Considering Difference Aspects of Wood Gates

The nice thing about Wood Gates is that they can be used with many different types of fencing. The gates work just fine with brick, stone, and wrought iron fences as well as wooden fencing. The trick is to ensure the gates do have the right features and detailing to blend in with the surrounding elements. Here are some points to keep in mind when considering different designs.

Function First

Ahead of all other aspects, those new Wood Gates must function efficiently. That means they must be sturdy enough to not sag, capable of holding up well to all sorts of weather, and be easy to open and close. Any design elements that would interfere with these essentials should not be considered. Rest assured there are plenty of other things that can be done with the gates and still get plenty of practical use from them.

Decorative Elements

Like the fencing, the gates can be as simple or as ornate as the property owner wants. For example, it is possible to outfit a wooden gate with some sort of wrought iron grill work or other elements. This approach works quite well when the fencing happens to be made of wrought iron. Even if the fencing is wood, it is still possible to add carvings, detail pieces, and other elements that help to enhance the look of the gates.

Treating the Wood

Making sure the gates are made using treated wood is fine, but don’t stop there. The contractor will likely recommend applying some sort of coating once the gates are painted or stained. This will boost the resistance to wear and tear from varying weather conditions. Remembering to have the coating applied again whenever the gates are painted in the years to come will minimize the possibility of needing to replace them.
