Driveway Gate Installation Recommendations

When and what should I protect the cedar with?

When: As soon as possible and preferably before installation outside in the elements. The cedar is a clear grade (no knots) kiln dried and pre-sanded. So before the UV rays start to cook the fiber is always the best time and you can get finish into every spot.

What: We recommend starting with a coat of Zinsser cover stain primer (white & gold can). Allow to dry. Then spray or brush on a name brand solid color stain in any color desired.

How do I protect the cedar in the ground?

Degradation of a wooden post is caused by fungal growth when soil comes in contact with the post. Even set in a concrete base fungi can degrade a post. Fungal growth requires oxygen and moisture to thrive. We offer a thick rubber self stick membrane that acts as a barrier between the damp soil and the post preventing rot.

See "Protective Post Wrap"

Lantern Posts - What does "wire ready" mean?

There is a hole (approximately 3/4" x 1") that runs down the center of the lantern post.

Lantern Posts - What size is the lantern receptacle post cap?

An industry standard 3" lantern receptacle post cap is provided with all New England Woodworks lantern posts and lantern post sleeves.

Lantern Posts - How is the lantern receptacle post cap attached to the top of the post?

The lantern receptacle post cap should be screwed on (not glued) in the event it needs to be removed.

Lantern Posts - What is the difference between 94" posts and 72" lantern post sleeves?

Our 94" Posts are designed to go directly into the ground.

Our 72" Lantern Post Sleeves are designed fit over your pre-existing foundation post.

Nominal Size - "Nominal size" used for lumber dimensions.

The approximate or roughcut dimension by which lumber is called and sold in trade, but which differs from the actual dimension. Example: a finished (dressed) 'two by four' piece is less than 2 inches thick and less than 4 inches wide. 2x4 is the "nominal size".

How do I purchase these beautiful products?

The most cost effective way to purchase is to order online.

How quickly do you ship orders?

How soon will I receive my order?
