The pros and cons of automatic gates at St Andrews properties

We all look to invest in our homes, making improvements that add value to our property and one improvement that can add instant appeal and financial value is automatic gates.

Convenient, safe and promotion privacy when you use your garden, automatic gates are a fabulous addition and so, if you need any persuading here are our top pros (and some cons) about these kinds of gates...


  • Convenient - without a doubt, the most important pro of adding automatic gates to your St Andrews property is the convenience that they offer you and your family. Weather, from howling gales to lashing rain, is something that we all hate - making running from car to home an unpleasant experience. With the click of the remote control or a few taps of the keypad, the automatic gates open and close... without your needing to get wet or blown about.
  • Added security - and this is a common reason why many people opt for automatic gates for their St Andrews home. The feeling of security that these gates give to any home and its occupants is instant. The gates stand firm in the face of all kinds of abuse!
  • Adds value - like many home improvements that we choose to make, automatic gates at St Andrews properties are an investment that adds value to a property, more so when installed and maintained professionally. If you are looking to sell your property in the future, automatic gates can be one of the investments you make that can pay dividends.

But, there are some 'cons' that you may want to bear in mind:

  • Price - in many senses, automatic gates are expensive BUT, rather than seeing them as expensive, see them as an investment. They do add value to your property after all.
  • Electricity - as automatic gates at St Andrews properties are powered, some people wonder if this will have a huge impact on their electricity bills. But, the sophistication of solar power now means that many automatic gates can now operate effectively via alternative means, rather than from the mains
  • Malfunctions - some people see this as a con BUT, modern automatic gates are such that they rarely malfunction, especially if they are maintained well and on a regular basis.

Automatics gates are an addition that any St Andrews homeowner will be pleased they invested in! Safe, secure and uber-convenient, why don't you look at automatic gates for your home or business?
