It’s not often we get asked this question, but it does happen on occasion. Typical scenario: the customer is away while the posts are being installed and when they come home they see soil instead of concrete at the bottom of the posts.
It’s because of the way we install our posts.
The concrete is hidden for a reason
Sunlight has an adverse effect on the curing process of concrete. The solution to the problem: we cover the fresh piers with a thin layer of earth. It means a stronger fence. You can read more about it here.
So how do we know you used concrete?
We’d say “Because we’re a reputable company!” But if you want to see for yourself, dig out a little of the dirt around one of your posts. At about 6 inches down you’ll hit the concrete.
