Gates Installation and Construction Mesquite, TX
We all have fences in and around our neighborhood such as in our good old Mesquite city itself. For most us, this is more than enough to get by. But for those of us who have a little more real estate, we likely have a gate or at least enough space to get a get one installed.
If you're simply looking to get a gate installed for your home, or your commercial building then you may want to consider the type of gate you want. Too often, fencing companies provide a limited selection, and too often we are not as satisfied with the end result. It sometimes gets worse when no details are discussed with you whatsoever before the project begins. For example, a fundemantal aspect of any gate install project to consider is how you want it to open and close. How far out do you want it to open? Will it block a certain pathway? Will it need to clear off certain areas, regardless of whether it is opened or closed? It helps to discuss these basic requirements. It is even more helpful to be educated of the different types so that you can find the right contractor to get the job done.
Double Sliding Gate
This is exactly what the name implies. You have two sliding gates that come together to form a closing. The obvious advantage here is that it will never obstruct anything or anyone. Most (if not all) times this is constructed with ornamental iron material and is perfect for large entrances.
Probably the most common type on this list, this can really come in any material of your choosing. This is also the one where you'll have a plethora of styles to choose from. These days they are being installed as an automatic gate, and are ideal for a smaller opening.
Meet the double sliding gate's ancestor, the traditional sliding gate. As you may already guessed, this one will have a single sliding gate which you can choose to have installed on any side of the wall or fence. This one's a great all-rounder as it can be used for the smaller and larger entries.
When you are really hard-pressed for space but you really do need a gate installed, then look no further than the bi-fold gate. This usually comes in the wooden flavor and is going to a manual one. Instead of opening wide like any typical swing gate, here the bi-fold gate does exactly what it's namesake implies, it folds twice inward.
We hope you now have a little more clarity on how you'd like your gate fitted. It is an all-important project as it not only provides protection, but really acts as the first impression of your home. By being a little more aware of the different types, we hope that it'll help you choose the best type of gate that will serve you aesthetically and functionally.
