How long do concrete spurs last?

Concrete spurs last about 25 years compared to 10 to 15 years for treated spruce. If left untreated, spruce may need to be replaced in less than 5 years. Once they start to rot, they also begin to pose a safety risk if they are not replaced soon. I have a fence with 3 loose posts and they seem to have broken at the bottom as I can see a crack in one of them.

I'd like to fix the fence completely eventually, but I can't afford it right now. How good are concrete spurs? would you support my fence for at least 9 months? It started with an inclined panel and pole and now its 3 loose posts and 2 panels. The first one seemed to have been caused by the roots of our tree. I guess that has to go away, too.

Deciding on a new fence for your garden is not easy. Especially when it comes to weighing the pros and cons of wooden and concrete fence posts. You need to consider the practicality, aesthetics, short and long-term costs and sustainability of the fence post. But what if we told you that there is an alternative to wooden and concrete fence posts? An alternative that also surpasses both: DuraPost, a fence post system made of galvanized steel.

I have a feeling that it will be much easier to dig the concrete when the entire fence is gone, and because most of the posts are still reasonably well, I could use them to get the concrete out. Concrete tends to absorb moisture and wood expands when it gets wet, so these two factors combined will cause wood to break concrete. Normally, after putting the dry concrete and pole into the hole, you simply pour water over the dry mix. Metpost Wedge Grip Concrete Anchors come in two sizes that allow you to easily attach 75mm and 100mm poles.

If you are using wooden poles, add those concrete support spurs when you place them so you don't have to dig all that postret in 5 years when they rot at ground level and then you have to add concrete support spurs. DuraPost is stronger than concrete and wood fence posts and is guaranteed to last up to 25 years. Concrete spurs provide an economical alternative to replace wooden fence posts that have rotted at ground level. When repair concreting is embedded in the ground, the posts should be buried at least 2 feet deep into the ground.

We recommend holding the fence post straight with some wooden braces while marking the holes for the repair spur. I must say that it is a great job to get the old ones out if they have been well placed; some have taken me hours to dig as the compact earth acts as a good energy absorber for the demolition hammer and I have to extract the concrete inch by inch, digging the bases as I work my way down. A few pieces of wood will keep you upright, once the concrete is in, you don't want to move much anyway. I have already replaced one (after about 6 years of life, it is wet around here) and I could only remove the old concrete because by chance it had cracked in the middle and had a very irregular shape, so I could break it into pieces.

Use recessed concrete fence posts that accept a superelevation rail, have the post on the side of your neighbors, that way you will get the view of the concrete.
