When it comes to repairing a fence, a concrete fence repair spur is an ideal solution. This type of spur is used to support an existing fence post, without the need to replace the entire fence. To ensure that your posts will stand strong for years to come, it's important to install them at the correct depth and use a high quality concrete mix. Here's how to do it. First, you must make room for the new spur.
We recommend digging a hole about half the depth of your selected repair spur next to the fence post that needs support. You may have to remove some of the existing concrete around the wooden fence post to get the repair spur flush with the wooden post. While you're at it, it's a good idea to give your fence and the newly exposed post a coat or two of wood preservative to help prevent any future deterioration. Challenge Fencing's concrete repair spurs can fix the problem for years to come and, with an ergonomic weather top, your steel reinforced spur won't lose any durability through rainy weather. We recommend that you hold the fence post straight with wooden braces while you mark the holes for the repair spur.
The posts should be buried at least 2 feet deep in the ground. For any fencing project, Lawsons strongly recommends that you include a gravel board, which can be either wood or concrete, as it will increase the durability of your fence panels and save you money in the long run. Installing a concrete fence repair spur is an easy and cost-effective way to shore up or repair an existing fence. With proper installation and maintenance, your posts will remain strong and secure for years to come.
