Question:
I am unable to set a post tight to a building due to an obstruction buried in the ground. How do I accomodate this?

Reply:
It is not abnormal to find a protruding foundation footer, drainage pipe, or other obstruction next to a house or building. There are many ways to go about setting this post in concrete and keeping the post tight to the building. We have resorted to many methods, including welding and building special posts for these applications. When fence posts are made of steel, aluminum, vinyl or other bendable materials, simply bend the post to miss the obstruction. You will need to dig the hole to the proper depth regardless. Usually the post is bent to miss the obstruction and into the alternate hole.
