed that tree and replanted it closer to home.  Over time, these flagpoles begin to rot at the base since they suffered complete exposure to the harsh dirt. In the early 20th century, steel replaced wood as it would last longer than wood.

Modern History of Flagpoles

Today, there is typically a concrete base where a flagpole is planted to protect it from corrosion. Aluminum is also an option because it has a higher stress level which is great for extreme climates and weather. The most advanced flagpole, though, is currently on the moon. This design of the flagpole had to be telescopic to reduce its weight on the ship. It also has a telescopic horizontal arm that keeps the flag straight in a nearly non-existent atmosphere.

If you have recently purchased your first home, one of the most exciting things about being a homeowner is that you can finally put up flagpoles in El Paso.  When you are living in an apartment or a condo building, you do not have your own land or your own outdoor space where a flag pole can be located.  Now that you are a homeowner, your land is yours to do what you want with- and that includes putting up flagpoles in El Paso.

Flagpoles are a great way to show support for your country, for a political cause you like, or for your favorite sports team.  In fact, if you and your spouse or significant other have bought your first home together, you can even put up multiple flagpoles so you can each choose a sports team or other cause to show support for. When you do decide to put up flagpoles in El Paso in your new home, however, you need to ensure that you make a careful and informed choice when you buy and install your new flagpole.  You want to think about the height of the flagpole, of course, as well as the mechanism for raising and lowering the flag. You also want to ensure that the flagpole is well made and can be installed firmly and securely into the ground so it will not be damaged by the elements and so it will not fall over and strike your home, vehicle, or people on or near your land.

K.D. Scholten has a wide selection of flagpoles in El Paso and we can help you to find the perfect flagpole for your new home so you can show support for your favorite teams. Call today to learn more.
