What Gates Can Do For You

Most homes and buildings have gates. These simple structures serve a variety of purposes that the majority of users never think about until they need to replace agate or install a new gate.

Gates are protection and have been since man first built any structure to live in. Granted, a gate may not provide defense against a truck traveling at 60 miles per hour they do still provide protection. These simple structures keep unwanted animals out, keep animals that you want inside in, and keep children who are too young to understand danger safe.

The protective function of gates saves the owner time and reduces their level of stress as well as help people feel protected.

Gates protect property and lives from theft, damage, and the intrusion of unwanted people. A legal and absolute necessity is a gate for a swimming pool to prevent accidents.

Gates can make a home or business look better and more attractive. Any color, a wood grain finish, a style that fits the design of the structure, and designs that are tailored to produce an impression are readily available. Extremely elaborate and intricate designs can be developed by professionals who design and install gates.

The following are considerations for anyone interested in replacing a gate or installing a new gate.

1) Durability

The gate that you choose should last. The normal range of expected life for a gate is between 20 and 40 years. The real life span of a gate depends on the material that the gate is constructed from.

Aluminum gates provide a superior life span. Aluminum does not rust. Alloys of aluminum are available that provide the level of strength and weather resistance that are capable of weathering a hurricane.

2) Decorative options

Color and form are the most thought of decorative options. Aluminum is a superior material for meeting the demands of form and decoration. Aluminum gates can be formed and machined into any designed that matches the home or structure the gate protects.

The decorative superiority of aluminum is a result or the capacity of the metal to be painted with materials that endure. Any color is possible. Paints that have the look and feel of any type of wood are readily available.

3) A company that does it all

The design, manufacture, and installation of a custom made gate should be done by the same company. Gates that are purchased “off the shelf” need the installation experience that a gate professional offers.

Professional design, construction, and installation save the owner time, money, and give them the look and function that they want. The ease of dealing with one company solves many of the troubling issues with gates.
