You can get help with anything to do with gates, from gate selection and installation to repair and maintenance. Most gate installers are experienced with a range of fencing types and can choose a gate to match your existing fence or help install a fence alongside your gate. Here are some of the most common types of gates and what you can expect with each service:
Need automatic gates or electric gates installed or repaired? These are a popular option for driveways, with everything securely locked away and you don’t even have to get out of your car to open or close it. Your technician will have experience with these types of gates, including how to set up access so that your gate can open smoothly via a buzzer, remote, keypad, or intercom. They’ll measure the area and recommend the best gate type to fit, with the most suitable opening methods (swinging or sliding). Your gate installer can order in your gate materials, before installing everything onsite and showing you how to operate your new gate.
Swinging gates are the most popular gate type because they’re simple to operate, with your gate suspended on a hinge, and held in place with a latch. Your gate installer will help recommend a gate style that will fit with your existing fence and other features, whether you need timber gates, aluminium gates, or even glass. They’ll order in the materials and assemble your gate onsite, ensuring its level and properly secured at the hinges. Finally, they’ll attach a latch at the correct height for easy opening and closing - with the option to padlock your gate for added security.
Sliding gates are ideal for homes with limited space on either side of the gate, or for larger gates along driveways, where a swinging gate isn’t practical. Your gate installer will begin by measuring the area and recommending some suitable sliding gates to fit. They’ll order in the materials and begin by installing your footings and metal tracks for the gate to roll on. Next, they’ll put in place posts for your gate. Then they’ll insert wheels into the bottom of your gate and slide it onto the track and lock it into place. Sliding gates do need regular maintenance to ensure they’re clean and well lubricated, and you may need to book sliding gate repair if your gate stops working smoothly or gets damaged.
If you have a pool, you’ll need at least one or two gates for safe access to your pool area. Your pool gate installer will help you select a gate that matches your pool fence, whether glass or aluminium. They’ll install your gate between fence posts, ensuring it meets the regulations for your local area. Common regulations include self-closing and self-latching, latches at a minimum height, and only outwards-opening. If your pool gate doesn’t open or close properly, you’ll need to book pool gate repairs as soon as possible to ensure your pool is safe and compliant.

I have two brand new stairgates which come with all required assembly parts and instructions. I would like one to be installed in a doorway and the other one to be installed at the bottom of the stairs. These require screwing to the wall and doorframe so I expect a drill will be required.

First, the back garden's gate hinges were broken to allow access and also post is rotten and needs replacing along with a padlock to allow security. Second, on the front garden I had a new iron door installed but it wasn't done fully so some drilling to install the side part so the latch can work (also take out the ones from the previous iron gate). Third some minor rubbish removal, I.e. 1) an empty red gas canister 2) some bricks along with a baby gate 3) 2 blue bags of garden waste and packs of correx( white light stuff builders put to protect flooring) in the front garden as per photos.

Looking for someone to complete the following work on a day to be negotiated. Work needs to be completed ideally in the next week: - Cut, measure and mount a handrail onto a masonry wall for use of staircase. Timber (oak) rail and 3 wall brackets provided but correct screws/fixing and wall plugs to be sourced according to wall type and bracket. Placement and handrail height to be discussed on site. - Cut, measure and mount a coat rail using remaining timber and 2 wall brackets. Placement and height to be discussed on site. - Fit provided baby gates at top and bottom of staircase once hand rail fitted. Fixings and wall plugs to be sourced to suit wall type. Placement and location to be discussed on site. - Own tools must be used
Josh was polite, professional and punctual. He communicated well and came up with alternative ideas to solve a problem we faced when building our coat rack. There were a couple of issues with precision of measurement which we had to account for afterwards but otherwise Josh did a great job.
