Vertical posts are particularly susceptible to rot. Often, the bases of posts are left buried in soil or are in contact with the masonry and therefore, they have a tendency to soak up moisture, which causes rot. Since they typically support something above them, it is important to have a professional replace the rotten posts to insure that nothing shifts in the process.
Edmunds & Company uses rot resistant wood to replace log posts because many times the posts will continue to be exposed to moisture that could put the new logs at risk for rotting. Learn more about our cedar replacement logs.
One way to help prevent future problems with rot is to install spacers to get the log ends up off the ground (or cement) to allow air to dry out the end of the log and prevent moisture uptake by the end of the log.
Edmunds & Company has the right tools and the expertise to replace any rotten post.
