How to Prevent Wooden Driveway Gates from Drooping

11/04/2013 Back To Blog

Today's driveway gate openers come in different variants, and are made from a wide array of materials. They too can experience a wide assortment of technical glitches and problems, and one of these issues includes sagging or drooping.  If your home has wooden gates, they too will experience some drooping, because of their weight and size, and this will be likely due to the shifting of its posts, as well as the loosening of its hinges. Here's how to perform proper driveway gate repair for drooping wooden gates.

What Causes These to Droop?

Wooden gates generally have a gate wheel, which is mounted at the bottom, and this evenly distributes the load over the whole structure, and helps in reducing stress on the post and hinges. To fully determine its drooping, open it wide so you can access both sides, and place a carpenter's level on the upper rail, to check out if the structure is truly level.

How to Repair

To fix driveway gates, and prevent further drooping, the first step would be to carefully slide the outcropping portion of its wheel assembly, onto the bottom, and mark the positions of the screw holes using a pencil and removing the wheel afterward. 

Next, drill a horizontal pilot hole on each of the screw hole marks, reposition the overhang, and align the screw holes with the pilot holes. Use a drill and driving bit to carefully screw the wheel assembly towards it, and remove the lumber or wooden supports next.

If the structure is still drooping after you've completed this process, then a maintenance service may be required.
