Wooden Gates Transform an Outdoor Area

Outlining your home or business with a well-constructed fence and wooden gate can deliver safety while also transform the aesthetics of your property. Access gates provide the final touch to any fence system. Your access gate can have a sliding or swing feature, depending on your unique desires. Wooden gates have continued to grow in popularity over the years for their ability to enhance the image of a home, while also offering a higher level of safety and privacy.

At Titan Fence & Supply company, we deliver high quality and durable fences and gates made from a wide variety of materials designed to look great and deliver lasting results. We have proudly served the North Dallas region for over 15 years.

Because access gates are the most visible and most handled aspect of your fence system, you want to make sure you have something that is dependable. Below are five great benefits to wooden gates.

Aesthetically Appealing

Wooden gates continue to remain a top choice among consumers for their classic and timeless appearance. Because of the variety of woods and stains available, when designing your wooden gate, you can make it unique to your own desires. As an added bonus, if you decide to change the color palette of your outdoor area, you can repaint the wooden gate to blend beautifully and seamlessly. Whether you desire a traditional five-bar gate for countryside charm or a modern timber security gate to secure the perimeter of your home or business, no two wooden gates are the same. Your wooden gate will be custom-made for your property.

Easy to Operate

As gate technologies have continued to advance, access gate operations and functions have improved as well. Not only can you design your access gate to blend with the aesthetics of your property, but you can make it easy to operate for you, your employees, or family members. We understand your time is important, so we want to ensure your wooden gate is designed for ease and functionality. Some of the gate opening features include:

  • Swing or slide entry
  • Keypad entry
  • Remote control entry
  • Telephone entry
  • Card entry
  • Solar or electric powered

Provides Security and Privacy

While rod iron or metal fences may seem to offer more safety, wooden gates can offer the same great security. When selecting the type of wood for your access gate, it’s important to choose hardwood over softwood so the gate is both durable and a strong deterrent. We can also customize your gate with a secure locking and reinforcement system, in addition to the right height and width, helping to keep entries or important merchandise well hidden. With a wooden gate in place, you will enjoy complete privacy.

Great Value

Timber is more affordable than most other materials used for access gates, making it a cost-effective solution. When selecting the wood for your access gate, it’s imperative that you choose one based on quality and longevity. If a cheaper wood is chosen, it could result in deterioration or discoloration. At Titan Fence & Supply company, we work with reliable suppliers to ensure our clients receive superior, long-lasting results at affordable pricing.

Iron Gates Offer Safety and Aesthetics

iron gatePicture a heritage estate, a grand old country home with cultivated landscaping and a private gardener to keep the hedges neat. Pan out to the extended driveway that leads to the main road. Surrounding the perimeter of the property, what kind of fencing and gate do you see? Perhaps a brick wall, but definitely an ornamental iron gate, of course. Wood or chain link simply does not convey the classic elegance of iron.

Why has iron been the standard for securing valuable properties from trespassers for so long? Simple: strength and durability. Iron gates keep out humans, deer, dogs, or any other creatures that may try to pass. You’d need a blowtorch to cut through iron. Have you ever tried to scale an iron gate? The vertical bars give no footing, so all but the deftest of parkour enthusiasts will fail. Whether it’s door-knocking solicitors, thieves, or a pack of hungry zombies—iron gates keep unwanted visitors from bothering your home. They are also the most durable fence and gate material, and, when well cared for, can last for decades.

You Design the Details

One of the greatest things about ornamental iron gates is how they can be customized to your aesthetic tastes. Pointed finials, square bars, a decorative crest, or a name plate—all these details can be part of the gate you choose for your property. Iron fences are usually horizontally level, but a swinging driveway gate can add an elegant sloping curve to the appearance of your gate.

If the gate is for a business, we can suggest features that complement the building, grounds, and neighborhood. For ideas, have a look at our ornamental iron gallery to see examples of the gates we have installed for our customers in the past.Iron Gate - Titan Fence and Supply Company - Dallas Texas

Easy, Secure Gates

Ornamental iron fences can be erected around properties, businesses, pools, recreation facilities, and more. Secure features let you decide whether your vehicle or pedestrian gate requires a key, card, code, of phone entry. At Titan Fence, we offer all these features and more, so you get the gate you want. We can even install solar-powered gate entry systems, to save you money on energy costs. (Many clients for multi-residential properties love that option, since the gates get so much daily use.)

Low Maintenance Iron Offers Years of Protection

With a high quality powder coating and proper care and maintenance, your iron gate can last for many years. When we install the gate, we make sure you get a powder coating that is appropriate for the North Texas climate, which will resist the elements and rusting. Nevertheless, there are some steps you can take to ensure your gate stays functioning well and looking great:

  1. Clean the gate with water and a mild detergent every six months to maintain the paint job.
  2. Grease the hinges every year or when you hear them starting to squeak.
  3. Check the gate for rust twice a year.
  4. Remove any small patches rust with a fine wire brush, wash with mild detergent and allow to dry before applying a rust converter.

A Beautiful Driveway Gate

Ornamental Iron Gate - Titan Fence and Supply Company - Little Elm TexasIs your driveway a weak spot both aesthetically and in terms of security?

Have you ever wished you could better control strangers’ access to your property?

Do you have fencing surrounding your property everywhere except the driveway and front entrance?

If so, you should consider getting a beautiful driveway gate from Titan Fence. Driveways gates are the perfect finish to your property fencing projects, and come in a number of styles and access modes. Our service area covers the Frisco, Dallas, and Plano Texas area, and we have many sturdy and stylish options to choose from.

A Sturdy Driveway Gate to Match Your Property

Most people usually think of tall, black wrought iron fences when they think of security gates, but the truth is that we can make a driveway gate from any of the commonly used fencing materials. Wood, ornamental iron, and even vinyl fencing can be used. We specialize in creating beautiful gates that fit in with your property’s design aesthetic, and can even match a gate perfectly to pre-existing borders. Ornamental iron is a beautiful choice when a stone wall is already surrounding your property, and we have many elegant and styles and flourishes to choose from.Iron Gate - Titan Fence and Supply Company - Dallas Texas

All our gates can be made as either swing or slide gates, depending on your preferences and spatial requirements. Swing gates open into the driveway, while slide gates move horizontally, and make use of the fencing to one side of the gate. Typically, slide gates are best when there is ample fencing to one side of the gate but limited space in the driveway. They allow you to reserve more space for parking in your driveway, without sacrificing a secure entry point.

Driveway Gates Control Access to Your Home and Front Door

At Titan Fence, we have many different types of gate systems to choose from. Whether you want a simple manual gate for the back entrance to your property, or a top-of-the-line security system, we have your solution!

Change the Way You Use Your Space

Your home is your domain, and a driveway gate is an excellent way to control the traffic of visitors.  It can also change the way you use your driveway. If your children and pets make good use of a backyard surrounded by a privacy fence, you may find that they start enjoying the front of the property, as well, once it is contained behind a driveway gate. With a secure gate, children and pets can enjoy the added space with no fears that they may wander into the road and put themselves at risk.

Enhance Security and Privacy

Many of our clients are interested in access gates to ensure their families are protected and they are not bothered by solicitors or unwanted guests. They are also an excellent way to protect your property and vehicles, especially if you worry about vandals and thieves. Driveway gates give you added peace of mind and enhance the value of your property, all around.

A Privacy Fence for Your Backyard

small garden and privacy fenceYour home is your domain; you want all your spaces to be secure and protected from both outsiders and unwanted attention.

At Titan Fence, we specialize in backyard privacy fences to give your family a safe space to live and play. Our sturdy, well-built fences give you peace of mind that your family and pets can play, swim, cook-out, and enjoy your outdoor spaces without having to worry about breaches in your perimeter. We also specialize in building privacy fences that enhance your property values and complement the aesthetics of your home.

Are you looking for a Frisco fence company to handle your next fencing project? Titan Fence has years of experience building strong, long-lasting fences in the North Texas area. As a family-owned business, we pride ourselves on using the best materials and building methods, so we can protect your family as if it was our own.

The most common building material for a privacy fence is wooden boards. At Titan, we use Western Red Cedar or Spruce Pine, depending on your needs and budget. Cedar contains natural oils that help protect it from insects and erosion, while more affordable spruce can be treated with oil-based stains and sealants. Both of these materials are ideal for side-by-side or board-on-board fences, and can be made in a traditional vertical alignment or with a more modern horizontal construction.

Customize Your Fence – We Can Keep Up!

At Titan Fence, there are no cookie-cutter solutions for backyard fencing. We love giving our clients a fence they will love, so we encourage you to look at customization options. There are many features we have provided in the past: dog-eared picketing, ornamental iron accents, view-through windows, dog windows, and customized gates. Tell us what you are looking for and we’ll find a solution.

View our wooden fences gallery to see some examples of the unique fences we can create to reflect the personality of your property and complement its aesthetic value. We will work within your neighborhood association guidelines to give you a privacy fence that adds value to your home, as well as your enjoyment of your backyard recreational space.

Backyard Driveways?

If you have backyard parking space, we can provide an efficient security gate that’s within your budget. We routinely build access gates for residential communities, and can provide swinging or sliding gates to maximize your space. We routinely install secure access gates with card, code, or other entry systems.

We Know How to Make Privacy Fences Last

We have built thousands of fences in the North Texas area and know how to protect your wooden privacy fence from the insects and elements that can do it harm. Our unique extremes of heat and humidity can take a toll on wooden boards, and we will help you select the treatment options to make your fence last. Proper treatment and maintenance can extend cedar fence life to multiple decades, and spruce pine can last 8-10 years. We also offer a lifetime guarantee on workmanship, so you know you are getting a product that is structurally sound.

Contact Us for a Consultation and Quote

If you know what you are looking for in a privacy fence, use our online estimate tool for a ballpark figure for your fence. Better yet, call us at 940-365-9999 and a representative will visit your home and assess your property and preferences. We will give you a no-risk quote that is good for 30 days.

Wrought Iron Gates for Residential Communities & Homes

iron gatesStrong, Beautiful, and Durable – Ornamental Iron Gates

Are you in the market for a new residential fence or gate? Wooden fences are the standard for backyard privacy fences, but they lack the appeal and strength of elegant ornamental iron. If you are looking for a way to secure your residential property that doesn’t interfere with the natural beauty of the landscape, ornamental wrought iron gates may best meet your needs.

Are you looking for a Plano fence company to help you with your next fencing project? As a family owned and operated business, Titan Fence takes pride in the exemplary quality of our work. We treat every job as if it were our own home or community, and ensure you get the best materials and craftmanship for your property.

Control Access with Elegance

Ornamental iron gates and fences offer homes and residential communities a way to control access and driveways with elegance. Durable powder-coated iron is strong enough to maintain a secure perimeter, but conveys a classic manor-style aesthetic that adds sophistication to your property.

Gates made from iron tend to last decades longer than wooden fences and can secure a home or community without hiding or interfering with the beauty of your buildings and landscaping.

Options for Wrought Iron Gates

There are a number of features to think about of you are thinking of having wrought iron gates built. Will they be needed at multiple entry points, or just one central entry point? Are they needed solely for car access, or will a pedestrian gate also be needed? What height is suitable for your needs? Whatever your goals, Titan Fence has the experience and knowledge to get the job done.

Iron Gate Design – If security from trespassers is the primary concern, fence and gate height and post-width may be different than if you are hoping to keep animals inside or outside your fence. We also offer a number or ornamental iron accents and post-tops, to ensure your fence and gate convey the image that best complements the property.

Gate Opening Mechanism – For private residences, gates can be constructed with a sliding or swinging entrance, to best meet your space and design goals. Sliding gates tend to work better when space is limited, as they can retract into existing fencing without impeding traffic flow or parking space.

Energy Saving Features – Our gates can be constructed to run on either electricity or solar power. If you are concerned with energy and money-saving features, a solar powered gate is an excellent way to add to your “green” factor.

Secure Entry – Whether a one-family or multi-family residence, we can provide access gates with keypad, telephone, remote control, and/or card entry.

Your Local Experts

At Titan Fence, we’ve built thousands of fences and gates in the North Texas area. We know how best to select and prepare materials for the unique elements of our local weather and seasons.

With iron, the high humidity and heat can create an environment that contributes to rust, so we make sure our iron fences and gates are treated with the highest-quality powder coating. We use a strong, protective layer to inhibit scratches and rusting; this finish enhances the appearance of the iron fence and offers a smooth surface for painting.

If you are searching for Plano fence company, Titan Fence is here for you! Call us to learn more and request a free estimate for your next wrought iron fence or gate project.

The invention of this simple phenomenon has become a one of the most common places for Americans to celebrate on the Fourth of July. All over our nation homeowner owners invest large sums of money into what has become a retreat for recreation, entertainment, dining, and relaxation. What used to be just a simple fence, barbeque grill and patio has turned into a small oasis for many Americans. Here are some interesting facts regarding our country and the Fourth of July weekend.

Ranch Style Fencing

Many of our clients still have a need for ranch style fencing.  Believe it or not there are still quite a few functioning ranches in and around DFW.  Texas and the term “Ranch” go hand in hand.  So what is the real definition of a ranch?  Patrick Murfee, the administrator of the Ranching Heritage Association in Lubbock, actually laughed out loud when we asked for one when being interviewed by Texas Monthly Magazine.  After talking to him and other experts in the field, they settled on four criteria that a Texas ranch must meet.

  1. On the land in question, livestock—cattle, goats, horses, and the like—must be raised for profit.
  1. The land can be noncontiguous but must be managed as one ranch—an important point, since many ranches, including the King Ranch, are made up of several chunks of land, some of which are hundreds of miles apart but are overseen by the same person or group.
  1. The land must be in Texas. (Nearly 50 percent of the ranch owners on our list have acreage in other states or countries.)
  1. The land must be primarily owner-operated; that is, owned and run by the same people, or at least members of the same family. Leased land doesn’t count. That’s why the venerable Kenedy Ranches aren’t on the list.

IN TEXAS IN 1998 THE RECIPE FOR FAME AND FORTUNE CALLS FOR NERDS, not herds. But you couldn’t get the owners of the state’s twenty largest ranches to trade their hundreds of thousands of acres—not even for millions of dollars in Dell Computer stock.

Protecting your fence from the elements!

stain-fenceThe amount of rain DFW has received this year is a reminder that protecting a fence is a critical to extending its life expectancy. As a rule of thumb you should stain a fence every 5 to 7 years depending on the type of wood.

It’s impossible to completely prevent the natural weathering that occurs to a wood fence over the years, but you can slow the process by protecting the wood regularly from the elements. The stain you use to on the wood must cover every part of the wood exposed to moisture. It’s also important to use galvanized or stainless steel hardware in the wood because these metals won’t rust and they resist warping.

We always recommend a Cedar fence.  Cedar has natural oils and acids in the wood that make it undesirable to most insects. This allows the wood to be installed in its unfinished form and last for many years. Cedar also warps less than Whitewood or Pine fences.

Fences provide security for our homes

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX D530

Nothing provides security for a home like a fence.  A well-built quality fence is a visual and physical deterrent for criminals looking to break into our homes.  A fence will force a criminal to scale it – thereby alerting anyone else observing this act suspiciously.

Fences will provide a “psychological barrier” to some would-be criminals – meaning that the act of climbing over a fence will discourage some folks from wandering into a yard.  However, in general, fences will deter some and slow down others; they will not stop a determined criminal.  Making sure your fence is secure and gates are locked at night or when leaving town will help protect all of your property and loved ones.  See more tips on how to protect your home.
