As a homeowner, you may opt for a new
fence installation in Chicagoland for any number of reasons; maybe you want extra privacy, a curb appeal
boost, or a way to outline your property. Many individuals choose a driveway
gate because it satisfies all of these criteria. Read on for a look at
some driveway gate options.
Type of Gate
A fence installation such as a driveway gate offers the unique ability
to define exactly what visitors will see upon arriving at your home. First,
you must determine
what kind of gate you would like. A sliding driveway gate is appropriate for hilly driveways; these gates
may slide open in one direction or part and slide in opposite directions.
If you have a relatively level, flat driveway you may prefer a swinging
gate. Like sliding gates, these may consist of a gate that swings open
in one direction or one that parts in the middle with two panels swinging
away from each other.
Once you have determined what kind of gate you are looking for, consider
the style of your driveway gate. Metal and wood both tend to be popular
choices; a metal fence provides plenty of transparency and offers a modern
look that may enjoy a long working life. A wooden fence is a bit more
rustic and promotes a greater amount of privacy for the homeowner.
Opening and Access
You have already decided in what fashion your gate will open, but you must
also determine exactly how it will operate. Many driveway gates respond
to a unique key code that is created by the homeowner, while others rely
on remote entry similar to garage door openers. Some individuals find
telephone entry most convenient, in which a call from your house can grant
access to the property.
