What size flagpole should I install at my home?
It depends, most residential flagpoles are between 20′ and 30′ and made of either aluminum or fiberglass. The height of the home and the location helps in determining the right size. When the flagpole will be located near the home be sure the flag won’t fly too far above the roof, otherwise the flagpole isn’t really seen as a part of the landscape. If you took a picture of your home from the driveway entrance, the complete pole and flag should be seen in the photograph. When a flagpole is installed in it’s own area such as a field or garden, any height goes. The decision is usually determined by your pocketbook and how large of a statement you’d like to make. A 40′ white fiberglass flagpole with a 10’x15′ American flag, surrounded by colorful flowers makes a beautiful display and says a lot.
