4 Things to Consider When Deciding Between a Pre-Made or Custom-Made Automated Iron Gate for Your Home

4-things-to-consider-when-deciding-between-a-pre-made-or-custom-made-automated-iron-gate-for-your-homeAn automatic iron gate is a great investment for your home, offering increased security, convenience, and a very stylish fixture to your home’s exterior. However, there are choices when it comes to buying an automated iron gate for your home, pre-made or custom-made.

Each has their advantages and disadvantages depending on your requirements so be sure to consider the following four things when deciding between a pre-made or custom-made automated iron gate for your home:

1. Cost

One of the main considerations to make between a pre-made and custom-made automated iron gate for your home is the price. As you might imagine, a pre-made design is generally much cheaper than a custom-made design, being mass produced that results in a lower cost to manufacture.
As a result, pre-made automatic iron gates are always going to be cheaper than a custom-made gate, so be sure to consider your budget for the gate when deciding between the two options.

2. Time

How urgently do you need the gate by? Some people have strict deadlines they want to stick to, which is understanding when considering the added security and convenience the gate provides the home with.

So, those that want to have their automated gate installed as soon as possible should probably decide on a pre-made product. These are typically ready for installation when purchased, while a custom-made gate could take several weeks to finish and install, so bear this in mind when choosing between each gate.

3. Style

Perhaps the biggest advantage of a custom-made automated iron gate is the fact you decide on the design.

This is a huge draw for many people, as automated gates are one of the main features outside your property, so if you want a specific design that fits within your current aesthetics, then a custom-made gate is always a better option.

You can get virtually any style you want from a custom-made design, with the iron capable of being wrought into countless designs to meet your tastes. Remember, an automated gate adds value to a property, so the more stylish the design the more value it is likely to add.

4. Versatility

A custom-made automated gate is always going to be a more versatile option as it can be designed to accommodate the precise needs of your property. Whether it’s the size, style, or color, a custom-made gate is always going to guarantee the best fit possible.

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
