Irish Well Suited Wood For Driveway Gates That We Use

We understand the importance of a beautiful and enduring entrance to your Irish home. That’s why we use only the finest woods specifically chosen to withstand Ireland’s unique climate.

For the ultimate in durability and timeless elegance, we recommend

Irish Oak: This classic hardwood boasts exceptional strength, natural beauty, and incredible resistance to rot and wear. An Irish oak driveway gate becomes a cherished part of your property, gracing your entrance for generations.

Redwood: This readily available wood offers impressive strength and a beautiful reddish hue. Redwood is often pre-treated for additional protection, ensuring your gates look stunning for years to come.

Western Red Cedar: This cost-effective choice provides good natural weather resistance with a warm reddish tone. To maintain its beauty, Western Red Cedar requires regular maintenance with a sealant. We’ll be happy to advise on the best options for your specific needs.

Treated Softwood: While not hardwoods, pressure-treated pine or spruce are affordable options offering decent durability with treatment. However, they may not match the strength or visual appeal of the hardwoods we’ve mentioned.

We invite you to visit our showroom or contact us to discuss your vision for the perfect driveway gate. Our team of experts will help you choose the ideal wood type to create an attractive and secure entrance that expresses your style and endures the elements.

Custom Styles for Decorative Driveway Gates

We understand a driveway gate is more than just an entrance, that’s why we’ll guide you through style options, wood selections, and hardware choices to create a lasting impression that represents your different tastes.

The Field Gate: This iconic design, featuring horizontal slats, exudes a rustic charm that complements rural settings perfectly.

The Boarded Gate: Vertical wooden boards create a sense of solidity and elegance, adapting beautifully to both traditional and contemporary homes.

Double Gates: Make a grand entrance with double swinging gates, ideal for wider driveways.

Spiked Top Gate: Incorporate elegance and security with pointed pickets adorning the top of the gate.

Wrought Iron Accents: Elevate your gate with decorative wrought iron elements, like scrolls or curves, for a touch of timeless elegance.

Panel Detailing: For those who appreciate the finer touches, raised panels or carved designs add visual interest and showcase expert craftsmanship.

The Sleek Slatted Gate: Horizontal slats with clean lines create a minimalist statement, ideal for contemporary homes.

The Board and Batten: This design combines vertical boards with horizontal battens for a simple yet sophisticated look.

Open Slat Design: Maintain privacy while allowing some visibility with an open slat design, adding a touch of contemporary flair to your entrance.

HAND CRAFTED DRIVEWAY GATES IN DUBLIN

If you’re looking to update or upgrade your property and driveway, then installing a driveway gate is the perfect way to do it. With just a simple addition to your exterior, you can add a touch of elegance to your property easily, all whilst upping your security.

When picking the right driveway gate for your property, you need to work out the exact space you have. If you don’t have a lot of space on your driveway, a sliding gate will work better. Or, if you do have a more spacious driveway, a swing gate can work brilliantly. Whatever the space of your driveway, you just need to make sure the gate is measured slightly wider than the driveway entrance for fitting and installation.

Bringing The Best Finishes for Wooden Driveway Gates

We recommend starting with naturally rot-resistant hardwoods like Irish Oak or Redwood. These woods stand strong against the elements, ensuring your gate remains a cherished part of your property for years to come.

Expertly Applied Protection:

Pressure Treatment: We offer pressure-treated wood options, where the wood is pre-infused with preservatives to resist moisture, insect damage, and decay.

Weatherproof Finishes: Our team uses only high-quality paints specifically designed for harsh Irish weather. We prioritize breathable options that allow the wood to release moisture naturally, preventing warping and cracking.

Long-Term Maintenance: To maintain the beauty and protection of your gate, we recommend reapplying stain or paint every few years (depending on the chosen product).

We go beyond the basics: Our expert craftsmen will guide you through the best finishing options for your chosen wood type and desired aesthetic.

Tailored Made Sizing According to Your Needs

When it comes to bespoke wooden driveway gates, precise sizing is before ensuring both functionality and aesthetic appeal. We have experience in tailoring wooden driveway gates to meet your exact needs, ensuring a perfect fit for your driveway.

Driveway Entrance Width: The first step in sizing your gate is measuring the clear space between your existing posts or the planned opening. This measurement is critical in determining the appropriate size for your new gate.

Gate Type (Single vs. Double): Consider whether a single or double gate best suits your needs. A single swinging gate requires half the width of double gates, making it a simpler option for narrower driveways. Double gates, on the other hand, provide a grander entrance and are ideal for wider spaces.

Desired Clearance: It’s essential to leave extra space on either side of the gate to ensure smooth operation and easy vehicle passage. Think about the widest vehicle that will need to access your driveway to avoid any issues.

Height Preference: While there are no strict height restrictions, typical residential driveway gates in Ireland range from 1.8 meters (6 feet) to 2.4 meters (8 feet). Taller gates may require additional support and could be more susceptible to wind.

Aesthetics and Functionality: Choose a height that balances well with your property and allows for easy passage of vehicles and pedestrians. The right height can enhance your property’s curb appeal while maintaining practicality.

Single Swing Gate: A single swing gate usually ranges from 2.5 meters (8 feet) to 5 meters (16 feet) in width. This option is great for straightforward installations and narrower driveways.

Double Swing Gates: Each gate in a double swing setup can range from 1.25 meters (4 feet) to 2.5 meters (8 feet) in width, providing a total entrance width of 2.5 meters (8 feet) to 5 meters (16 feet). This setup offers a grander look and more flexible access.
