“NO question the Life Span is Dramatically Improved…”

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.

Why Post Protector? Here’s a good reason!

DECK POST DECAY ProtectionDECK POST DECAY 6 x 6 protectionDECK POST DECAY 1200x944

DECK POST DECAY Barrier Protection Post Protector

Even though chemical preservatives deliver solid decay & insect 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 ‘chemical’ protection resulting in post failure.
To thwart the aforementioned conditions that facilitate microorganism & insect attack & to complement ‘chemical’ protection, Post Protector adds ‘barrier’ protection isolating the post so that decay-causing, soil-dwelling microorganisms/insects & when in concrete, atmospheric microorganisms have NO post access.
It’s simple…
‘Chemical’ protection + ‘Barrier’ protection = MAXIMUM Longevity!

“… 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!

Post Protector at Lowe’s: “…take post longevity to the next level!” #gamechanger

Post Protector at LOWES game changerPost Protector post sleeve at LowesPost Protector 4x4 post sleeve at LowesPost Protector 4x4 post sleeve sold at LowesPost Protector 4x4 post sleeves available at Lowes

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!

“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!”

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