THE NANTUCKET POST CAP
We have a large selection of post caps and finial styles, along with our many other attractive products in which can be customized to fit your landscaping and design needs!
Our Materials All of our post caps are available in Clear Vertical-Grain Kiln-Dried Redwood and Clear Western Red Cedar. These woods are known for their durability and beauty. Cedar also has a very long standing, strong resistance to mold and mildew. Its low density makes it less likely to swell, warp, cup or twist, compared to other soft and hardwoods. Due to the caps being installed horizontally on top of the posts, they receive the most sun exposure. So even though you may leave a cedar fence to weather naturally, we highly recommend treating not only the cedar caps but all wood species caps. We recommend all post caps be sealed before installation with an exterior urethane, stain or paint to ensure long life. These should be applied to all surfaces including the inside and under the base where the cap rests on the post. With cedar, you can find many semi-transparent stains to keep the cedar look while protecting the caps. We also have Azek caps that look like wood but do not have any of the warping issues. You must paint them, however, to avoid the exposed cells from fading to an off-white color.
Our Construction: Slip over caps are crafted using a five-piece construction, with galvanized V-nails in each corner of the molding. Twelve or more stainless-steel staples are used to permanently fasten the molding to the underside of the cap.
Our Installation: For a nail-free look, simply apply an exterior marine grade adhesive, such as 3M 5200, to the top of the post and slip the post cap over, straighten a bit and you're done! Stainless-steel finish nails may be used.
Our Guarantee: Nobody beats our Quality, Nobody beats our Service!
