A driveway gate enhances your home’s entrance and it also provides security. The only downside to it is that you have to get out of the car to open or close it if it’s not automated.
The cost of a driveway depends on the material being used, the size of the driveway, and whether it is customised or not. There are those that cost as little as $150 but you may have concerns about the quality of material.
A more sensible buy would be a pair of gates that costs $400 to $500 that’s made of powder-coated galvanised steel gates.
The least costly means for you to have a driveway gate is to get in kit form. This is usually composed of a pair of gates, two posts, and a hardware and it usually costs under $1,000.
Those DIY kits that are made in aluminium can cost $1,700 up to $4,000 for wide telescoping kits. These prices are for level surfaces only and they do not include installation fees.
For sloping driveways, the gates may cost more, but there are professionals who make custom lengths for no additional charge.
It’s true that driveway gate kits are complete with installation instructions, but it’s not going to be an easy job. The posts alone have to be built strongly for them to be able to bear the weight of the gates.
