Do I have to seal the portion of post that goes in ground?
When using the posts in-ground, the portion of the post that is to be in-ground must be sealed with a moisture-resistant coating prior to installation.
This can be sealed with the same paint or stain as the above-ground portion of the post.
What do I have to seal the in-ground portion with?
Typically the same sealer is used.
Can I use H5 posts in-ground for structural use?
Yes. Prolam posts are 'Codemark' certified for inground structural use.
