If you own a home or other piece of property, you likely understand the importance of security and privacy. No one wants to feel insecure in their own home.
Installing a security system and fence is essential, but your perimeter protection is incomplete without a good security gate. The right security gate keeps trespassers out while enhancing the privacy, curb appeal, and property value of your home. If you’re interested in installing a security gate, contact us today.
Enhancing Your Home’s Security
It’s no secret that burglars take advantage of easy opportunities. When choosing a home to burglarize, a potential burglar would be much more likely to choose one without a security gate than one with a security gate. The same goes for any other intruder (human or animal) that might want to wander onto your property.
Like a security fence, a security gate provides a significant physical obstacle to anyone looking to enter your property unannounced. A good security gate will ensure that no one can enter your property unannounced without climbing. A security fence alone will still leave at least one entry point (your driveway) open to trespassers.
Security gates don’t just keep trespassers out; they also keep loved ones in. Young children and pets tend to explore, sometimes putting themselves in danger. Ensure the safety of your loved ones and your peace of mind by installing a security gate to keep your little loved ones from wandering off.
Protecting Your Privacy
No one likes waking up to headlights from a stranger’s car shining through their windows. Even if the car is simply turning around, the presence of an unauthorized car on your driveway can be a nuisance. Worse, some people might drive onto your driveway to park or loiter. A security gate will keep these unwanted visitors from driving onto your property.
A security gate can also provide privacy from nosy neighbors or passers-by. Your home and yard should be a place where you and your family can relax without worrying about whether anyone is looking at you. A security gate, especially one with privacy panels, will help keep unwanted eyes out, allowing you and your family to maintain peace and privacy.
Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal
A good security gate doesn’t just protect your property; it also improves the curb appeal of your home. If you’ve ever driven past a nice house with a proud, well-designed wrought iron gate in front, you know how beautiful a gate can be. Choosing the right gate will impress neighbors and passers-by alike.
Typically, you’ll want your security gate to complement the style and color of your house and fence. If your home has a classic or colonial style, you may want to opt for an ornate and stately wrought iron gate. On the other hand, if your home has a contemporary or modern style, you might want a simple wood design with a steel frame.
You May Save on Insurance
Insurance companies love homeowners who are proactive about protecting their property. Installing a security gate might convince your insurance company to lower your premiums, allowing you to save some of your hard-earned cash every month.
Additionally, a good security gate will likely increase the value of your home. A nice-looking security gate lends a property a high-end appeal that will not be lost on potential buyers. Psychologically, people will think your property is worth more simply because it has better security and privacy. Plus, many buyers are willing to pay a premium for a home with a great security fence and gate already installed.
Finally, it’s worth noting that security gates can last for decades without any significant maintenance or repairs. Unlike some security fences, which may need to be painted, stained, or repaired every few years, a well-built security gate will only require minimal maintenance. This means a gate is an upfront investment that will not drain your money and time down the road.
“Very easy and open communication”
Very easy and open communication through the whole fencing process. Workers were kind, hardworking and knowledgeable. They were able to make suggestions during installation that greatly improved the fencing outcome in an irregular shaped yard. The fence came out beautifully and blends in perfectly with our wood line

Electric Security Gates
If you choose to install an electric security gate, you’ll be installing something that’s both secure and convenient to use. Manual security gates are often a pain to operate, especially during cold or inclement weather. However, with an electric gate, you’ll be able to open the gate without getting out of your car and pulling the gate open by hand.
Typically, you can choose between installing an electric gate with a keypad, a card reader, or remote control. All of these options will allow you to open the gate from the comfort of your front seat. A card reader or remote control are the most secure options, but a keypad will allow guests to open the gate independently if they know the code ahead of time.
Regardless of the kind of security gate you install, choosing to install one and proactively protect your home will give you and your family peace of mind for years to come. To learn more about installing a security gate, reach out to us today.
