The Electric Gate Company have fitted electric gates on hundreds of different size properties
Electric gates are no longer reserved for large stately homes or private road mansions. These days, you’ll see them everywhere from your neighbour’s house to that quaint bungalow down the road. The host of benefits is clear and is something that homeowners are becoming more and more aware of. The right gate can significantly improve your family’s quality of life, the value of your investment and the look of your home. Here at The Electric Gate Company, we have worked on hundreds of different sized, shaped and style homes to deliver custom-made electric gates to suit every need. So why should every home consider gating their property?
You may not have a 70” TV or a Rolls Royce sitting on the drive. But you do have the memories your family have made, the products that you’ve worked hard to purchase and your loved ones all under one roof. This is where the security of electric gates benefits every household. They are a deterrent against opportunistic thieves, presenting an additional hurdle into your property and the likelihood of an alarm too. Alongside standard house alarms, they physically stand between intruders and your home, locking securely once you’re inside or preventing entry when you’re out.
Do you find cars regularly turning around on your driveway? Or, even worse, parking across the drive because of your close proximity to a train station? If you’re a family with small children or animals, having someone unknown driving on to your property can present a safety risk. The driver is unaware of the inhabitants and their daily activities. Electric gates are a barrier between unknown people and your home. They block off a safe area for children and animals to roam while putting the safety of your entire family first. In turn, clear signage on the outside of a gate advises drivers that a driveway is constantly in use and should not be blocked.
Reduced Insurance Premiums
Household insurance is calculated according to the risk factors your home presents. As we have mentioned above, electric gates are a deterrent for intruders and act as an additional barrier to your home. As a result, some home insurance companies are able to provide lower premiums or an overall discount for homes that have them. And doesn’t everybody need to save a bit of money here and there?
Range of Designs
As we make our gates from scratch, the scope of design possibilities is endless. This means that, no matter how compact the space, our team can manufacture an attractive and stylish gate for your needs. Forget the need to accommodate large, towering wooden beams. We have metal gates, aluminium gates and bespoke crafted gates that will feel like they’ve always been there.
Increased Property Value
As with any renovation that improves the security and look of your home, you can expect the value of your property to increase too. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be on the way to one day purchasing the mansion of your dreams anyway.
