Gate Installation Process

The process of installing a residential gate requires several steps. The first step involves obtaining the necessary posts and hardware. Then the gate itself must be built. Then post holes must be dug, the poles inserted, and concrete poured into the holes to secure the posts. Finally, the gate must be secured to the poles and the opening mechanism installed. The entire installation is tested to ensure that everything works properly.

Gate Installation Timeline

Many homeowners are disappointed to learn that gate installation is often a lengthy process. However, rushing through a job isn’t an option. The total timeline from initial submission of a homeowner’s specifications to completion often requires at least a month, sometimes longer. After the homeowner submits a photo or other specifications for the gate, assembling the necessary parts can require several days or longer. Each gate is custom built, this process alone often requires 1 or 2 weeks.
