old Fence posts


Postby bones » Wed Apr 09, 2008 12:42 pm

Hello

I'm about to replace a fence however some of the old posts are set into a old concrete patio. Unfortunately the area isn't level otherwise i'd cut them off at the base, drill and bolt in post holders for the new posts.

Any advice?

Cheers

Dave

found it thanks.....

My problem is more of a horizontal one though. I'll try and explain.....

Post 1 is fine, post 2 is secured in a concrete patio but needs replacing, post 3 is fine.

The distance from post 1 to 3 is too far for the rails not to be supported in the middle at post 2. My problem is how do i replace post 2 as that involve smashing up the concrete patio.....

Does that make sense?

BONES,

IF YOU CUT OFF OLD POST 2.

ANY UNEVENESS IN THE CONCRETE SURFACE COULD BE SMOOTHED OUT WITH DIAMOND DISC IN ANGLE GRINDER.

THEN HAVE AN PRE-DRILLED EXTENSION PLATE WELDED OR BOLTED TO THE POST HOLDER BASE.

THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO FIX THE HOLDER TO CONCRETE IN A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT POSITION ON CONCRETE WHILST KEEPING THE POST POSITION IN THE SAME PLACE AS BEFORE.

OR

CHOP OUT AS MUCH OF THE OLD POST WOOD AS YOU CAN AND RAM CONCRETE INTO HOLE TO PROVIDE A BASE TO SIT AND DRILL HOLDER TO.

HOPE THIS WILL HELP.

CHEERS,

ALDA.
