How to repair leaning bent fence post-DIY



what's up YouTube I got a politician fence here yes crooked as Hale so what we're gonna try to do is place these post that it look like bananas I've already got one replaced and every one of these posts that have a little orange ribbon they were just not level in this cause defense just bow back and forth you can see down the line how awful it looks I don't know if I'm gonna do all of them maybe just the worst offenders and just see what the fence looks like because I got a total one two three four six seven eight that need to be done the way I'm pointing is East Bahamas west north and then South is behind me so this fence gets direct sunlight year-round not today it's overcast so I've talked to several fence guys and they said and agree with me that the fence is just getting warped from the immense heat and sunlight that it bears and endures every day so let me get a little video show you if you do have a fence take a poster really out of whack you can just replace each post and hopefully get it back in shape all right what I've done is starting to dig around the hole here to separate the dirt from the concrete taking a sledgehammer and I've separated the two by fours from the post so you just kind of have to deal with those nails till you can get your post wiggled out the way and then hammer them through I'll show you that here in a second all right I've got post we're gonna loose you can hear me huffing and puffing it's nice cool day so yesterday this soil is sandy that's really not that hard you have clay sore or rocky soil it could be fun but I take my sledgehammer and I beat on each side of the post and it that shock wave loosens it from the concrete and it does miracles so we're ear protection because it makes a loud pop just beat on it several times jiggle it beat on it and jiggle it you know work itself loose okay I got my new post in and the first post I did I ran a string on top second post I did I didn't run a string thinking hmmm I don't need to do that well mistake I put the string on top of the dog-eared boards that I'm gonna try to line up here but this post that I put in is about that far this way so it's not in line with my other square post not that post with the ribbon but this post right here when I ran a string on top of it down to the third post the new post was that way so don't do what I did run a string on top of you're a straight post and try to get it in the center line now I'm kind of in a little bit that way so hopefully it won't be too noticeable but you know this Vince I'm not trying to get it perfect I'm just trying to get it where it looks decent from 20 feet away hey guys alright back again got my post installed not my planks off the back now I'm patching or connecting to our force to my post now if you notice there's a gap here not too bad some of my boards I know are gonna be really bad so what I've done get this metal bracket here from one of your big box stores they're about 87 cents and that will kind of fill in the gap and if the gap is really big in here just drill your hole run your screw to it to your post if you don't have enough meat right here to attach to your post so I think I'm gonna put these on here just for safekeeping I'll take a picture I'll show you a video of things and I'm thinking that will just help me give me some support so if these 2×4 start stretching apart they're not gonna be able to because you can already see how they shrunk and they might have already done all their shrinking but like I said I know I got another two by fours word that I just can't get the meat onto the pole so I'm thinking this wasn't this'll work – we'll see time to attach the dog-ear board alright I got my post you got my dog-eared boards in panels I got one new board that one right there I have had for a while actually I've had all three of those but that one right there warped and installed it but I don't have to replace it because it's just twisted at the top in the bottom but got a new post in play some of the dog-eared boards and like I said I got a few more I'm gonna replace and I might not replace them all but I'm getting there it looks a lot better cuz I fixed the poof's that were the bent the most that looked like bananas and you can see like that one's really bent too but the one our just replaced was bent even worse than that so if I replace maybe that one and two more down there I might be good but we'll see I'll keep you informed that's how you replace that post that's bent secure it up replace your dog panels dog ear boards and then I'm gonna stain them once they dry out you
