the simple fence post repair system

HOW IT WORKS

Why do timber fence posts break?

  • Timber posts decay where they come into contact with damp soil
  • Wooden fence posts therefore rot at ground level just above the concrete base, but are still solid below and above this damaged area
  • During windy weather the weakened posts will snap, causing the fence to lean
  • After one fence post breaks, the unsupported weight of that section of fencing will start to pull down the adjacent posts and eventually cause the whole fence to collapse

Post Buddy, the quick, easy fence post repair system

  • The unique Post Buddy fence post support system will fix your broken fence posts where they stand
  • The bottom half a metre (around 20 inches) of the Post Buddy stake anchors firmly into the below ground wood of the post, supported by the surrounding concrete base
  • Once the top of the Post Buddy is securely screwed to the fence post, it bridges the broken section and re-joins the two pieces of the snapped post by creating a solid link
  • Unlike other repairs, the Post Buddy system allows you to fix any size and shape concreted-in fence post in even difficult to reach places, without destroying your garden
