Treating exposed deck post to prevent water leakage


Any suggestions on a liquid fiberblass product which would be used to seal weathered cracks on 6x6 post which protrude through a garage roof/deck. Rain water flows through cracks into the garage below the deck.

A suggestion to "caulk" the cracks doesn't sound very permanent to me!

In addition, an aluminum collar would be installed and sealed at the point where the post penetrate the garage roof.

Any comments /suggestions appreciated.

Why don't you wrap the post with aluminum or poly boads and cap therm?
