Asked by gateidea May 31, 2020

Nope. Zero option offered by the manufacturer. You can surface mount your entire fence, but the gate has to be inserted into the ground. Makes zero sense and makes the gate unsuitable for many situations as a result. Customer service was no help.

Asked by Harvey May 12, 2020

Look at p. 7 of the instruction manual for SURFACE MOUNT INSTRUCTIONS. You can cut extra piece to use as surface mount. You need to buy 3/8 in. x 4 in. anchor bolts or screws to anchor to cement.

Asked by Harvey May 11, 2020

Hello, I have the same question. Were you able to use the E-Z post base for the gate posts? What size did you get?

Can we use pur own wood boards , tongue in groove to match our present fence?

Asked by Teresa August 12, 2019

I doubt it. I found the price per square foot to be too high. I went with a contractor built custom zero clear cedar 8 foot fence with Olympia Kona stain that HD no longer carries. Zero has no defects, no knot holes. Like the Euro style. Euro is probably better suited for apartment dwellers. Here is the deal Home Depot will take it back even if you tried to install it for full refund. And if u buy stuff on their credit card you get almost a year to return stuff.

Asked by BobRoberts June 9, 2019

Why would you want to do that? Cover it with a vinyl post sleeve the post it’s self looks great in black and I might add pretty costly to be used as an interior in a vinyl post just my opinion

Gate system makes no sense
Company offers a surface mount option on every single part of their fence EXCEPT the gate. There is no option for any other kind of mount other than this post sunk in 2+ feet of concrete. If you're trying to go between buildings or some other place where there is decking or a concrete walkway, you cannot use this gate unless you modify the mounting somehow, which reps said would void the warranty. I researched it carefully and saw there was a surface mount option, purchased all necessary hardware, waited three weeks to get it, then learned it would be unsuitable for my needs unless I either broke through a concrete walkway or figured out some other way to hang the gate. Company does not disclose this anywhere. Makes zero sense. Rep was rude, too. Won't be buying this product line again.

The gate is very attractive and easy to assemble. However, the screws are poor quality, which made self tapping difficult. This resulted in several dill bits breaking off during the pre drilling process. The hinge had to be moved, so hanging the gate took a long time and was stressful.
