What Type of Gate to Choose

11/17/2013 Back To Blog

If you are a homeowner in El Cajon, you know that many of your neighbors have gates around their properties. Having one may add to the value of your home or just increase your prestige within the neighborhood. For whatever reason, you would like to add one to your property. What type should you choose? Here’s a look at some of the options.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron gates add an element of luxury or prestige to your property. They are synonymous with class and a certain style factor whether used on a driveway, entranceway, or garden. They are heavy and you will have to decide on whether you want them to slide or swing open. Either new gate installation may take up to a week to complete.

Wood

Wooden versions offer a unique look to a property as well and, depending on the type of wood, can be less expensive. Redwood is very strong and sturdy and seems to be the most durable of all wood types. These gates can have swinging doors or can use sliding gate rollers to slide open.

Steel

Steel gates will come in an array of styles and designs. You can achieve that same sort of classy look with the steel version as you can with wrought iron. Steel is very durable and can be made to swing or slide open.

Swinging

Not only will you have to choose the material that your gate is made of, you will need to choose how the gate will open. The swinging style is popular but does have some drawbacks. When opening and closing this type, there are dead spots that may affect safety, meaning you, a family member, a pet, or a vehicle could be hit by a swinging door.

Sliding

Sliding versions are a little safer than the swinging models. These will come with a sliding gate safety sensor and when an obstruction is detected, the opening or closing procedure will reverse.
