Hello Gp, Home Depot does carry a copper post cap through a different manufacturer. To locate it, type these keywords: "5 x 5 post cap copper", and you will find it.

These are decorative and what you are asking is not what these are for. They are awesome, hold up well and the copper color on mine has stayed even after four years in a four season climate.

They're designed to fit wider than the actual lumber post. Not by much but about 1/8"+ over-hang. They fit well if you can center them. My fence had a snug fit on the backside in a few places where I had to sit them flush in the back so a bit more overhang in the front. But matches my cedar fence with natural cedar stain pretty well

Will this copper patina with age or will it remain copper colored?

After 2-4 years, yes, they will look like a patina'd copper. Beyond that, like mine at 6 years, the steel color under the plating starts to show. Keep in mind these are not solid copper, just plating.

We have a dozen of these post caps and a lot of squirrels. We've never seen a squirrel perched for long on a post cap. When they jump off, the cap flies off the post. But that is a rare event.

I used exterior caulk and they stay on in storms etc. You can pull them off which is what I wanted for repainting the posts with a sprayer.

No. The peak of the cap only rises about 1-1/2 inches once it is seated on the post. You could trim the top of the post about an inch.

There shouldn't be an issue with putting vinegar or something else on the convert to make it look older, how are that will age over time within a few months and will not have the shiny look anyway.

Is this resistant to salt air?

Asked by Scooter January 11, 2016

Answers

Scooter, As with anything made of copper, its use in damp coastal/marine environments will develop patina layers faster than ones in dry inland areas. To extend the life of these beautiful copper caps, read the following information that was taken from the Instructions section of the boxed-off area of Info & Guides on the product page: Post Cap Care and Maintenance - Copper: In its natural state, copper breaks down in the elements and develops a patina. In general, copper progresses from a natural salmon color to a series of russet browns and grays, and finally to a blue-green or gray-green patina. To maintain the shiny look, apply a car wax immediately after purchasing the cap, and reapply every 3 to 6 months. To remove an already tarnished finish, remove the old coating with mineral spirits and grade 0000 steel wool. Buff with grade 0000 steel wool for a satin finish. For a mirror-like finish, apply a car wax or spray with a clear lacquer or polyurethane and let dry, and then apply a car wax."

Oxidizes fast in heat, humidity and salt air
We installed a fence 4 weeks ago. It is 420 linear feet so that's a lot of fence caps. You can see in the photo the fence is brand new, not even stained yet. They looked great to begin with. They do still look good from a distance but, close up, they are badly oxidized already. There was oxidation within a week of installation. I live on the Gulf Coast in Alabama and that may have some bearing on the fast oxidization because of the heat, humidity and salt air. There is full shade and bright sunlight along the fence area but all caps have oxidized at the same rate. Since they have a 'protective' clear coat, my only option will be to paint them when they get too bad. The fence caps on the steps up to the house front and back were originally black. I painted them a copper color to match. They look fabulous still. I made my own 'enamel' paint by mixing 2 parts copper acrylic craft paint and one part external water based polyurethane. That's my fallback plan. Recommended as good value with rervations regarding performance.

So far, so good. The copper post caps are exactly what I was looking for. They are attractive, without being too showy. Simple, yet elegant. Quite beautiful when the sun shines on them.

Previously I reviewed this product and gave it lower marks mainly because the ones that get direct sunlight in a state with a long, hot, humid summers, faded and tarnished after two summers and winters. The other reason I previously gave lower Quality and Value scores (I see those two scores as related) is because I searched *everywhere* for outdoor bright copper paint and came up empty. There were industrial products for big jobs (copper roofing, etc.), but I gave up. Then I was in Home Depot and spotted a bright copper metallic paint that can be for exterior but I don't think for constant exposure to sun, rain, etc. What a difference between the Rustoleum High Heat copper paint finish that I previously thought would restore their color and the Rustoleum product I recently got at Home Depot. See photo of before and after. Also I had spotted the Automotive enamel clear coat. I am very happy with this low-cost solution to extend the life of these super affordable caps. I have put them outside next to a new one (see photo) and, well, judge for yourself. Note that I tilted them down to show in bright daylight. Morning and dusk they "pop". Thanks Home Depot! Let's do this, together! p.s. I'm a loyal customer since going to the store that opened in the early 80s, at that time, Lindbergh area of Atlanta.

I recommend this product mainly because it's a reasonably good product at a very good price. But for each person, it depends. I bought 20 and 18 get direct sun in a southeastern state. Two years in and the 18 are quite dull and tarnished. I tried cleaning with SOS pads, but the surface does not shine up. So if you want accents in your yard, these will do it, and if they are in shade, probably will shine a lot longer than 2 years. I wrongly assumed that I could buy high gloss exterior copper (simulated) paint or enamel, but everything is INTERIOR use only. I searched marine coatings and the problem is, finding super bright gold metallic leaf or high gloss gold colors. I did see one or two online, but then a few reviewers said the color was NOT bright and shiny gold. Gold is not the same as copper effect anyway, but I would go for it if only someone made an EXTERIOR paint (preferably spray). I just tried Rustoleum High Heat Ultra. The cap color looks glossy, but it doesn't look that way on my spray-painted copper caps. I am debating if I want to spend $90 (with tax) to get 20 more of these caps. I certainly wouldn't buy the more expensive ones because I doubt they will fare much better. These caps would come out to $45 per year, or about $4 per month, to reclaim the landscape accenting we enjoyed. If you are going to sell your house, get these! Small investment to nicely differentiate your property from others.

Although pretty when new they do oxidize some and lose their luster. I've used two different glues and they still come loose after time. They should come with nails for attaching to the post.

Well made, simple post cap. For the Northwest climate, it is best to spray them with 2 coats of clear metal paint if you want the shiny copper color to last. The larger, mitred wooden post caps with the copper tops fail after a few years. After 6 years on my garden posts, these caps are still intact, but since they were not clear-painted, the copper patina look is the result.

I used one of these copper post caps on a redwood post that I put in to hang a bird feeder. I used a clear coat on the redwood to weatherproof it and just glued the cap to the top. After three years the whole thing (except the bird feeder!) looks like new. We have very hot dry summers and freezing nights in the winter.
