Adding value with automatic gates

What links Theresa May, David Beckham and Sir Bruce Forysthe? They all live behind exclusive automatic gates that give them privacy, exclusivity and security. But the peace of mind that comes with a pair of strong and durable gates isn’t just for the rich and famous. In fact, automated gates are becoming the latest must have for every home.

Adding value

In some neighborhoods, like Surrey’s Virginia Water, a home without automatic gates is like a fish out of water and fitting them to your property simply brings it up to the expected standards of the area. However, when you make the decision to fit automatic gates, whether it’s to stop children or dogs running out into the road or to deter burglars, there’s no doubt that a pair of elegant and well designed gates will add value to your home

A stylish addition

Choosing the right gates makes a huge difference to the kerb appeal of your property. Grand imposing metal gates might look appropriate on Downing Street, but they may look out of place on the drive of your Victorian semi. Timber gates are sympathetic to a country property, while aluminum gates are lightweight but extremely robust and a more modern choice. Whatever your choice, make sure your gates suit your lifestyle and access requirements.

Automate your lifestyle

There’s no doubt that automating your gates not only adds convenience but a real wow factor to your property, which is why automatic gates are one of the fastest growing areas of home improvement. There’s complete flexibility in the way your gates can behave, so spend some time thinking about the features you may need to suit your lifestyle. If you’ll be using your gates often then make sure the mechanism is robust enough to stand up to frequent use. If you have small children and pets to protect, ensure your mechanism has the safety features you need.
