The Benefits of Installing Fence & Deck Post Caps

Fence and deck post caps are an essential part to protecting your posts, and here at Fence Armor® our goal is to provide you with protection for your posts, above and below. To install fence caps is to take smart precautionary measures to ensure that your fence or deck posts stay protected from the elements. To install fence caps, you are ensuring that you are protecting the most vulnerable part of any post, the post-end-grain. It is important to shy away from black plastic post caps as their damage is inevitable, whereas the Fence Armor® Universal Post Caps are made to last. By installing fence post caps you are ensuring that your post will not absorb water, therefore avoiding mold, mildew and eventually rot from occurring. Another reason we do not recommend using black plastic post caps is because the fence post tops are the part of the post most exposed to sun and wind, which dries the wood and leads to cracking, and the black plastic post caps will soon follow. With Fence Armor® Universal Post Caps you can be sure you are protecting the post tops from the elements, while protecting you and your family from the harsh edges of the post that are hidden under the post cap. When installing the fence post caps, consider paring it with the Fence Armor® Universal Decorative Finials to enhance the post while also adding an extra layer of protection.
