Tips Selecting a Vinyl Driveway Gate

To create a distinguished look in front of your home, as well as provide an extra layer of privacy and safety, adding a driveway gate to the landscape is crucial.

Getting that “right look” can be much easier when you work with a professional.

Driveway gates can be the most important part of installing a new fence that encases the entire landscape and home. It is the driveway gates that get the most use out of the entire fence and endure the most abuse than any other part of the fence as well. Therefore, it is highly important that whatever fence style you choose, the gate portion is made of the same high grade materials and hardware.

We believe vinyl is the best outdoor material to choose for driveway gates because of its economic benefits and resilience to weather’s deteriorating effects.

Our vinyl driveway gates are designed to be adjustable. We use techniques that will keep them from sagging or bowing. Hardware is another important part of a gate, as it is what holds everything together. If you have a gate that is super affordable, but falls apart or rusts at the joints, then you haven’t really saved money at all.

The best tip for the homeowner considering installing driveway gates is to look into all available options.

  • Step 1: Check for Quality: If vinyl is chosen as the material to be used in constructing your new driveway gates, then checking to make sure the vinyl and the hardware is of the highest quality is step one.
  • Step 2: Focus on Design: Once you know you are working with quality materials, such as rolling or swinging gates featuring a hidden steel frame, then you can focus on which design appeals to you the most. Decide what gate style best fits the space and the overall feel of the homes’ exterior. Considering the gate shape and size of the overall space is key.

Fence designs can vary based on styles. A solid style offers the most privacy possible, whereas a basket weave, or picket style does not. Whatever you decide, just make sure your driveway gate compliments the same fence style. For example, you wouldn’t want a basket weave gate paired with an adjoining picket fence!
