5 Great Benefits Of Installing Wrought Iron Gates

Wrought iron gatesDespite the heavy price tag that wrought iron gates can command, many homeowners still choose to install them on their property. If you’re thinking of changing your gates but haven’t yet considered wrought iron, or have previously discounted them for whatever reason, then here are 5 benefits that just might sway your opinion.

The secure option

if you’re after a durable fencing option that’s built to last then you should definitely consider wrought iron gates. In terms of strength, there really is no comparison and if you go for high gates say 2.5 metres and above, then they also act as a deterrent for any possible intruders.

Personalised touch

If you opt for bespoke gates made by a specialist fabricator you can add your very own personalised touch. Whether its a particular design, pattern, or even your initials it’s a great way to make a statement and one that will make your home more appealing. You can include scrolls, curves or even dramatic Art Deco-style angular lines to really reflect your taste. Go mad, go wild, make it personal!

Low maintenance

Unless you really love painting, there’s nothing more fiddly and time consuming than having to sand down and repaint a large set of gates. Imagine the tiny intricate patterns, scrolls, and curves. It’s enough to drive you insane! The good news is that with modern-day wrought iron gates, maintenance is extremely low. Most come treated so you don’t ever need to paint or sand them, simply wipe them down from time to time to keep them looking fresh. How easy is that?

Potential resale

Did you know that by fitting a set of quality wrought iron gates they can improve the resale value of your home? It’s true! There’s nothing like the aesthetic beauty of a set of well-designed iron gates to set a property off and give it kerb appeal and kerb appeal is what buyers love. Even if you’re not thinking of selling, it’s nice to know that your property could increase in value simply by installing some great looking iron fencing.

They look fantastic

Let’s face it, it might only be fencing but if you’re going to install gates, then you might as well have ones that look fantastic. Wrought iron gates have the ability to turn a good home into a great home and despite the fact that they’re strong, easy maintenance, and act as a burglar deterrent, they still manage to look good. No amount of rain, snow, or sunshine is likely to damage them, so they stay looking beautiful for many years to come.
