An Authentic Salvaged European Gate

Los Angeles, CA Reclaimed Wood Garage Door & European Shutters

Long Beach, CA - Adding a salvaged architectural garden gate to your home can give it that unique touch that adds character and beauty to the curb appeal of your home. As part of a larger project for this European country style home we retrofitted several salvaged architectural gates that were modified and installed to fit in their new home. This particular gate is a reclaimed wood slatted design featuring vertical planking on the front and horizontal planking on the back. The back of the gate as seen in this photo shows the elemental construction of the antique gate with the nails bent over the slats for structural strength and durability. The years of exposure to the elements are immediately obvious by the aging of the wood and layers of rust formed around the nails and hardware. To complete the installation we sourced out an authentic French mortise and lever lock set with its original skeleton keys. The gate is fully functional and a salvaged architectural piece that added character to the home's curb appeal.
