How do I fix my front porch wood columns, that are rotting along the bottom?


The bottom edges of our front square pillars are starting to rot. Is there a way I can repair them, instead of replacing them?

not really no unles you jack up the porch temporarily to take the weight.. cut the posts off and build a larger base for them to bear on...
