- wrought iron
Iron and wrought iron gates are elegant and sturdy.
Wooden gates give off a warm and expensive appeal. They are heavy and draw attention more to the gate (whereas other materials may accent yet draw the eye to the house). There are bamboo, cedar, mahogany, and pine gates – all great options if you choose a wooden gate.
Metal gates include aluminum which is light weight and eco-friendly or steel gates which are strong and can provide a wrought iron look at a lower price. Stainless steel provides a chic and modern look.
Bronze, brass, or copper gates provide an luxurious and rich aesthetic.
Glass gates are quite versatile and modern; you can choose different colored panels, making them opaque, frosted, or clear.
Vinyl (composite/PVC) gates can be made to resemble wood. They can be made in many colors and the material is low maintenance.
