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.

“Saving $250. per Post without Sacrificing Quality!”

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.

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.

"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.

“Precisely the protection essential for maximum longevity”

Post Protector 6x6 Fence Post sleevesPost Protector 6x6 Fence post sleeve decay protectionPost Protector 6x6 fence post rot protection 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."

Moisture is Not the ‘Cause’ of Decay

  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."

“The added post decay protection was far too logical to pass up.”

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.
