The key, as we’re sure you are aware, is ensuring your gates are consistently maintained, and the process of maintaining your wooden gates is easy as long as you routinely carry out these checks.

Maintain your wooden gates by:

  • regularly wiping down your gates
  • clearing away debris that collects along the bottom of your gates
  • removing leaves and other debris that sticks to your wooden gates
  • annually restaining your wooden gates to protect them from water damage
  • being aware of the cleaning and maintenance requirements for the specific wood your gate is made from. The professionals that installed your wooden gates should offer you this information.

We recommend that you regularly inspect your wooden gates for:

  • any exposed wood
