High-Quality Post Caps 
You can choose from a variety of colors and styles of post caps to make the perfect match for your landscape. In addition to making your fence look better, post caps can be protective against wind and rain and prevent your fence or deck from premature decay. Our durable post caps come with a 10-year warranty, so you do not need to worry about replacing them every time a new season rolls around. They are resistant to UV radiation from the sun and will remain bright and undistorted for years. 

Easy Installation 
Installing post caps should be only a minor task compared to putting in your fence or deck, and our patented procedure makes installation easy. Using the SNAP-CAP method, you just need to place the base on the post and screw it in through pre-drilled holes. Then, place the cap on top and snap it on. There are no screws visible after installation.
