Top Notch Elevator Services Can Cover A Number Of Areas

byAlma Abell

Whether it’s your automobile or your business, maintaining something is always preferable to replacing it or having it repaired. The latter is always the more expensive choice and anticipating is usually better than reacting. Having regular maintenance work and inspections done on your elevator systems is a good way to avoid costly service work done later on, leaving you with cars sitting idle while they’re being worked on while your tenants and their customers are scrambling to find available cars to get to their destinations.

Professional Elevator Services in Washington DC should mean more than just doing a quick inspection to see that all is operational. An elevator system requires comprehensive inspection of the shafts, the cabins, the doors, and all of the actual equipment, whether it’s a hydraulic or a traction lifting system. These regular inspections may, eventually, lead to the discovery of enough wear and degradation that there is a need to upgrade the system. Because of the way elevators operate and their day-to-day use, the cabs and doors usually succumb to age and wear before the motors, pulleys, counter-weights and brakes do, so even though the behind-the-scenes equipment may still be working perfectly, the cabs may still need to be replaced. The good news is that those same highly-skilled technicians who maintain your elevator systems can provide this service, too.

Many older buildings in our area have undergone renovations and upgrades in order to save these pieces of history from becoming victims of the wrecking ball. They have been rewired to increase their abilities to provide electrical power needed for today’s computers, printers and copiers. They’ve been redesigned to handle large, powerful computer networks. Sadly, the elevators in these buildings may only get a mostly-cosmetic makeover. This lack of attention may come back to haunt some building owners and managers, since elevators and their associated shafts are still integral structural elements of these buildings and they may be ready for some renovations, themselves.

Elevator Services in Washington DC, such as Elevator Technologies, Inc. of Washington, DC can assess your elevator system and help bring it current with the rest of the building. They have years of experience in all types of buildings, large and small, and they can share that experience with you when you become a client. No matter what type of elevator system you have, or how old it st century.

How To Choose A Fence Installer

byAlma Abell

Adding a fence around your property is always a good thing. It creates privacy and ensures your animals and kids do not leave your yard. But, the key here is hiring a professional to do the work for you. When you choose a fence contractor, select a professional with ample experience and know-how. These professionals also need to be able to listen to your needs and provide you with recommendations. They need to know local building codes and be willing to work with you on permits. There is much to consider before you choose someone for fence installation.

What the Best Providers Do for You

When you need residential or commercial fencing, it pays to learn more about the company and the services offered. First, consider the products they offer.

Other material options are available as well. Next, be sure they have a solid reputation for providing the very best workmanship. How well the installation goes really defines just how well the project will look in three, four, and even ten years.

The Safe Design Of Quality Outdoor Light Fixtures

byAlma Abell

Outdoor lighting serves several different functions on a residential or commercial building. The primary functions include providing safety for movement in the dark as well as increasing security by keeping the exterior of the building out of the shadows.

There are some important differences in the design of outdoor light fixtures compared to those used inside the home or business. These differences in design provide longer life cycle for the fixtures even with the most extreme conditions of exposure to cold, heat, sunlight and moisture.

Outdoor Rated Fixtures

While it is possible and safe to use outdoor rated fixtures indoors, the reverse is not true and should never be considered as a lighting option, even when installed under covered areas.

The choice of rated outdoor light fixtures is important to prevent electrical problems when the light fixture is exposed to moisture. Even in a covered area where direct contact with rain or snow is not a concern, high humidity levels can create the same types of problems.

Outdoor-rated light fixtures are designed with sealed housings to prevent moisture from making contact with the electrical components and the bulb. Look for the rating and the words “weather resistant” or “UL listed for wet locations.”

Lighting Possibilities

When safety is a concern, choosing outdoor light fixtures that are designed to provide a higher level of lumens is always the best option. The higher the lumens, the brighter the light will be, with LED lighting options available in cool or neutral colors for different light intensities.

Take the time to consider the quality of the light fixtures as well. There are very well-made, heavy-duty fixtures on the market specifically designed for outdoor use as well as those that are very cheaply made. Selecting the top-quality fixture will provide years of outdoor lighting, even in the most extreme environmental conditions.
