Plastic Lumber Rot Board


The use of a rot board along the bottom of a standard wood privacy fence can prolong the life and improve the usefulness in many cases.

This post construction trim board lives its life quietly rotting away as it is pressed against the ground which often offers maximum moisture exposure.

Replacing the use of standard treated timber with synthetic boards eliminates all negative effects of moisture and decay due to harsh exterior enviroment and natural elements.  Additionally a plastic lumber rot board cannot be infested by termites and other insects.  The plastic lumber alternative offers a lifespan as much as 10 times that of treated lumber in this application.

Often utilized profiles include:

  • 2x6x 8′ or by 12′
  • 2x8x 8′ or by 12′
  • 2x10x 8′ or by 12′
