A new driveway gate says a lot about a house and the homeowner. It shows that you are willing to invest in your property and make your home safer and more secure. Choosing the right material for your new gate is an important decision. We carry several styles and materials, so let us take you through the materials we have to offer.
The most popular choice of materials for gates is ornamental metal. Metal has lasting power, it’s not as pricey as other materials and it’s a relatively low-maintenance product. Ornamental metal offers many options as far a looks are concerned. It can be painted any color of your choice and can even be painted to mimic woodgrain.
If you’re looking for a contemporary, sleek look – especially if you have a modern home – an iron driveway gate may be your best bet. Iron gives your property’s gate entrance a classy feel. Iron stands up to all types of weather as well.
Chain link gates can be a simple and inexpensive way to provide added security to your property. Although they are not the considered the best when it comes to potential impact or long lasting, especially when compared to metal or iron gate installation options.
For the traditionalist, wood is always a good option. Painted wood is usually better for the budget-conscious homeowner, but stained wood usually does cost more. A beautiful, natural wood gate can increase the curb appeal of your home. Wood, however, does require more maintenance.
