Stone gateposts have stood the test of time. Indeed many will last over a hundred years until they need replacing, either through natural erosion or man-made damage. It is quite often the case that one of a pair of gateposts will weather much faster than the other due to being closer to a wall or building or being in a wind trap. Harris Quarries have many years’ experience in matching and fitting gateposts; in many instances, once fitted, it is hard to tell the old from the new.
When measuring up for a stone gate it is the usual practice to add anything from 300 to 600mm to go below ground. This gives good stability, especially if you’re hanging a particularly heavy gate on the post. It is possible to repair a broken gatepost using epoxy resins and stainless steel dowels, but the post will never look quite as good as it once did and the joint is almost impossible to disguise. Harris Quarries offer a full fitting service or delivery to the home. For a small fee your new gatepost will be dropped into place by our state-of-the-art insertion method. Call us to find out more.
