Custom Gate Design and Pricing


Our Process

Because our custom gates are one-of-a-kind projects, we don’t have set prices.  The cost depends on what you want, and every project is a little different.  Read about how we do our estimates in this article, “How Much Does a Driveway Gate Cost.”

We’ll ask you to sign our design agreement based on your target budget.  The cost of will be between $1,000 – $3,000 depending on the scope of your project.  The fee will be applied towards the project if you hire us to build the project.  You will receive a concept drawing and a formal estimate with all the

Price Categories

3. Make A Budget

When you are planning the budget for your new gate, consider the cost of automating it if you don’t want to get out of your car in the heat, cold, rain or other weather to open your gate.  To help with the rough estimation of this, review our automatic gate openers and other accessories.

Then, if you want to have a gate that conveys your personal style, budget for the design and fabrication. We build custom gates for a wide range of budgets. To help you, review our three categories … Essential, Signature and Legacy Gates.

NOTE: Other factors to consider for your budget is the gate size and if you want single vs double gates. Check out our article about that.
