Re: Sagging gates-help
It will depend on how the gate was built, whether or not it can be repaired or should be rebuilt. Can you take a pic and post it for us of the framing?
The most common mistake I see with gates is that there is either no cross brace or it is installed wrong. Framing can be an issue as well. The size of the gate(s ) will also affect how much sag they will have or develop over time.
The cross brace should extend from the top latch side to the bottom hinge side. Framing corners should be butted, not mitered. Hardware should be attached to the framing, not just the pickets.
