the simple fence post repair system


Why do wood fence posts break?

  • Wood posts usually decay in places where they are in contact with the damp ground or damaged by insect infestation
  • 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
  • During a storm, 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 fast, easy DIY repair

  • The unique Post Buddy fence post repair kit, consisting of 2 heavy duty metal repair stakes, will fix your broken fence post right where it stands
  • The bottom 20 inches of the Post Buddy stake will anchor 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 spans the broken section.  The post is whole and strong again for many years to come.
  • 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
