Buying and Construction Process
Step 1: Material definition
In CGI we will help you to determine the most appropiate type of material to be used. This will depend in the type of use, the exposure to the elements and budget.
Step 2: Design
Either you have a design in mind or you want us to help you to get an unique one for you, in this step we will help you to get the design will serve better for purpose and style.
Step 3: Getting a Quote
This is our job. We will work hard to get you a quote as soon as possible so you can decide when to start your project.
Step 4: Getting a contract.
Once you approve your quote, all you have to do is to sign it. That is our contract.
Step 5: Getting your order done.
In CGI we want our customers to be sure that we will work hard to get your job done in time. As a reference, you should expect around 30 to 45 business days to have a driveway gate completed.
Step 6: Installation process (if applicable)
Once your piece(s) are completed, we will call you to set an exact time for you to make the proper arregements to have one of our crews come to your property to install it. No surprises, no hazzles.
Custom Made Design
You imagine it and we design it for you. It's as simple as that. Send us your custom ideas and we'll translate your needs into specifications.
At Creative Gates Inc., we are proud to offer fabrication for a variety of metals, our specialized skills, and equipment to cover all fabrication steps: cutting, bending and assembling. Our cutting capabilities cover sawing, shearing, chiseling and even plasma (torching). We cover the bending process via hammering (manual and powered). Assembling (joining of pieces) can be done via welding, binding with adhesives, riveting, or more bending in the form of a crimped seam.
AutoCAD is a CAD (Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting) software application for 2D and 3D design and drafting. We draft every project before fabrication. This allows us to verify with you that we know exactly what you want.
Let's face it, accidents happen. Here at Creative Gates Inc., we offer maintenance services which include repairs and keeping your piece in great shape.
The best way to prepare a piece of metal for painting is sand blasting. At Creative Gates Inc., we prepare every piece we paint using our sand blasting tools. Whether the piece is a fence, a gate, or a simple door jam, we prepare them by removing all contamination prior to coating (painting). Nothing beats the quality of the sand blasting preparation. Period.
Talking about GREEN processes. Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. We apply the coating electrostatically and then we cure it in our 640 cubic ft. oven at 400°C to allow it to flow and form a "skin".
The powder we use is a thermoplastic (thermoset polymer) which creates a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
