Outstanding gate installation and maintenance services for all types of gates.
For questions about gate repair and door maintenance, our experts have the right answers.
Sprinklers are reaching my gate. Is this okay?
No, it is not okay. Moisture of any kind can eventually damage even the sturdiest of gates, and sprinkler water is included. Move the sprinkler away from the gate if possible. If not, adding an obstruction to the sprinkler’s path to the gate is a viable alternative.
What are the different types of gate operators?
Gate operators come in a number of types. They could be sliding or swing gate operators specifically designed to match gates that swing or have sliding gate rollers. They could also be electromechanical and hydraulic based and can be installed underground, partially concealed, or fully conspicuous. Our gate professionals suggest examining your needs and preferences first to find the best option to get.
What are the most important parts of a gate?
While there are different kinds of gates, and even more models of gate openers in the market, there are certain parts that you need to pay more attention to. Our Gate Repair Glendale specialists say that the operator arm, the motor, the connectors, and the remote are important parts of any gate opener system, and should be cared for very well.
What should I watch for when inspecting for damage?
Our specialists recommend that you take a close look at the moving parts of the gate and gate opener, especially the hinges and wheels for sliding gates. There may be other signs of damage not easily detected by the untrained eye. Check when the last time you had gate service maintenance.
When is a sliding door more advisable to use?
Gates are installed for convenience. So when you have a place that is near the main road and your area is rather small, a sliding gate is the gate to consider. It needs lesser space and does not obstruct the road even if it is open. It is also easier to operate as it has a track that facilitates the easy opening and closing of the gate.
What is better: a keypad or a remote control?
Experts at Gate Repair Glendale recommend the use of keypad over a remote control. The keypad gives more security as you have to program codes to grant access to your premises. It also can be programmed to have the gate opened longer or deny access by locking out anybody. The keypad contains a command “Hold Open” that keeps the gate open and “Lock Out” to lock the gate completely.
