Starting Gate... painted aluminum gates

We often think that a home’s first impression starts at the front door. But, the story actually begins from the road.  The landscaping, facades, driveways and, of course, the entrance gates make a powerful first impression. These hand painted starting gates are a prelude to the story of the home that lies ahead.



The Design Process:

Wooden gates were actually the first fences made by man. And, they have never lost their popularity. Wood, as a natural material, gives warmth … especially in a setting that wants to keep in touch with nature. But unlike wood, aluminum provides the added benefit of being lightweight and low maintenance.  Unlike steel, it will never rust.  This is why aluminum is the preferred material for decorative gates.  These custom aluminum gates have been hand painted with a wood grain technique to match the exterior of the home.

The concept of a gate may seem simple but it has many facets to consider. They offer an aesthetic purpose that should blend effortlessly with the theme of the surroundings while providing a level of security. A driveway gate suggests that an estate lies ahead. No matter where or how you live, your driveway’s starting gates make a lasting first impression.
