Yes. We install gate opener packages.

Which gates are better, steel or aluminum?
It depends on our customer’s needs because steel and aluminum each have their advantages and disadvantages.
Steel is very strong and durable but is also relatively heavy and will rust if not properly coated.
Aluminum weighs 60% less than steel, is extremely corrosion resistant and exceptionally strong for it’s weight. Aluminum is also more expensive than steel and more challenging to work with.
Keeping those factors in mind is helpful when considering which material to use in the construction of your gate.
How much do steel and aluminum driveway gates weigh?
Steel gates generally weigh approximately 25 lbs per linear foot. Therefore a 10′ steel gate panel would weigh approximately 250lbs.
Aluminum gates generally weigh approximately 8.3 lbs/ft. Therefore a 10′ aluminum gate panel would weigh approximately 83lbs.
These weights are rough estimates only, please contact us to learn more about a specific gate you may have in mind.
How much will my driveway gate cost?
Depending on the gate design and material, from $200-400 dollars per linear foot. Therefore a 10′ gate panel would be anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000.
What is the process for buying a custom driveway gate?
Once the customer chooses a design we ask for 50% down payment to begin building the driveway gates for your project. The remaining balance is due at the time we deliver your gates.
How much do you charge for custom designs?
Many of our designs are free. Depending on the complexity of the project we may require a design deposit of $300-$500 which is ultimately applied towards the down payment to begin actual construction of the gate.
How long does it take to build my custom gate?
Our lead time to completion is usually 1 to 4 weeks from the time a down payment is made. Larger or exceptionally intricate projects may take longer to complete.
How will I get my driveway gate?
We can either deliver and install your gate or have it shipped directly to you via freight. We have shipped to nearly all lower 48 states. We can also hold your gate until you are ready to come pick it up at our facility.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept personal & business checks. We also accept Paypal for an additional 2.9% fee.
