If you’re considering installing an aluminium gate you’ve come to the right place. We’ll gladly geek-out all day on the finer details with you. For now, let’s cover some of the basics when it comes to choosing the right aluminium gate for your Worcestershire or West Midlands property

Firstly, why aluminium gates?

Stylish. Safe. Strong.

Aluminium gates are growing increasingly popular when it comes to frontal renovations and gate installation. Not only can aluminium gates provide bucket loads of curb appeal and sought-after stylishness to your home, but they can also greatly increase safety and security for you and your family.

Aluminium gates are great for both residential and commercial properties. They’re exceptionally hard-wearing and highly unlikely to be damaged by weather. Aluminium gates also don’t rust or go brittle like many other types of metal. They’re damn strong too, which makes them a great option from a security perspective.

When it comes to security, aluminium gates are exceptionally good: not only do they provide a deterrent for intruders (and mothers-in-law), but they’re also great at keeping the smaller members of your home in and away from the road. Strong aluminium gates will keep your vehicles safe, too.

How much for an aluminium gate?

Spending. Suitability. Style.

Costs vary depending on the size and scale of the project. The great news is we can provide a free survey and go through all the options with you, with no pressure to commit. That’s when our 40+ years of experience will really come in handy.

Aluminium driveway gates are also very low cost and low maintenance once they’ve been installed, meaning you won’t be forking out on lots of repairs. They’re also competitively priced – particularly when you compare them to their wallet-friendly pals, wooden gates.

The great thing about electric aluminium gates is that they can be designed to suit your requirements. Not only can we create the right size and fit, but also the perfect look. Aluminium gates can be created to suit both contemporary and traditional driveways, and can also be adapted to suit both large and small spaces.

The design opportunities for aluminium gates are endless, so if you have something in mind let us know. They’re very versatile, so if you’re looking for something that remains in keeping with your property style, we can suggest ways in which your aluminium gates can be designed to fit in with the look of your home.

How long to have an aluminium driveway gate installed?

Timings. Technicalities. Tradesmanship.

This will depend on the scale of the project. However, at Capitan Gates we manage the process from start to finish, from measuring up to sourcing and installation. We’re confident this is the quickest and most effective way of installing your bespoke aluminium driveway gates.

Is my driveway too small for aluminium gates

We can create them in a variety of sizes and styles. If you’re short on space perhaps we can design a single gate or a space-saving sliding gate. The great thing about aluminium gates is that they can be designed to your exact measurements. We’re often asked if we can make existing gates electric.

Totally possible, but we’d need to come and take a look. We’ve completed lots of installations in Worcestershire and the West Midlands. So, if you’re thinking of adding a little extra security to your property – or you just want your house to look much nicer than your neighbour’s – give us a call or take a look at our gallery for more inspiration and ideas.
