What type of gate do you need?

Custom Gate Fabrication

Determining what type of custom gate is right for your project depends on several things like: budget, available clearances, site grade or slope, size of opening, soil type, existing adjacent fencing, driveway type, and the location of the project site. There are two basic types of gates, swing gates and slide gates. Slide gate installations are

generally more expensive than swing gates, because they require the installation of a track for the gate to travel on. We typically avoid making swing gates longer than 16'. Soil type should also be considered for heavier, longer swing gates because over time, hinge posts can start sagging in some soils. Get a free custom gate quote.
