A professional gate installation service does not need to be done. You can accomplish it if you’ve got the right tools, time, and motivation. A video entitled “Gate Installation Video” is available via Gatepost’s Gatepost YouTube Channel. It provides instructions on how to install.
Wearing protective goggles is essential for protecting your eyes from dust and other debris. It is also essential to use the correct tools. The tools do not need to be used for welding however, they can be used for leveling, taking measurements and digging.
The following step is to identify the spacing between posts to be able to make holes. Make sure that the distance between both posts is equal to that of the gate’s poles. The depth of the hole must be 36 inches.
Since the pole is constructed of iron, it is important to install cement or paper in the base of the hole to avoid rusting. The hinge brackets will then be connected.
The test will show that each pole is equal in size and in parallel. This can be done using either a laser, or by string. After that, the gates are attached to hinges.
