Are ther alternative to Wooden Post on Deck Foundation


The Deck "wood" post that is nailed on the cement foundation is rotten.
I understand there are synthetic deck materials made of some kind of plastic for the deck flooring.

Are there similar materials for the deck "wood" posts?
Is there a way to make the wood post resistant to rot?

Pressure treated wood in general is supposed to be rot resistant. If you don't want to use wood, poured concrete into a form or a steel post is your answer.
