Installing New Fencing

Hello, my name is Barry and this is my new fencing blog. Until a couple of years ago, I didn't think twice about fencing. I truly believed that there were only a couple of types of fence and that they all more or less did the same job. But boy was I wrong. When my brother-in-law Stan came to visit me, he explained that he had recently retrained as a fencing contractor and that he would be willing to do some work on my yard. I helped him to install a new glass fence around the pool and a lovely wooden picket around the exterior of my home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Why Automated Driveway Gates Make a Worthwhile Investment

If you are installing new driveway gates, there are various considerations you would have. Not only should you ensure that the new gates will secure your premises, but you also have to select gates that will complement the kerb appeal of your property. Although automated gates were initially a staple for commercial facilities, they are steadily gaining popularity for residential applications too as they provide numerous advantages. Nevertheless, some homeowners may need convincing to spend the extra money since automated gates cost more than their conventional swinging counterparts do. So why would automatic driveway gates make a worthwhile investment? 

Enhanced valuation of your residence

An often-overlooked benefit of switching to automatic driveway gates is the impact they will have on your property's value. These gates will typically be viewed as prestigious since they are a contemporary way of securing your property. Thus, potential buyers with an affinity for modern design would be interested in purchasing your home, as they will not have to worry about upgrading their gates once they move in. Additionally, the automated gates can incorporate as much artistic flair as you would want in their design. Therefore, you can say goodbye to traditional barriers that made properties seem like fortresses all in the name of boosting security. 

Enhanced space efficiency

One aspect homeowners rarely consider when installing swing gates is how they have the potential of causing space restrictions. Since the gates swing open and shut, they would need additional space allowance depending on which direction they will be operated. If you have a small driveway, automated gates would be a better fit. The parallel operation ensures you make the most of the space available to you.  

Enhanced security without compromising freedom

If you have pets or children, your primary concern would be ensuring they stay safe on your property. However, if you have a traditional gate that can be manually operated, you would have to keep a watchful eye on your pets and kids as they play outside to make sure they do not wander out of the gates. If you would like to have peace of mind without having to restrict your pets and kids to playing indoors or in the backyard, you should invest in automated driveway gates. These gates require passcodes to open and close, making it harder for young children to gain access to the street accidentally. As long as your automated gates are shut, your kids and pets can enjoy their freedom safely within your property's boundaries
