On this page, we consider three key steps to take for installing safe and aesthetically pleasing customised gates at your home.
1. DESIGN AND CUSTOMISATION
The first step is to look at gates or railings in different styles, to find ones that suit your domestic property and lifestyle requirements best. Do you want elaborate iron gates for your driveway, or small wooden gates for your garden? Are you more interested in the latest electric gates, with advanced audio and video entry systems, or would you prefer a traditional gate without automation? You should take into consideration the style and period of your property too. For example, if you have a Victorian house in the Watford area, you may want to consider wrought iron gates and railings for an authentic Victorian look.
To help you choose the perfect perimeter features for your home, we undertake full site surveys and offer free advice on which gates and railings will suit your property. We recommend solutions to fit with the exterior of your home, your budget and needs.
2. CONSIDER GATE SECURITY
We provide perimeter solutions that not only add kerb appeal to your Watford property, but effective security. There are numerous types of security gates, locks and entry systems available and the best choice depends on how secure you would like your property to be. If you’re having wooden gates installed in your garden, an affordable yet effective padlock and pad bolt combination may be all you require. Alternatively, you may feel more secure with electronic systems, such as keypads, Maglock systems, audio and video entry.
We can manufacture bespoke security gates and electric gates to your exact specifications. Call us today to arrange a free site visit and quotation.
3. DECIDE ON YOUR BOUNDARY OPTIONS
For continuity, you may want to consider railings and boundary options to compliment your chosen gate. Timber wooden gates often work best with timber fence panelling to create a seamless perimeter, or you may be interested in pairing metal fencing with steel or iron metal gates. Railings can be manufactured and installed in varying heights, secured from ground level or on top of a wall. Alternatively, electric gates, metal gates, wooden gates and security gates can all be fitted into existing perimeter installations, such as brick walls.
Riverside Ironworks Ltd specialise in bespoke wrought iron gates and railings, designed with strength and aesthetic appeal in mind. We add our own resilient finishes to our iron gates and railings to stop them corroding. Some iron gates and railings for domestic properties in Watford and Hertfordshire, may require planning permission.
