When it comes to repairing broken or rotten fence posts, or bolting posts or timber framing work above ground, a concrete repair spur is an effective and efficient solution. Also known as the “Godfather”, this product provides support for posts that have rotted at the base or have become loose in some way. It can also be used to provide additional strength to a fence panel. Concrete repair spurs are available in two sizes and are designed to be used with wooden posts.
To install, simply dig next to the leaning or damaged post, screw the spur to the post, brace to secure and fill with a bag of post binder. This method of repair saves considerable time and expense compared to replacing entire posts or even sections of the fence. Concrete repair spurs can be used on both existing and new fences. When installing on an existing fence, the spur is fixed in place with Postfix or a mixture of ballast and cement.
The timber fence post is then fixed to the repair spur using Coach bolts. On new fences, the concrete repair spur can be bolted to the existing post to reinforce it. Using a concrete repair spur is an excellent way to ensure that damage and weakness is stopped without having to replace the entire fence or post. It is also an effective way to provide additional strength and stability to a fence panel.
Overall, concrete repair spurs are an ideal solution for repairing broken or rotten fence posts, bolting posts or timber framing work above ground, and providing additional strength to a fence panel. They are easy to install and provide a cost-effective alternative to full replacement.
