Residential driveway gates increase your home security and privacy, which is an important feature to many homeowners in the Archway service area. You may have already decided on the style of driveway gates you want, but there are more decisions to make than your curb appeal statement. Like anything else you buy today you’ll want to insist on good quality construction, and materials for long lasting beauty and service. The same is true of gate motors and access control systems, but first let’s take a look at the gate design options.
There are both single and double gates for driveway entrances. The weight of the gate will determine the gate operator needed to do the job reliably, as will the site itself. While you may envision something artistic in a contemporary driveway gate that parts at the center your property layout must allow this function. Driveway swing gates don’t work everywhere, which is why there are rolling driveway gates, folding driveway gates, and even overhead home driveway gates. The good news is that a single gate can look like it’s double, but function the way that suits your situation.
Modern driveway gates come in many styles and materials from ornate to simple. Wood driveway gates are generally clean in style, and are the right choice when you’re looking for privacy driveway gates. Frosted glass gates will also give you total privacy with a more minimalistic touch. If you just want to keep intruders out both steel and iron driveway gates are available in traditional and modern designs.
Steel gates will be powder-coated and lower maintenance that wrought iron or wood, as well as weighing less than solid materials on every piece of the gate’s structure. Wood naturally weighs less than iron, but a wide driveway entry gate for total privacy will be solid wood like a wall, and weigh more than one that doesn’t completely block out the view.
Naturally, the budget will be part of the decision-making process. Gate manufacturers are aware of that, and we have options that range from ready-made to semi-custom, and fully custom in a variety of materials and finishes.
