There are many questions you must consider when installing a new fence. First: What material type do you want your fence to be? Can I install an extra gate into my fence? At Hercules Fence of Northern Virginia, we work with wood, wrought iron, aluminum, chain link, and vinyl or PVC. We are happy to assist you in determining what material type is best for your residential or commercial property.
However, how many gates you desire at your place is more of a personal decision. While our fencing experts can provide some basic assistance, you’ll have to finalize what works best for your yard. We do find that having only one gate is usually not sufficient for ease of use and being able to enter your property. Homeowners must be able to access their homes from more than one point, so at least two gates are essential.
The Importance of an Extra Gate
A front yard gate will allow you to leave your property from this point and allow your visitors to enter your yard from your driveway quickly. On the other hand, a gate placed in the back of your fence will let the movement of items in and out of the back.
Do you have an outbuilding or shed outside of your fence’s perimeter? Then you should install an extra gate into your fence to bring equipment and tools quickly in and out of your yard. The last thing you want a new fence to do is to make living and working on your property harder!
Consider the Gate’s Size and Width
The size and width of your gate is also a critical component to consider. A slimmer-sized gate will be ideal in areas where primarily people will be entering and exiting. In addition, a wider gate is necessary for moving anything from lawnmowers to equipment from one place to another.
Our team understands that when you install an extra gate into your fence at a business might be more for security. So, more than one gate might be seen as a vulnerable access point. That is why we also recommend you consider commercial gate operators. Contact us for any fencing needs for your residential or commercial property!
