NO. It will be too small.

Are These Actually Metal/Copper Caps or "Painted" Injection-Molded Plastic Caps??

They are plastic. Fooled me too.

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

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.

How much post does this slip over? 1"?

Asked by Biggity September 18, 2016

Answers

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.)

Will these remain a copper color after years of rain?

These are plastic so no worry of turning color. They look very high quality. The color is beautiful.

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

Asked by retired April 19, 2015

Answers

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).

What is the difference between this item (188907) and (188902)? HD Stock Numbers.

Asked by Matt September 22, 2014

Answer

Thank you for expressing interest in the DeckoRail Copper Plateau Post Caps. The difference between the two caps is the species of the wood base. 188907 base is made from pressure-treated pine where 188902 is built from cedar. Both post caps are designed to withstand the elements and perform wonderfully outdoors.

My wife and I recently had our fence stained, and wanted some new fence post caps to accent the color we chose. We decided on these primarily due to the aesthetic look of the copper tops and purchased 24 of them!! Can't beat the price!! We are in the early stages of evaluation due to some of the reviews and how the metal has prematurely oxidized for some. In essence I'm simultaneously reviewing two products at the moment. The caps themselves, and a product I purchased to protect them from the elements. The manufacturer recommends using car wax to add a protective coating, but we chose a product called Everbrite Protective Coating. It's uniquely designed to protect metals like copper when used in an outdoor application and will last longer than car wax. I suggest you consider this as an excellent pairing for you new post caps. We love the caps so far, and they look fantastic on our fence!! Give them some TLC by protecting the metal and staining the pressure treated pine you should be just fine!! Great Price, Good Looking Product!! Love 'Em!! Everbrite Link: https://www.everbritecoatings.com/cart/everbrite-coating-only-c-6.html

Sharp Looking Caps!
These shiny copper caps look great on the corner posts of my deck stairs. Really make a classy statement.

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.

No where in the description does it say these are plastic topped wood post caps. They look nice but are copper colored plastic. We were expecting copper or copper plated stainless steel. Very deceptive.
