When Repairing Railing Don’t Forget The Post Caps!

Decks and porches require regular maintenance in order to keep them in the best shape year after year. Particularly after harsh winters and other bouts of drastic weather including rain and sleet as well as just plain cold! Your railings and other parts of your deck may require some upkeep from the damage done from these extremes. When repairing these railings, don’t forget the post caps!

Post toppers serve to cover each post on your deck railing, or fence. When you install each fencepost, it is critical that you cover each individual one with a cap. Post caps cover each railing post, and protect them from weather damage, and wear and tear that can occur over time. If you’re repairing your railing, it may serve you best to replace your post-toppers as well if you see damage or cracks in the caps that could let water or insects through to the fenceposts. Take this opportunity to explore more creative post tops. Acorn shaped, rounded, and glass caps provide a decorative touch to your front porch railing, or back deck. You can easily add lighting elements with solar capabilities to your porch with lighted post caps as well. Color, style, and flair can be added with ease, when you install these decorative items to your front porch railings and back porch railings.

If you are a confident do-it-yourself homeowner, you likely know that installing post caps is simple, fast, and easy. If you are a first time porch repairer at your home, rest assured that installing post caps is simple for any level of repair expertise. These protective tops are an essential part of any railing and should be looked upon as an opportunity to express your style and repair talent with creativity and ease.
