This page provides you the best tips for the most common problems regarding gates. Find out what to do when you have issues with your property, how to choose the right gate and how to keep its movement smooth.
Understand the benefits of gates
The best reason for new gate installation is enhanced security. After all, when you want to secure the property, you build fences and the gate will be the main entrance. When you also install a gate intercom system, security will be further reinforced since you'll control the entrance.
Choosing the right driveway gate
Although it's economical to buy single panel gates, their large opening radius can be a problem if the gate is narrow and if it needs to be close to the road. Gate repair pros at Malibu recommend checking the clearance on both sides of the driveway before buying.
Lubricate Your Gate
Many of the parts involved in your gate’s operation are metal pieces that move against each other regularly. As such, they need to be checked for wear and tear and treated for preventative maintenance. A common household lubricant is a great choice for the fittings in the gate’s hinges. Make sure to do this regularly, perhaps even make a note to remind yourself to do this monthly.
Is Your Driveway On a Slope?
If your driveway is on a slope, it may present additional challenges to residential gate installation. Contact the professionals at Gate Repair Malibu to schedule a consultation. There are many types and styles of gates that you may be interested in that simply won’t work with a sloped driveway. The large swing radius of a single-panel swing gate can be impossible to manage on an incline, for example.
