7 Reasons to Install Driveway Gates
by Tamara Rein - January 6, 2021

When we talk of driveway gates, there are many types to consider. There are wooden gates, aluminum gates or wrought iron gates. You can go simple and solid with a wrought iron gate or tech-savvy with automatic driveway gates. 

So why install a driveway gate on your property? This article compiles the 7 important reasons for helping you make that decision.

Security

When it comes to the reasons for installing a driveway gate, security tops the list. What can be more important than protecting your house and home from outsiders? According to FBI Uniform Crime Reporting, there are an alarming 3000 reported burglaries every day in the US.

A sturdy front gate deters would-be intruders and adds that extra layer of security to the property. A strong wrought iron gate can have an imposing look and discourage trespassers and burglary. 

Research studies indicate such security measures make properties far less attractive for crimes and criminals.  Add to that automatic lock and access systems and you have an additional layer of security, controlled with a touch of a button in your hand.

Add Value to the Property

Installing a driveway gate adds to the attraction of the house. When we get that curb value, the value of the property goes up too. If you’re looking to sell your house, you might want to consider first raising the property value. 

The first thing a potential buyer would notice would be the curb appeal. To get that curb appeal, 

Convenience

You don’t need to keep a close watch on who or what enters your property. The gate ensures only welcome people enter, while unwelcome visitors are kept out, whether human or animal. It’s the simplest form of access control. Why be disturbed by anyone just walking up to your driveway when you can control it?

Beauty

A beautifully crafted gate, whether wrought iron driveway gate or stainless steel. It definitely adds personality to the property. With the many design ideas for driveway gates, there are an array of options to choose from. Metalworks can even be custom-designed. This works great when we want to create our own unique design, whether cool and modern or maybe go with a vintage and classic look. Anything really that goes with the theme of the house and compliments its overall appearance.

Keep Children and Pets Safe

We all want to make sure our kids and pets don’t keep wandering out of the safety of the house. Well, a gate does just that, allowing us to relax with the kids and pets playing safely in the yard. Keeping our house and family safe and secure at all times is always our priority, so the protection a gate provides comes with some relief.

Privacy

Without a gate, there really isn’t much privacy from the public. A driveway gate, however, apart from everything else allows you the privacy to relax in the house. It provides a barrier from the outside world.

Insurance

Insurance costs can be lowered if your house is more secure. Insurance companies know risks to your house are significantly lowered if you have a driveway gate in place. That would cause your insurance premiums to be lowered too.

There are several indispensable benefits of installing driveway gates. So, if you want to add security, durability, and that curb appeal to your property getting a driveway gate is first and foremost.
