Product Overview

Post Protector is a slide-on barrier system protecting in-ground posts from decay by eliminating soil-to-wood or concrete-to-wood contact. Decay occurs when the following conditions exist: Moisture saturation of wood fiber, Oxygen, Temperature 40-100°F. These conditions enable the soil dwelling micro-organisms, to colonize the post using the wood fiber as their food source. This consumption of the wood fiber is otherwise known as decay or rot. Post Protector allows for typical post-in-ground foundations without the decay causing micro-organisms ever having access to the post. The treatment in a pressure treated post is a pesticide used in an effort to make the wood fiber an undesirable food source for these micro-organisms. The treatment is effective initially but loses its effectiveness as the chemical migrates or leaches from the post over time. Post Protector eliminates this chemical migration and keeps the treatment with the post where it belongs. Common applications are decks, pergolas, fences, pole barns or any post-in-the-ground project. Available in 4 in. x 4 in., 4 in. x 6 in. and 6 in. x 6 in. in 42 in. and 60 in. lengths.

Customer Reviews

6 in. x 6 in. x 5 ft. Composite Fence Post Protector is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post protector We are using the post protector on 6 x 6 posts to brace our picnic shelter in a flood zone. We feel the added durability will better protect our investment. We are very pleased with the ease of use and the overall enhanced look to our shelter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for (I think) I discovered that my post supporting an addition was rotted. Also of concern was that it was heaving during the coldest part of the winter (Vermont location). My hope is that this will prevent the heaving as it can slide slightly if the ground raises with frost. It will also help prevent ground contact which lead to the rotting of the previous post (even though it was pressure treated). Installation was easy. Won't really know how effective it is preventing rot for many years but the heaving typically happens in January so I will know in a few months. If it works well I have a second post to work on next year.
