What Others Say About Us…
Frequently Asked Questions
See below for the answers to some of our most common questions, if you have any other questions, please contact us.
How do I care for and maintain the metal in my gates, fences, pergolas or privacy screens?
How long will my project take?
As a general rule of thumb we work with 6 weeks from payment of a deposit until completion. This can be greatly affected by weather conditions, suppliers and the finishings that you require. For a more accurate guide on timings please email the Designer Gates team.
How do I maintain my automatic motor and accessories?
Automatic gate openers, intercoms and other electronic accessories should be serviced on a yearly basis. Ensure that organic materials are kept clear from the equipment e.g. dirt, grass clippings, leaves. Any damage to the equipment or unusual equipment operations must be inspected and repaired immediately.
