Selecting The Best Driveway Gates For Your Property
Traveling around Ireland and other parts of the world you see a lot of interesting properties and gates.
Some people like to put their own individual stamp on an entrance gate.
Like a favourite painting or photo, customized gates give free expression to those with individual tastes who might want to show off their musical preferences or family heritage, to give just two examples.
I can’t think of a better greeting to your property than a gate that reminds you of what is important to you: security, or say, family heritage.
Keep those unsolicited intruders away from your door and also have a fine piece of craftsmanship that’s a pleasure to view.
A driveway gate adds an extra measure of security to your home. With so many ready-made and custom built driveway gates available, it can be a stylish addition to your home and needn’t be expensive. Driveway gates can swing or slide open. For greater convenience, you can choose an automatic gate. Which one is best for you? How much is it going to cost?
When looking for a quote for Gates for your home or Business prices may vary quite a bit due to a few key factors. Here are some of the key elements to keep in mind when looking for a quote for Gates. Prices can start as low as €700 depending of the factors below:
1 Size : Obviously the bigger the gate the bigger the cost
2 Weight : A gate can increase in weight due to, heavier gauge steel used, more components used due to design and of course the size.
3 Galvanizing : Cost of galvanizing will change quiet a bit due to the impact of the size and weight.
4 Paint or Powder coating : After galvanizing you can also have your gates painted or powder coated with the latter been the more expensive.
Driveway gates can be made from steel, wrought iron, timber or aluminium. Ready-made gates are often manufactured from galvanised steel or aluminium. Powder coated in a variety of colours, they come in a range of styles and sizes. In most cases, you’ll be able to find a ready-made driveway gate that will be suitable for your driveway. If you can’t find a suitable style or size of ready-made gate, you can always have a custom gate built for you.
The downside to a driveway gate is that if it is not automated, you have to get out of your car to open the gate and then go back and close it after you’ve passed through. This can become a real nuisance in the rain or if you enter and exit your driveway frequently. If you’re undecided, get quotes for automated gates before you settle on a manual gate. You might be surprised by how affordable an automated driveway gate can be.
How Much Does a Driveway Gate Cost?
The cost of your driveway gate will depend on the material it’s made of, its size and whether or not it is custom made. Ready-made gates can be surprisingly affordable. Gates for sloping surfaces generally need to be custom-made.

‘I was very hesitant to put railings up because I have a fabulous view of the river, and didn’t want to lose that. I needed a safety barrier, however. Michael was absolutely fantastic. He understood immediately what I was after, and the railings themselves are far beyond my expectations. They add to the garden rather than detracting from it. I cannot recommend Michael highly enough. He gives excellent advice, flawless service and the end result is spectacular.’
