Determine how long to pre-cut your wraps by measuring the pile diameter, multiplying by pi (3.14), and add 6 inches for overlapping.
Remove any attached organisms and clean surface. Not necessary on new construction.
Wrap with black stretch wrap. Multiple wraps are done top to bottom. A minimum of 3 layers is recommended.
Attach one side of the material with 3-4 nails evenly spaced.
Wrap the material around the pile and pull tight.
While keeping the material tight against the pile, place nails every 3-6 inches along the seam.
