Installing a post onto concrete

Installing a fence post onto concrete is different from installing a fence post into soil. It’s also important to do it correctly if you want your fence to be upright and secure.

Watching this guide will show exactly what tools you need, and exactly what you need to do - from marking out the concrete to inserting the fence post.

Preparation & Planning

Make sure you measure and mark out the concrete correctly before drilling holes for the post support.
