The convenience of opening a gate with the push of a button makes your life easier. However, many homeowners rush into automatic gate installation, making costly mistakes that require repair.
Here are two common mistakes people make with their automated gate systems.
- Choosing the wrong motor – don’t go for just any motor as some aren’t durable, and others use plastic gears that wear out quickly. Instead, pick a motor based on the weight of your gate and the distance it has to travel, to open and close.
- Incorrect installation – hiring anyone for automated gate installation can cause problems such as unsealed control boxes and motors that aren’t secure.
