Fence Gate
3 Attachment(s)
I went outside and found my fence gate is some how twisting. Its popping a hinge out of the wood. What could cause this? Would a no sag kit from a hardware store help any of just need to replace the entire gate. Any input is greatly appreciated.

wood seems to take a direction of its own over time and pressure treated wood pieces put together to make a fence get wacky/wonky twisted from the elements. I would try and adjust/reinforce the gate before getting a new one. straighten out the hinge and add reinforcement that makes the gate straighter. if it doesn't work out an easy gate system and a few new fence planks will get you a nice new gate...

You can fix it otherwise if you don't have any idea about carpentry make call call to a carpenter. Its not a big deal tighten some nuts and screws in the hinge uplifting that particular fence. You may need help of some another guy also.
