Opening and shutting gates may become a tedious chore if they begin to droop and drag instead of swinging smoothly. The posts for your gates need to be strong and dug deeply, and a reliable brace should be set up alongside the gate post. Take care properly before you need to call sagging gate repair experts.
Importance of taking care of sagging gate
However, if the posts aren’t set in concrete, even the most secure fastenings will eventually “give.” A post will not be able to adequately hold a gate’s weight if the ground is too wet or too unstable. When this occurs, the posts may “heave” from the cold, making it difficult for the gate to open or close properly. When the ground thaws in the spring, posts might “give,” which can cause a heavy gate to sag and eventually drag on the ground.
- The post must be fixed, replaced, or re-set in concrete, all of which are undesirable options. However, in order to guarantee that the concrete will properly cure, this may need to be put off until spring in some parts of the country.
- Tightening the bolts that hold the gate to the post may be all that’s needed to fine-tune some types of gates. However, you may need to re-drill the post for some gates if you want to relocate the gate bolts.
- Properly mounting the gate posts and situating a support underneath the centre of the gate, which is the place where the two gates meet, will assist prevent drooping in a double gate used to provide machines access to a field. This gimmick, of course, must be temporary in order to be destroyed before the arrival of the sagging gate repair heavy equipment in the field.
People choosing to climb over the gate rather than unlock the latch is a major factor in the sagging of the gate, as is clear. If you own a farm or stable, it’s important to remind your staff and clients that going over gates (or fences) might damage them and require costly maintenance down the road. Consult with sagging gate repair professionals for the better understanding.
