Capitol Fence Shares 7 Most Important Reasons to Install an Automated Gate System

AUSTIN, Texas -- Capitol Fence, automatic gate installers in Austin, Texas since 1992, shares a few beneficial reasons for having automated gates installed on commercial and residential properties.

In the Austin, Texas area, we typically have customers for commercial and residential automatic gate installation call to:
* Increase security
* Control access to the property
* Improve curb appeal
* Raise property values
* Prevent theft or break-ins
* Keep loved ones safe from street traffic
* Prevent unwanted visitors or soliciting.

For both commercial and residential properties, some of these reasons overlap, and each property type has its own needs when considering an automatic gate entry installation.

Types of Automatic Gate Systems

"At Capitol Fence, we work with a variety of automatic gate systems in Austin, Texas and gate operators for both commercial and residential properties. Our main product line is through our partner, LiftMaster. We've installed single access and multi-access systems and solar powered with sliding and swing gates," said Mike Morrow, CEO Capitol Fence in Austin.

Here's some of the gate types we've worked with:
* Swing Gates
* Slide Gates
* Specialty Overhead Operators
* Barrier Gate Operators
* Motorized Lift Gates
* Manual Lift and Swing Gates

UL 325 Standards

As experienced automated gate installers in Austin, Texas, we meet or exceed the UL 325 standards. It's important for residential and commercial property owners to realize that many gate installers do not have proper credentials to install gates. In this case, while it is possible for a cheaper installation, it is also considered more hazardous because failure to meet UL 325 standards can result in a higher risk of electrocution to individuals.

"We've seen this issue arise in the local Austin, Texas community with contractors who are not licensed to install automated gates to properly meet UL 325 standards," adds Morrow.

Capitol Fence provides UL 325 certified staff to install and test our top-of-the-line automated gate systems to prevent hazards and ensure safety.

Capitol Fence Presents a Residential Fence Buying Guide and Tip Sheet

AUSTIN, Texas -- The type of fence that residential homeowners decide to use will not only play an essential role in the house's exterior design, but also provides one of the most basic human needs - protection. It is the need for security and privacy that drives most homeowners to buy a place of their own. As such, a fence that has been expertly constructed and installed gives a true sense of security in the home. But, which one to choose? Capitol Fence and Deck of Austin, Texas shares their tips for homeowners to buy the right fence between wrought iron, chain link, or wood.

How to Choose the Right Fence

Homeowners have a variety of fencing options that they could choose from and must consider a lot of things before selecting one. The first thing to consider is the use and main goal of the fence.

If the main goal is to simply keep pets and kids contained in the yard, this could require different fencing options as compared to the goal of increasing the property's value.

A busy and budget-oriented homeowner should also consider the costs of installation and maintenance. There may also be Homeowner's Association neighborhood restrictions that need to be considered. Capitol Fence specializes as an Austin residential fencing company experienced with helping homeowners with these considerations.

Consider These Fence Buying Tips for Residential Homes

1. Function

Function is the purpose for the fence and what it is intended for that will determine, the height, form, and other essential features of the fence. These intentions can be narrowed down to four basic categories. They include:

Privacy Fence

A privacy fence is intended to keep the neighbor's eyes from seeing what the homeowner is doing in the yard and home. It is available in different options, including pickets, tightly spaced boards, or framed panels that will prevent anyone from seeing the yard or home. These types of fences are typically over 6 feet tall to prevent most people from seeing over them.

Security Fence

If the homeowner's goal is to keep burglars out, this fence is a good choice. It is over 6ft tall and has pickets with spiky tops that will deter anyone from climbing over. Additionally, the outer face is smooth which ensures a climber will not have a foothold.

Decorative Fence

If the desire is to boost curb appeal, add a structural feature to the landscape, or just to establish property lines, this is the appropriate fencing option. Because it does not need to be obtrusive, just select one that is between two and four feet tall with spaced pickets and ornamental designs.

Safety Fence

If the goal is to enclose an area without having to change the view, then this option is to go with. The chain link fence is the most common type. It consists of durable galvanized metal mesh.

2. Maintenance

Once a homeowner understands the purpose of your fence, the next step is to decide what materials to use. Consider asking Capitol Fence, our Austin residential fence installation company for advice.

The most common materials utilized in fence construction include:

Wood

This is the most popular fencing option in the country due to the aesthetic appeal it adds to the home. Additionally, it is not that costly even though the price you pay is relative to the size and height of the fence. Wood fences can also last for 10 years to up to a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.

Bamboo

Bamboo fencing is becoming increasingly popular as a fencing option in the United States due to its exotic look. Additionally, it grows fast, making it an environmentally friendly fencing option.

Wrought Iron

The wrought-iron fence has been classically used for both security and decorative purposes. Even though wrought iron fences are beautiful and strong, they do require regular maintenance. The fence may need to be repainted every two or three years. Since they are typically custom-made, wrought iron fences are available in a wide variety of designs.

Chain Link & Wire

Even though this fencing option does not enhance the home's privacy, it does perform the functions it was meant for very well. These are good for homeowners that just need to keep pets of family members inside the yard. They are affordable to install while being durable and requiring very little maintenance.

Austin residential fencing using chain link can be supplemented using flowers, shrubbery, or vines on the outer side of the fence. Not only will this enhance the security of the home, but will also add to the homeowner's privacy. A little bit of creativity is all it takes to obstruct prying eyes.
