We warranty our 4x4, 4x6 and 6x6 post caps for 10 years against fading, warping and discoloration. Our Pile Caps are warrantied for 3 years.
We offer a 30 day no-hassle return policy. Please call us to schedule a return BEFORE shipping your product back. Orders returned after 30 days will incur a 15% re-stocking fee. This helps us cover the additional cost we incur for refunding aged orders via the payment companies.
We offer several styles of post caps. Most of our pyramid, flat top and slim profile post caps are made out of ASA resin, which is an outdoor, UV resistant plastic. This plastic material is used in automobiles and marine vehicles, and will withstand extreme temperatures. We also offer many die-cast aluminum post caps, some of which are powder-coated in a durable outdoor worthy culor.
Yes, our caps can be painted any color you like. We suggest using Krylon Fusion Spray Paint, but any plastic ready spray paint will work.
We manufacture our line of post caps here in the United States.
Atlanta Post Caps are easily installed in two pieces. Attach the base to the post with the installation tabs on the top. Secure the base with decking screws, and SNAP the top into place. Be certain you are ready to install, as they are designed to stay on under harsh conditions. The tops are not always simple to remove once they are installed.
We have negotiated rates with our shipping carriers and are able to offer highly competitive shipping rates. Orders placed Monday - Friday before 2pm (EST), will usually be shipped out the same day. Please note: Free shipping is not available to Alaska or Hawaii.
The base of our post caps slide down the post 1.5", except on the Economy models, which only slide down 3/4".

Are my fence/deck posts Nominal or Actual (True)?
If your posts are less than their named dimension (I.E. less than 4x4, 4x6, or 6x6) you have a Nominal post. If they are equal to or greater than their named dimensions, you have an Actual or True post.
The easiest way to be certain is to measure!
If you've recently purchased 4 in. x 4 in. wood from a home supply store, you've most likely got a piece of wood that is actually 3.5 in. x 3.5 in. which is a nominal measurement. Be sure to measure if you have any doubt!
What does Nominal measurement mean?
When you see the word 'Nominal' next to lumber sizes, it means that the actual dimensions of the wood are smaller than what the sales name implies.
The reasons for this are based on how wood has been shaped through the years. Before precise machinery, a 4 in. x 4 in. was 'green wood', or wood that was rough and unfinished. After drying and planing, the wood would be approximately 3.5 in. x 3.5 in. Although this can often cause consumers considerable frustration, these standards are a result of lumber industry agreements and create a reliable way to ensure the correct sizes of lumber are obtainable.
What does Actual (real) measurement mean?
As the name suggests, an actual measurement is the actual dimensions of the lumber. So, if you purchase a 4 in. x 4 in. (actual), you are getting a piece of lumber that is genuinely 4 in x 4 in.
