New back gate in Tideford

Made to measure back gate

It's good to be back to work after Christmas and this is one of the first jobs of 2019, a made-to-measure back gate for a new customer in Tideford.

The previous gate had not been made well and fell apart during the gales at the end of 2018.  As the customer has dogs, she wanted it replaced fairly quickly. We measured it up just before Christmas and the new gate was fitted on the 4th January. The old gate was also rather high and imposing so the customer opted for a slightly shorter replacement.

It was made from pressure treated timber with tongue and groove boards. All screws used were stainless steel and it was also glued with PU glue. The existing posts were in reasonable condition so it was decided to retain them but one was slightly out of upright so the gate had to be made to fit. The job turned out well and the customer was very pleased with it.
