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!

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…. the perfect complement to a pressure treated post!

Pole Barns, Decks, Fences, Pergolas, or any post-foundation project!

Mailbox Post Decay; Replacement with Post Protector


Berks County, PA: Homeowner & DIY Guy, JC, happened to be looking out the window as a strong wind gust took out his decay ravaged mailbox post.

His home was built in 2005 making the post’s service life a little over 12 years. He sensibly replaced the post using Post Protector & was kind enough to send these pics.

“Decay is prevented if SOIL-FUNGI (not moisture) are excluded from post contact.”
