When building a fence, you are most likely going to need a gate. While a fence is built to protect your yard and keep potential intruders out, you will still need a way to access it yourself. That is where a gate comes in very handy. While you might just think a gate is a gate, this isn’t the case. There are many different choices to make when deciding what kind of gate you want.
Of course, the primary function of a gate is to provide entry and exit to your yard and act as a layer of security, but it is so much more than that. Just like you want your fence and the rest of your yard to look attractive, the same goes for your gate. You want your gate to be attractive and inviting, as it will be the first thing people see when entering your yard. If you want to make a great first impression, a gorgeous gate can do just that.
Gates also come in different shape, sizes and styles. Some people will want a gate that’s size fits perfectly with their existing fence, while others may want their gate to be larger or smaller in size. Also, some people might want a gate that shares the same style as their fence, while others may want their gate to feature an arbor or other unique design or feature.
In addition to all of those considerations, you also need to choose what type of material to use for your gate. Of course, you will probably want to match up the material of your gate with the material of your fence, but some people might enjoy the contrast of using something different.
While materials like wood or iron are affordable and common, they have their drawbacks. For example, most metals can rust and there is normally only a limited amount of designs for metal fences. Also, they can be incredibly heavy and lead to a difficult installation process. While wood is easier to install, it is much more difficult to maintain. With wood gates and fences, you need to paint and stain, in addition to watching out for rot, splinters, cracking and more. It can take a lot of work to keep your wooden gates looking great, especially in areas with bad weather.
If you are looking for a low maintenance and high quality material to use for your gates, consider vinyl. The reason vinyl is so low maintenance is because it doesn’t suffer from the same issues we mentioned earlier. It will not rot, will not discolour, won’t chip and it doesn’t require any sealing, painting or staining at all.
In addition to being very easy and affordable to maintain, there are many other benefits of using vinyl for your gate. These include:
