The Versai Residential Driveway Gate (shown above) is popular because of price and visual appeal. Very affordable around $2500. Automation and installation cost are extra.

The Versai Driveway Gate is available locally and can be picked up directly at my supplier, eliminating delivery time and cost.

Next; some terminology tips to help with communicating and decision making for a gate purchase.

Single Leaf / Panel straight top, flat or extended, ornamental driveway swing gates are available up to 14 ft. in width.

I should add, "12 ft and wider single leaf gates are available to purchase and have shipped to you, but - shipping cost are insane". I had a quote from one of my suppliers of $5000 just for shipping. Apparently shipping for anything over 12ft requires a private carrier with a hefty price.

The 5x14 pictured above was custom made locally by NGFC at our shop.

This 5x14 gate with 6x6 post, a 300 ft. electric service run to the gate from the house, a Kustos 120VAC electric single gate opener kit, exit sensor, surge suppressor, and keypad, installed - cost $8700.00.

A single panel gate is less expensive to add automation because only one motor, instead of two, is required.

WHERE TO BUY A GATE?

Below you will find links where you can purchase a driveway gate.

Home Depot and Lowes carry the Alegro line which are very nice well built gate kits.

Other more custom oriented companies are listed farther down the page.

Don't miss the Design Studio App where you can build your own custom gate and see changes in real time on your computer.

A great source for driveway entry gates are big box stores like LOWE'S and HOME DEPOT with over 100 different styles to choose from:

It is well worth having a look.. Here is a link to that information.

If you prefer to go directly to the source:

Here is the ALEKO website link.

We have installed many of the ALEKO driveway gates.  Aleko has a large varied selection and they are excellent, well made, solidly constructed, beautiful, high quality gates.

DRIVEWAY GATE MANUFACTURES:

In addition to the big box store selection, many companies make and ship driveway gates direct to your home.

We are happy to install and add automation to any gate you purchase.

If you need assistance with delivery, we can meet the truck to accept and forward the load.

"Remember, do not purchase gate opener equipment from these companies if they offer. The BFT brand of gate opener equipment that we install is far superior".

Aluminum or Steel ?

The two samples below show fencing that has been exposed to the elements for about 10 years. Aluminum shows only slight discoloration while Steel shows rust, oxidation, and peeling paint where the holes were punched through the rail, and where the post enters the ground.

Most driveway gates are welded at these junctions, then powder coated, so this isn't a concern with gates, only ornamental fence panels.

Aluminum is not as strong as steel, to compensate, aluminum gates are made using larger components. Aluminum is much lighter than steel - important for very large gates. 

Steel is stronger - Aluminum looks new longer - Aluminum cost more.

Both are great!
