To complement ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector provides ‘barrier’ protection to isolate the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms attacking the grade line, have NO post access.

Still utilizing a direct-burial post?

Simply add Post Protector for an ‘obvious’ longevity improvement your customers will embrace.

Using a more ‘complex’ method to eliminate soil-to-wood contact?

Switch to Post Protector as an ‘obvious’ cost savings your customers will embrace.

Luzerne County, PA: Pro, Zack Zawada, President of Zawada Enterprises, Tamaqua, PA, shared these pics as construction begins on a 40′ x 60′ x 12′ Man Cave / ‘Toy’ Storage facility providing 2400 sq. ft. for ‘toy’ storage and attic trusses making a healthy 960 sq. ft. for the man cave.

Sensibly, the 3 ply 2″ x 6″ foundation posts are equipped with Post Protector to separate the wood from ground-contact and the severe decay hazards that lie within.

“We recommend Post Protector because the longevity of a wood post is dramatically improved when it’s void of soil/concrete contact. This particular customer didn’t let me finish explaining why we endorse the use of Post Protector when he interrupted me to say, “I get it… I want them.”

This demonstrates how the typical post frame consumer has underlying post longevity concern and when they learn that this simple, effective, additional protection/foundation improvement exists, they quickly welcome it.”

Post Protector isolates the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access. Contact Zack, zawadaenterprises.com or 570-386-3200

6x6 Deck Posts with Post Protector Post Sleeve Decay Protection

Newark, DE: Thanks to the pros @ FSBD for sharing this pic as they start yet another deck/screened-in porch project with Post Protector.

Many have the prudent desire to eliminate direct soil/concrete-to-wood contact of the ‘traditional’ post-foundation & opt for a ‘pier & bracket.’

This keeps the framing out of ground contact but adds cost/complication, reducing the ‘value’ & ‘simplicity’ of the post-foundation.

Post Protector is the perfect option for both the Pro & DIYer.

It, too, eliminates soil/concrete-contact AND preserves the Simplicity, Affordability, Strength, & Value of a traditional, direct-burial, post foundation!

To complement ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector provides ‘barrier’ protection to isolate the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms attacking the grade line, have NO post access.

Toronto, Ontario: www.homedepot.ca Jason Glasbergen, owner of the J. Dutch Company, a Landscape & Carpentry Contractor, sent pics/description of a recent project.

He specializes in ‘backyard beautification,’ building gazebos, pergolas, & zen gardens, to name a few.

While planing this project with the homeowner’s landscape designer, JG had a thought.

“There must be a product to improve the performance of a direct-burial post foundation. Making it so I don’t have to rely on a 1970’s approach of throwing the post in the ground & hoping for the best or the labor-intensive, pricey ‘on-slab’ or ‘pier & bracket’ methods.

My Google search lead me to Post Protector offered by Home Depot.

This decay protection immediately made sense to me and after using it for the first time on this project, Post Protector is now my ‘go-to’ foundation method for fence, pergola, & gazebo projects. It’s represents the simplest, strongest, & longest lasting post-foundation system.” 

To complement ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector provides ‘barrier’ protection to isolate the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms attacking at the grade line, have NO post access.

Fence Post Decay LowesLowes Post Protector 6x6 fence postsLowes Post Protector 6x6x42 fence post

Snohomish County, WA: HOA President, SL, was not happy when he learned that their fence posts had failed miserably.

“I could not believe the horrible condition of the posts. There was nothing left of them!”

That said, the 15 yr. old, 900′ fence needed to be replaced.

Fortunately, SL, visited Lowe’s of Mill Creek/1573 where a knowledgeable Customer Service Associate, sensibly suggested that the (115) new pressure treated fence posts be void of soil-contact, & all decay hazards that lie within, courtesy of the 6″ x 6″ x 42″ Post Protector.

SL sent pics of the handsome, new, cedar/treated fence featuring posts prudently safeguarded by the Post Protector ‘Barrier’ system!

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, microorganisms/insects can find a way to bypass ‘chemical’ protection causing post failure. To complement ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector provides ‘barrier’ protection to isolate the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access.

A recent scientific study shows that ‘barrier’ protection increases post longevity performance by 250%+.

Philadelphia, PA: There’s no shortage of ‘cool’ in Philly’s Fishtown neighborhood.

Jack H had that in mind when called to a historic Fishtown home to design one of his custom, mortise & tenon, Sapele Mahogany, Conservatory additions.

While discussing the layout/design with the homeowner, Jack had an idea that he knew would complete the visual and, appropriately, add another layer of ‘cool’ to the project.

Replace the existing fence with one to match the conservatory.

The Sapele Mahogony fence has a premium translucent satin finish & includes (30) custom ‘black-out’ 6″x 6″ pressure treated posts prudently wrapped in 6″x 6″x 42″ Post Protectors for MAXIMUM decay protection.

“When removing the existing fence we found the posts were in bad shape. This was no surprise as chemical protection does have limitations. Searching for a better way to set the new posts, I found Post Protector on www.homedepot.com. Post Protector isolates an in-ground post so decay hazards have no access and is precisely the additional protection essential for maximum longevity.”

Fence, Deck, Pole Barn, Mailbox or any post-foundation project!

ERIC MOORE Decayed Fence Post 700x800 (2)

Decay is always misunderstood as most believe moisture is the ’cause’ of decay.

Moisture is not the ’cause’ but rather 1 of 3 conditions (moisture, oxygen & temperature) needed for decay to occur.

When these ‘conditions’ exist, soil-dwelling microorganisms colonize the post to use the wood fiber as their food source.

Decay is the action of microorganisms feeding on wood fiber.

Supporting this, the central role of ‘chemical’ preservative is to ‘envenom’ the wood fiber, making it an undesirable food source for the microorganisms.

Although chemical preservatives deliver solid protection,

#1 Checks (splits/cracks in the post) expose non-treated wood

#2 Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention &

#3 Chemical Leaching/Migration, can lead to fungal attack/failure.

Post Protector adds ‘barrier’ protection isolating the post so that soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.

Here’s what a leading preservative manufacturer, foremost expert in wood protection, says about adding ‘barrier’ protection to complement ‘chemical’ protection:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

Wake County, NC: Customer pics, Pro Built, (12) 6x6x60″ Post Protectors purchased @ http://www.homedepot.com/

This pretty 17′ x 25′ screened porch addition, sits on a prudently prepared, pressure treated post-foundation.

The 6″ x 6″ feature Post Protector’s ‘barrier’ system, isolating the post & providing a sensible, additional layer of decay/insect protection.

“The added post decay protection was far too logical, not to mention the easy install & affordability, to pass up.”

Why add ‘Barrier’ protection?

Here’s what preservative manufacturers, foremost experts in decay protection, have to say about adding ‘barrier’ protection to complement ‘chemical’ protection by eliminating ground-contact:

* “Barrier protection prevents the invasion of wood-destroying soil fungi and termites.”

* “The ‘ground-contact’ decay hazard is severe because of the plethora of soil inhabiting, wood feeding microorganisms. ‘Barrier’ protection isolates the post, excluding ‘ground-contact’ and the decay hazards that lie within.”

* “Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

* “Barrier protection increases post longevity performance by 250%+.

#worksmarter #losegroundcontact #maximizepostlife #problemsolved

Crawford County, WI: Experienced DIY guy, MJ, snapped these great pics while setting (26) foundation posts for a 30′ x 30′, raised floor, lakeside home.

He purchased (26) 6x6x60″ Post Protectors through www.homedepot.com & called from the job site with an installation question.

After reviewing the straightforward installation procedure, I asked, “What made you decide on a direct-burial, post-foundation?”

He replied, “Your product.”

“The direct-burial, post-foundation was attractive because it’s simple, fast, affordable, & strong but, like many, I was apprehensive about post failure down the road.

By adding Post Protector to my pt posts, longevity was no longer a concern making the traditional post-foundation a smart choice and an extraordinary value.

Great product!”

Post Protector provides ‘barrier’ protection to isolate the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access.

That said & no surprise, a recent scientific study shows that ‘barrier’ protection increases post longevity performance by 250%+.

Schuylkill County, PA: Pro, Zack Zawada, President of Zawada Enterprises, Tamaqua, PA, shared these pics as construction begins on a 55′ x 72′ x 12′ produce market w / 20′ x 20′ loading dock.

Sensibly, the 3 ply 2″ x 6″ foundation posts are equipped with Post Protector to separate the wood from ground-contact and the severe decay hazards that lie within.

“Just about every building we erect includes Post Protector. We recommend Post Protector because there’s NO question that the life span of a wood post is dramatically improved when it’s void of soil or concrete contact & our customers get that. But some methods available to accomplish this can give the value driven, post frame consumer ‘sticker shock’ (e.g. continuous foundation, pier & bracket). The Post Protector method, on the other hand, does the job at such an attractive price point that 90% of our customers purchase this #valueadd  #problemsolver option.”

Post Protector isolates the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access.

Pole Barn Home with Post Protector

Wise County, TX: Enthusiastic customer, RA, sent pics as the builder frames his 30′ x 60′ x 14′ post frame home.

Once weathered in, experienced DIYer, RA, will finish out.

With a raised floor system, the 30′ x 40′ / 1200 sq. ft. living space will have a 9′ ceiling height with a crawl space below & the balance of the footprint, 30′ x 20′ x 14′, garage.

“My builder turned me on to Post Protector ‘barrier’ protection & it immediately made sense. I have replaced numerous pt fence posts in my day. Some last 3 years while others 10. Either way, pt posts in Ground Contact WILL fail. Why turn a blind eye to this fact & set posts in Ground Contact when Post Protector represents a simple, affordable, effective remedy? I recently saw a utility pole being installed & noticed that they, too, were utilizing ‘barrier’ protection. The decision to use Post Protector couldn’t have been any easier.”

Why add ‘Barrier’ protection to supplement ‘Chemical’ protection?

#1. Checks (splits/cracks) expose non-treated wood, #2. Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, & #3. Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms/insects to bypass the ‘preservative’ protection resulting in post failure.

Oshkosh, WI: #2308Lowes  #attnPSEs  #instorelumbersales Standout PSE (Project Specialist Exterior), Chris Trudell, says his customers embrace the Post Protector decay protection.

“Post Protector is the perfect example of a #valueadd option.

Simply, it has the features for which the buyer is prepared to pay extra… and the reason for that is obvious.

Customers understand that posts fail and, until now, have ‘excepted’ that for lack of a ‘better way.’

Post Protector is that #betterway & clearly a #problemsolver  #gamechanger.

Homeowners are immediately receptive, & some genuinely excited, that this #simplesolution finally exists.

Look, everyone in this industry has replaced posts that have fallen victim to decay.

We know it happens and the area of the post effected.

Whether in soil or concrete back-fill, soil-dwelling or atmospheric microorganisms attack the post from the grade line, to about 12 inches, or so, in the ground.

Complementing ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector adds ‘physical’ protection to block microorganisms’ post access.

My customers rely on my guidance to deliver both project quality & efficiency.

When it comes to a fence or any post-foundation project, Post Protector is a #nobrainer!

Geauga County, OH: Alicia M. founded ‘The Draft Horse Project,’ an equine assisted therapy program. They recently relocated and needed to add a pair of run-in sheds.

This was certainly not Alicia’s ‘first rodeo’ and she was adamant the 16′ x 24′ x 9′ sheds be strong enough to handle the close to 2000 lb. horses and, having had past experience with post failure, that they last. For strength, knowing exactly what to do, she insisted the 6″ x 6″ posts’ spacing be reduced to 4′ / 6′ centers. For longevity, after a tip from her builder, she insisted the 6″ x 6″ posts be wrapped in Post Protectors!

“When discussing the project with my builder, I voiced my post longevity concerns. He turned, walked to his truck and came back with a Post Protector. As he started to explain, I instantly understood & had to have them! The post goes in the ground WITHOUT ground-contact & the risk of decay it brings! My builder added, “Post Protector is a simple, affordable product that packs BIG benefits. It’s all you need.”

Mark recently included Post Protector on a deck project that is the subject of a DIY/Pro ‘how to’ video. Based on the subtitles he used…. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say he liked them!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3QEyUBR4PM&t=32s

“I like posts in the ground. Many regions want posts on concrete piers to eliminate ‘ground-contact’ & the risk of decay. With Post Protector, I set ‘In-Ground’ posts without ‘ground-contact’ & the risk of decay!

Post Protector easily saved me a full day of labor & at least $150 in materials.

Additional benefits include: #1. I can use wood “bridges” over each hole to temporarily support the deck #2. I can pour concrete at the end of the day so it cures overnight and maybe my favorite… #3. I can put the metric ton of excavated dirt back in the hole rather than hauling it away!

Post Protectors are awesome!”

It’s simple.  Lose Ground-Contact… MAXIMIZE Post Life!

Enjoy the Speed, Simplicity, Affordability, & Strength of a traditional, direct-burial, post foundation without longevity concerns.

Post Protector = MAXIMUM Post-Foundation Quality & Efficiency.

Essex, UK: In 2013, homeowner & talented DIY guy, RS, came across Post Protector online prior to construction of this garden Chinese Tea House & instantly loved the concept.

He ordered Post Protector and was impressed with quality, fit, & ease of use.

He and his family recently moved and they love their beautiful, new home but there is one thing missing…. he contacted me last week to place an order for the construction of another Tea House.

“I immediately knew I needed Post Protector for my foundation as post decay is a real concern. This brilliant product is a simple, affordable problem solver, allowing for in-ground posts to be void of the decay hazards of ground contact. I’m recreating the Tea House at my new home and wouldn’t build without Post Protector.”

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, #1. Checks (splits/cracks) exposing non-treated wood, #2. Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and #3. Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the ‘preservative’ protection resulting in post failure.

Post Protector isolates the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access.

DeKalb County, IL: Homeower & experienced DIY guy, JW, was kind enough to send pics of his recently completed deck project.

He purchased his materials from the friendly, knowledgeable folks at Lowe’s #0059 of DeKalb, IL.

With materials on-site & just 3 days away from his Saturday start, JW decided to search lowes.com to see if there was a ‘product out there’ that would rid him of the one concern he just couldn’t shake… in-ground post failure.

“As soon as Post Protector popped up on lowes.com, I was genuinely excited and instantly sold. I placed my order and had delivery to the house on Friday, just in time for the weekend & the start of my project. This product is so simple to use, affordable, and my post longevity concerns…. GONE! I liked the product so much that I delayed setting the last post so that I could take one to Lowe’s store to show them my .com ‘find’ and recommend they get them in their store! Post Protector is such a sensible ‘add’ any time a post goes in the ground!”

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so the decay-causing, soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.

A recent scientific study shows that by adding Post Protector’s ‘barrier’ protection, in-ground post longevity performance increases by 250%+!

Perfect for Decks, Fences, Pole Barns, Pergolas, or any post-foundation project!

Delia, AB, Canada: The post frame experts & fine folks at Remuda Building were kind enough to, again, share pics of this recently started project.

This job consists of two buildings… a 1,752 sq. ft., 2 BR, 2 Bath, post frame home and a 24′ x 42′ post frame garage/shop.

Remuda Building believes ‘quality’ is a ‘responsibility’ so to be sure their customers have NO longevity concerns or future foundation issues, these 3 ply 2x8s are prudently outfitted with Post Protector to isolate the post, neutralizing decay hazards.

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing, soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.

No need to spend a BUNCH of time & money on a ‘continuous foundation’ or ‘pier & bracket’ to eliminate soil/concrete-to-post contact when Post Protector does the same with extraordinary simplicity & affordability.

Enjoy the Speed, Simplicity, Affordability, & Strength of a traditional, direct-burial, post foundation without longevity concerns.

Spokane County, WA: Yet another enthusiastic customer & obviously talented DIY guy, JP, shared pics of his weekend mountain retreat.

This beautiful, 200 sq. ft. cabin with loft is set on gorgeous Mount Spokane at an elevation of 4000 feet, solar powered, teeming with wildlife, and, best of all, boasts a rock solid Post Protector foundation!

“I found Post Protector online as I was planning my cabin project and was instantly sold. This simple product is truly a problem solver by providing exactly the protection a post-foundation needs to prevent the legitimate threat of post failure. With my longevity concerns put to rest, utilizing the cost-effective post-foundation was an easy decision. Everyone that visits the cabin asks about Post Protector & loves the concept of adding ‘barrier’ protection to complement the ‘chemical’ protection. My upcoming fence & deck projects will include Post Protector.”

Here’s what a chemical preservative manufacturer, the foremost decay protection experts, has to say:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

Eagle Lake, AB, Canada: The post frame experts & fine folks at Remuda Building were kind enough to share these gorgeous pics of a recently completed project.

This beautiful, L-shaped, 48’x72’/48’x42’x18′, built on an equally beautiful lakeside property, oozes ‘quality’ throughout… and we all know ‘quality’ starts at the foundation!

That said & no surprise, this foundation consists of 4 ply 2″ x 8″ pressure treated posts and, to extinguish decay hazards, the prudent addition of Post Protector!

“Remuda Building… Above and Beyond Ordinary. This is more than just some corporate tagline. It represents our responsibility to provide the highest level of quality & service to every customer. Post Protector exemplifies our commitment to quality & shows the customer that we take the extra step to protect their investment. In addition, this obvious foundation improvement is easy to install and has an underwhelming effect on overall project cost.”

Post Protector isolates the post so that soil-dwelling, decay-causing microorganisms, atmospheric microorganisms (that attack concrete encased posts at the grade line) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.

“Everything I do has to be done ‘right’ & adding Post Protector is the ‘right’ way to set posts. This ingenious product isolates the in-ground post so it technically ‘isn’t in the ground’ hence, void of all decay hazards. Brilliant! Post Protector takes a sensible approach to decay protection, is affordable, and couldn’t be any simpler to install. I can’t see why anyone would invest in a barn without this foundation protection.”

Kent County, DE: The pros at First State Building provide custom designs as each customer has a unique vision for their outdoor space. That said, no two deck designs are identical but there is one feature included on every project….

a Post Protector foundation!

“We switched from ‘pier & bracket’ to Post Protector on all our post foundation projects 3 years ago. Like the ‘pier & bracket,’ Post Protector eliminates direct soil/concrete to wood contact. It provides ‘barrier’ protection safeguarding the post from soil/atmospheric microorganisms & subterranean insect attack. Our customers enjoy a cost savings of $250. per post without sacrificing quality & and we like the strength of our 6″ x 6″ foundation posts ‘in-ground’ rather than bolted to a bracket above grade. Post Protector is precisely the help a pressure treated post needs.”

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing, soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects &, when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.

Chatham-Kent, Ontario: Pole Barn builder, JN, is a proponent of including ‘additional decay protection’ for in-ground, pressure treated posts but was never satisfied with his approach.

“I have been brushing tar the bottom of my posts for additional decay protection but it’s time-consuming, messy, unsightly, & unprofessional. Furthermore, and most importantly, tar provides no check (split/crack) protection. Checks expose non-treated wood allowing decay-fungi a way around preservative protection. Post Protector is a complete, professional system that is lightweight, easy to install, attractive, affordable, & effective. My customer & I were thoroughly impressed! Post Protector is now standard on all my buildings.”

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, Checks (splits/cracks) exposing non-treated wood, Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the preservative protection resulting in post failure.

By adding the Post Protector & eliminating GROUND CONTACT, the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack disappear!

No surprise he included Post Protector.

“When we came across Post Protector online, it instantly struck a chord with my wife & me. We recently had to replace failed posts on our ‘leaning’ fence when preparing our previous home for sale. Post Protector was a logical addition to our new fence project.”

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, Checks (splits/cracks) exposing non-treated wood, Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the preservative protection resulting in post failure.

but not this time.

“Our other buildings are steel because I did not like post frame’s wood post foundation in direct soil or concrete contact. Since it’s been 12 years since my last build, I decided to revisit post frame for this project thinking foundation improvements may have been developed. Sure enough, I did a search & found Post Protector on www.homedepot.com.

The classic ‘Pole Barn’ is well-established as a popular construction method & for good reason.
Simple framing, quick construction, design flexibility, strength, and value.
The pole barn ‘skips’ the conventional foundation for a direct-burial, post-foundation.
Omitting the typical foundation & required site work, translates into a substantial cost advantage.
But to many, there’s a downside.
With the cost-savings comes the known risk of posts, when in direct soil or concrete contact, failing prematurely.
No worries…
Post Protector is the ‘simple’ way to eliminate soil/concrete contact and, at the same time, enjoy the simplicity, speed, strength, & value of a traditional, direct-burial, post foundation!
Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing, soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.

By simply adding the Post Protector ‘barrier’ system & eliminating GROUND CONTACT, the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack instantly disappear!

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing microorganisms (soil-dwelling/atmospheric) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.

And if that’s not enough for you, Post Protector is perfect for both the Pro & DIYer, simple to install, affordable, attractive appearance, integral uplift protection feature, minimizes chemical leaching & string-trimmer proof!

Post Protector post sleeve for fence postsPost Protector post sleeve for 6x6 fence postPost Protector post sleeve for 6x6 post

Harris County, TX: Experienced DIY guy, CH, just sent these pretty pics as he and his son began their fence project this past weekend.

This 320′, 6′ 6″ fence will feature a ‘rock solid’ foundation consisting of (40) 8′ oc, 6″ x 6″ pt posts, wrapped in Post Protector!

“Knowing that in-ground posts commonly fail prematurely, I asked my lumber supplier if he had any decay protection ideas for me. He recommended Post Protector. I immediately liked the idea of isolating the post and adding an additional layer of protection against decay. Post Protector is a ‘smart’ product that’s simple to install and gives me confidence that my fence posts will last.”

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing microorganisms (soil-dwelling/atmospheric) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.

Enjoy the Speed, Simplicity, Affordability, & Strength of a traditional, direct-burial, post foundation without longevity concerns.

Muscatine County, IA: (Pro Pics) Post Frame experts and Post Protector proponents, Petersen Construction, shared these great pics as they erect a 152′ x 104′ (80′ x 104′ x 23′ with flanking 36′ lean-tos) commercial truck storage/maintenance facility. This ‘traditional’ post frame foundation features (66) 3 ply 2×6 / 4 ply 2×8 in-ground posts along with a simple, yet remarkable performance enhancement… Post Protector!

“We let all our customers know about Post Protector. We explain how it retains all the ‘good’ (simplicity, affordability, strength) of a ‘traditional’ post foundation & easily excludes the ‘bad’ ….Ground-Contact. Consumers investing in pole barns ‘get it’ and welcome this simple, yet significant foundation protection.”

Add the Post Protector ‘barrier’ system. Eliminate GROUND CONTACT & all the decay hazards that lie within!

Here’s what a preservative manufacturer says:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

Floyd County, GA: CS had to hire a builder to replace his fence due to post failure. He sent pics as his builder wisely installs (42) new 4″ x 4″ & 4″ x 6″ fence posts, this time, with a significant advantage, Post Protector’s ‘barrier’ protection!

Here’s what preservative manufacturers, the foremost experts in decay protection, say about adding ‘barrier’ protection as an additional layer of protection for in-ground posts:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

“Barrier protection prevents the invasion of wood-destroying soil fungi and termites.” The GROUND CONTACT decay hazard is severe because of the plethora of SOIL-INHABITING, WOOD-ROTTING Microorganisms.

Post Protector provides a physical “barrier” separating the post from Soil and all the Decay Hazards that lie within.

That said & no surprise, a recent scientific study shows that ‘barrier’ protection increases post longevity performance by 250%+.

Post Protector…. the perfect complement to a pressure treated post!

Kent County, MI: Enthusiastic customer DJC sent pics as his post frame home takes shape. This gorgeous, valley gambrel, country home features 2400 sq. ft. of living space, 1200 sq. ft. garage with a 720 sq. ft. loft, and, prudently, a Post Protector foundation!

“We originally planned on a full basement but, all in, the quote was close to 50K & would have completely blown the budget! Voicing the need for a more affordable foundation option, our builder suggested Post Protector. He explained, “All you really need to do is eliminate ‘wood in ground-contact’ and the decay threat that it creates. Post Protector does just that, simply & affordably.”

With Post Protector, we saved a bunch of money without feeling we gave anything up. My wife & I believe Post Protector was the ‘smart’ foundation choice & know our new home will be past on to our children, and then our grandchildren!”

Add the Post Protector. Eliminate GROUND CONTACT & all the decay hazards that lie within!

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing microorganisms (soil-dwelling/atmospheric) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.

Post Protector for Pole Barns

There’s good reason why we’re REQUIRED to use posts with MAXIMUM chemical retention for ‘GROUND-CONTACT’ applications.

Decay hazards are highest due to SOIL-DWELLING, WOOD-FEEDING Microorganisms as well as wood-destroying subterranean insects.

Microorganisms are not only abundant in SOIL but in ATMOSPHERE, too!

So don’t think your ‘out of the woods’ with concrete back-fill.

We all know that posts in concrete fail at the grade line and the PP customer’s, with both soil & concrete encased posts, feedback supports that they’re often the first to go!

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, Checks (splits/cracks), Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the preservative protection resulting in post failure.

By simply adding the Post Protector ‘barrier’ system to 4″-6″ above the the grade-line/finished floor & eliminating GROUND CONTACT, the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack instantly disappear!

Complementing chemical preservatives, Post Protector isolates the post so that decay-causing microorganisms (soil-dwelling/atmospheric) and destructive subterranean insects have NO post access.

Brilliant!

FOUNDATION COMPARISON 2018 Revolutionizing1200x890 logo explanation projects list

#keepitsimple  #makeitlast

These common foundation options are designed to support & anchor a structure.

Walls, piers, or posts, sit atop a spread footing, below the frost line, transmitting loads to the earth.

With each method meeting the necessary structural requirements, the ‘post’ foundation is an attractive choice for the speed, strength, simplicity, & substantial cost advantage.

Despite all this goodness, many feel compelled to avoid this foundation type because it’s the only method that DOES NOT eliminate GROUND CONTACT, hence post longevity concern.

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect protection, Checks (splits/cracks) exposing non-treated wood, Inconsistent Chemical Absorption/Retention, and Chemical Leaching/Migration can pave a way for microorganisms & insects to bypass the preservative protection resulting in post failure.

By simply adding the Post Protector ‘barrier’ system & eliminating GROUND CONTACT, the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack instantly disappear!

Positioned adjacent to the practice field, the stand will provide the perfect vantage point for the Band Direct to observe & instruct, further honing the skills of the school’s already outstanding marching band.

“As a builder of custom homes, I’m well aware that ground-contact posts can fail. Not wanting to invest all the time & money in concrete ‘pier & bracket’ foundations to eliminate ground-contact, I decided to search for an alternative. I found a few options but it was Post Protector that made sense to me and, clearly, the most complete system. It isolates & protects the post from ground contact, easy installation, uplift protection, weed eater protection, & an attractive appearance, to name a few. Their customer service was outstanding, too. I called on Thursday afternoon with posts needing to be set on Saturday. Somehow, they pulled it off as the Post Protectors were delivered Friday afternoon! Excellent product & service!”

“I had reluctantly decided on a ‘continuous foundation’ knowing that a ‘wood foundation in ground contact’ creates a legitimate decay threat.

Post Protector’s foundation protection system will give you the best of both methods. Addressing the decay concern by eliminating all ground contact like the ‘continuous foundation’ while enjoying the simplicity, affordability of the traditional wood foundation.” I was an immediate believer and the decision to utilize these simple products with BIG benefits was an easy one.”

Loudon County, TN: Yet another enthusiastic DIY customer, TG, sent this pretty pic of his project in progress. When completed, this 30′ x 40′ x 11′ will long serve as an equipment storage shed as it features a foundation consisting of 3 ply 2″ x 6″ nail-lam posts with Post Protector.

“My family has always used pole barns but I’ve always said that there is one ‘weak link’ in this construction method, the wood-foundation in ground-contact. So when planning this barn, I decided to check around to see if there was a solution. As soon as I found Post Protector I knew I would use them. Their products address my foundation longevity concerns without giving up the simplicity and affordability that make pole barns so attractive.”

Post Protector…. because EVERYONE knows that wood in ‘Ground-Contact’ is NOT the optimum environment for longevity!

Retain the speed, simplicity, affordability, & strength of a direct burial post foundation without the threat of microorganism or insect attack.

Post Protector 6x6 with no ground contactPost Protector deck postsPost Protector deck post decay protection

LOSE the Ground Contact?

Don’t take my word for it… here’s what chemical preservative manufacturers have to say:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any post by protecting it from soil fungi & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve.”

“Barrier protection prevents the invasion of wood-destroying soil fungi and termites.”

The GROUND CONTACT decay hazard is severe because,

#1. SOIL retains moisture for long periods of time

#2. This creates conditions favorable for the plethora of SOIL-INHABITING, WOOD-ROTTING Microorganisms

#3. SOIL also harbors aggressive preservative depletion organisms.” ACS Technical Symposium

Post Protector provides a physical “barrier” separating the post from Soil and all the Decay Hazards that lie within.

That said & no surprise, a recent scientific study shows that ‘barrier’ protection increases post longevity performance by 250%+.

Western PA: Yet another PA car guy, enthusiastic customer & recent retiree, DH, sent this beautiful pic of his new 32x40x12 ‘toy shed’ taking shape.

DH has been planning this retirement gift to himself for about a year. He wanted a detached building/shop to provide much needed ‘elbow room’ for a quad, Harley, and his precious ’67 Corvette 427/Manual Coupe in 974 Rally Red!

“This is my first pole barn and had a year to do my research. I saw Post Protector & Skirt-Board Protector as an obvious foundation improvement because it’s common knowledge, and I know first-hand, that wood in soil contact leads to decay or insect infestation. Adding these low cost & easy to use foundation protection products made 100% sense to me and the decision to use them was a no-brainer.”

“Barrier protection increases longevity performance by 250%+”

Retain the speed, simplicity, strength & affordability of a direct-burial post-foundation without decay-causing GROUND CONTACT!

A MUCH better approach for Pole Barns, Decks, Fences, Pergolas, Mailbox posts or any post foundation project!

Post Protector Laminated Post Pole Barn for Model Ts IIPost Protector Laminated Post Protection Pole BarnPost Protector Laminated Post Rot Protection Pole BarnPost Protector Laminated Post Decay Protection Pole Barn

BW of Eastern PA: “Conceived by Henry Ford as practical, affordable, transportation for the common man, the Model T quickly became prized for its low cost, sensibility, and ease of maintenance.”

BW called & was investigating the use of ‘post frame’ for a new building to store his 1914 & ’21 Model T Touring cars.

During our conversation, I strongly suggested the use of the ‘post-frame’ method and likened it to the Model Ts he was so passionate about.

A week later, BW called:

“Like the Model T, pole barns are ‘smart’ in every way EXCEPT for the wood foundation in soil contact. I’ve chosen ‘post frame’ because of your foundation protection products. Skirt-Board & Post Protector deliver a ‘high performance’ foundation & do it in a way that shares some of the very same attributes that made both the Model T & Pole Barn so attractive; Practicality, Affordability, & Sensibility. Not sure why you’d build without them.”

Nice!

BW certainly loves practicality, affordability, & sensibility but as mentioned, he appreciates ‘high performance,’ too!

The Model T stablemates… (2) BMW M cars, a Z3 & E46!

Nice!

Post Protector: Lose the ground-contact…. Gain 250%+ in longevity performance!

FOUNDATION COMPARISON Post Protector, Pier and Bracket, Continuous

 

Peoria County, IL: Post Protector customer, J. Ray, wanted a foundation for his 30’x40′, post frame, starter home to be Void of Soil-Contact. So these are the (3) foundation options he received from his builder. Each options’ intent is to eliminate soil-to-wood contact. No need to look at very expensive / complicated methods to accomplish this. Post Protector is obviously the simplest, most affordable, and strongest way to get the job done!

We are all attracted to post frame construction for the simplicity, speed, design flexibility, and, most importantly, the impressive Value.

But there’s one very important component, the direct-burial, post-foundation, that has curiously avoided significant improvement despite the fact that this construction type has grown to become far more sophisticated & improvements made in all other areas.

Post foundation improvement is especially important as a direct soil-to-post foundation was never the best scenario & we’ve seen the chemical preservatives become more environmentally friendly but decay-fighting performance has suffered.

Post Protector provides simple, slide-on “barrier” protection to exclude soil-to-post contact & by isolating the post, decay-fungi & insects have no access. Moreover, chemical preservatives are confined to the post.

Lastly, it’s foundation/investment protection post frame consumers want at a justifiable price point!

With Post Protector… Exclude Soil-to-Post Contact… Preserve ‘Post Frame’ Simplicity, Speed, & Value!

Orange County, CA: Eagle Scout Service Project – Proud father, EH, and his obviously on-the-ball, Eagle Scout son were kind enough to share pics of his recently completed community service project.

The Eagle Scout service project is to demonstrate and develop leadership skills. Related to this are important lessons in project management and taking responsibility for a significant accomplishment.

He decided to build owls nests in 3 locations, featuring a twin 4″ x 4″ post foundation with a hinged center post for easy nest maintenance.

So he and his DIY dad did their due diligence to establish the best plan / materials to complete the job to the highest level of quality.

Needless to say, we were proud to be a part of his project & accomplishment.

“We wanted to be sure the the nests would stand the test of time and that starts with a solid foundation. Post Protector was simple way for us to make that happen. The product was easy to use, worked as perfectly as we thought it would, & will obviously make our foundation posts last.”

Good stuff!

Post Protector…. the PERFECT complement to an in-ground pressure treated or cedar post.

Post Protector and Grade Guard Installed on 6x6 pressure treated postsPost Protector 30 inch Grade Guard Post Decay Protection DeckPost Protector 30 inch Grade Guard Post Decay Protection Pole BarnPost Protector 30 inch Grade Guard Post Decay Protection Cedar FencePost Protector and Grade Guard In-Ground Post Installation

I’ve noticed that everyone taking on a project, whether Pro or DIY, has their own building techniques and every project seems to require a unique approach.

To accommodate all this individuality, Post Protector offers (2) different products to eliminate ground contact and provide maximum post longevity performance.

Our original, and most popular, 60″ & 42″ ‘Post Protector’ provide a ‘physical barrier’ that encapsulates the entire post, has an integral post uplift protection feature & come with uplift protection hardware, minimizes chemical leaching, & provides weed-eater protection.

We also offer the 30″ ‘Grade Guard’ that takes an even simpler approach. Regardless of post embedment depth, be it 6′ on a pole barn project or 2 1/2′ on the a fence project, it’s positioned so 4″- 6″ is above grade/finished floor grade. Providing a ‘physical barrier’ that targets the most decay prone region of the post and provides weed-eater protection.

The good news, both are super effective & affordable, ridiculously simple-to-install, & beyond sensible.

Post Protector & Grade Guard… perfectly complement pressure treated or cedar posts.

Clearly, a MUCH better way to approach a deck, fence, pole barn, or ANY post-foundation project!

6x6 pressure treated post with Post Protector6x6 Deck Post with Post Protector6x6 Post with Post Protector6x6 pressure treated Deck Posts with Post Protector

So why add Post Protector to eliminate Ground/Soil-to-Wood contact? Here’s one ‘pretty good’ reason:

“All treated poles eventually lose resistance to decay and insect infestation. Decay of treated poles is a gradual deterioration caused by Soil-Dwelling Fungi and other low forms of plant life. Damage by Soil-Dwelling Insect attack (termites, ants and wood borers) is considered jointly with decay because preservative treatment of wood is designed to resist both soil-fungi and insect attack.” (US Department of Agriculture)

Post Protector simply provides a physical “barrier” separating the post from soil and all the decay/degradation hazards it harbors.

Post Protector is featured on all their post-foundations, providing a physical “barrier” separating the post from Soil and all the Decay Hazards that lie within.

“We made the switch from ‘pier & bracket’ 3 years ago and believe it to be a smarter approach for us & our customers. The ‘pier & bracket’ is a foundation method used to eliminate soil-to-post contact. The Post Protector foundation method completes that same task with a cost savings of $250 per post! In addition, we like the level of structural integrity achieved with our posts embedded 3 feet in the ground. When setting posts, many of our customers have commented that Post Protector is a “clever” or “innovative” product and we see how it quickly satisfies their post longevity concerns. Great product with great customer service.”

Post Protector In-Ground Post Installation

Post Protector In-Ground Post Installation I

These cross-sections show typical installation detail for ‘outdoor’ post applications such as decks, fences, pergolas, mailbox posts to name a few.

The first image represents our 42″ Post Protector and the second, our 30″ Grade Guard product.

Here’s what chemical preservative manufacturers have to say about adding ‘barrier’ protection to work with their preservative:

“Barrier protection will substantially increase the lifespan of any pole by protecting it from fungal & insect attack far more effectively than a preservative treatment alone can achieve while preventing preservatives from leaching into the environment.”

“Barrier systems prevent the invasion of wood-destroying fungi and termites which typically occurs as the preservative migrates from the wood leaving it vulnerable to attack.”

Here’s what Wood Scientists’ studies show:

#1 Oregon State University 

‘Barrier’ Protectors were placed on both treated and untreated wood in-soil contact.

NO attempt was made to keep water from entering the upper open end of the Protectors.

The ‘barrier’ Protectors effectively prevented any fungal attack, even on the untreated stakes, by acting as an additional layer of protection against soil dwelling fungi.

In comparison, the unprotected stakes showed evidence of attack.”

#2 Dr. Albin Baecker 

“Pole failure can be prevented if soil fungi are excluded from post contact.

Field trials proved that ‘barrier’ protection prevented access of decay fungi to poles.

Preservatives are designed to prevent decay of in-service poles, but treated poles may fail prematurely through insect and fungal attack.

The ‘barrier’ protector is a biotechnological device that prevents insect and fungal attack, while simultaneously acting as an environmental barrier, which confines the preservative to the pole.”

Post Protectors are available in popular solid and laminated post sizes.

Also, commonly used for pole barn post protection as well.

Post Protector is available for on-line purchase through Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Amazon.

Please feel free to call to discuss your project and specific Post Protector / Grade Guard installation recommendations.

Cedar Fence Post Decay

Cape Cod, MA: Lumber Industry Pro Pics. MM, importer & wholesale distributor of specialty wood products, discovered his 10 year old white cedar fence posts had fallen victim to decay.

He knew that replacing the posts using the same approach, would likely give him the same result.

So he decided on western red cedar replacement posts but this time, the posts would be void of decay-causing, soil-to-post contact, courtesy of Post Protector.

“When faced with this repair project, I remembered a product that caught my eye on Facebook, Post Protector. I knew that eliminating direct soil-to-post contact would maximize longevity performance. My fencing contractor agreed and also appreciated the easy installation & the string-trimmer protection that Post Protector provides.”

EVERYONE knows that “There’s Always Room for Improvement” & that it’s best to “Work Smarter, Not Harder,” right?

We can also agree that pressure-treated wood is good but, there’s no denying, it’s longevity performance is oh so MUCH BETTER when NOT in direct GROUND-CONTACT.

That said, Post Protector & Skirt-Board Protector represent the obvious ‘Next-Gen’ foundation system for this Value/Quality driven construction method.

The “Improvement” piece: NO decay-provoking Ground-Contact or Chemical Leaching!

The “Smarter” piece: NO decay-provoking Ground-Contact or Chemical Leaching achieved Simply & Affordably!

Most importantly & no surprise, the overwhelming majority of CONSUMERS investing in post frame, want this prudent foundation protection when given the option!
