A couple of years ago, we had a wooden fence put in. Unfortunately, the bloke that did it did not fix the posts to the fence at the top and they have warped and it is getting worse. What is the best way to address it? The posts are cemented into tarmac at the bottom, so replacing them entirely is probably something we'd rather avoid.
Would we be able to put long screws through the top and into the fence and they'd eventually go back to the proper shape? Or do they need to have the top section cut off and replaced?
Hi straygoat, The timber used for your fence will be agricultural grade and would have been wet. With the dry weather extensive cracking along the grain and around knots is inevitable - it's normal. Regards S
