Open Sesame: The Many Benefits of an Electric Gate for Your Driveway

Automatic Gate

Industrial gates aren’t just for large mansions, gated communities, or fancy government facilities. Anyone can enjoy an electric gate, but they’re more than aesthetically pleasing additions to your property. Electric gates come with plenty of perks — some you may know and some that may not have crossed your mind. Together, these benefits can reimagine the comfort you feel at home in a way you didn’t know you needed. 

Enhance the Security Around Your Home

The biggest benefits of gates are the added safety and security benefits. Installing an automatic gate instantly gives you coverage that other sources can’t match. They can prevent animals and unwanted guests and protect against accidents if your home is located near a busy intersection. Homeowners can also install state-of-the-art automatic gate openers and home security cameras to add protection for any situation.

Keep More of Your Property Private

Are cars constantly turning into and out of your yard? Are your packages frequently getting stolen, or are there people patrolling your front yard with no barrier of entry? An automatic driveway gate is a great way to stop that from occurring. The privacy it adds will scare away nosy neighbors and force cars on the road to find a new route to their destinations. If you’re a homeowner that doesn’t feel comfortable having their home or driveway exposed, an automatic gate can allow you to host events or customize your home without being seen by the outside.

There Are Plenty of Styles to Improve Curb Appeal

Even if you get a plain-looking automatic gate, you’ll make a big difference to the look of your property. But there are a variety of styles to choose from that can add a new aesthetic or complement an already beautiful-looking home and yard. Swing and sliding gates are two of the most popular options, but you can also get curving sliding gates or wooden, aluminum, and steel gates. No matter which one you choose, neighbors and people driving by are guaranteed to take note of just how effective your gate is. 

Insurance Companies Will Appreciate the Added Protection

Insurance companies will take note of the added value of your automatic gate. This is especially true if you live near dangerous roadways or your neighborhood is plagued with safety issues. Adding that level of security to your property makes automatic gates a cost-effective choice, leading to reduced insurance premiums and a variety of other benefits depending on the insurance company you choose.

Don’t Forget the Convenience Factor

If you work long shifts into the night or if you’re tired of spending time opening up a gate in the middle of a rainstorm, automatic gates are the answer. You can use plenty of different methods to open them up. Choose from keypads, remote controllers, card readers, sensors, and more! Customize it to your needs and enjoy the convenience of a driveway gate installation.

Your Gate Company Can Help You With More Than Just an Installation

Another benefit to getting an electric gate is enjoying the expertise of a qualified gate company. Not only does this help you with your installations, but it can also help with various other situations. A qualified company like Overhead Door Arizona will have knowledge of exactly how the door works and can identify any faults or major problems that plague the door. Companies like ours make maintenance services a breeze and have other accessories that make having a gate feel like a dream come true.

Quality gate companies may seem few and far between, but for residents with Overhead Door Arizona in their backyards, they won’t have to look far. Our automatic gate installations in Phoenix use quality products like LiftMaster RSL 12 UL openers and other products that ensure a long-lasting and fully operational gate.

Great Guys and Great Work

The tech was on time to the second I think, very professional and super nice Chris – nice work my friend!   The opener they selected for me is a terrific and great price, Wifi and the myQ app are great as well.

They sent someone out right away at 4:30pm on a Monday. Tre was our technician and did an amazing job getting our door back to working condition without breaking the bank. I will always suggest them to anyone who asks.

For the past few months, my garage door would not shut. It will close halfway get stuck and the motor would bring it back. Not to mention it sounded like a blender filled with nails while closing and opening. Finally decided to get it to check out and these guys were the first to respond. Had an appointment sent within 15 min. A technician named Jimmy came over the next day and got it all done. My garage door never sounded so silent and go down as smooth once new parts were added. Definitely will be recommending these guys!

This company is very responsive, contacted them on a Sunday night and they replied right away.  Then set an appointment at a time convenient for me.

Very polite and easy to work with.  Travis, the owner, is hands-on.

I had an extremely positive experience with this company, and I have to praise Michelle in the front office for her patience and customer service attitude.

When my 20-year-old Liftmaster garage door opener began to fail, I spent a ridiculous amount of time researching new openers and my options.  The logicboard wasn’t working – so the unit still moved the door up and down, but responded only to the wall switch and not the remote. While that was inconvenient, I had time to look around.

After months of exploration and repeated estimates, when I finally decided on a model, they didn’t have it in stock. Michelle quickly located one and offered an appointment the next business day.

The technician who showed up, Zach, was relatively new, but assured me that he had great training and mentoring by the company.  And so far, I am very pleased with the work.  I thought he was polite, clean, well-skilled, and astute — and at my request, also diagnosed and repaired a squealing in the door.  The door is quiet and the alignment is good.

I would definitely have them back for any additional work! (which I hope doesn’t happen soon!)

When it was time to change the garage door, we called these pros for help, and they responded to our needs immediately.

The team arrived exactly when they said they would, and explained everything they were going to do, along with different options for me. It took them an hour to complete the job, and it was amazing! Very precise and clean!!!

Will use them again for all my garage door needs!

Honestly, I haven’t had such great customer service in years. From the first phone call to the minute they left I never felt pressured, a hard sell or that I was being sold something I didn’t “need”. So informative and honest. So refreshing!! The background checks their employees for safety. They text/email your appointment time, when the technician is on the way, and the estimate. Makes the whole experience a positive one. Thanks, Travis, Chris, and Cody. Keep up the great work. You prove that great customer care is still important.

We were so thrilled with the excellent quality of service and quick response we received yesterday. Jimmy Tafoya was quick, honest, and pleasant. The door went off the rails so we called on a Saturday afternoon for emergency service. He fixed the problem in 2 hours. We thought we would need a new door it was so screwed up but he fixed it very well at a lower cost. We are very thankful.

My hinge was bent. Jay came out the same day. Repaired and realigned. Very efficient, knowledgeable, and did a great job. Would definitely call again for garage needs.

I wish this company provided other random services because I would use them for anything!

I sent a request for a quote via Yelp at 3:56 pm and received a reply from Travis at 3:57 pm. He said he could have a technician to my home between 4-6 pm That Day! Like within the next 2 hours. Before I committed, though I had to ask a few questions. First, could the technician please wear a mask and gloves because we have high-risk people in our home during Covid? Answer – no problem at all. Second, could you provide a ballpark estimate based on my description of the problem? Yup!

I then received a text with my appointment confirmation, and 20 minutes before the technician arrived, I received a lengthy text with a photo, background check information, and instructions on what to expect when he arrives. Then Jay called personally to let me know to expect him.

When he arrived, he looked at the job, gave me an estimate, and went to work. 20 min later, he was done, with no extra hidden fees. He accepted my credit card verbally so that we didn’t have any close contact.

The garage works perfectly!
