Wrought iron gates automatic gate installation works well for residences and businesses alike. Durable and versatile, they can be swing gates, sliding, or double swing. They typically come in black, but there are other color options. They can be made simple and modern or ornamental and regal in a way that elevates your property. They do need to be painted every few years because they are prone to fade. To prevent rust, iron gates are cleaned and coated beforehand. Sections can be replaced rather than the whole gate if any damage is noticed. They are also heavy and labor intensive.

Wooden automatic gate installation needs to be painted, stained and sealed, but can deteriorate from moisture, insects, and the sun.

Aluminum automatic gate installation is lightweight, not likely to rust, and more affordable, however they are not as sturdy which can offset the point of installing a gate. Both iron and aluminum resist corrosion. Steel is durable, also rust and corrosion resistant, modern, and stronger than iron. It also requires less maintenance such as not requiring coating. It is more expensive and does not come in as many options as iron does. Vinyl is a synthetic material that offers versatile designs and does not rust, but it can crack in the cold and warp in the heat. Luckily, panels can be replaced easily with vinyl automatic gate installation rather than having total gate replacement.
Swing vs Sliding Gates
Swing gates are popular for residential properties. One thing to note before deciding on the movement of your gate is the amount of space you have and the slope of your driveway. These work best on flat planes.It is also important to note the direction the gate should open and close.
Sliding gates are not prone to as much break down as a swing gate. They require more space, but will work with a sloping driveway. These are popular for residential and commercial use. They are harder to pry open than a swing gate and thus may be more safe to thwart off intruders.
Double Swing Gates
Another alternative, the double swing gate tends to be popular for two way traffic driveways like apartment complexes. Each side can work independently of the other. They do require more maintenance since each side works on a separate opener and generally need to be on a flat plane.
