When done well, a new gate provides a beautiful entrance to your property. This is why it is important to hire an experienced contractor who will work with you to create an entrance which looks and functions exactly as you envisioned. In this guide, Harrier Gates Ltd explains some of the considerations and services which go into the design and installation of new gates in Weybridge, Cranleigh and the surrounding areas. We offer complete solutions, including the construction of brick pillars and brick posts.
The first step in the process is to determine why you are installing/replacing a gate. This will help us provide suitable advice and ensure you get the best entrance system for your needs. With proper planning, a gate provides the following benefits:
• Improved Kerb Appeal
• Positive First Impression
• A Professional Image
• Greater Security
• Ease of Property Entry
• Control Over Property Access
To achieve desired results, it is important to think about the following:
When building brick pillars and supplying gates, we advise taking the style of your property into account to create an entrance which complements and enhances your home or commercial premises in Weybridge. Also think about the overall impression you want to create – different styles can be welcoming, imposing, grand etc.
In addition, you may wish to look at what is fashionable and what other homeowners in your neighbourhood have done, as well as the maintenance requirements of different options.
It is also important to consider the position of the gate, its primary function and the streetscape. These factors will help identify the best options for your project, including the style and material of gates and brick posts as well as automation options.
Harrier Gates Ltd offers a wide range of style options, from traditional wooden gates to modern metal designs and security gates. We also provide bespoke gates, swing and sliding driveway gates, and various access controls.
Electric gates are the leading choice for customers in Weybridge who expect to use their gates regularly. Automation improves convenience and security, especially when combined with entry phone systems. When opting for electric gates, we recommend brick pillars or posts for maximum strength and reliability.
Harrier Gates supplies both wood and metal automated gates which can either swing or slide open, depending on preference and available space. Our contractors also install multi-user access control and entry phone systems with or without video.
Some other things to consider to ensure ideal results include:
• Remember to allow for the width of brick posts
• Will you benefit from pedestrian access? A large gate you need to open every time you want to leave on foot can be a nuisance
• How will the postman or couriers make deliveries? You may wish to install a letterbox on the gate or brick pillars
• What is your budget? The cost of gates varies depending on the size, design, controls and safety devices – Harrier Gates provides a no-obligation quote for clients in Weybridge and surrounds, and can help you stay within your budget
