Flagpoles and Flagpole Hardware Buying Guide

From touting national pride to announcing excitement for a holiday or season, flagpoles are a festive way for homeowners to express themselves. Here's an essential buying guide to flagpoles and flagpole hardware.

Types of Flagpoles and Flagpole Hardware

Types of Flagpoles and Flagpole Hardware

Many of us raise a U.S. flag nearly every day. Still others unfurl the stars and stripes on days of national celebration or sorrow. Some homeowners also use flagpoles to express "ownership" of a particular sports team or enthusiasm at a particular time of year, such as spring. There are a few types of flagpoles and flagpole hardware to consider if you're hoping to add one or replace one you have. Those include house-mount, in-ground, and indoor. Use this short overview to help you sort out the choices.

House-Mount

House-mount flagpoles extend away from the home or other structure; the pole is secured by sliding into a base that's mounted on the structure. These are shorter in stature than in-ground poles but easier to install and maintain.

In-Ground

An in-ground flagpole is secured into a base in the ground. These poles offer more height than house-mount flagpoles but are typically more expensive and more involved for installation.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Far from being a simple pole, flagpoles have accents and additions that can increase their flexibility, help them respond to your outdoor conditions better, and adequately support your chosen flag. That's why it's important to review certain purchase considerations before making a choice. Those include lighting; material; height; flag size; ornaments; truck and pulley; and snaps, counterweights, and cables. Use this helpful, quick guide to get started.

Lighting

Lighting can add dramatic beauty to your flag and flagpole at night. However, if you wish to light your flagpole, you will need a nearby power source.

Material

Most flagpoles are made from aluminum, wood, or fiberglass; the finish is different on each. Choose the style that best complements the exterior architecture of your home and your landscape.

Height

Your flagpole should adhere to any height restrictions or covenants present in your neighborhood or city. In addition, you should make sure your flagpole height is proportional to the buildings around it.

Flag Size

Based on height and strength characteristics, different flagpoles are appropriate for different sizes of flags. Before your purchase, make sure the two are compatible.

Ornaments

Ornaments are decorative elements used to top flagpoles. They include balls to other imagery such as eagles or crosses. The ornament should be sized to match the opening at the top of your flagpole.

Truck and Pulley

There are different kinds of flagpole trucks and pulleys, which determine how the flag is lowered and raised. What type you have will determine how you can pull and adjust the pulley of your flagpole.

Snaps, Counterweights, and Cables

These elements work together to make sure your flag flies properly and your pole maintains stability. They are also helpful if you want to fly more than one flag at once on the same flagpole.
