Fence Gates for $700 in Toronto
This homeowner from Toronto had fence gates installed by The Handy MacGyvers. A fence gate essentially acts as a ‘front door’ for your backyard. Without a gate, your backyard is open for anyone to walk in and out of. Having a fence gate installed adds an extra sense of security to your home. Plus, if you have young children or pets running around, you won’t need to worry about them running onto the street.
This family chose to go with wood fence gates. Wood is a very durable material and it can also be stained or painted any colour. Natural wood also matches almost anything on its own so it’s up to you if you wish to stain or paint it. Wood is also resistant to rot and will weather naturally which makes it longstanding.

This family decided to add an accented piece that matches the gate’s handles. The simple design can help to add curb appeal to your home’s property. Fence gates can typically be seen from the road, so adding an extra flair to the gate can help to draw attention to your home’s overall aesthetic.
