The Advantages of Post and Wire Fences for Farms

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Feb 24, 2024 8:15:00 AM

Enhanced Security

Post and wire fences provide enhanced security for farms by acting as a physical barrier to keep intruders out. The sturdy construction and height of these fences make it difficult for trespassers to gain access to the farm and its contents. Additionally, the visibility offered by the wire mesh allows farm owners to easily monitor the surroundings and detect any potential threats. There’s also the security of confining your livestock and crops within a secure area where they are less likely to be harmed.

For added security, post and wire fences can be equipped with additional security features such as barbed wire or electric wires. These additions provide an extra layer of protection against intruders and deter them from attempting to enter the farm premises.

The Ultimate Guide to Replacing a Subfloor

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Jan 6, 2024 8:15:00 AM

The subfloor is an essential component of any flooring system. It provides a level and stable base for the finished floor materials, such as hardwood, tile, or carpet. Without a properly installed subfloor, your flooring can develop various problems, including sagging, squeaking, and unevenness. Making callbacks and repairs inevitable.

The subfloor also helps to distribute the weight of the occupants and furniture evenly across the floor joists. This prevents excessive stress on the joists and ensures the floor's structural integrity. Additionally, a solid subfloor acts as a barrier against moisture, preventing water damage and mold growth.

To avoid costly and timely callbacks and repairs, consider Beck’s SCRAIL® SubLoc® Pro. This system enables quick and uncomplicated installation of sub-floors and, thanks to the special thread of the SCRAIL® nail screw fasteners, guarantees resilient sub-floors without creaking and squeaking even after years.
