Many fence companies sell what they call a "Post Cap" that is nothing more than a piece of wood nailed directly into the top of your fence post. Logic tells you this is a terrible way to keep water away from the end grain of your posts.

Every one of these "post caps" will eventually warp and look awful!
In a short time these awful products deteriorate from weather and rain and look terrible.

However, you as the consumer have the power to dictate what post cap you want for your fence. Our Miterless Traditional Pyramid wood post cap can never warp because it “slips over” your post as opposed to simply sitting on top of the post.

Very few fence companies will offer you a choice.

They will simply include a flat, beveled piece of wood and call it a "Post Cap". Force your fence company to use a slip over Miterless Post Cap™ from Post Cap Depot to protect your posts from absorbing moisture and eventually rotting.

ATTENTION FENCE AND DECK MANUFACTURERS
STAND OUT and OFFER LIFETIME SATISFACTION on wood and metal fence post caps! Guarantee your customers that their includedpost caps for their fence won't ever split at the corners. Your competitors will include cheap post caps that break apart and become worthless after a year or two with their fence installations, while you can provide lasting protection to families and business owners who want to extend the life of their investments.

Copper fence post caps provide the same benefits as our miterless wood products while offering a more sleek and attractive design. Copper fence and deck post tops naturally add visual appeal to any home or yard accessory, whether it's a fence, deck, pergola, arbor, lattice or gate. Stainless steel fence caps do the same thing, and along with our excellent customer service, Post Cap Depot just can't be beat!

All our Miterless Post Caps™ are guaranteed for life never to split at the corners, and are mounted with Liquid Nail. All copper and steel post caps can be sprayed to keep their shiny finish, or left to patina and weather naturally, and come with screws for secure fastening.

Don't get caught in the rain...without first covering your fence posts.

If you listen to the weather forecast for fall you'll know they're expecting an exceptionally severe El Niño this year. Couple that with a sever summer drought and you'll be left with dry fence or deck posts just itching to soak up as much water as possible once the heavy rain comes.

"The WMO said the majority of climate models and experts expect that El Niño will continue to strengthen through the rest of 2015, peaking between October and January. At its height, this El Niño could be among the top four strongest events on record since 1950." – World Meteorological Association

You better get those fence posts covered. And SOON.

Most people don't even know they need post caps. They don't know they're taking years off the life of their fence just because they were unaware of how copper, wood and stainless steel post caps protect a fence or deck. Check out our best selling fence post caps for affordable protection options ranging from copper to wood to stainless steel and every combo in between. The best part is we guarantee a quality product and make sure you receive a post cap that lasts.

Every Post Cap Depot Miterless Post Cap™ fits snuggly around the top of a fence post entirely covering the end-grain of the wood (where most moisture soaks into). Unlike competitors' products that have creases where the pieces come together, our one-piece designs lock out water better and are guaranteed never to split at the corners. Every wet day takes life out of your fence but just how much is up to you.

All our Miterless Post Caps™ are guaranteed for life never to split at the corners, and are mounted with Liquid Nail. All copper and steel fence post caps can be sprayed to keep their shiny finish, or left to patina and weather naturally, and come with screws for secure fastening.

The copper post cap to rule them all! Copper Pyramids from $11.95, available in 4x4, FULL 4", 5x5, 6x6, FULL 6", 4x6 and 8x8. Ready to install!

Look around and try to find high quality copper post caps at a better price. What you'll find is fence post caps assembled from multiple pieces, screwed, glued and welded together, that allow water to soak into your fence post.

Copper is by far one of the best materials for fence and deck accessories because it lasts, and looks good doing it. You'll notice natural wood and stainless steel handle weather differently than copper in that they tend to slowly break down and wear over time, looking less and less impressive as the years go on. They age gracefully, but not with the pizazz that patina copper brings to the table. If wood and steel are like Grandma and Grandpa – strong, proud and worthy of great respect despite seeing many storms, then weathered copper is the eccentric aunt who shows up with gifts to Thanksgiving. Fence posts decked out with copper will shine from the first day you install them to the final day the post rots away beneath them.

Go ahead and blame whoever invented wood for not making it impervious to water, but unfortunately your fence won't last forever [unless maybe climate change decides not to take its time hahaha unsettling elbow nudge]. THE POINT IS you're going to get rain, and your fence posts are going to soak it up without some sort of protection covering the tops.

Most wood fence post caps are glued together or held at the corners with staples. Protective coverings for posts are most effective when made from a single piece of material because water and rain cascades off of them naturally without seeping into the corners of the wood or metal. Water running down the sides of the post absorbs into the grain at a much slower rate, and it only soaks into the outer most surface of the post. But if a post cap is poorly constructed and allows water onto the top of the post it will freely soak all the way through the wood and break it down much faster. 10 times faster. Than if the post was covered with a miterless wood or one piece copper post cap.

In our last post, we talked about how important it is to keep your wood fence protected from the rain. Moisture can make your posts split, but high quality fence post caps, like wood or copper post caps from Post Cap Depot, can help to protect your fence. Although the rain is a huge concern for your fence, sun can also be hard on it. That is why our experts have come up with the following guide for protecting your fence during the sunny summer:

#1. Get rid of any plant life growing over your fence - Sunshine causes plants to grow quickly, and if you have vegetation growing over your fence, it can cause the pickets to get pulled out of the rails! If you already have loose or damaged pickets, get them replaced.

#2. Make sure that your fence is clean - From time to time, power washing each side of your fence is necessary to wash away any mildew or mold. When you power wash, ensure that the tip of your washer is at least thirty six inches away from your fence to prevent damage. Let your fence dry for a full day (at least) before moving on to the next step.

#3. Use a wood stain that contains a UV blocker - When it comes to protecting a wood fence from sunshine, nothing is more important than a good wood stain. Follow all directions on how to apply the stain. If you have picked a quality option, you won’t have to worry about staining your fence again for a few years.

We've all driven by a house and seen a car like this parked in the yard. The abandoned yard car puts out a very distinct vibe to all passersby, which can be a good thing! But it can also work against you. Post Cap Depot copper and wood post caps save you money and make you look more put together than the bozo with the broke down Trans Am in his front yard. Or wait no he's pretty cool I think. He says he's "fixing that ride up" for his mom so she can pick up her own mail from the postal annex and also so she doesn't spend an hour walking home from the grocery store in her super thin old lady shoes. Frankly I'm not sure she can handle the horsepower but I'm staying out of it. Buy post caps or be the Trans Am guy, those are your options.

One of the things that we all love about the spring is all of the rain that prompts our flowers to start blooming. Rain makes everything come to life, but unfortunately, it can be hard on your fence. A great way to keep your fence safe when moisture is present it to install wood fence post caps. Post caps made from a single piece of wood, like ours, won’t split or break, and they can help to keep your fence strong. The following is a list of a few other things that you can do to protect your fence in the rain:

1.) Use a waterproof sealant or stain - You can extend your fence’s life by years if you simply apply a coat of waterproof stain or sealant on your fence before the spring and winter. There are some brands out there that even protect against mold, mildew, rot, etc. 
2.) Remove any debris that are close to your fence - Walk along your fence and remove any tall grass, wet leaves, twigs, weeds and other debris that may trap moisture against your fence. 
3.) Check that your posts are stable - If one of your posts have already succumbed to moisture, then it can negatively affect the surrounding areas of your fence in a big way. Check that your posts are stable by gently rocking them back and forth. 

Don’t let the rainy spring cause trouble for your fence! Protect your investment with the quality fence post caps from Post Cap Depot. Shop today!

Now that you know that your fence is safe from moisture, it is time to start picking out great plants for your fence. The following is a list of the best fast-climbing plants:

2.) Star Jasmine - Star Jasmine is a gorgeous evergreen vine that is known for its white, star-shaped flowers. This fast growing plant is incredibly fragrant and it tends to do well in full sun.
3.) Etoile Violette - This is a flowering vine that will typically grow up to twelve feet. You will find beautiful purple flowers with golden stamens on these plants, and they tend to bloom profusely during the summer.
