Here are some tips for a better automatic driveway gate installation for you to consider. When selecting the spot for your gate, opt for a place that allows your vehicle to leave the roadway while waiting for the gate to open and be sure to envision your gate fully open. Look for any object that might obstruct the path including some uneven ground or driveway slope. Don’t forget to measure the distance between your posts before setting the gate at least a few time using some white flour to mark the spot.
When digging your post hole, do not make a perfectly round hole to help prevent the posts from twisting. When mixing the concrete, leave it a bit stiff because when it’s too soupy, you will have to brace your posts while they set. Use a level and plumb line when you set your posts into the concrete so your gate will hang properly. Now let’s take a look at these 44 beautiful automatic driveway gate ideas below to spruce up the front look of your house.
