Battling against the icy winter elements can take a toll on your driveway gate. You know the importance of preparing your home for the cold weather season, but it’s easy to forget about our automatic gates in these times too! Utilizing some preventative measures will not only safeguard your gate from extreme temperatures, but also save you time and money down the line.

Continue reading below to see what a commercial project should entail.


Take the Time to Complete a Comprehensive Analysis


The first step we do in preparing your driveway gate for winter is to carry out a thorough inspection. We look closely at all of the components of your gate to check that they are in good working order, and check for any signs of wear or damage, such as rusting metal or rotting wood, and repair them if needed. It is important to always pay close attention to any automated components, such as motors or sensors, as these are particularly vulnerable to cold weather. It’s also crucial to check that all moving parts are well lubricated so that they don’t become stuck due to cold temperatures or icy conditions.


Revive and Refresh Your Driveway Gate with Cleaning, Painting, & Staining Services


Once we have inspected your custom gate, it’s time to give them a good cleaning! Using a pressure washer to remove any dirt or debris from the surface of your gate. We will make sure that any paint or stain is still intact – if it is not, then another coat will be applied before winter sets in. This will help protect against moisture damage caused by snow and ice buildup. Additionally, a sealant will be applied after painting and staining; this will help create an extra layer of protection against harsh winter elements such as wind-driven rain and snowfall. Additionally, this sealant will protect any type of driveway gate; wooden estate gates, wood driveway gate, metal driveway gates, driveway barrior gate, and more.


Ensure Your Custom Gate is Guarded from Cold Weather, Snow or Ice Accumulation


Finally, we take steps to protect your driveway gate and driveway gate opener from the cold weather, snow, or ice buildup during the winter months. Making sure that there is no debris blocking the space below your gate (such as leaves). If possible, a rubber pad will be installed beneath the gate so that it does not come into contact with snow or ice when opened or closed; this will help prevent freezing issues due to temperature changes throughout the day and night cycles. Additionally, keeping up with regular maintenance such as clearing away snow buildup from around your driveway gate whenever necessary as this will help ensure their continued safe operation throughout the season!


Choosing the Perfect Security System to Keep You and Your Valuables Protected


When it comes to selecting the right driveway gate opener for your custom gate that will stand up during the winter, there are many factors that need to be considered.
