Custom Wood Gate’s offer a challenge in Florida due to the humid wet summer . Without careful design and fabrication premature failure is guaranteed .
The worn out Gate above was built by others without respect to gravity using screws to join wood members .This allowed separation of wood members over time causing the Gate to sag , Eventually water penetrates into cracks that form . Over time these cracks become larger holding moisture longer allowing rot to form ..
The process for building a high quality Gate is time consuming but more important is understanding how wood and weather interact . I use design and fabrication techniques that are superior to common methods .
I have built many Gates throughout Tampa Bay ,West Palm Beach and the Miami area .
I build all sizes of Garden and Pedestrian Gates . Custom Designs are my specialty.
