i would pick a lesser star but i cant.
i paid approx. $4000 to have a 10 foot aluminum fence and 10 foot aluminum gate installed less than 2 1/2 yrs ago. i may open the gate on average 1-2 times per month.
the mother board for the gate motor burned up in the first year. Had to be replaced. 2 yrs. and 2 months the motor arm that opens the gate fried. had to pay to have that replaced because the 1 yr warranty is over. now with new motor, the mother board has fried again. John agrees that the mother board replaced in yr 1 should last longer than a yr. uuuuugh!! guess what??? it did, just over a yr. so now it is not warrantied.
so i guess the mother boards last about a yr. before they quit working and the motors last about 2 yrs.
i have spoken with John and unless i pay him $$ he wont send anyone to look at the 2nd fried mother board.
So, i paid $4000 in first part of 2009 for fence and gate, many headaches later......i still have a broken gate.
