The Overlooked Importance of Full Post Protection for Your Fence

When installing a new fence or replacing an existing one, most homeowners focus on picking out the perfect panels that match their home's style and desired level of privacy. However, the integrity and longevity of your fence heavily relies on the stability of the posts supporting it. Failing to protect your fence posts can lead to a myriad of issues down the road.

Installing quality Full Post Protectors is a crucial investment for any fencing project. Keep reading to learn why you should prioritize post protection and how products like Fence Armor can save you time, money, and frustration in the long run.

The Benefits of Full Post Protection

Full Post Protection offers numerous advantages:


Unprotected wood posts are vulnerable to moisture, mold, mildew, and sun damage. The weather takes a major toll, causing the posts to rot, splinter, or warp over time. Full-wrap post protectors act as a shield against the elements, keeping your posts in better condition for longer. End grain protection is a fancy term to say the top of the post. You have raw and untreated wood exposed to rain, snow, and sun, it is very important to get that covered with our CAP CLAW™ patented caps.

Pest Protection:

Termites, carpenter ants, and other wood-boring pests can ravage untreated posts over time. This can severely compromise the stability of your fence. PostSaver protectors create a physical barrier that these destructive bugs cannot chew through.

Accident Protection:

Accidental bumps from lawn mowers, string trimmers, and other landscaping equipment can damage unprotected posts. Fence Armor Full Post Protectors guard against incidental collisions, keeping your fence intact.

Enhanced Stability:

As posts weaken from exposure, String Trimmer damage, pests, or accidents, the structural integrity of the fence is threatened. Protecting the posts enhances the overall strength and wind resistance of the fence.

Longer Lifespan:

Taking the time to install post protectors extends the lifespan of your wood or vinyl fence, saving you from costly repairs or total replacement down the road.

Higher Property Value:

A well-maintained fence that retains its structural integrity can boost your property value. Fence Armor Full Post Protection is a value-adding upgrade.

Peace of Mind:

Knowing your fence posts are fully protected from all angles provides peace of mind. You can enjoy your property without worrying about your fence collapsing.

Key Features of Quality Post Protectors

All post protectors are not made equal. To reap the full benefits, be sure to choose protectors with these features:

360-degree coverage: The sleeves should wrap all the way around the posts to prevent damage from all sides. Three-sided protectors leave one side exposed.

Although, when it comes to the Fence Armor Privacy Post Protection, that can be a benefit that works with neighbor friendly fences. Learn more here.

Thick, durable material: Look for protectors made from American-made galvanized steel, like Fence Armor Post Guards, which resists cracking, splitting, and UV damage.

Length options: Choose sleeves long enough to cover and protect from maintenance tools and pests. Fence Armor Full Post Protection comes in 3" and 6" tall, offering added protection.

Snug fit: The protector should fit tightly around the post to keep out moisture and pests. Loose-fitting sleeves leave gaps.

Weed trimmer protection: The Fence Armor Full Post Protection has a strong radius that will not break your weed trimmer filament, while protecting the post.
