|From the graceful elegance of a Beverly Hills Mansion to the charm of a rustic countryside cottage, Gate Crafters premium red cedar gates tasteful richness of design and wide variety of products has the solution to your gate design needs. Our primary ingredient has always been kiln-dried fine textured Western Red Cedar because of the fantastic strength to weight ratio, ease of machining to fine tolerances and its paint holding abilities. Cedar is a great choice for outdoor use because of its versatility. It can be stained, painted, or used “as delivered” in its raw nature for a rustic look. After some weathering cedar turns a light grey color. You can also preserve the natural color by applying a UV wood sealer regularly. One of the unique features of our gate is the welded eleven gauge steel frame which is completely concealed inside the cedar providing distinctive quality and design. The internal steel frame joints are all welded to ensure frame strength. As for the outside of the gate all angled joints are screwed, glued, then filled with wood filler. Bungs are used to fill all straight drilled holes then angled and straight holes are sanded to ensure a smooth seamless finish.
