the simple fence post repair system

HOW IT WORKS

Why do wood fence posts break?

  • Lumber posts usually decay in places where they come into contact with damp soil
  • This means that wood fence posts often rot at ground level, just above the concrete base, but are still solid below and above this damaged area
  • In windy weather, the weakened posts will snap, causing the fence to lean
  • After one fence post breaks, the unsupported weight of that section will start to pull down the adjacent fence posts, eventually causing the whole fence to collapse

Post Buddy, the quick, easy fence post repair system

  • The unique Post Buddy fence post repair kit will fix your broken fence posts right where they stand
  • The bottom 20 inches of the Post Buddy stake will anchor firmly into the ground below the 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 will bridge the broken section and re-join 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
