Fence post repairs, Storm Katie

We’ve been doing a lot of these post repairs and adding extra posts over the last week thanks to #stormkatie.

The majority of timber fence posts rot through and snap at the point where the post enters the ground because of incorrect previous installation.  When the concrete plug is not shaped correctly or sits below the soil surface, rain water collects around the timber and causes it to fail.  Hardman & Oakley Fencing ensure that the concrete plug is convex in shape to encourage rain water to run away from the timber post to prolong it’s lifespan.
