    How do I attach post caps to a post?

    Use exterior-grade adhesive liberally to the inside of the cap and place the cap firmly over the top of the post. If you prefer to use Brad nails, be sure to pre-drill all nail holes to avoid splitting. For more information, refer to the installation instructions.

    What are the inside dimensions of 4” x 4” or 6” x 6” wood posts?
    • 4” x 4” post - inside dimensions: 3-1/2" x 3-1/2"
    • 6” x 6” post - inside dimensions: 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"
    Does a finish need to be applied to wood post caps?

    Yes. As with all wood products, we recommend that you coat the wood post caps with a high-quality exterior finish to preserve the wood's natural beauty and ensure a lifetime of enjoyment. Before installing, apply to all wood areas, including the underside of the cap.

    What preservative is used to protect pressure-treated wood post caps?

    Our wood post caps are protected by Copper Azole Type B (CA-B), an EPA-registered pesticide containing copper and azole compounds to protect it from termite attack and decay. For more information, refer to the Copper Azole Safe Handling Information.
