The original gates of this Basking Ridge, NJ home were in terrible shape.  The homeowners knew they were definitely in need of a replacement.  The homeowners liked the current style so much that they asked our team to rebuild an exact replica of their gate.  In only four days our team rebuilt, and painted this entire gate.

The original gate was built out of pressure treated lumber.  Pressure treated lumber is a durable material, great for exterior projects, but it is also very heavy. Over time the weight of the gate caused damage as it sagged, and eventually broke.  Over time the posts had also severely deteriorated and rotted.

Our team began the project by removing the broken gate and posts.  New 36″ footings were dug and filled with concrete.

Brand new pressure treated posts were build and secured into the new footings.  The posts were then wrapped in azek to further fortify them against the elements.

Our team used the old gate as a template, rebuilding the new gate to perfectly match.

The new gate was crafted out of cedar; a great material for outdoor projects which is lighter than the previously used pressure treated lumber.

Before building the new gate our team oil primed all of the pieces to ensure that they were carefully protected.

Once the gate was completely built it was given two coats of Duration Sherwin-Williams paint.
