We’ll take care of everything else.

Choosing the Right Gate for Your Home

The first consideration is the width of your space. Smaller driveways do well with swinging gates. Most in-city homes use swinging gates.

Wider driveways, or private roads you’re trying to block off, do better with sliding gates. You’re more likely to find sliding gates in a rural home.

Your gate will be made out of iron. For a longer lasting gate, you can choose to have it galvanized or powder coated. These gates require very little maintenance. If you choose to go with the basic iron gate, just add an annual coat of paint to seal off the rust. Because of Houston’s high humidity level, many customers prefer to spend the little extra to keep their gate from rusting sooner.

The custom made gate will determine the first impression people receive when they come to your property, so make sure it reflects your tastes.

Dependable Gate Operators

If you don’t have a dependable gate operator, your gate becomes a nuisance. It’s vital for you to be able to open and close your gate with ease. It should include provisions for when the power is out and should be convenient for you to use.

We not only install gate operators, but we maintain them, too. You can expect peak performance from any of our gate and operator combinations.
