Just quick story to share, last month my wife and I were eating at Shoguns and I was complaining to her how hard it’s been trying to get someone down to the house for an estimate for a custom wrought iron gate. a girl who was sitting next to us overheard me and said that she can build metal gates and does some metal work, I exchanged numbers and she was at the house a few days later with a price. No disrespect but I was a lil unsure to use her because she was this petite thing but was confident, her name is Shawna, check out before and after.

Looks great. Word of caution, if you have large dogs, the upper part of that gate will be a "paw grabber" for our furry friends.

When I was searching for someone to do some iron work, a couple people told me Masonry and More sub the iron work out to Armor Fence? I am not sure if it is true or not but I figure it must be or they would not have said it right?

Not sure how you determined that, but we've done several jobs with Jeff and couldn't be happier.
His quality couldn't have been any better and the project was done right on time.

I'm still waiting for him to finish my wall. Works a few hrs one day comes back 2 weeks later over and over again. He's not working for me but my builder. Pain in the ass.

I had called a few companies in town about this gate, some I had to wait weeks just to have someone come out to look and give me an estimate, some didn’t even show up, because they don’t have time to do one gate when they have big contracts with new home builders. I’m not going to put them on the blast, but getting workers to do a good job is tough that’s why I go to this board To promote good workers and get recommendations.

This isn't a dig at all.
That gate is very nice and well done.
The design does have the same design flaw as almost all of the others.
The hinges and latch unfortunately won't last very long. They will come loose in the masonry pretty quick.
A better design would have been to add another square tube on each column to mount the gate on and latch the gate too.
Drill through the square tube and use much larger sleeve anchors to attach them to the masonry. They would also be blinded inside the tube too.
Then the gate would outlast the masonry.

excellent idea to put square tube on the columns for gate mounting

I make alot of gates myself and have learned that works best. Also keeps the clearance down to a minimum so the rabbits and most smaller critters won't get through. You can also weld a flat strap to each tube to make a near perfect seal on each side like a door jamb too.

Wow, this is really impressive! Maybe she knows someone who can do something like this in Texas? We have a large, six-meter old gate that needs updating. We have moved into a new house and are now trying to update the appearance. We have already found guys who can install it( if someone is interested in it: https://everlastgates.com/austin-texas-automatic-gate-repair-installation/), so now we need to make a new bitcoin for our iron gates. So far, all I have been able to find are very expensive solutions. I would like to see something in the style of how this woman made your gate. Maybe she knows someone who is doing this in Texas or is ready to make a design for us.
