Decorative Post Caps: Choosing your style

You worked and brainstormed for hours to come up with the perfect plan for a deck. Perhaps through the determination of sheet and ability, perhaps through taking a great entrepreneur-six plans are coming to fruition. It won’t be long until you have an open space, that you can be proud. Before calling is over, however, you must consider how you will complete the railings. Many homeowners choose to realize the project with decorative post caps. While these serve no real function of a decking project, can be the perfect touch to finishing off a large piece of construction. Here are some of the options you have to choose from.

Can you really go wrong with the classic choice and wood will always be the “classic”, when it comes to decks and patios. When many homeowners think of “decorative post caps”, they do not always ostentatious and draws attention to detail. Want something that just fits, and that’s certainly a sense that you can choose. Good writers will treat their wood with special reel that will keep the wind and rain from getting in wheat. If the wood caps does not match the existing building, you can stain to get a perfect match. You can even paint to get the desired color.

If you are refilling of wood or other material, decorative metal post caps stand out in a good way. If you choose a polished metal, you’ll have that touch of sparkle that most bridges will not be able to match. If you choose colored metal, it is possible to have a tasteful decoration, playful to realize a different kind of aesthetics. Who said that a deck must be a serious affair? Another benefit of going with the metal: you’re not going to need to worry about the cover off over the next few years. Many a homeowner had to fight with loose covers, which often require glue and screws to secure. You won’t have this problem with self-locking metal.

If you really want to get wild, you can take advantage of decorative glass post caps. Don’t worry: these materials are made with tempered and will be a strong as any windshield. You’re not going to smash them with an errant elbow, in other words (although an errant baseball might be another matter). These will give you an option ornata, allowing you to take your draft deck to another level. Would you be the envy of the neighborhood? Glass could be an option to consider.

  1. Since you covered three types of decorative post caps, which is the best type to use? Which is te most affordable and the most durable among the three types of decorative post caps?


  2. Glass post caps sounds a great idea but i think it can be quite expensive. I'm glad you discussed these three types, it is easier to choose which type of post cap would be perfect for my needs. I think i would go with the classic which is wood and i think it is easier to maintain.


  3. Great information. I really love these post caps because it adds beauty to our fence. We have choosen the glass type in ours with light underneath the cap. It is so nice to look at most specially during night time.-
