This is undoubtedly the most asked question we get from potential customers. The first step to any gate project is a substantial footer and a heavy duty post in the ground. The gate posts are what carry all the weight of the gate and therefore, must be concreted deep in the ground. This will ensure the gate does not sag over time. We custom build every gate, which allows us to make any gate design our customer wants. We also use high quality hinges to hang the gate. You must make sure the hinges are qualified and meet the specifications for the weight of the gate. As for the gate motor, it must be instilled with the correct geometry to insure that the gate motor performs smooth and correct. This will ensure a long motor life.
