Driveway Gates Adding Value to a Property

Home is where we should feel safe, happy and secure. It’s natural to want to take your property’s security into your own hands, and there are many different approaches you can take. 

Building a ‘safe retreat’ is perhaps not as straightforward as it seems, and it depends on risks that concern you most. Burglary is a real concern in the UK, with people facing a one in 50 chance of being a victim. That said, there’s a vast range of security products that can help to alleviate the fear of your home being broken into, such as:

  • CCTV
  • Gates
  • Alarms
  • Smart doorbells
  • Smart locks
  • Security lights
  • Safes


Added security will always be a great selling point

Any combination of security products can help to create a home that’s well protected, so you can immediately add value to your home. It’s said that the added security of automated gates can add up to 5% extra value to your home whilst boosting kerb appeal. Gates provide a physical barrier to burglars, making it much more difficult for opportunist criminals to reach your property. A locked gate is one of the most effective security measures, acting as a deterrent while delivering privacy.
First impressions really do matter

Beyond security, the look is, of course, critical to your property’s overall value. A tired set of driveway gates that are riddled with rust, and seemingly ready to collapse, will be a detriment to value. Yet, a high-quality metal or wooden gate that’s perfectly fitted to be secure and robust may play an essential role in boosting your home’s worth, especially if it looks the part. Fortunately, today it’s a lot easier to find a gate that’s just right for your home, taking into account your property’s architectural style and exterior design elements. For example, if you own an Edwardian detached house in the secluded countryside, it could be wise to invest in robust wrought iron driveway gates with elegant Edwardian details. For modern properties where maximum privacy is required, wooden gates made of Scandinavian Redwood are a fine choice, and they will remain strong for many years.
