Bamboo Gates

Since many years, bamboo is being used for various purposes, functional as well as aesthetic. However, recent environmental concerns have forced many people to choose bamboo as an alternative option to other less sustainable materials for construction of their homes. If you have built your dream home and are looking to install a sturdy gate, then bamboo should be a great option. They are not only decorative but also provide security to the property. Gates are the first thing that people notice when visiting your property. This is the reason you should always install a firm, high-quality and beautiful gate at the entrance of your property.

There are various kinds of gates available to install, but, in recent times, bamboo gates are most preferred because of the numerous benefits it gives.

Benefits Of Bamboo Gates

Easier to Install

Bamboo gates are easier to install and take less time compared to other types of gates. They come as individual poles, which can be easily installed by a professional or you can also get ready-made bamboo gates from a professional contractor.

Environment-Friendly

One of the most important aspects of installing bamboo gates is that they are environment-friendly. Wooden gates are strong and look beautiful but it takes many years for a tree to grow so that they can be harvested for a gate. But the bamboo is a type of grass and hence, grows very quickly. It is a sustainable material and does not
harm the environment even when you replace them after a few years.

Durable

They are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. It is a well-known fact that hurricanes and storms are common in Florida. In this case, a bamboo gate is an ideal option for the homeowners. Bamboo is also resistant to termites and other kinds of insects and hence, bamboo fencing and gates have a longer shelf-life.

Inexpensive

Bamboo gates are inexpensive unlike other types of gates such as wooden or chain link gates. The poles, rolls and other materials are very much affordable and do not burn a hole in your pocket. The total cost of the gate depends on the colour and style you choose and the height of the gate.

Variety

Bamboo gives you a lot of customization options because they are available in various colours, designs, styles and heights. You can choose a short gate to simply protect your garden or a taller one for ensuring that you have complete privacy and security. You can decide if you want a honey colour bamboo gate or a black colour gate, or you can also choose natural bamboo. Based on the design of your home, you can choose the bamboo gate for your property.

Security and Privacy

Bamboo gates offer lots of privacy to the homeowners. Whether you want to ensure security and privacy around your pool, garden or backyard, bamboo gates and fencing does the job perfectly. In a taller bamboo gate, all the bamboo poles are spaced together, thereby giving no chance to the outsider to view what is happening inside the property.

Installing bamboo gates is a valuable investment to your property as they not only give you privacy and security to your family members but also increase the property’s visual appeal. Bamboo gates will usually last longer as they are made and installed by professionals. People in Florida will be pleased to install bamboo gates because they can withstand high-velocity winds, thereby limiting the losses made by hurricanes and storms.

There are many reasons to add a fence on your property to create an increased sense of privacy, security for pets or childrens or to add to the look and curb value of your home.  

Fences can be expensive, so before you make that investment, you will want to consider the by-laws concerning fencing in your area and your budget. Although it may make financial sense to share the cost of a fence with your neighbor, before you actually proceed with the plan be sure to get the details of your agreement down in writing.  Circumstances change, people move, trees fall down, etc. You have no way of knowing what will happen in the future so make sure you have documented your plan.

The purpose of the fence will determine the style. There are a wide variety of materials available.

Wood.

A traditional favorite, wood offers a natural look and can be painted or stained to match other features on the property and suit your personal style. Cedar and redwood are two popular material choices.

The style of your wood fence will depend on its function. A picket fence is charming and welcoming. It allows people to see into property and show off beautiful gardens. A privacy fence, on the other hand will be constructed using at least six or seven foot boards. A semi private fence is not as tall, and often includes latticework at the top.

Metal.

Chain link fences are very reasonably priced and easy to install. They don’t provide much in the way of privacy and are often seen as a cheap option. If safety and security of pets is your goal, a chain link fence may be exactly what you need.

Wrought iron fences, combined with stone or brick, are classically elegant and stylish. A wrought iron fence also provides a sense of security and safety, especially if it is a tall with sharp points at the top.

PVC or Vinyl

Nearly maintenance free and available in a variety of colors and styles, PVC or vinyl fences are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners. They are more expensive than some other options, but they have ease of maintenance and durability on their side.
