All gates need to be functional - that is they are the means by which to enter or exit a property. The need is what defines the type of gate best suited for the property. To begin with, gates come in all types: chain link, wood, vinyl, or iron. The fence height is usually determined by the fence height. A gate may swing open, slide manually or have automation capacities. A gate may be pedestrian-sized, wider for the lawn mowers to get in and out of the yard, or driveway gates in single or double panels. Lastly, a gate may be stylish by design to add that curb appeal which impresses the neighbors.
