Extend the Life of Your Gate with Gate Repair
Proper maintenance is a must, but so is gate repair. Neglecting needed repairs can shorten the lifespan of your gate and cause a series of headaches you could otherwise avoid. The most common gate repairs are quite minor. A small investment in their repair can prevent big costs in the future and delay replacement.
Importance of Gate Repair
Even though gates have several moving parts, they are fairly simple mechanisms. That means most repairs are fairly simple. But all parts are interconnected! So, if you neglect one part, you can set off a domino effect that affects several parts.
Neglecting gate repair leads to more than just frustration and costs of a broken gate. A broken gate also exposes you to more risks. After all, your gate is an additional layer of security that protects your property, belongings, and family. Why put all those valuables at risk when you can make a relatively inexpensive gate repair?
Ignoring needed gate repair certainly won’t make the problem go away. In fact, putting off gate repair can aggravate the issue further. What could have been a quick and easy repair can turn into a costly fix or even replacement. And don’t forget about the increased chance of theft and vandalism.
Electric Gate Lifespan
A quality electric gate should reasonably last for 15 to 20 years. Though, of course, that lifespan fluctuates based on how well the gate is maintained. A poorly maintained gate could last as little as a few years if the elements are allowed to take their toll uninhibited. Overgrown plants, uncontrolled pests, and neglected repairs can knock years off a gate’s life.
A well-maintained gate, however, can easily exceed the average lifespan. If pests and plants are kept clear of mechanical components, then your gate will have a much better chance of lasting a long time. Just as important is keeping up on repairs.
