Support post standoff


I need to replace several 4x8 support posts in my basement. I would like to use some kind of standoff to keep them off the floor because I have moisture problems. What would be my best bet.

place a roof shingle upside down under the post.
how high do you need protection from moisture? does it actually flood?
