Wood Post Caps

Wood post caps are available in many sizes including 4x4, 4x6, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, 9x9, and 10x10.  Crafted from Red Cedar, Redwood, Mahogany, or Pressure Treated Pine, these caps will hold up in even the toughest of climates.


Wood post caps are the perfect complement to your fence, deck, porch, or any other location that contains wood posts.  The caps not only provide style and decorative design, but also play a very important part in the life span of your wood post.  Posts that are left exposed to the elements are subjected to water and ice, and in some regions extreme heat.  All of these conditions equate to a more frequent replacement of your posts.  Water is the largest contributor of rot and decay.  When left alone, water sits on top of the post for many days, and works its way down into the post.  If it happens to then freeze, the ice expands the small gaps, making them larger for the next cycle.


Using a post cap made from a long lasting woods such as Red Cedar and Redwood significantly decreases and nearly eliminates the deterioration of the post top.  Not only do these wooden post caps last a long time, if they do need to be replaced, it is far less expensive and far easier to simply replace the cap rather than the entire post.


Wood post caps can and should be painted or stained to fully utilize the protection they offer.  Caps can be lightly adhered to the post with a marine grade adhesive, or using small stainless steel nails.


Most caps can be custom sized to fit your posts at no additional cost.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
