Order Waiting Times
Because all gates are made individually to your requirements, and I am a sole trader it does mean a waiting time during peak periods. During April to October it can be anything up to 8 weeks and at other times approximately 3 to 5 weeks.
All enquiries are dealt with by myself, and as I may not be able to deal with your query immediately I will return any calls as soon as possible.
Thank you for considering AJS Timber Gates. Timber gates enhance the property and add to the security. The main driveway gates are constructed from sustainable Swedish Redwood grown in the North of Sweden. The frame thickness is 70mm (2¾ inches) finished size which makes the gates very strong and gives them a sturdy, secure appearance (except legged and braced - details on request). The tongue and groove boards are 20mm (¾ inch) thick and come vacuum pressure treated. Joints on the framed gates are mortice and tennon construction and are glued with Cascomite glue.
You can visit the gate workshop to see products being made at any time, however please ring first to make sure I am not out on site fitting.
Timber is a green and natural product and will be prone to splitting, expansion, shrinkage and warping. I cannot guarantee against this happening. To reduce, NOT PREVENT this natural occurrence especially on kiln dried softwoods and tanlised timber it is essential that the product is fully sealed using an approved sealant including the bottom edges and all end grain.
Products come with a light base stain but then require 3 further coats of woodstain. Timber gate posts are tanalised for underground protection and will split when dry weather persists. This does not effect the strength and to me, looks authentic. Steel posts are an alternative option.
All black coated steel hardware will be prone to rust if it gets chipped. Galvanized is an alternative to this. If hardware is damaged in winds etc., I cannot accept responsibility for broken or damaged parts. Past experience shows that many gates settle within the first couple of months after installation. If this happens I will adjust them free of charge at the earliest opportunity.
All gates move in different ways at different times of the year due to weather conditions. They will require adjustments during their life span. If called out in this instance I would have to charge.
We recommend the following stains on installation:- 1 coat of Saddolin Classic followed by 2 coats of Saddolin Extra and then maintained annually.
