Front yard and driveway gates can be made from a wide range of materials. Here we look at several of the most popular and common materials used for driveway gates and go over some of their key qualities. If you are currently considering having a new gate installed and wondering what type of material would serve you best, it can be very helpful to have a good understanding of your options.
Wrought Iron Gate Installation
This type of gate is robust and possesses a charming aesthetic. Wrought iron lasts a very long time as it is anti-corrosive. With just a little bit of care, gates made from this type of metal can keep their condition for centuries. It is for this reason quality wrought iron gates are typically pricier than other options. Their value and quality makes them highly sought after.
Steel and Aluminum Gates
Steel and aluminum are mass produced, so they are relatively cheap compared to rarer materials like wrought iron. Both steel and aluminum can be rolled thin, providing a light yet robust sheet of affordable metal. This makes them a good choice if you think you might consider installing gate openers to have your gate automated. Their light weight will make it easier to find appropriate opener models that are strong enough to maneuver them efficiently.
Installing Wooden Gates
Wooden driveway gates are popular for their warm aesthetic and natural feel. When you install a wooden gate you have to accept that because it is natural, it will be more susceptible to rotting and decay. The larger the gate the stronger and more heavy it will be. If you want it to be automatic, you will have to consider its dimensions and overall weight carefully.
