2 Reasons to Replace Your Wooden Gate with Aluminum Material

Is your standard wooden gate beginning to show signs of wear and tear? Is it starting to look unsightly and appears to be? Are you searching for a replacement but are unsure where to start? If so, then here are two reasons why you should consider replacing your wooden gate with aluminum material.

Durable and Long-Lasting

One of the top reasons you should consider replacing your wooden gate with an aluminum gate is that aluminum is exceptionally durable and long-lasting. This material is naturally resistant to all elements and corrosion, it won’t lose its strength over the years or be damaged by regular weather.

Wood gates require regular upkeep to maintain the integrity and stability of your gate. Without regular staining and recoating, your gate will start to absorb water slowly rotting from the inside out. With aluminum, this is not a worry, the metal material cannot mold but is also water resistant so will not rust like iron or stainless steel can. Aluminum gates are a perfect solution for anyone looking for a product that will last for many years without having to be regularly cleaned and serviced.

Highly Customizable

Another reason to make the switch from a wooden gate to an aluminum gate is its ability to be customized to your property. If your main reason for having a wooden gate is the aesthetic it gives, that is no setback. Aluminum materials can be coated and designed to mirror the style and look of all the common types of wood meaning you can have the classic look of wood without all the maintenance. These gates can also be customized to match all other common materials on the market or use a design that completely unique to aluminum. Aluminum gates will also go through a powder coating process to give the gate an extra layer of protection, during this process a coating can be applied to make the gate any color. If at any time in the future, you want to revamp your design the gate can easily be recoating to a different color.

This means you can create a unique design that will be completely unique to your property, giving you the beauty and safety, you’re looking for, while adding curb appeal and value to your home.
