How to Fix a Mailbox


Thanks to this crazy winter we had, a lot of mailboxes didn’t make it through in one piece thanks to the snow and plows.  In this weeks episode we will show you how to fix a mailbox.  While ours was hit by a plow, it wasn’t a total loss.  Since the post was still in tact, we were able to purchase some additional wood to repair the broken arm.

This should only take about an hour or two to fix a mailbox and is much easier than having to dig out and replace the entire mailbox post.  We recommend you use pressure treated wood whenever you are building outdoors.  For this you will need:

  • Miter Saw
  • Circular Saw
  • A Drill
  • Ratchet
  • Bits
  • Paint (for decoration)
  • 4x4x6 pressure treated wood post
  • Mounting bracket plate – or cut a piece of wood for mailbox

The one good thing that came from this winter was we now own a beautiful Arien’s 24″ snow blower that can throw all the snow I have into my neighbors yard.

Personal Note: We were able to connect with the plow company which did temporarily fix the box and offered to replace it completely in the spring time.  We had decided to create a fun how to video in stead which is the reason why we repaired it ourselves.
