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?
