Expensive to replace
And when this happens it is expensive to replace the post, new gate posts are expensive, and it takes a lot of time to remove the old post, install the new post then re-hang the gate making gate post replacement a particularly expensive operation.
Postsaver composite barrier sleeves prevent this problem occurring. They keep out the bugs that are waiting to rot your post. The sleeves are quickly and easily applied to the section of the post using a blow torch. They shrink on to your post forming a super tough barrier to the causes of rot and decay at the ground line section of the post where posts rot off and break. They keep your garden gates standing.
