Customer Questions & Answers

How much post does this slip over? 1"?

Asked by: Biggity
I allowed 1 3/4" for my posts, and it worked fine. (I picked up some slightly oversized 3.75" posts, which I had to run through the saw to dado the post tops, to fit the 3.5" caps.)

Can these be installed in the cold weather? We recently went from the 60's to the 30's and 20's.

Asked by: Dan
I had no problem installing in late winter/early spring. My only concern was moisture. We had a heavy snow and wet spring. I was reluctant to install them over a wet post, but they are vinyl lined inside under the top, so that should be a problem. You also might have problems with glue to install (we used brads), and the fit might be snug if your posts have swollen. My posts are cedar and the caps are cedar, so I think a snug (but not tight!) fit is fine, since both should expand at the same rate.

Will these remain a copper color after years of rain?

We live in Seattle and are looking for post caps that will not turn a dingy brown. Will they eventually turn the green that copper turns?
Asked by: Nicole
No, they turn black and the metal begins to lift off the wood, even after being resealed.

Can the 4X4" wood victoria copper flat plateau post cap be secured to top of post with an adhesive?

Since the cap is 4X4" and the post is dressed to about 3.5X3.5" it would be easier to center the cap on the post. The builder has beveled the top of the post making it more difficult to center using long screws. If it is possible to use an adhesive , what would you recommend? I have a dozen posts to cap.
Asked by: bill
I read the manufacturer's install info, and that's what they recommended. A carpenter friend recommended brads, which is new to me, but I did like galvanized brads as they allow me to remove and maintain the caps in the future (if necessary). For example, I don't expect the copper paint to last forever, so when it wears, I'll paint the tops black to match the twisted wrought iron balusters in our cedar fence. It'll be easier to do that if I don't have to pry them off (if it's even possible).

4 in. x 4 in. Wood Victoria Copper Flat Plateau Post Cap is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.

After a short time, they started turning black and the metal began to lift off. I removed the metal off the caps, cleaned them, sealed it with clear paint, and reglued them. A month into this winter, several are turning black and even rusting in spots.

They're well made, and look great (after staining, even better). Aside from the attractive copper color, these metal topped caps seal the post tops from the weather, which with a quality stain, should double the post's life. Plus, they only cost us 1/3 more when we purchased ours at Lowes (special order only). They're $9.64, less about $1 off for their QSP volume pricing agreement (we bought $1000's in materials for our house build), but Home Depot's price still beats Lowes by a couple of bucks per post. Your choice, your price, I guess.

Because of several reviews complaining about the caps turning black, rather than developing a patina, I cleaned them with alcohol and sprayed a protective coating on them. Time will tell, but they look great so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product For The Money My husband I recently fenced two sides of our daughter's back yard (the previous owners had already fenced the other two sides). We are just "do-it-yourselfers", but with every project that we do, we try to use great care in doing it right and get the best possible materials at an affordable price. We needed 13 post caps. So, spending $10 - $15 per cap would have added up to quite a lot of money. We looked a number of places...in stores and online and found nothing that even came close to the quality and attractiveness of this cap for this price. This cap is the perfect finish to the fence at an affordable price. The instructions say to affix to the post with construction adhesive, so we used Liquid Nails, which worked perfectly. I also read that applying car wax initially and every 3 - 6 months will help the caps to keep their nice copper finish. So, we did that, as well. I think these should be sold in Home Depot stores (rather than online only). I would definitely recommend this product.

These products are a little less fancy than the more expensive models, but appear to be well made and look good. I purchased 32 of these caps and I had a problem with 5 of them being too tight to fit on the posts. I filed down the posts to get them on, but still had to force them on. Unfortunately, a couple of them are splitting at the seams because of this. So, they probably won't last. I purchased online.
