Concrete spurs are an economical and effective solution for repairing or reinforcing wooden fence posts that have rotted at ground level. They are also suitable for use with new wooden poles, providing a longer lifespan for the fence. Installing concrete spurs requires digging a hole next to the pole, screwing the spur to the pole, and securing it with cement. This process is time-consuming and requires an extra pair of hands, but the result is a post that is resistant to moisture and rust and will strengthen the fence for a long period.
Concrete spurs are considerably cheaper than new posts and can cause aged or wind-damaged fences to have a new lease on life. They are not suitable for cowboys, but in some situations, they are the best answer if you have a feather edge fence with posts that are rotten. It is the cheapest option, rather than replacing the fence, and if done correctly, the fence should last a lifetime. The only reason people don't use them is because they take up some space and don't look as good as other options.
Concrete repair spurs can be used to repair broken or rotten fence posts or to screw poles or timber framing work onto the ground.

This process is time-consuming and requires an extra pair of hands to ensure that safe and efficient work is completed.
