A driveway gate, built with columns, requires a lot of care and attention to detail when installing the footings and internal skeletons. The column footing and internal skeleton will largely determine the quality and durability of the finished project. Posts set with a level transit will ensure that your gate functions properly for years. The use of heavy bracing will also secure an aligned position before concrete is poured.
The placement of a beam between the footing, when making a bi-parting gate, is also extremely important. It is vital to place a grade beam between footing when columns are installed. If this is not done, the columns will settle and the gates will no longer align properly.
