On our wooden gates, Heartlands Metal Craft offer a 5-year workmanship warranty covering manufacturing defects. Please be warned, however, that wood is a natural product so there’s the possibility it can move, warp, crack or split as part of natural weathering process.
We believe the maturing of your wood adds to the beauty of the material; it shouldn’t be cause for concern unless it impacts the structural integrity of the gate, in which case our team can advise.
Maintaining Wooden Gates
Our wooden gates are typically a low-maintenance choice. Made from high-end materials, your wooden gate is designed for durability in its application.
However, if you choose to follow a maintenance schedule, we offer the following guidelines:
Painted Wood Gate
If you choose to repaint, repair or clean your painted gate, we can provide detailed maintenance guidance. The paint used on your gate is a high-quality product which cannot be purchased online or in a local store.
Untreated Wood Gate
Untreated wood will weather naturally to a silvery colour. The type of timber used will determine the requirements of the gate and how long it will take to weather; Iroko will take longer to weather than other types, for example.
Stained Wood Gate
Staining can preserve or change the colour of the timber and can last several years without needing to be re-stained. Wooden gate stain will weather naturally to a silvery grey if left untreated for a long period of time. We can provide maintenance guidance should you wish to re-stain the gate.
Oiled Wood Gate
Whilst an oil coating will not stop the natural weathering process of your wood, it will slow it by replenishing lost oils in the material. Our wooden gates are oiled with Deks Oil D1, a low maintenance solution which can be reapplied as needed; we can provide you with further guidance to re-coat your oiled gate. If left without retreatment, the oil will fade into the wood and turn a natural silvery colour.

"I researched gate companies for several months before finally going ahead with Heartlands Metal Craft, based on previous customer reviews. So glad I did, albeit, the install took a little longer than I had hoped. Nevertheless, it was reassuring to see they were busy, shows they are in demand.
The installers were super friendly, and polite and always cleaned up very neatly after themselves. The workmanship was 100% exactly how I hoped they would be. Family and all the neighbours love the gate. Several neighbours have stopped and complimented how great it looks and very in keeping with the village. Some photos attached of the before and after. I would highly recommend Heartlands Metal Craft Ltd."
These gates look fantastic and so pleased with the installation and the quality. The whole experience from ordering to installation has been so good. A company with the customer in mind . Would not hesitate to recommend,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for a looking great installation which has already been positively commented upon by a number of locals using the footpath by the gates.
I would also like to compliment you and your team on a great professional approach and workmanship during the installation. The quality and care that was taken in the running of the cables and the electrical connections and the awareness of the impact the work had on my parents was exemplary.
I would particularly like to thank your chap who completed the work (but I’m ashamed to say I’ve forgotten his name), who was brilliant in his approach and care taken and again delivered a super installation and very considerate to my parents.
As I say the gates look great and the dusted gold looks special when the sun catches it.
We ordered gates for a driveway last year but were let down badly by the driveway suppliers so we had gates but no drive. However Jason and his team at Heartlands were very supportive and were able to source a builder to erect pillars to hang the gates and are going to help further with recommendations for someone to complete the work. We have received lots of compliments on the gates from neighbours and people passing. They look great. Thank you Heartlands.
A*** Service! Highly Recommended
Excellent customer care, attention to detail and communication from start to finish!
Jason @ HMC was able to assess my requirements, giving an insightful explanation of different features with pros and cons which gave me confidence, something I did not feel when speaking to other gate companies who seemed to be out to make a quick buck. HMC made my decision an easy one.
Jason and the team arrived promptly. They were knowledgeable very efficient & clean with their work showing great care and diligence. Not to mention the detailed plans, and drawings to ensure I was completely satisfied before the job was even started. This gave me great confidence in their ability.
I had 2 sets of electric gates installed, new intercom, with railing and lighting on the perimeter. Top job.
I would definitely recommend HMC!
