Things to Know About Driveway Gates

Driveway gates are usually installed for both security and aesthetic reasons. Sometimes, they are designed to keep things in rather than out. Dogs, cats, and little children can wonder out of the property unnoticed. They also offer privacy from neighbors. Regardless of your motivation to have a driveway gate installed, Bob’s Advance Garage Doors will make the entire process easy and quick for you.

Manual or Automatic

Driveway gates can be manual or automatic. Manual gates are simple and cheaper. However, they can prove to be an inconvenience if you come home when it is raining. If you don’t want to brave some wetness, then you are better off going for an automated gate. Even if the gate is made from timber, it can still be automated. For metal, metal framed, and composite driveway gates, the best approach would be to install below ground automation kits. If you opt for a timber gate, above ground automation kits are preferred.


The designs of driveway gates are quite varied. Primarily the gate is either sliding or swinging (bi-parting or single swing). The outline of the top of the gate can be flat top, single bow, or double bow. Artistic features such as patterns can be added to enhance a gate’s beauty. Premanufactured gates in the market come in limited number of designs and this can be underwhelming if you wish to have a unique gate. These gates are convenient as you can simply purchase one and have it installed. If you fail to find a driveway gate that you like, it is not the end. You can buy materials and have skilled technicians from Bob’s Advance Garage Doors build you a gate from scratch that is designed and put together as per your wishes.


Different materials such as wood, metal, or composite materials can be used to make a driveway gate. Factors that determine the material a contractor will use include the already existing structures (the driveway gate is supposed to compliment these) and the client’s preference. Other things to consider include desired maintenance frequency, cost, design options, and primary function (style, privacy, security). Metals such as steel, aluminum, cast iron, and wrought iron are commonly used to craft driveway gates. The metals offer more design options as they are malleable. Wrought iron is recommended as it is durable and strong. Composite gates are usually made from a metal frame that is coated with polyvinyl chloride. They are increasingly being used as they have minimal maintenance costs while still offering beauty, strength, and longevity.
