Unless otherwise directed, we set our fences using PostMaster Posts from Master Halco.
steel posts are constructed of galvanized structural steel and can withstand 70-mph wind loads and heavy
rain. They will never warp or rot, they are impervious to bug infestations, and carry a 15-Year Limited Warranty.
Over the years, we've pulled out many cedar posts that have completely rotted
just below ground level. In our northern climate even posts set in concrete can turn to mush. I am a firm believer
in PostMaster Posts.
Check out the following
photos. Most of these fences were constructed using PM Posts. Where are the posts? They're designed to be covered
by the cedar boards of the fence. We still use cedar posts for some swing gates, but we treat any wood post that
goes into the ground with Cuprinol, a liquid wood preservative.
