Whether you are replacing existing fencing and gates or you are completing the build of a new property, there are 4 main factors you need to consider when you are choosing what type of gates to install.
- Cost — An important consideration for almost every homeowner, the cost of your new gates will depend primarily on the quality of the metal used in their construction. Powder-coated aluminium or steel slat gates are nearly twice as expensive as equivalent Colorbond gates so if price is a crucial factor, Colorbond could be the ideal option for your property.
- Style — For most homeowners, the appearance of their new gates is also another very important factor. In this respect, slats are the clear winner but if you would like to keep costs down, it could be worth considering a mix and match approach: using Colorbond in the rear of your property, where appearances are not so important, with aluminium slat gates in the front.
- Security — How important this factor is will depend to a certain extent on the location of your property and what other defences against intruders it features. The type of gates Joondalup residents normally choose are not intended to repel hardened criminals although such gates are readily available if this is what you require. The main factors that affect the security of a gate are its height and construction.
- Privacy — If you decide to install slat fencing for maximum privacy, you will likely find that gates of a similar construction are the best solution for your needs. Not only will they ensure that your privacy is un-compromised, they will also provide the best solution as far as appearances are concerned.
