Are ther alternative to Wooden Post on Deck Foundation


Postby herbolaryo » Sun May 27, 2007 3:17 am

The Deck "wood" post that is nailed on the cement foundation is rotten.
I understand there are synthetic deck materials made of some kind of plastic for the deck flooring.

Are there similar materials for the deck "wood" posts?
Is there a way to make the wood post resistant to rot?

The link below will take you to a great wood preserver and you should saturate any posts in it, The only real alternative is a concrete posts but you may struggle to fix the timber to it. See our project on fixing to masonry to get the best idea of how to do this.
