Installing Your Perfect Gate in 4 Easy Steps

Everyone’s perfect gate is different, so there are a few factors to consider when you want to build a new one. Keep the following considerations in mind before you get started.

1. Meet An Outdoor Living Representative

Making decisions about your fencing system’s gate should be fun, where you work with someone who is an expert in the field and can guide you through the process to create your dream outdoor living space. That’s where our on-site representatives come into the picture.

When you meet with Outdoor Living experts, they’ll give you design considerations based on a myriad of factors like price range, fence style, and house appearance. It’s our representative’s responsibility to narrow that focus for you and get you on a path to a perfect custom gate.

Popular gates we install include:

  • Garden fence gates
  • Privacy fence gates
  • Picket fence gates
  • Wooden gates
  • Aluminum gates
  • Wrought iron gates
  • Steel fence gates
  • PVC/vinyl fence gates
  • Driveway gates
  • Single gates
  • Swing gates

2. Select Your Material

One of the primary considerations you’ll have to consider when choosing a gate is the type of material you want. We offer fence posts, fence panels, gate latches, gate hardware, boards, and railing consisting of aluminum, vinyl, composite, and more.

Generally, the material you use for your fence will match the material you use for your gate. For continuity, we also typically recommend you use the same color scheme. For example, if you have a heavy-duty black metal fence, you will likely need a black steel gate for a seamless look.

That said, sometimes a different material or color can help make your gate a focal point along with your fencing system. When you want to make a statement or add a pop to your yard, let us know so we can select materials and styles that perfectly complement each other.

Whatever you need, our company can supply the materials and complete the installation to your complete satisfaction.

3. Budget the Gate Costs

With so many variables going into each gate project, there is no single one-size-fits-all estimate.

That said, our pricing structure is always transparent. You will know exactly what you’re getting and how much it will cost you throughout the installation process.

4. Keep in Mind Other Considerations

Your gate is the entryway for your yard, so it’s going to see a lot of traffic. With that in mind, you should consider the following:

  • Who exactly the fence is keeping in… and who it is keeping out of your yard. Some fences might need additional security measures to keep out intruders or a child-locking system to keep young ones in the yard, for example.
  • Some fences might require handicap-accessible features, like ADA-compliant handrails.

No matter your specific needs, we provide a personalized solution.
