22 Jan Saving Time & Money on electric gates
CUSTOMER SAYS – “IM THINKING OF HAVING MY DRIVEWAY INSTALLED BEFORE MY ELECTRIC GATES”
KEITH SAYS – Like many of our past customers this is a common mistake made by a decent majority. Having your driveway done first then deciding to have electric gates is the wrong way to go about it! This can cause massive disruption, the final finish is not as you imagined & the cost is going to propel!
Having your driveway laid first only means having part of it ripped out to enable structures to be laid which in the end will cost you more & will look … dreadful.
Electric gates require cables being laid down, posts or structures all for them to operate. All of which can be laid underneath your drive making most of them totally invisible or hardly noticeable. This is how we achieve the best possible finish! We liaise with driveway companies to ensure this happens.
OUR ADVICE – If you are in this position, have your cables, structures or posts laid first & then let your driveway company block pave,resin,tarmac or whichever floor finish you desire up to them. This will match your vision which you first saw! See below an example of how it’s done!
