We’ve been up to it again!  Right Fence Company swooped in and saved the day for another happy client with great prices and superior quality.  This client was looking for something decorative to replace the four foot rotted wood fence she currently had in her breezeway.  With her tastes and pets in mind, we designed this custom locking double gate that now provides her upgraded security, a great way for her dogs to see the street view, and beautiful adornment for her home.  We created this gate for her large and small dogs, with a three inch air gap to keep the little dogs in, and scroll work up high enough to keep the paws of the larger dogs from getting hung up. We also installed Tru-Close hinges so the gates will always auto-close, and no dogs will run free!  A competition fence company originally quoted her an astronomical price for black steel and some cheap paint.  Folks, we all know where that gate would be in less than a year!  Rusted, busted and on the ground. For a better price we were able to offer her galvanized steel that has a thick and sturdy, glossy powder coat.  Remember, Right Fence Company can do any color you would like on any custom gate you can dream up, and we will always use galvanized steel and a signature powder coat AFTER THE WELDS! This client will be happy for years with this gate, as it will keep its sheen and be rust free for years to come.  Our valued clients deserve the best every time.  You can easily get a free estimate for your own project by clicking here.

A fence that has been allowed to deteriorate, particularly if the gate no longer closes and latches securely, is a liability. It won’t provide constant reminders that repairs are needed, like a leaking roof, but it still needs to be fixed. You could be subjected to a lawsuit if someone enters your property, even without your permission, and is injured. A well-maintained fence surrounding your property can reduce that liability.

Professional fencing contractors can be consulted for minor repairs, as well as new or replacement fencing, but there are many “do-it-yourself” steps homeowners can take to preserve the appearance as well as extend the useful life of their fences.

For winterizing wood fencing:
* Protect against dry rot. If it’s already invaded the wood, pry or cut the damaged section out, scrub the remaining fence with mild detergent or diluted bleach and replace the section you removed with the same type of wood that was used in the original fence. Then, prime and paint or stain the entire fence.

For winterizing metal fencing:
* Powder-coated aluminum needs little maintenance, but if the coating has worn off in areas, it will need to be sealed and repainted before winter weather causes the metal to rust.

* Steel or wrought iron fencing needs to be repainted when it rusts. Use a stiff metal brush to remove rust, wash thoroughly, then prime and paint with a rust-proof paint.

Gates and gate hardware are the only moveable parts on a fence system, so they’re subject to the most wear and tear. Rust and gate misalignment are the most common problems that prevent latches from engaging properly. If the gate does not latch each time it’s closed, the entire fence is ineffective….  (continued here)
