WHY IS MY FENCE LEANING?
A leaning fence is usually caused by improper installation, uneven load on either side, soil erosion or rotted posts.
HOW DO WE FIX A LEANING FENCE?
If the posts are broken, we have special tools to extract the old concrete footing and replace with a new post and footing at the exact location and reattach the existing fence panels. There is no need to replace the entire fence. This saves money, reduce waste to landfill, save resources and looks better than having new sections of fence mixed with old.
If the posts are still solid but just simply leaning, this usually caused by uneven pressure on one side of the fence. Over extended period of time the footing shift. We can make it straight again by removing soil around the concrete footing using hydro excavation and push the post straight again. The removed soil will be replaced with a mixture of gravel and soil then compact to increase stability. The straightened post footing will be much stronger than when it was first built, because the soil around the footing is now compacted with gravel. Soil around the original footing is almost never compacted when it was first built.
Why is our Footings so Superior.
Fence Renu was founded by a civil engineer who noticed his fence was heaved in some part, crooked in others and posts also started to rot, the fence was only about 10 years old. He also notice much of neighbours's fences are also doing the same. He was then set out to redesign the fence footing so that it would be more resistant frost heaving, much more difficult to tilt and most importantly wont rot. Up until now most fence fence are built by digging a hole in the ground, put the post down and fill with cement. No other consideration. That was kinda of alight if the ground is solid and the wood treatment was as good as it once was, but do to environment consideration, the highly toxic arsenic wood treatment once used is no longer permitted. A safer wood treatment now a day is no longer as effective at preventing rot. Isolate the wood from the soil is only way to prevent rot. A plastic post sleeve is used isolate the wood from the soil, as wider base at the bottom of the footing will make the post much more resistant to side pressure against the fence and also make it almost impossible for frost to heave the post.
