Choosing the right post cap style

Are you having a hard time choosing post caps for your home fence or deck? Maybe you’ve just gone through some renovations updating your outdoor living space, or maybe you’re a new home-owner wanting to add a little something special to your outdoor space. The last step to completing your outdoor project is choosing the best finishing touches for your posts to protect them years down the line. With so many different post caps on the market, it can become overwhelming choosing just the right post cap for your fence or deck.

It comes down to what your preferences are. Whether you want the post caps to be made from metal or plastic and what color and style will complement your home best. We offer several different style post caps you can choose from with an array of colors, materials and silhouettes. For a truly unique landscape we also offer solar post caps and outdoor lighting options that will have your neighbors coming to you for ideas on how to update their own outdoor space.

Our patented Snap-Cap post caps made from ASA resin (commonly used material in automobiles and boats) offers the widest array of colors. Since it is easy to match, black is the most popular color purchased which makes for a traditional and classic styled deck. Brown is frequently an alternative used on docks and decks for a more natural looking landscape. On the other hand, white can be the most difficult color to match, as there is no such thing as a true white and comes in a variety of shades. Adding a pop of color, like the green or cedar color, will be sure to turn heads. We look forward to continuously expanding our color variety giving customers more options. If you’re interested in a unique color not offered our patented snap-cap designed post caps can be painted. We suggest using Krylon Fusion Spray Paint, but any plastic ready spray paint will work for these post caps.

Our heavy duty cast aluminum post caps offer a simpler silhouette. They are available in powder coated black, white, copper and an unfinished plain aluminum that allows you to create a custom style or can be left as is. When painting the Aluminum post caps, we recommend using a metal ready spray paint if powder coating is not available to you. We also offer several outdoor lighting options from chandeliers, motion sensor deck lights, and solar lighting for your outdoor landscape. The solar post caps we offer are the best we’ve found on the market. Our solar caps we offer come with a standard 1-year warranty. Solar post caps are available for chain link fences and posts ranging from 2.5” up to 6” posts.
