Our slip-over wooden post caps not only adorn the finest homes, but many elaborate estates all over the country. Post caps protect your posts from nature's elements while adding a unique finishing touch to a variety of deck, fence, dock, gate, sign, or mailbox projects. Numerous styles and sizes of wooden post caps are available and these are offered in two finely-selected hardwood species: western red cedar or redwood.
Slip-Over Wood Post Cap Advantages:
- Adds finished craftsman's appearance to any residential or commercial application
- Covers damaged and split-milled ends
- Compensates for non-level field cutting of posts
- Will not warp, twist, cup, check, or separate at joints under normal conditions
- Ease of installation - simply slips down over post!
For a nail-free look, simply apply an exterior marine adhesive (we recommend 3M 5200) to the top of the post, slip the post cap over, and walk away! (Stainless steel finish nails may be used as an alternative, but are not necessary.) As with any organic wood product, it is recommended that you coat the wood portion of the post cap (underside as well) with a high-quality exterior finish to preserve the wood's natural beauty and ensure a lifetime of enjoyment.
Slip-over post caps come standard with an extra 1/8" for ease of placing your cap over the fence post. (Example: A 4" x 4" post cap is actually 4 1/8" x 4 1/8").
