Timber fence posts in the ground will eventually rot. This is unavoidable and costly. Or is it?
Postsavers are composite sleeves that are applied and sealed to the ground level section of the post to prevent decay.
The problem of post rot
The Achilles heel with fence posts has always been at the point where it enters the ground, otherwise known as the ground line section. Frustratingly, they rot through at ground level whilst the rest of the fence is still in perfectly good condition and doesn’t need replacement.
And, as we all know, with bad weather your otherwise perfectly good fence can be smashed and broken by strong winds simply because the fence post rots through and breaks off.
Double the life of fence and gate posts
With changes in preservative legislation in recent years the problem has just been made worse as all the harmful but effective chemicals have been removed from fence preservative. However by fitting a Postsaver fence post sleeve to the vulnerable ground line section you will keep the causes of ground rot out and the preservative in, ensuring that your new fence will last for many, many years.
The use of Postsaver sleeves will typically double the life of your wooden fence posts giving you substantial long term cost savings. This saves you the hassle and expense of ongoing fence maintenance and repair. And with it costing you up to £80 to have a single fence post replaced the small extra cost of using Postsaver sleeved posts for your fencing is a small price to pay for long term peace of mind protection.
A fraction of the cost of replacing a post
