Follow These Tips to Maintain Your Gate
Our expert panel of skilled technicians has composed these tips that you can follow to ensure that your driveway is well-maintained. Our technicians are capable of fixing any problem, but trying out these easy-to-follow suggestions can go a long way in improving your gate’s lifespan.
Keeping your driveway gate clean
A dirty driveway gate isn’t the best-looking thing out there, but besides the aesthetics, a clean driveway gate means a smoother moving one too! Small stones might get stuck on the rails resulting in your gate getting stuck. Your gate might also become rusty and the metal might start flaking off, which is dangerous for small children or pets. Here at Gate Repair The Colony, we suggest that you wash, and wax, your gate at least once a year to keep it looking fresh.
Remove insects and pests
Not only can pests be a real pain, they can also do real damage to your gate’s hardware and electrical components. The first prize would be to get a really high-quality gate that already has preventative measures, such as having the circuit boards in more secure enclosures. However, whether you have the most expensive gate or not, you must still ensure that the gate is free of pests. Just have a quick check every evening for any unwanted guests and simply remove them, easy as that!
