Gates are the number one repair that we get called out on. Gates are moving parts and have wearable parts. Gates can sag over time if not installed and maintained correctly. If you have a fence that needs a gate repaired or replaced, do not hesitate to call Slidell Fencing. If you need a new gate installed, check out our great options below.
Wooden Framed Gates
These gates are built completely out of wood. Wood gates can get heavy very quickly. The heavier the gate, the greater the chance for premature failure of the post and the gate. It is highly recommended that wooden gates are no wider than four feet. That makes it possible to install an opening of eight feet with a double wooden gate. If you need a wider gate than eight feet, we strongly suggest you upgrade to a metal framed wooden gate.
Metal Framed Gates
Metal frame gates resist sagging and can easily be adjusted over time. These gates, while heavy, are built with galvanized steel tubing and faced with wooden or metal fencing material. They are then attached to strong metal poles that create a gate that will not sag and will operate properly daily. While these gates are more expensive than traditional wood gates, the added cost pays for itself over time. If you’re tired of fighting to keep your gate closed or your gate is dragging the ground, call Slidell Fencing today.
We are proud to offer cast iron gate installation. While these gates are expensive, they last a lifetime. Hand built, these gates can be designed to fit the needs of your home and your style. Having the ability to add closing systems that allow the gate to open and close automatically can really add to the usability of the heavy large gates. If you are in the market for a cast iron gate, call us today, and we will be glad to point you in the right direction.
If your fence is in need of repair don’t hesitate to call today. We are excited to hear from you.
