Metal garden gates come in a range of styles suitable for most homes. They can enhance character, improving security, and boosting overall market value too. If you’ve been thinking about installing steel gates but something is holding you back, here are a few reasons that could change your mind.

If you still have questions at the end why not contact a member of our knowledgeable team to discuss your requirements in more detail?

1. Incredible strength

Metal gates are far stronger than other types of gates. Whether you go for durable wrought iron or steel gates, they are likely to stand the test of time. Metal garden gates won’t twist or bend and, unlike wood or vinyl gates, you won’t need to carry out much maintenance.

Over time timber and other materials can erode. This affects the gates’ aesthetics and creates a poor first impression when people visit.

2. Elegance and character

Looks aren’t everything but they do matter. If you’re looking to add a striking appearance to your home, then metal garden gates can do just that.

To create the best impact, it’s important to choose products that complement the style and character of your home – be that traditional or modern.

Fortunately, metal gates come in a range of sizes, styles, and finishes designed to help you achieve your desired vision. From raw metal gates with no added embellishments through to installations that boast a distressed weathered look, installations can be tweaked to achieve your desired style.

At Parallel Fabrications, we offer an array of finishings, including RAL colours, galvanising, and powder coatings so you can get a bespoke look.

3. Increased market value

At some point in the future, you may move. In which case you’ll want to get the best return on your home. Potential buyers will feel more inclined to buy if their first interaction with your home is positive. Just imagine their reaction when they see your stylish metal garden gates.

That’s why it’s so important to invest in gates sympathetic to the age, design, and style of your home. An installation that’s out of sync with its surrounding environment will deter would-be property hunters – no matter how immaculate and stylish the interior of your property might be. Both wrought iron and steel garden gates offer a timeless appeal.

4. Additional security

Not only will metal garden gates appeal to prospective buyers due to their appearance, but many people will also be impressed with their security.

Metal garden gates can help protect your home from prospective intruders. Gates create an additional boundary for thieves to overcome, making it much harder for them to break in. What’s more, home security gates are a good deterrent, meaning would-be thieves are less likely to attempt a break-in in the first place.

As well as keeping potential intruders out, metal garden gates are just as good at keeping people and animals in. If you own pets or have children, gates will prevent them leaving the garden and venturing out onto the road. This will give you peace of mind while going about your daily household duties.

On a related note, wouldn’t you like to prevent motorists using your driveway as a turning point? Metal gates will stop this kind of behaviour and keep family members safe at the same time.
