fixing water damaged carport support


i have some water damaged 4x4 support posts in my carport, I was wondering what was the best way to fix them. I do not want to remove them, maybe just cut them off and put something underneath to keep them out of the water.

It depends on how high up the damage goes. If it's only an inch you can use a Simpson post hardware piece. But you need to drill in under the post to secure it to the slab.
