METAL VERSES TIMBER GATES

There are many reasons for someone to want a metal gate at the entrance of their property over a wooden gate and vice versa.

 

Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages to both that you may not have thought about.

 

METAL GATES

  • Can be less expensive than wooden gates
  • Easier to maintain than wooden gates: very low maintenance, not requiring re-coating of paint or stain.
  • Strong and secure: Metal gates are very strong but also light when made out of aluminium.
  • Durable
  • Blend in with their surroundings
  • Metal gates are powder coated and treated to withstand harsh costal environments
  • But in the unlikely event you damage a metal gate, it’s not as easy to replace like a piece of timber, the gate is welded together making repairing very costly.

 

TIMBER GATES

  • The natural look of wooden gates make them a beautiful addition to your home
  • Timber gates look very organic without loosing style
  • Uniqueness – No two wooden gates the same!
  • Hardwood gates are strong and durable
  • Wooden gates are a status symbol
  • Wooden gates require more periodic maintenance than metal gates: Timber can last a long time but you will need to keep up the maintenance (example re-staining timber every 6-12 months). A well maintained timber gate will last a very long time. Repair work is easier on a timber gate due to the fact that the timber is screwed to the gate and you can make a timber gate look as new just with a coat of paint!
