  1. Hi everyone, Pete here, just a quick update regarding the virus. Leah and myself, all things considered are quite lucky as we work by ourselves. So we should be able to continue with our work reasonably well.
    Most of the time Leah and myself are in the workshop by ourselves. The odd delivery we get can be left at the door so we don't need to have contact with callers.
    Fitting items and working on site will be fine as long as we keep our distance from any customers while at their houses fitting.
    We can still call at properties to measure and quote for any gates, railings, handrails etc. We think it's sensible not to shake hands and just keep a bit of distance between ourselves and anyone who we have called to see.
    We will be acting on any official advice, but we see no reason why York Gates can not continue to trade, unless one of us actually catches the virus, then I imagine we will be laid up in bed for a good few days while it clears up.
    So unless you hear different, presume we are trading as normal, bearing in mind the above points.
    Thanks for your support.
    Pete and Leah.

  2. York Gates offer many designs for gates and railings, many of which are tried and tested and have been around for years. Quite often we are asked to match existing railings, or work from old photo's of properties to match items that were present before they were removed to help the war effort.

    What we are finding now is that contemporary and steel frames with wood infills are trending. So with that in mind we are happy to quote for any design you have in mind. Either draw us a sketch, a detailled drawing, a photo or a verbal description and we can provide a written quote.

    We normally fit all the items we fabricate, however you are welcome to fit any items we supply yourself. You can either collect from our workshop or we can deliver.

    We normally work locally around the York area, however we are happy to consider work from other areas, just please consider we may need to cover travelling time within our quote.
