Making custom gates is what we do, not only tailoring the length so the gate fits well, but also offering custom gate styles. Gate manufacturers put out the same styles quickly, cheaply and in bulk. Their aim is to make quick money. Quality is no longer important. Redundancy is the game, forcing people like you to replace your gates often. In a world where waste is at record highs, Farmweld is bucking this trend.
When selling your home, first impressions are pivotal in whether a prospective buyer will turn up at your open inspection, so it’s important to get their attention. You don’t get a second chance with first impressions. For this reason alone, a welcoming front entrance with a beautiful, high quality wrought iron gate can make a huge difference in how buyers view the overall quality of the property. The initial outlay in bettering the street appeal of your home, can add thousands to the asking price of your home as we all having buyers line up at your open inspection, wondering what other quality features the house has to offer.
Till recently, the Daylesford gate has only been available as a custom designed farm gate. Due to it’s popularity, we have decided to include it as a standard design under the bar gates collection, in the heritage style country gates range. Modeled on the entrance gate to the historic ‘Wombat Park Estate’, in Daylesford, Victoria the gate is:
It was time to replace a old ‘bodgy’ fitting gate with something that would complement and grace the entrance to this lovely country property. Alternative access to an adjoining paddock was also needed, so a smaller, matching gate was the answer. Clients are quite often worried that gates won’t fit, especially when ordering from interstate. However so long as we know the distance between your posts, ie the gap, your gate will be made to fit perfectly. The customers were rapt with the outcome and this is what they had to say…
Quite often we’re asked if we can replicate an old heritage gate that someone’s seen and fallen in love with. The usual scenario is that you’ve got an older property which has lost the original gates but you haven’t been able to buy an old gate from anywhere. You really need something ‘old’ to suit. The one gate we’ve been asked about the most is the one shown in the Vic Tourism ad for Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. This gate graces the driveway entrance to the historic Wombat Park Homestead with it’s magnificent gardens.
Our gates are absolutely gorgeous – thank you! They’ve turned out exactly as we had imagined them (if not better) and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Thanks again for all your help in developing the design, and for the outstanding workmanship of the end product – we’ll be referring people your way without hesitation.
We are delighted with the gates, we love the design and my husband loves the robust construction. I can’t tell you how many people have asked about it and we happily refer them back to you!
Farmweld understood exactly what we wanted and came up with this design that needed no alteration. The gate and panels are really well made and look fantastic at the start of our drive. We have received many positive comments from friends and neighbours. We recommend Farmweld to anyone who wants to have gates or panels made for a special area around their home or farm.
A big thank you for the wonderful Estate gates – the big gate has made such a difference to the front of the property (as you can see from the picture) and has attracted several admiring comments, and the three smaller gates go perfectly with the Australian Colonial style of the house. It was easy to fix the rabbit mesh using the additional bars you provided, and this works really well, providing
We wanted to go locally. We wanted someone who could “translate” and meld both my and my wife’s ideas together and come up with a gate and fence we both liked. We also wanted a gate and fence that would last and fit in with our older style home.
Farmweld did all that in a very exemplary way . Based on our ideas Trish/Andrew provided us with
