Driveway Gate Types and Materials

A custom-made driveway gate does more than protect your property. It boosts your home’s curb appeal, cultivates an aesthetic, and expresses your excellent taste. From private homes to high-security commercial lots or gated residential communities, we work with you to find the features and materials that meet your needs and capture your vision.

Wooden Driveway Gates

With a heavy-duty steel core wrapped in select-grade mahogany, clear western red cedar, or sturdy Brazilian ipe, your wooden gate will be built for maximum durability.

Metal Driveway Gates

The classic choice for an elegant entrance way that melds strength and intricacy. With proper maintenance, gates forged of wrought-iron, aluminum, stainless steel, and bronze can last for decades.

Composite Driveway Gates

A heavy-duty steel frame wrapped in a durable, corrosion-resistant AZEK® brand solid composite material, these gates provide the design options of wood but with less upkeep.

Community Entrances

Gated residential communities have specialized needs, ranging from varying driveway widths for resident, guest, and exit gates to enhanced security features.

Commercial Gates

Incorporate high-tech security features to protect your commercial property. We’ve built systems for the FBI, the Secret Service, and the Dept. of Homeland Security.

Custom-Designed Gates

Add a unique touch to your property with a driveway gate that reflects your aesthetic. From bespoke designs to durable materials and comprehensive maintenance services, we provide everything needed to create distinctive, long-lasting gate solutions tailored to your preferences and property.


There is no maximum width for a driveway gate, though most range from 14 to 16 feet in width. Our professional installation technicians will work with you to determine the best size and location for your automated driveway gate. We have years of experience overcoming natural and topographic obstacles to make sure your gate is well-matched to the demands of your particular project and property.

Another consideration is gate type. These can range from swing gates, slide gates, barrier arms, and chop gates. For federal buildings, we also construct crash rated gates and bollards. Our team of professionals will assist you in selecting the right gate type for your property.

Wood, metal, and composite gates all offer unique features and advantages. Wood has an earthy, welcoming feel and allows for greater privacy. Metal is highly customizable, extremely durable, and ideal for showcasing your property. Composite gates are eco-friendly and require less upkeep.
