We want to be absolutely sure that every step of the job is done perfectly. So we use our unique 8-step process to ensure our premium quality shines through every step of the way! You will also know exactly where we are in the development of your custom gate, making it easy to track the project.
1. Discuss how you want your gate to work
a. The gate will soon become your ‘front door’, so understanding what your individual needs are is very important. Do you want the gate to open for guests automatically? Do you want to know when someone pulls up to the gate? Do you want gates to open for alarms? How do you want to operate your gate, either with keypads, and or remotes, and/or driveway sensors?
b. Do you require a sliding versus swing design gate, and understand the pros and cons of both?
2. Discover what style you are hoping to achieve with the design of your gate.
Do you want any fence sections? Do you prefer modern design over a classical wrought iron look? Would you rather have masonry pillars versus steel light posts?
3. Detailed custom design proposal
We make detailed custom design proposals based on your needs and wants. We clearly tell you what we are going to do, and disclose anything that may not be included in the original proposal. We want to prevent any surprises!
4. Present you with scale CAD (computer-aided design) drawing
We present you with scale CAD (computer-aided design) drawings based on previous discussions. You can either pick from our designs or further fine-tune with your feedback if necessary.
5. Meet with all trades people involved with the project
We arrange to meet with all trades people involved with the project (i.e. landscapers, electricians, security, and masonry). We ensure everyone knows what to do and understands the timeline. All discussions with our trades people are copied to you.
6. Produce gate in house
Unlike some companies, our gates are produced in house by our skilled employees with our high level of quality control.
7. Prepare site for installation
At the same time your gate is being created, on-site preparation work is scheduled and performed, such as installing steel hinge posts into masonry or as free standing light posts, conduits and excavations, etc.
8. Final installation
Final installation is scheduled and installed on the promised date. We meet with relevant automation/security system professionals to integrate the gates with existing systems if needed. Finally we perform a complete training session with you and your families to make sure all your questions are answered. And we are always just a phone call away should you have any future questions or concerns!
