Wood posts are a great structural system, but using wood can also come with its downfalls if not properly protected. Remuda Building uses Grade Guard post-protectors on all of our projects to make sure you get longevity out of your building. Quality craftsmanship is something we take pride in and making sure your building is protected is one of the ways we add quality to our projects.
When wood is placed in to the ground there are lots of elements that can lead to the decay of the material. Moisture, bacteria and weather, being a few major culprits. By using this quality product, the vulnerable areas of the wood are protected and you can be confident that your project has been built right.
Grade Guard is designed to provide protection specifically in the area where post decay gets its start, 6″ above grade to 18″ below grade. The 30″ Grade Guard is simply positioned on the treated post so its top edge is 4″-6″ above grade or finished floor grade. Check out the Grade Guard website to learn more about the benefits of using this post protection method. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbKYmE2nkKM)
