HB&G Maintenance-Free PermaPost
PermaPost by HB&G has all the features today's home designs call for. It's a no-maintenance, load-bearing porch post in the classic Colonial style. It's constructed with a polyethylene shell which surrounds a glavanized steel pipe (20 Gauge for the 5" post, 13 Gauge for the 6" post) and polyurethane foam filler. These posts will never fort and won't develop splits and checks, problems inherent with wood posts. PermaPosts are finished white so they can be painted or left unpainted. It also has load-bearing properties comparable to a better than similar sized wood-posts, the 5" post is rated to carry a load of up to 1,300 lbs and the 6" post is tested at 5,000 lbs (ASTM A500 - 40 K.S.I.).
Wilson Lumber stocks 5" x 9' (net 4") and 6" x 9' (net 5")*.
Choose from either the 5" or 6" Colonial post for a warm and inviting decorative look for your front porch. PermaPost is the last post you'll ever need to install.
