Process We Follow for Gate Installation & Repair

Initial Consultation

The process starts with an initial consultation at your property. Our technician will inspect your existing gate (if applicable) and discuss your needs and preferences for the new gate. We’ll take measurements and gather all necessary details about the project.

If you don’t have a gate yet, we’ll provide recommendations and ideas for styles, materials, and placement based on your property layout, usage needs, budget and aesthetic preferences.

Preparing Quotes

After the consultation, we will prepare a detailed quote outlining the full scope of work and costs for materials, labor, permits and any other expenses. We obtain wholesale pricing on high quality gate hardware and materials through our supplier network. Our quotes are fully transparent with no hidden fees.

Handling Permits

If your residential or commercial gate project requires permits from Athens-Clarke County, we will complete the entire permitting process for you from submitting paperwork to final inspections. This hassle-free service is included in your project quote.

Gate Design and Fabrication

Once you approve the quote, our in-house team will create CAD drawings and fabricate your custom gate if needed. We craft wood and iron gates from scratch at our local fabrication facility using specialized equipment. This in-house fabrication capability allows us to avoid outsourcing and keep project costs low.

Gate Installation Process

Our professional installers will arrive on schedule to install your new gate or complete repairs. The installation process typically involves:

  • Careful removal of any existing gate and components if doing a replacement. We salvage and recycle materials when possible.
  • Preparation of the installation site including digging holes for gate posts.
  • Installation of new gate posts and hardware if needed. Posts are strongly secured in concrete footing below frost level.
  • Hanging the new gate properly within the opening and attaching all hardware such as hinges and latches. Adjustments are made to ensure smooth opening/closing.
  • Testing operation and making any final adjustments for optimum performance.
  • Clean up of entire work area upon completion.

Quality Inspection

We will walk you through operation and maintenance requirements for your new gate installation once finished. A final quality inspection ensures your complete satisfaction. We also provide a 1-year workmanship warranty on all gate installations and repairs.

Automated Gates

For automated gate installations, our technicians will handle the entire process from planning through permits, installation, and integration with your preferred smart access control system.

This includes programming gate keypads, intercoms, WiFi capabilities and any other automated gate components required. We ensure full functionality for smooth automated access.

Emergency Services

If you experience sudden gate damage or malfunction, call us immediately for emergency repair service. We are available 24/7 to quickly restore and secure your property by fixing or replacing damaged gate components. Temporary barricades can also be installed if needed before full repairs are completed.

Cost of Gate Installation & Repair in Athens, GA

The cost of installing a new gate or repairing an existing one depends on several variables:

  • Gate size – Larger gates that require more materials and work time will have higher costs. Standard single gates up to 6 feet wide are most common for homes.
  • Gate design – More complex ornamental gate styles cost more than simple utilitarian gates. Automated gates are also more expensive to purchase and install.
  • Materials – Wood, vinyl, chain link, and wrought iron gates range widely in price from budget friendly to premium.
  • Additional expenses – Permit fees, demolition/removal of old gates, and site preparation will impact the final quote if required.

Given these factors, you can expect to invest $1,500 to $5,000+ for a new gate installation. Simple repairs often cost $200 to $1,000 depending on parts and labor needed. Contact us for an exact price quote tailored to your specific project requirements.

FAQs About Gate Installation & Repair in Athens, Georgia

What are the most popular styles of gates for homes?

Some of today’s most popular residential gate styles include classic wood plank, ornamental wrought iron, vinyl privacy, and chain link. The style you choose should complement your home’s architecture and landscape.

What gate material is most durable?

For maximum durability against weathering and normal wear and tear, we recommend using galvanized or powder coated steel/wrought iron. Wood gates can also last decades with proper maintenance. Vinyl is also resilient but more susceptible to impact damage.

Do I need a permit for installing or replacing a gate?

Permits are not required for most residential gate projects. But commercial, industrial, and automated gate installations typically need permits in Athens-Clarke County. Our team handles permitting for you.

What are the standard gate sizes?

The most common gate width is 4 feet for single gates and 8 to 12 feet for double gates. Gate height typically ranges from 4 to 6 feet tall. We can customize gates outside these standard dimensions too.

How long does a new gate installation take?

The installation process usually takes one to two days depending on the scope of work. More complex ornamental or automated gates with extensive site preparation work may take longer.

Can you match the design of my existing gate?

Absolutely. We can fabricate a new gate made of wood, iron, or vinyl to exactly match your existing gate’s size, style, colors, and other custom design elements.

How do I enhance privacy with my gate?

Using materials without gaps like wood plank, PVC vinyl, or solid panel metal maximizes privacy. Adding a trellis or arbor with climbing vines over the gate also naturally blocks views.

Do gates increase home value?

Yes, quality gate installations consistently increase residential property values. Gates make homes more private, secure, and aesthetically appealing to buyers and appraisers.

What maintenance is required for gates?

We recommend lubricating hinges annually, checking for level/plumb, sealing wood gates every 1-2 years, and touching up paint/finishes as needed to maximize gate lifespan.

How do I improve gate security?

Upgrading to lockable latches, placing gates away from climbing aids, installing warning signs, lighting, and security video surveillance will help deter intrusions. We recommend layered security.
