Fantastic Home Improvements - 4 Reasons Why Electric Gates are Ideal for Your Home

Have you often thought about installing electric gates at your home but assumed they would be too expensive and a nuisance to maintain? You need to read on and find out why these gates are one of the most beneficial home improvements you could make.

#1 They add value

Let’s start with the obvious: adding value to your property. When it comes to improving your home, you want any changes to not only make it or versatile and comfortable, but add value to its price tag too. Electric gates do just that: they really give your home kerb appeal adding a certain sense of prestige, meaning that potential buyers get the right impression from the moment they look at the property.

#2 They decrease insurance premiums

Electric gates at any property add an extra layer of security. Even though you don’t live in a crime-ridden area, this is surely a welcome benefit. Only the people you let onto your property can reach your front door, perfect for when you are home alone.

Insurers like them too and it means that your home is less likely to be a target for thieves and burglars. All of this makes for a welcome reduction on your insurance premiums.

#3 They are uber-convenient

Gates are a sign of where your property starts and ends, as well as denoting the ‘official’ means of entering your property. If the gates are open, it means people can walk in but with manual gates, with the wind and the rain, no one can really be bothered to get out of their car or lister at the gate to close or open the gates.

With electric gates at your property, you can wave goodbye to all this inconvenience, remaining in the comfort of your car whilst the gates open. Better still, as you drive away, you can be confident they are closing thus, protecting your property.

#4 They are safe

Many people worry about how safe electric gates are to use, especially when they have children and/or pets. There are a few things you need to know;

  • They must be well-maintained if the electric gates are in regular use, and that includes any gates you may have ‘inherited’ with the property.
  • Electric gates must have a no-crush zone so that there is a space for someone to stand if the gates don’t detect they are there.
  • Most modern gates will know stop if they feel a resistance when they open or close.
  • Sensors also detect obstacles and will stop operating until this obstacle has been moved.
  • You must warn people that the gates are electric and liable to open and close at certain times.
