Can I use Postcrete as concrete?
Considering this, can I use Postcrete for foundations?
Because of the small area, we decided not to mix our own concrete, but to use Postcrete instead. Postecrete is a ready mixed concrete type mixture. It comes in bags that we could just tip into the prepared trench. Unlike normal concrete, you have to make sure that the Postcrete is level before you water it.
Furthermore, what's the difference between concrete and Postcrete? Hi all, If I want to set a new wooden post into the ground, what's the difference (FFS)? Concrete takes several hours or a day or two to set. Postcrete sets in a few minutes, several tens of seconds, even, so you don't have to support the post for nearly as long as you do with concrete.
Correspondingly, what can Postcrete be used for?
POSTCRETE may be used for fixing decking posts, rotary washing lines and small/medium sized gateposts (less than 1.0m width gate). POSTCRETE may not be used for general concreting, screeds, mortar, grout or render. If a specified compressive strength is required, POSTCRETE should not be used.
Do I have to use concrete for fence posts?
Concrete is the most secure material for setting fence posts, especially if you have sandy soil. Gravel may be okay with dense, clay-heavy soil, but in looser soil, concrete is the only thing that will truly keep your fence posts stuck in place.
