- Then simply drop your concrete repair spur down the whole flush against the fence post. Prop your fence up straight to the position you want to achieve. Now pre-drill and fix your concrete spur to your borken post using 150mm coach screws or preferred fixings.
- Now use 1 bag of corse postmix, pour into the hole and add water. You can then fill the rest of the hole with any spoil taken out of the ground previously.
- Tamper the ground firmly ensuring the post feels solid and let the concrete set. Normally hard within 10-15 minutes with most brands. Job’s now complete with as little work as possible.
