Many people think that only the rich and famous can install an automatic gate. After all, that’s what you see on any show that features extravagant homes and businesses.
But the actual cost is often well within reach and the practicality makes it even more tempting.
With that in mind, check out these 5 reasons to install an automatic gate from the team at A Straight Up Fence Company in Denver.
1: Increased Privacy
Unwanted visitors never show up at a convenient time. With an automatic driveway gate, unwelcome visitors are easily refused access to your property, saving you the time and trouble of turning them away at your door.
And with a full privacy fence and closed gate, you’ll be able to enjoy your front yard and porch without the neighbors peering in on you.
2: Protection for Kids and Pets
Fences around your property and an automatic gate system keep potential child predators out and have the added bonus of keeping your children on your property. No cars will come speeding into your driveway.
Your children and pets will be able to enjoy the outdoors while you relax.
When you install an automatic gate system, you can enjoy the added peace of mind.
3: Improved Home Security
Your home is probably your most expensive asset, so protect it accordingly. An automatic gate system gives your home extra security and allows you control over any access to your home and property.
An automatic gate system is a criminal deterrent because it creates more risk for would-be thieves and criminals.
You can also add a PIN entry system to allow access to people who need it—even if they don’t have the automatic opener with them.
4: Potential Insurance Discount
Just as Lo-Jacks, car alarms, and other theft deterrents reduce the risk of a stolen car, an automatic gate system reduces the risk for your home. And that can get you cheaper insurance rates since a new automatic gate system reduces the potential liability to your carrier.
Some home insurance companies will offer a discount for adding safety and security systems. Even if it’s only a few dollars a month, the savings will accumulate over time.
Talk with your insurance agent to see what an automatic gate system might save you on your premium.
5: Added Value for Resale
Practically any upgrade to your home or surrounding property will increase the overall value of your home when it comes time to sell it. The best investments are changes that potential homebuyers find to be attractive.
Because of the safety and security of automatic gate systems, the return on investment can be well worth the cost. Also, an automatic gate system increases the curb appeal and will help your home stand out.
