Wondering if anyone has experience drilling holes for the horizontal rails to be hung. Does the polymer crack when hole drilled, does it hold up?
Asked by: Bubz11
Yes you can, when I screw the rail in I put calking around the screw hole to seal it, so the water won't get into the wood at the screw hole.

Put in approximately 300 posts...fence man did not get caps on before we have had rain day after day after day....:(. What is the best way to handle this situation, I’m sure they have water inside...should we wait to put caps on after they dry or should we diagonally drill hole to let water out and dry Thanks for any advice Pam
Asked by: Missy
I would place the caps on right away to prevent more rain water to get in. The water that is already in will slowly filter down to the ground. At best, you will be limiting the quantity of water that may negatively affect the posts.

I need true 4x4 dimensional lumber (not 3.5 x 3.5). Is this a TRUE 4x4 post?
Asked by: Dennis
No this is not a true 4x4 Only one side measured 4" 2 sides 3.5" and one side 3 3/4 " I only needed the one post on a porch and I will say it is very pretty. I actually went outside to measure it to give you precise measurement. Hope this helps.

Will the coating on these posts be cracked or damaged if they are pounded into the ground?

Asked by: yesihavenobananas
It is very possible the coating would be damaged when pounding them into the ground if they hit a rock or anything solid. The polymer coating is soft so we rented a post hole digger and then set them in concrete.

4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 DF Polymer Coated Western Red Cedar Tone Fence Post is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! Love It! I was considering buying post sleeves and new posts for my fence. The sleeves were $25 each which do not include the actual posts which were $11 each bring the total to about $36 per post if I went that route . I came across the Woodguard material and decided to give it a shot since it only cost $26 per post and the reviews were good. I saved a little over $200 for my small project and I am very pleased with my decision. The packaging was stout and everything arrived undamaged. I needed a few of the posts to be shorter but cutting them down was a breeze. I removed the top cap and trimmed down the posts with a standard circular saw and put the removable top caps back on. It cut and installed just like wood and required no special tools. I love my fence now! It looks great. I wish they offered pickets too. I would love for my entire fence to be made from this material. I recommend this product and will definitely be using it for my next project!

I used 4 of these posts to replace existing pressure treated posts that had rotted out. Very solid and the coating was very tough.

However the 2x4 had a “dime -sized 1/2 inch depression on one side. I hope others we order will not be defective. Home Depot should have samples of this product in stores.

I purchased these coated posts to use for the framing of a deck that was being installed approx 6" above ground. I chose polymer coated thinking they would be more durable and not rot as easily. I was less than impressed with the coating and as i cut the posts, the coating started to peel back. Not quite what I expected. It would have been cheaper to just buy some FlexSeal and coat the bottom of the posts that were going to be buried below ground. Save yourself some money and find a different solution.

Originally when I built a wall, along the side of our deck, I used 4x4 treated wood and over time the posts twisted and bent. Being OCD this bugged the heck out of me. Also the exposed wood needed painting every couple of years especially the 2x6 board along the top. After extensive research I found this item and I’m sure glad I took the opportunity to use it. My carpenter liked working with it too. No more painting either.
