A gate can be an excellent complement to a fence that you have just built. Not only is the team at Surrey Fence Builders excellent at building fences, we also build gates as well. No matter the type of gate you want installed, our team will be able to assist. Gates are commonly installed in both commercial and residential settings. It might be used for an extra layer of security or maybe just a way to partition the property. A gate provides natural security to any property. There are a wide variety of gates that can be installed and our team will work with you to make sure you are left with the right solution. Many of the gates we install can also be installed as an automatic gate (motorized) as well.
Gate materials that our client's most frequently request are as follows:
The most popular type of gate with our clients is definitely wood gates. Wood is a fairly easy material to work with and the different design options make it a flexible choice to match any landscape. Within wooden gates, there are a number of different finishes and styles to choose from. We'll work with you and your budget to ensure you walk away with the best option for your project.
As an example, you could choose pine as if you use the correct type of finish, you'll get a sleek modern look. It does require a little bit more regular maintenance as it becomes exposed to the outdoor elements over time. Our preferred option is cedar as not only is it visually pleasant, it is a naturally durable wood material.
Gates not only can be built with different types of materials, they also come in many different styles. You'll have access to options such as: straight tops, sliding gates, swinging gates, curved tops, driveway gates, horizontal gates, vertical gates, steel frames, and much more. Our gate installation contractors have experience installing all different types of projects and will make any situation work.
While more commonly seen with our commercial clients, metal gates can have a decorative element to them which can look great in a residential settings as well. The most common reason to use a metal gate comes down to the strength and security. One of the benefits of a wooden gate over something like wood is that it usually requires less maintenance work and provides much more overall durability. Typically a wooden gate should looked at every 1-2 years for overall maintenance while a metal fence will only require minimal touch ups every so often.
