At J&J Gates Service and Design, we install custom gates in Fort Worth, TX for both residential and commercial properties. Should you have a gate installed on your property? These are some of the benefits of automatic gates:
For starters, other companies perform the same service as we do, but usually, they contract the work to us. That’s because automatic driveway gate repair and installation is all we do! We also have an A+ rating from the BBB you can check here for yourself. It’s our goal to make sure you get the perfect security gate style for your home and property. And most installations are finished in a week or two. Personal service? Proven track-record? Speedy installation? Check. Check. And check.
And make sure you talk to us in person. You’ll love our friendly, down-to-earth approach. You’ll realize we can walk you through the entire gate installation process so you get a gate that amazes you and your neighbors. And you’ll love the fact that you don’t face any intense sales pressure.
Good question. Don’t worry because you’re not stuck inside or outside your property. Your gate can be installed with backup battery power for situations like this. Other means of an emergency bypass, like a manual opening, can also be installed. It depends on your preferences and budget.
Much of it revolves around how other people will gain access to your property. For example, what if you need a delivery done, someone to do a repair on your home or property, or a monthly meter reading from the utility company?
Don’t forget, you may also get a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance with your gate, depending on the company and your policy. And you may also have to pay some additional insurance premiums for coverage to damage on your automatic driveway gate.
If it slides, you’re looking at about 1 foot per second, times the length of your sliding gate (10 – 20 feet usually). If it swings open, that’ll be much faster and around just a few seconds or so.
Not a ton, but automatic driveway gates do have a little maintenance. Some of it involves lubricating the parts so they don’t get damaged and worn as easily. Electronics need to be kept clear of pests and their nests, and spider webs.
Higher-end gates actually require lesser maintenance than cheaper ones. They can have sealed bearing hinges, which are maintenance-free. However, even these gates need at least a yearly look from a professional.
