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!

Because the decay hazards are severe, wood in GROUND CONTACT requires MAXIMUM chemical preservative retention.

That said, it probably makes good sense to LOSE the whole ‘GROUND CONTACT’ thing!

 “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 protection increases longevity performance by 250%+”
Post Protector… the PERFECT complement to a pressure-treated post!
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!

Pole Barn with Post Protector: Decay & Insect Protection

Post Protector 6x6Post Protector Pole Barn

Okmulgee County, OK: EC of Winsett Barn Co. sent pics as construction is well under way on this 60′ x 225′ x 18′ warehouse.

The (111), 5′ OC, 6″ x 6″ foundation posts are prudently protected by Post Protector.

“Our customer was originally drawn to the attractive ‘price per square foot’ of post frame but having posts in ground-contact, and the longevity concerns associated with that, gave him pause. We easily extinguished his concern by introducing Post Protector. We explained that Post Protector will allow for in-ground installation void of decay causing ground-contact while, preserving the attractive value of post frame construction.”

Post Protector / Skirt-Board Protector: Decay Protection

Pole Barn with Post Protector and Skirt-Bord Protector

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!

Wouldn’t you?
