“… Pressure Treated Posts in ‘Ground-Contact’ WILL Fail”

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. Post Protector isolates the post so soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms, have NO post access. Pole Barn, Deck, Fence, Pergola or any post-foundation project! It's simple. LOSE ground-contact... MAXIMIZE post-life! 877-WON'T ROT (966-8768) http://www.postprotector.com/
