How to choose the right gate vendor?
Gates are tricky to design properly, fabricate precisely to the plan, and install correctly. Constructing a Gate from A-Z is a complicated process. It requires the vendor to be very detailed oriented with all stages of gate craftsmanship, and it requires specific knowledge and experience with safety and security systems integration. (It is not recommended to work with three different vendors on one gate project, because they will all blame the other for any and all problems leaving you in the middle.)
Maintaining high quality control all through the process, verifying the quality of the materials, the quality of work and craftsmanship, and staying on top of deadlines and promises to serve the client are all key to doing this business well.
Designing, fabricating, finishing, and installing a gate, particularly for a hilly terrain, can be a serious challenge to complete correctly so that the gate works smoothly and properly for years to come.
The terrain is often overlooked and can be the cause of sinking posts, gates touching the ground and falling out of proper calibration, which then requires endless maintenance and adjustment, (we are very familiar with this as service calls to repair such gates are a big part of our business).
Experienced gate companies like Mulholland Security will save you time and money because of issues like this.
Always ask how many gates the vendor has fabricated in the previous year; they should know. Ask who actually fabricates the gate; do they outsource the work or do it in-house? Ask them how they follow up to ensure proper quality control.
How many years of experience do they have?
Ask to see client testimonials, and reference letters; the most serious companies even have video testimonials.
