Many homeowners/businesses have automatic gates installed as a means of increasing the security, privacy, and visual appeal of their properties. In addition to installing electric gate for residences, we also install everything that you will need to operate your gate.


Our highly-skilled technicians have substantial experience diagnosing problems and successfully servicing gate operators. Save yourself a potential headache and let us handle all of the necessary maintenance and repair.

Here are some common indications that your electric gate opener may be in need of repair:

  • Automatic Gate opens and/or closes slower than it should.
  • Automatic Gate is delayed in its movements.
  • Automatic Gate does not open or close at all.
  • Automatic Gate doesn’t open to or stop where it should.
  • Automatic Gate goes in the wrong direction /opens the wrong way.
  • Automatic Gate opens or closes when it shouldn’t.
  • Automatic Gate only works if someone is standing in front of it.
  • Automatic Gate locks are jamming.
  • Automatic Gate is making beeping noises.


Solar powered gate openers have quickly become a very popular alternative to traditional electric models. We’ve installed these particular units, which come in a variety of styles, at both residential and commercial sites.

Our automatic gate operator installers will be able to ascertain the size of solar panel and batteries needed to successfully operate your gate.

Please note that solar panels and batteries for driveway gate operators should be sized according to the locations that the operators are being installed at. Automatic Gate openers set up in areas that receive a lot of sunshine will generally require smaller solar panels.

By contrast, solar security automatic gate openers installed in areas with prolonged overcast periods will need larger panels and increased battery storage capacity.


While it can seem as though there is a lot to figure out, please don’t worry. Using the most up-to-date information and specifications directly from the manufacturers, we can clearly determine the correct size and type of motor necessary to operate your electronic gate.

Our main goal is to provide you with a stress-free installation experience, and as such we are committed to helping you easily navigate through all of the details.
