Watch This Video Before Building a Wood Fence One of the biggest problems with a wood fence are the wood posts that start to decay, or get hit by a large colony of termites. One time I put a new fence post in, only to find out that my idea didn’t work. Actually it was an idea that I read about in one of my favorite homebuilding magazines. The magazine article suggested that you paint the bottom of your wood post with a roofing tar and then install the wood post, to enjoying many years of a maintenance free fence. Instead of using a roofing tar, I painted the bottom of the wood post fence with an elastomeric paint in the wood post rotted within one year and needed to be replaced. I’ve tried putting gravel at the bottom of the fence posts, leaving the wood exposed at the bottom and quite a few different things and I’m here to report that I haven’t came up with any improvements or tips that I could share with anyone that really worked good. Watch this video if you want to learn more about things I’ve done to wood posts that haven’t worked well.
