When selecting the driveway gate installation spot, you should consider a place that allows for your vehicle to have enough space for the gate to be opened. You can imagine how your driveway gate will fully open and look for any object that might hinder its path, including any slop or uneven ground.

You can measure the distance between your posts before fixing them at least a few times. Changing the location for the post can be slightly difficult.

Use adjustable hinges to compensate for any small deviations or gaps. If you are having the driveway gate installation with pillars, we recommend we use posts just behind the pillars. This would save you from tons of effort and headaches of drilling into your pillars and will offer an easier mount to place your opener for more functional space.

No matter how confident you feel, it is good to go through all manuals before even starting the driveway gate installation. And have all your tools ready for the work.

Feel secure

Always put your security first. If you are new to driveway gate installation, it is better to hire experts. It may sound like an expensive way to do things but if you are serious about the security of your house, it is always better to choose what’s best for the security of your loved one without going too cheap.
