fence post patio problem


Hi I installed a new fence last summer and three of the posts are heaving. the major problem is that i plan on having a concrete patio install next to these posts and I am worried that they will heavy more and break the patio. Should I pull the posts and dig deeper and reset them or do you think i am worrying to much.

Today I started to try and pull them out and found that the contractor didn't use any concrete. I called him he is coming out to see it. I hope that not all the post are like this. This explains why just three have come up. If he doesn't show up I am going to pull them and reset them. Then I will call the better business burrow.

There are no rules that say the posts must be in concrete that I know of.
