Deciding whether to install an automatic gate on your property is a big decision. As you look at your options, consider that while electric gates may not work with some types of properties, due to space or budgetary constraints, we’ve found them to be a worthwhile addition in the majority of cases. To help you with your decision, we’ve gone through and addressed some of the top advantages that come with having an automated gate.
Increased Property Security
This is usually the number one reason why our customers find themselves considering an automatic gate. These gates do a great job of keeping unwanted individuals off your property. Having a gate makes it much more difficult for burglars to gain access to your home or business. Gates act as a very important first step in protecting your home and property.
Increased Security for Your Loved Ones
If you have small children or pets, an automatic gate will help to keep them safe. You won’t have to worry anymore about your child wandering out into the street or your pet getting lost. In addition, it will serve to keep dangerous or nuisance animals from getting on to your property.
More Aesthetic Appeal
A beautiful gate in front of your home will do wonders for its curb appeal. Automatic gates will lend an air of style and class to your property. It will definitely stand out from those properties without gates.
Increased Property Value
This benefit goes hand in hand with the property’s curb appeal. The more beautiful your home or business looks from the outside, the more value you’ll have to take advantage of if you decide to sell. And if you do decide to sell, the fact that your property has the increased security of an automatic gate may help ease the sale.
Potential for Lower Insurance
While you’ll have to check with your insurance provider, some of our clients have found that their insurance premiums decrease thanks to their new automatic gate. As gates increase security, they also decrease the chance that you’ll have to file a claim for stolen property – which insurers love. You’ll be able to save money in the long run.
Automatic gates make it much easier to enjoy the privacy you deserve while on your property. If you frequently have to deal with solicitors, that gate will prevent them from getting to your front door. If you live on a busy street, the gate will prevent passersby from gawking while you’re working in the garden or relaxing on the porch.
With regular maintenance, your automatic gate will last for years and years. Most automatic gates don’t require much in terms of maintenance (but they do require some) meaning that they’ll be a reliable property addition for quite some time. So, while an automatic gate may require an initial investment, it is one that will pay off in time.
The options are nearly endless when it comes to automatic gates. Not only will you have a variety of materials from you can choose, but you’ll also have a number of styles to choose from as well. Whether you want something modern or old-fashioned, you’ll be able to find a gate that matches your tastes as well as your needs.
Manual gates can be a hassle. They can easily be left open accidentally or opened by those who shouldn’t have access to the property. With an automatic gate, those are two items you won’t have to worry about again. They also prove to be quite beneficial in inclement weather. There’ll be no more struggling with the gate during the monsoon season or while it’s blisteringly hot.
