Wood is used for various purposes, but wood rots can be discouraging, and as a result, you might have your fence posts, and wooden railings weakened and falling off. Having your wooden posts rot away is not desirable as you’ll always have to change your fence posts every few years. This article contains everything you need to know about how to prevent wood from rotting in the ground.
Moisture and warmth affect the wood so that it weakens it, makes it more porous, and eventually increases its surface area, which makes it a site for biological infestation, which ultimately causes wood rot. Using pressure-treated wood is an excellent way to prevent wood rotting as it contains chemicals that make the wood resistant to biological attack.
Although some might not like the choice of a pressure-treated wood as it contains arsenic and chromium, instead, there are other wood preservatives such as linseed oil, creosote, and water-borne naphthenate, which are also efficient against wood decay.
