A unique handmade gate will add personality to your house, and increase the external appeal of your property.

Essentially, this quality will help you to stand out in the property market.

The Value of Sustainable Wooden Gates in Today’s Property Market

It is no secret that we are becoming increasingly concerned with sustainability and using eco-friendly products to protect the future of the earth – and thankfully so! Aside from being great for the planet, using sustainable materials for your property will increase its market value. Although the trend of sustainable living has been growing since the early 1990’s, it is only very recently that we have seen people place much more importance on reducing their carbon footprint. Whether you are looking for ways to help you sell your property this year, or you are adding value with the future in mind, the ‘trend’ of sustainability is here to stay. Younger generations of millennials and Gen Z will especially place importance on living eco-friendly.

All of the timber from our handmade wooden gates at John Brights comes from the United Kingdom, and has been harvested from sustainable forests with a product called Tanalith E.

Creating a Memorable Entrance: How Wooden Gates Can Give Your Property The WOW Factor

When looking at a house, first impressions are everything for prospective buyers. What’s important to remember is that before considering taking a serious look at the inside of your property, the outside of your house needs to pass the ‘eye test’. It’s the initial reaction that dictates if people want to look at more of the property. A sure fire way of giving your property the WOW factor before a viewer has even stepped through the front door is with an attractive, high quality garden date.
