- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When a customers calls, we have a conversation to decide on the total picture of that customers needs. I log all requirements for the job, gates, sizes, columns, landscaping, etc. I ask to be sent a picture of the entrance where the custom gate is to be installed, via email and the I go to work with the design. Utilizing a photoshop/graphic design software I place the entire design onto the supplied photo so the customer can see exactly what the finished project will look like. I send the customer a review of the design to make sure we are on the right page, and then I send a full quote for the finished project.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My design back ground started at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, where I graduated with honors. I then spent over 30 years in graphic, architectural, and sign design fields, giving me a unique perspective on working with all kinds of clients from all over the world.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common types of jobs are Custom Driveway Gates. Most of my clients require a gate that is not of a "Standard" size, so a custom sized and designed gate to fit their entry is required. I have also been doing a lot of Gate Automation, weather it's adding gate operators to an existing gate, repairing a gate operator or installing an entire gate and gate operator system. We have been installing gate systems for over 10 years and always use top of the line equipment with quality and longevity in mind!
