Fences always need gates or at least 95% of the time they will. For example here we have a custom-built privacy board on board wood gate.
How big should my privacy wood gate be.
The gate or gates dimension will always depend on what will you be doing in the near future in your fenced-in backyard. For example, you have to think about it, later on, you’re planning to build a swimming pool or build a shed, think about the heavy equipment the contractor will be bringing in, this is why you should think if a bobble gate is needed for your backyard.
at J&H fence in Mount Holly, we build our gates on different sizes depending on the customer’s needs, single gates usually start from 42 inches, 4’ wide, 5’ wide, and sometimes 6’ wide for privacy wood fences.
Gates over 5’ wide and double gates we do recommend using 6x6x8 pressure treated posts. Preferable use a metal frame for it. Let’s take into consideration the weight of the gates. In the picture above we used. A metal frame for this 10 footer gate if you pay close attention to the gate is a board on board privacy wood gate, which means the gate is very heavy. As hinges, we used J-bolt welded to the metal frame and did also installed a drop rod welded to the metal frame as well.
