In terms of needing repairs, gates are the number one repair that we get called out on. Gates are moving part of the fence, which means it consists of moveable and wearable parts. If not properly installed, gates can sag over time causing damage to the movable mechanisms. Don’t settle for a gate that sags. If your fence needs a gate repaired or replaced, do not hesitate to call Alpha Fencing. We have many options to choose from, check out our great options below.
Wooden Framed Gates
As the name suggest, these gates are built completely out of wood. Because wood gates can get very heavy they have a greater the chance for premature failure of the post and the gate itself. In order to adjust to the weight it is highly recommended that wooden gates are no wider than four feet. For those customers interested in something larger such as an eight foot gate a double wooden gate would be a great option. In need of something even wider than eight feet? We strongly suggest you upgrade to a metal framed wooden gate.
Metal Framed Gates
Metal frame gates, unlike wooden gates, resist sagging and can easily be adjusted over time if needed. Because they are built with galvanized steel tubing and faced with wooden or metal fencing material they can withstand the weight. The steel tubes are attached to strong metal poles that have been cemented into the ground. This creates a gate that will not sag and will continue to operate properly daily. While these gates are more expensive than traditional wood gates, they make up for the cost over time with their durability. If you’re tired of dealing with gate that doesn’t close or one that is dragging the ground, call Alpha Fencing today.
It is our pleasure to offer cast iron gate installation. While these gates are expensive, they last a lifetime. Cast iron gates are hand built and can be designed and personalized to fit your home and personal style. You also have the ability to add a closing system that allows the gate to open and close automatically. This makes maneuvering heavy large gates an easy task. If you are in the market for a cast iron gate, give us a call and we will be glad to assist.
If your fence is in need of repair don’t hesitate to call today. We are excited to hear from you.
