Why We’re Different

CustomBuilt_sample

At Estate Advancements, we know you have options on where to design, purchase and install your new custom driveway gate. Our experience, skill and service is second to none in the industry; we are small enough to care, and big enough to look after every part of your gate process. We have full design capabilities. Look through our vast library of previous jobs for ideas. Bring your own ideas and let us help you build it. Our family-based, hand build custom production process ensures you will receive the best quality available to assure you worry-free quality for years to come.

 
Here’s a few other ways we are different from our competitors:
 
  • Our unique 8-step process that assures quality control all the way through the development of your gate.
  • Better accessories: in many cases, it’s the little things that make a big difference. Like hinges, for example. We offer a range of hinging solutions to match the gates weight, length and wind load. All of our hinges feature adjustability and smooth, friction-free action to reduce wear on the system. In fact, for our heavier gates we manufacture our own hinges in-house with 1-1/4″ diameter pins and dual axis adjustability. A few years down the road, you won’t need a service call because the weight of the gate has bent the hinges. For our electronics, we use the latest digital wireless technology that works now, and in the future.
     
  • Our gates are custom-made to the exact specifications you need. Some companies use imported pre-made frames and build off of those. This makes them mass-produced and low-quality. We have to meet your needs, rather than you settling for what costs us less to produce.
  • Single point of contact: We excel at looking after all design, production and installation of your gate or working with your other contractors to ensure the final product is what you need. Unlike other companies, we can look after the entire job from start to finish, seamlessly part of your existing team. We stand behind everything we manage on the project.
     
  • We look after the design, production and installation of the gate, so we can ensure the final product is exactly what you need and exactly the right solution for you. Some company’s only do one or two of these and sub-contract out the rest of the job. At Estate Advancements, we do it all from start to finish!
     
  • One word: service. It’s an idea that lots of companies talk about, but few truly deliver. With Estate Advancements, our family ensures that we deliver a full service model to you so that you are completely satisfied. It’s the pride in our work and a job well done. If you are as happy as most of our customers, you might even refer us to a friend!

Ken put in a gate system for us several years ago, and we couldn’t imagine living without it. It’s like having the front door down at the road!

The gate Estate Advancements put in for us last year has added security and style to our property. What put it over the top for us was Ken’s ability to integrate the gates with our home automation and security system.

10 years ago Ken Oag designed and made our gates and we’ve been happy with our decision ever since. It’s nice to know our family is secure and can control who has access to our property.

I was looking for an electronic driveway gate for my home in Caledon and was fortunate enough to have Estate Advancements complete the job. Ken was very punctual when it came to my initial consultation. He was extremely professional and provided a wealth of information that he was able to explain in simple terms. I chose Ken’s company because it’s a family owned and operated company and you deal directly with the owner. I find him to be genuine and honest in how he works with the client to meet the client’s needs and budget as oppose to upselling or having your original quote balloon at the end like some other companies. He gave me a quote and it stayed the same from start to finish. I was quite impressed with the quality of the gate and also the technological features that came with it. Installation went exactly as scheduled and both Eric and Matt were meticuolus in making sure everything was perfect. They were very polite and professional and when they had to enter the house they always removed their shoes even though it was unneccessary. It’s these small things that says alot about their character being respectful. Upon completion, Ken would take as long as I needed to learn the features of the gate. One aspect where Estate Advancements really shine is that Ken is always available by phone/text/email both before and after the completion of the job. It’s comforting to know that he will always be available for any questions or concerns as he takes great pride in his products and workmanship. Not only did I make a valuable investment, I also had the pleasure to meet a great family.
