5 Reasons to Add a Gate to Your Fence

Fencing is great, but have you thought about adding a gate to the fence around your home? At Fence Consultants of West Michigan, our team of highly skilled fence professionals and fencing contractors have more than 200 years of combined experience — so we know all the pros of installing a fence gate. Here are a few to consider:

  1. Privacy. Your privacy doesn’t have to be limited to where your fence lies. A gate ensures privacy of your entire property by keeping prying eyes away your front door and driveway, preventing both neighbors and potential burglars from knowing your comings and goings.
  2. Safety and security. This is about more than just keeping unwanted visitors out. Gates are also great for keeping children and pets inside and safe.
  3. Aesthetics. Attaching a gate will add an element of refinement to your fence and give it a bit more curb appeal. As a fun bonus, it also offers additional space for decorating.
  4. Savings. A gate and fence installation might mean a lower insurance rate since you’ll be less prone to break-ins. Check with your insurance provider for details.
  5. Property value. This goes hand in hand with security and aesthetics. Should you ever decide to put your house on the market, potential buyers will appreciate the additional security, convenience, and curb appeal of your gate. An automated gate entry system will further enhance convenience for you now, and potentially raise your listing price later.
