POST CAP CARE:
METAL DECK POST CAPS:
Our copper finish, stainless steel, and brass post caps come with a thin, clear marine lacquer designed to protect them before and during installation. Once exposed to the elements, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, moisture and pollution begin to break down this coating, exposing the metal underneath.
COPPER FINISH DECK POST CAPS:
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.
- To encourage a natural patina, remove the lacquer with mineral spirits and grade 0000 steel wool.
STAINLESS STEEL AND BRASS DECK POST CAPS:
Stainless steel has a hard oxide coating making it resistant to stains. To maintain this coating, clean periodically with a mixture of vinegar and club soda. As with the copper finish, our brass post caps are protected with a thin, clear coating of lacquer. Periodic reapplication of this clear coating will help to protect the brass.
COLORED METAL DECK POST CAPS:
Our Victoria post caps come in a variety of colors, including white, green, real patina, pewter and black. These colors are a powder-coated, baked-on finish that is extremely hard and durable, rarely requiring maintenance.
WOOD DECK POST CAPS:
As with all wood products, we recommend that you coat these with a high-quality exterior finish to preserve the wood's natural beauty and ensure a lifetime of enjoyment. Apply to all wood areas, including the underside of the cap, before installation.
DECK POST CAPS WITH WOOD BASE TRIM:
If your post cap has a wood base, apply a high quality exterior finish to all wood areas before installation. We recommend reapplying the finish annually to preserve the wood's natural beauty and protect it from the elements.
GLASS DECK POST CAPS:
Exposure to the elements may cause the copper-wrapped solder on your glass post cap to oxidize and lose its original color. Applying car wax before placing the post cap outdoors will help to prevent the initial oxidation. We have found regular furniture polish to have the same affect, but its prevention time may vary based on geographical location. Reapply the car wax/furniture polish every 3 to 6 months as needed.
NANTUCKET POST CAPS:
Wood Post Caps:
Manufacturer and wholesale supplier of fine outdoor cedar and redwood deck / fence post caps, finials, pergolas, arbors, decorative fences, decorative gates and accessories.
A marine grade adhesive can be used to fasten wooden caps to the fence posts.
Slip Over Post Caps
All of our slip over post caps are available in clear, vertical grain, kiln dried, Redwood and Clear Western Red Cedar. These wood types are best known for their durability in harsh environments, and their beauty.
Slip over fence caps are crafted using a 5 piece construction with V-nails in each corner of the molding. 12 or more stainless steel staples are used to permanently fasten the molding to the underside of the wooden post cap.
For a nail-free look, simply apply an exterior marine adhesive like 3M 5200 to the top of the post and slip the post cap over. Stainless steel nails may be used as an alternative, but not necessary.
Non-Slip Over Deck Post Caps:
Product Care and Installation
Clear, all heart, vertical grain, kiln dried, Redwood and clear Western Red Cedar.
Non-slip over wooden outdoor post caps are crafted utilizing one piece construction.
With our post caps, there is no costly on-site assembly! Simply apply an exterior marine adhesive, such as 3M 5200 to the top of the post. Pre-drill the cap and affix with stainless steel nails. Your NPC Post Cap is now secure.
Finial Care and Installation:
All wood post cap finials are constructed of laminated clear, Redwood and Western Red Cedar. They should be sealed BEFORE installation with an oil base primer, paint, stain, or preservative to ensure long life.
ALL FINIALS MUST HAVE A PROPER SEALER AND/OR PAINT APPLIED TO PREVENT CRACKING.
