When you install a new gate, you have to make sure that it improves not only on your security and personal appeal, but also on curb appeal, privacy and through other means that you might not even have thought of. The important thing – especially when you’re planning to sell your house – is to be able to install a gate that provides the best of all aspects, and can do so on the cheap.
A custom gate is a good idea for a number of reasons:
- You can customize the style to make sure it fits perfectly with the curb appeal of the home.
- When you have a privacy fence, it makes sense to modify the gate you install to fit that precise level of privacy through its size, height and ability to conceal what’s in your garden and yard.
- Safety is the most important aspect, and a customized Thornton gate can provide you with a stronger and more versatile lock, advanced hi-tech security and even lights and cameras that enable you (or the future owner of your home) to see exactly who is coming to visit.
Each of these aspects contribute to your home value, and an assessor will take them into account when considering the overall value of your home. A standard gate, even if it’s well-designed and sturdy, might not always fit the requirements of your home enough to improve on your home value to the best extent.
