Differences Between Metal Driveway Gates
The are several noteworthy differences between steel and aluminum driveway gates. Being informed about the differences will help you make the best choice for your entrance gate.
Steel Driveway Gates
Steel is the most common type of metal driveway gate. Steel is easier to work with than aluminum, and cheaper to purchase. It’s also heavier than aluminum and tends to rust over time.
Aluminum Driveway Gates
Aluminum is the 2nd most common sort of metal driveway gate. It is lightweight but more difficult to work with than steel. It must be cleaned thoroughly prior to welding for best quality.
Other Metal Driveway Gates
Copper is prohibitively expensive. One option is to put a beautiful copper powder coat finish over steel:
