How to Build & Install a Deck Gate

Learning how to build a deck gate can be simple and rewarding. Properly gated areas provide a much safer and more secure area for both kids and pets. And as is the case with many home improvement projects, you don’t need to be an expert contractor to do nearly everything yourself.

With a little preparation and a step-by-step guide, just about anyone can build their own DIY deck gate. And, in case you don’t want to build it yourself, you can purchase premade gates like the Trex Signature Railing gate.
