What materials are available to me?
Regardless of the gate design you choose, we always recommend using a steel frame for your gate to add stability and strength to it. The gates that we fabricate are mostly wrought iron gates or wood gates with a steel frame. The wood of choice for your driveway gate is Redwood, as it is light and withstands environmental elements very well.
An alternative type of steel you can use for your driveway gate is stainless steel. It is more expensive than regular steel, but it resists corrosion and rust far better than regular steel does. Some people would also prefer using stainless steel for aesthetic reasons.
So, finally, what’s fashionable? Well, we’re certainly seeing an increase in contemporary, close-boarded, automated gates on top-end modern homes. Some people prefer steel gates as they are robust and require little maintenance, whereas others prefer the look of close-boarded timber gates as they offer a higher degree of privacy.
