Driveway Gate Maintenance
Automatic Driveway Gate Maintenance
In Stephen R. Covey’s timeless work, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, he talks about something called P/PC balance. This refers to product and production capability. A golden goose is only good if it’s healthy enough to produce golden eggs. Accordingly, you must maintain the goose’s health to continue reaping the rewards of the golden egg. Proper automatic driveway gate maintenance is the same way. Therefore, if you neglect maintenance, you will quickly stop benefiting from the convenience and security of your automatic gate. Proper gate maintenance is essential when keeping your home up-to-date and in order. When your gate isn’t operating properly, life can be slowed down. We can take care of your gate regularly without any hassle.

Here are the top 3 things you can do to keep your electric gate in good working condition:
1. Electrical Components
Maintaining the electrical components, such as the automatic driveway gate opener and telephone entry system are crucial. So, a simple visual inspection of electrical components will mitigate a large portion of failures. Because the circuit board that controls the automatic driveway gate sits outside and is exposed to the elements, you will need to keep an eye out for several things. Corrosion, insect legs and wings, wasp nests, and spider webs can all contribute to electrical components failing.
2. Keep Everything Well Lubricated
Depending on the automatic driveway gate system you have, you may have to maintain certain parts to keep them functional. The high-end automatic gates tend to all their moving parts sealed, so this shouldn’t be an issue. However, if your components aren’t sealed, you’ll need to grease wheels, hinges, chains etc. to ensure everything continues to move smoothly.
Automatic driveway gate maintenance comes down to knowing what type of equipment you have and following the manufacturer’s recommendations. Because of this, we highly recommend using a professional to service and maintain your automatic driveway gate on a regular basis to keep it functioning properly.
