Product Overview

  • In-Ground Post Decay Protection for posts in soil or concrete
  • Simple installation and Post Longevity increased by 250%
  • Pole Barn, Deck, Fence, Pergola, Mailbox, any post-foundation job
For 18 years, Post Protector has provided simple, slide-on barrier protection for in-ground posts. It works in conjunction with the chemical preservative as an important additional layer of protection against soil-dwelling & atmospheric decay fungi & insect infestation. Its first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is one of (3) conditions needed for decay to occur. The conditions: (1) Moisture, (2) Oxygen & (3) Suitable temperature. These conditions enable the soil-dwelling or atmospheric decay fungi, as well as termites & other subterranean insects, to feed on the wood fiber. So the Decay/Degradation of ground-contact wood is not CAUSED by moisture but by the action of wood destroying organisms feeding on the wood. The chemical preservatives protection strategy is to poison the wood fiber, rendering it an unsuitable food source for the wood destroying organisms. The downside to that approach is that all chemical preservatives eventually lose resistance to decay and insect infestation. Post Protector becomes the perfect complement to the pressure treated (or cedar) post by simply providing a physical "barrier" isolating the post so the wood-destroying organisms have NO access to the post.
  • Simple slide-on installation
  • Perfect for both Pro & DIY
  • Speed, affordability, and strength of a direct burial post while wood destroying organism have no post access
  • HDPE lightweight, flexible and strong; 449 years of in-ground service life
  • Integral uplift protection feature with Uplift protection hardware/installation instruction pack
  • Integral drainage feature
  • Minimizes chemical leaching into the environment
  • Attractive appearance-rich clay tone color with wood grain texture

  • Can also be used to create a removable in-ground post
  • Toll free tech-line for expert product information/installation assistance

6 in. x 6 in. x 60 in. In-Ground Post Decay Protection is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.

I was interested in buying the posts not post protectors. I don't remember whether or not the heading said "protector". When they arrived they were definitely not posts so I asked to have them returned.

These post protectors far exceed any concrete, foam, or other method of post hole fill. Just drill out weep holes, slide on and attach to post with included lag bolts and set in hole; preferably on top of a footer pad.

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.

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.

Current wood treatment isn't a long term solution for below grade applications, so these sleeves solve that problem. I put them on my posts and then drilled a 1/2" hole and inserted a 1' long piece of rebar for uplift protection, then caulked the hole. Buried in concrete.
