Post Protector post sleeve for a laminated postPost Protector post sleeves for laminated postsPost Protector post sleeve for 3 ply laminated post 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.

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."

“We Switched from ‘Pier & Bracket’ to Post Protector”

"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.

Post Protector: A Tar Coating Just Doesn’t do the Job!

Post Protector 6x6 post sleeve for pole buildingPost Protector 6x6 post sleeve for pole barnsPost Protector 6x6 post sleeve for pole barn 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!

Post Protector was a logical addition to our new fence project."

"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.

No worries...
