Durable Wood Gates For All Climates

Choosing a wood gate for your property requires prioritizing durability and longevity, crucial in climates such as Arizona, Florida, and Illinois. At Pacific Gate Works, we specialize in custom-sized, stylized wood gates made from kiln-dried clear-grade Western Red Cedar. Our gates enhance your home’s aesthetic appeal while enduring diverse environmental conditions across the United States.

 Built to endure: Pacific Gate Works' gates thrive in the harshest weather conditions, combining beauty with unmatched resilience


The Superiority of Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar stands out for its exceptional outdoor performance. Rich in natural tannins, this wood species naturally resists rot and decay caused by moisture, making it ideal for exterior applications. Kiln-drying further enhances its stability by reducing moisture content to an optimal level, preventing warping, twisting, and shrinkage that can compromise the functionality of outdoor gates over time.

 Embracing the elements: Western Red Cedar's natural durability shines in every outdoor setting.


Construction Method: The Foundation of Durability

Our commitment to quality begins with our construction method, honed over two decades of experience. Each gate is meticulously crafted using mortise and tenon joinery for the frame. This traditional method ensures robust structural integrity, allowing the gate to endure frequent use and seasonal changes without warping or sagging.

 For gates with tongue and groove panels, we employ a floating panel design within the outer frame. This innovative approach accommodates the natural expansion and contraction of wood due to fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels throughout the year. By allowing the wood to breathe, our gates maintain stability, ensuring reliable operation year after year—a crucial factor for functionality and peace of mind.

 Protected to perfection: Our wood gate stands apart with an optional durable, clear finish, ready to withstand the elements beautifully.


Protection: Preserving Beauty and Strength

While Western Red Cedar is known for its natural durability and resistance to moisture and insects, at Pacific Gate Works we offer an optional upgrade with our preferred outdoor finish, ProLuxe SRD. This clear, penetrating finish enhances the wood's beauty and provides crucial protection against water absorption and UV damage. Easy to apply and maintain, Proluxe SRD ensures your gate stays pristine and structurally sound, even in challenging climates.

 Crafted for stability: Our wood gates maintain dimensional integrity through every season, ensuring lasting beauty and reliability.


Enhancing Longevity: Optional Upgrades

For customers seeking additional peace of mind, Pacific Gate Works offers optional upgrades that further enhance the longevity of our gates. Opting for a protective copper cap prevents rainwater from seeping into the end grain at the top of the gate, significantly extending its lifespan. Moreover, upgrading to a thicker gate—such as our 2 1/8” walkway gate option—ensures even greater structural stability, minimizing the risk of dimensional changes over the years.

 Elegance meets functionality: Concealing utility meters with custom wood panels, enhancing luxury living at every detail.

Each gate is handcrafted by skilled artisans who take pride in delivering products that not only meet but exceed expectations. Our dedication to using the finest materials and proven construction techniques underscores our commitment to providing gates that stand the test of time.
