5 Factors to Consider When Picking A Driveway Gate

Driveway gates are an elegant and functional addition to your home which can help make your property feel more secure and increase your home’s value. In many cases, installing a driveway gate might seem like a no-brainer, but there are many styles to choose from, and it can be hard to know where to start. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing your perfect driveway gate.

Budget

It might go without saying, but a big part of which driveway gate you should choose is knowing how much you are willing to pay. As with fences, gate prices can vary widely. We recommend getting in touch with us for a quote so that you can budget properly.

Design

You’ll be seeing your driveway gate every day that you come home from work, and if your driveway opens up to the front of your house, your driveway gate is one of the first things your visitors will notice about your house. At Mossy Oak, we offer a wide variety of gate styles, from single swing to double swing, from V-track sliding to cantilever and box frame. We can even install an overhead I-beam gate, if you’d like.

Security

Gates play an important role in overall home security, which is why Mossy Oak offers a whole host of security options for driveway gates. If you’re looking for peace of mind, we can add access control systems like keypads or telephone entry, or if you’re looking for a serious security system, we can equip your gate with closed circuit television monitoring, mag locks, or a vehicle tracking system. Whatever your security needs, Mossy Oak has you covered.

Automation

A driveway gate is only as good as its parts, which is why we use power wheels and high-quality gate hardware when we install an automated driveway gate. We can build out your gate with keyless entry and motion sensors so that your parking experience is a breeze every time.

Privacy

Last but not least, privacy is a key factor in choosing the type of driveway gate you’d like. Think about your driveway and your garage—will your kids be drawing on the driveway with chalk in the summer? Maybe you’d like to keep them away from prying eyes. Or perhaps you like to work on a pricey car or boat in your down time? You want to make sure to choose a gate with high privacy value.
