Here we will show you how to repair a rotted post on your pole barn.
- Bottle Jack
- Pro Anchor
- Concrete Mix
Prepare AreaDig the soil away from the rotted post. Inspect the splash board for decay it may need to be replaced. Brace the rotted post by fastening a support beam under the truss and lifting with an adequate sized bottle jack. Make sure the brace and jack assembly are installed securely and safely.
Attach Pro AnchorSaw-off the rotted post approximately 3 inches below the top of the splash board. Remove the rotted section of the post. Clean out all the loose dirt from the bottom of the hole. Tamp the bottom of the hole to insure a solid base for pouring the concrete in step 3. Attach the Pro Anchor to the bottom of the post with the optional hardware provided.
Cement in PlaceThe splash board will provide the outside of the form. Form around the base of the Pro Anchor using plywood. The form should extend 2 to 3 inches beyond the post on three sides and flush with the splash board. Pour concrete to the base of the form and allow the concrete to firm up slightly. Next pour the concrete to the top of the form (base of the Pro Anchor). Rod and Tap the concrete to insure a completely consolidated fill under the bracket. Do not over vibrate or aggregate will settle. Remove the brace and jack assembly after approximately 12 hours. Do not bump or fully load the repaired post for 30 days.
