The Basics of Gate Installation

There are a few steps that you must follow during the gate installation process. Here are some of them:

  1. Measure the opening and the frame of the gate. Ensure that the frame fits the space and that the holes in the entrance and the locking bar match. If you can’t find this, buy another and drill the mounting holes yourself.
  2. Install the locking bar and the door. When the gate is mounted, place the locking bar in the center of the opening and center the entrance on the floor.
  3. Insert the gate and door into the locking bar.

Before committing to a specific style, consider the materials used to construct the gate. Different materials have different looks and textures.

Remember that your gate hinges determine the size of your fence gates. Most people underestimate their gate hinges and end up wasting money by installing undersized gates. For instance, pressure treated wood tends to become heavy during rain storms in the spring. For this reason, it is important to choose larger hinges when installing a fence gate. Self-closing hinges are also important for pool fences. Not only do they protect your family, but they also protect your pets.

Next, consider the materials. Your gate’s material can play a huge role in its durability and maintenance. Aluminum is great for its aesthetics and doesn’t rust when exposed to moist conditions. However, aluminum is not the best choice if you want a durable gate that will not detract from the beauty of your property. So, make sure to research all materials before you choose one. That way, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about what type of gate is right for you.
