Wooden gates required
Topic posted by Randal ... dated:17 April 2007
As a new user of this website, I am hopeful that one of you will be able to recommend a firm (or one man band) who can do a decent job of constructing some wooden gates for my driveway. I have seen a few good jobs locally, and might have to resort to knocking on strangers doors to ask who did their gates.

Another update: after some five and a half years in service, our gates needed a bit of attention this month. They had started to sag on their hinges, making it increasingly difficult to lock them. The Speakmans called round within two days of me calling them, fiddled with the adjustable hinges and put everything back to rights. It didn't take them long and they didn't charge much at all (a tenner).

Another vote for Dave Speakman, he made a set for me last year and they are still like new today. I have known Dave years anyway and he is the sort of person you could trust with your life.

Just by way of an update: Dave Speakman is still going strong and has built and fitted new wooden gates at several houses in our street. Ours went up about 18 months ago and we're very pleased with them. They are built with an overhead horizontal beam and heavy duty bolts and locks so that they stand up well to strong winds blowing through the gap between our house and next door - unlike the previous gates, which wobbled and flexed and bent their bolts and eventually blew away from their hinges.

Mr Speakman is based on Sandy Lane in Stretford, telephone 0161 864 2610 or 07957 792801.

I would recommend Tom Foley too - he did our fencing and he does driveways. Not too expensive and an excellent worker.
