    Driveway Gate Repair and Maintenance

    If you currently have a driveway gate and are having difficulty with it, you might want to consider giving us a call for a gate checkup. While automatic gates provide security and add curb appeal, if the power goes out and you don’t have a battery backup for your electric gate, you may be stuck inside or outside your home until the power is restored. If your driveway gate is dragging, jerks like a bucking bronco, or has simply stopped working, there are many things to consider. The first thing you can check on your own is if the batteries in your car remote are dead. Another problem you may encounter with your driveway gate is the chain may have become loose, causing your door to not open far enough. Below are some other issues you may encounter with an automatic driveway gate. To avoid lost time and to ensure that your gate lasts as long as possible, we suggest that you have your gate inspected and maintained at least once every six months. Additionally, if you notice any issues with your gate, including louder than usual operation, jerking when opening or closing, or an unusual decrease or increase in the speed of operation, call us immediately for emergency gate repair.

    • Electrical Sliding Gate Repair: Also called cantilevered gates, an electric sliding gate is a great choice if space is limited or your driveway is on a steep hill. These gates slide on a track so that you don’t need to level the ground as you would for a swinging gate. Automatic sliding gates were once exclusively used in commercial applications only are now used by thousands of homeowners across the Los Angeles area. And, as with anything that contains moving parts, things can go wrong with your sliding gate if it is not properly maintained. If your gate is particularly heavy or if it is opened and closed many times throughout the course of each day, you may experience excessive wear and may need us to come more often than the once every 6-month prescription.
    • Swing Gate Repair: While automatic swing gates are the most common type of automatic gate available, this distinction does not mean that they aren’t prone to falling into disrepair. Gate panels can be damaged and may need replacement if you accidentally hit the gate with your car. Children on bicycles running into the gate, bikes, and basketballs are other common reasons swing gates may need to be repaired. As far as regular maintenance goes, lubrication of the components is critical to continuous gate operation.
    • Vertical Pivot Lift Gate: These gates pivot 90 degrees into the air to allow you to pass through and then pivot back in place when closed. These gates are a great choice when space is limited on both sides of your property, such as in urban areas with very little room between homes. These gates and fencing can also work well in areas where snow and ice may accumulate and not allow a sliding gate to move on its slider. As with the other kinds of automatic gates mentioned, lift gates will need regular maintenance as the motorized controls that lift your gate must work against the force of gravity to lift the gate up and out of the way.

    From motorized gate openers that include slide gates and swing gates, as well as motorized overhead gates, G & G Garage Door has the technicians to repair and maintain any type of driveway gate system.

      Why We Suggest You Install An Automatic Gate

      What many homeowners imagine when they think about a residential automated gate is something out of the Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous. A winding tree-lined driveway leading up to a lavish mansion sitting atop a hill and a seeing golden gate that obstructs the view of the property. But, the reality is automatic gates are not only for the rich and famous. In fact, many gates available today are very reasonably priced. So, whether you own a home at the end of a lavish tree-lined drive or a rural home, an automated gate might be right for you. Below are some of the advantages of installing an automated gate.

      Increased Security

      One of the best reasons for installing an automatic gate is security. When you have the ability to control who enters your property and when you reduce the risk of someone committing vandalism to your property, or theft of your belongings. Some homeowners even have a home security company that monitors their property and will alert the authorities if there is an unauthorized breach of your gate.

      Gates Provide Privacy

      Besides the obvious additional security an automatic gate provides, you also gain security with a gate. If the entrance to your property were to remain open, passersby could easily see what type of vehicle your drive and the other personal property at your home. With an opaque automated privacy gate, you can evade prying eyes and enjoy your home and your family with peace of mind. Gates keep families safe.

      Gates Provide Safety

      Another advantage of installing an automated gate is the protection it offers your pets and children. Young children are curious and can stray out of your property and end up in a busy residential street. Without a leash, dogs tend to go wherever their noses take them. To avoid harm to your children and pets while keeping your family safe and secure, consider installing a residential automatic gate.
