Things to Consider with Driveway Gate Installation
Position of the Gates
You need to make sure the positioning is easy to spot and to get to for yourself and other cars.

Gate installation can be expensive, so it is important to get a quote before you make any final decisions to ensure it fits within your budget.
Driveway Gate Checklist
- It is important to know that you can make your gate automatic if you want. Even if your gate already exists, you can still make it automated.
- If you are having gates on your driveway, it is essential to have strong and durable posts that can withstand adverse weather conditions.
- You can save money by installing standard size gates. However bespoke made to measure gates will be more effective.
- Always avoid DIY gate automation kits. Employ professional gate fitters.
How Do I Maintain Wooden Gates?
It is so important to maintain wooden gates to ensure they are free from grease and grime, and to avoid rotting.
You can either call a professional, who will have some expert treatments or will be able to give you some advice on how to do it yourself at home. We recommend using spirit-based cleaning products to avoid damaging your wooden gates.
Do I Need Planning Permission for New Driveway Gates?
Whether you need planning permission for new driveway gates will depend on the height you wish to have them, and if any work needs doing for the size.
Also, this will depend on if the gates are next to a road used regularly by other vehicles and members of the public (such as a public footpath).
Which is Better, Wooden or Metal Gates?
Wooden gates and metal gates can both look beautiful, but which is better will depend on the use, whereabouts and look you are wanting.
The durability of metal is better than wood; however, there are special treatments to ensure wooden gates stay durable.
Is it Worth Paying Extra for Automated Gates?
It is definitely worth paying extra for automatic gates if you are a business, or have a lot of deliveries and are out most of the time, or guests come over often.
However, if you already have gates, you can make them automated by calling a professional. If you would like some more advice on this topic, please give us a call on 0191 511 82 40 or send us an email today. We'll always be happy to help.
Sliding or Swinging Automated Gates?
Typically, swinging gates are less expensive than sliding gates, and don't need as much maintenance. Swinging gates are also simple to use, as they require fewer parts than sliding gates.
Sliding gates are better used if there is a slope on your driveway, and for residential and commercial buildings, where more vehicles will be entering and leaving the property.
