Electronic Gate Operator
Electronic gates need a source of electricity to operate. In Houston, with its fierce storms, it is especially important to protect the circuits from power surges, water and lightning. There are several ways to go. The most common setup is to connect the drive motor to an electrical outlet nearby. There are several ways to control who can enter, and we are happy to discuss which ones will suit you best including:
Battery-operated motors are an economical choice for gates that are located in remote places, such as the back road on large acreage, but they work better as a backup in case of a power outage. Call now for a free estimate on the best access controls in the industry, including BFT brand electronics and Locinox magnetic locks.
Iron Fencing, Railings and Decorations
Wrought iron has provided nearly indestructible barriers for millennia. But it also adds a timeless, sophisticated element to your landscaping and interior design.
Outside – We can create custom gates and fencing that makes an elegant statement about your land. Our hand forged scroll work is created exactly to your specifications, and can be as basic or as fanciful as you like. Straight or twisted pickets, open baskets, knuckles, flowers, vines and popular Texas star motifs are hand wrought into durable beauty in our own fabrication shop.
Inside – Grace your foyer with a grand staircase flanked by sturdy, stair rails and balusters. Add a beautiful balcony, wall hanging or columns.
Do you need a spiral staircase? Indoors or out they offer a perfect solution to small spaces or add majestic flair to a plain backdrop. We construct them out of top quality metals, place them in the sturdiest spot, and add all the grace notes you like, from wood hand rails and treads to intricate scroll work patterns.
Pergolas and Decks
Pergolas – We do decorative cedar pergolas for patios and outdoor sitting areas. Made from rough cut cedar and premium materials that can be stained to protect and maintain beautiful appearance for years. Although most pergolas are for shade, we can put a protective transparent cover on the top that will also keep you dry while letting light in.
Decks – We also build custom decks made of treated pine or Ipe. Ipe is a Brazilian hardwood that is extremely dense and long lasting. It is so hard that termites cannot eat it and will last up to 50 yrs. We highly recommend this for decks and custom fences.
We believe in priming and painting our metal rather than hassling with the mess and expense of powder coating. We make repainting low-cost and easy. If it chips, it takes just an hour or two to fix. We also believe in driving our gate posts more deeply than most companies – a full five feet. In fact, we have dedicated equipment to do this. This ensures your posts will resist ground movement and shifting soil for decades.
We are licensed and insured to $1 million in liability. We understand local building codes and ADA guidelines but what our customers appreciate most is that we work hard to please. You can check it out for yourself in our A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau and our Super Service Award on Angie’s List. That means zero complaints about our work. That’s a record you can trust when planning your fence, gate design or decorative scroll work.
