Deckorators® Metal Post Caps Installation

  • Specification 1

    • To install your Deckorators® post caps, we recommend using an exterior-grade construction adhesive to adhere the cap to the post. Apply the adhesive liberally to the inside of the cap, and then place the cap firmly over the top of the post.

       

 

Deckorators® Metal Post Caps Care & Maintenance

  • Specification 1

    • Our copper and stainless steel post caps come with a thin, clear marine lacquer designed to protect them before and during installation. Once exposed to the elements, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, moisture and pollution begin to break down this coating, exposing the metal underneath.


      Copper

      In its natural state, copper breaks down in the elements and develops a patina. In general, copper progresses from a natural salmon color to a series of russet browns and grays, and finally to a blue-green or gray-green patina.

      1. To maintain the shiny look, apply a car wax immediately after purchasing the cap, and reapply every 3 to 6 months.

      2. To remove an already tarnished finish, remove the old coating with mineral spirits and grade 0000 steel wool. Buff with grade 0000 steel wool for a satin finish; for a mirror-like finish, apply a car wax. Spray with a clear lacquer or polyurethane. Let dry and apply a car wax.

      3. To encourage a natural patina, remove the lacquer with mineral spirits and grade 0000 steel wool.


      Stainless Steel

      Stainless steel has a hard oxide coating making it resistant to stains. To maintain this coating, clean periodically with a mixture of vinegar and club soda.


      Colored Metal Post Caps

      Our Victoria post caps come in a variety of colors, including white, green, real patina, pewter and black. These colors are a powder-coated, baked-on finish that is extremely hard and durable, rarely requiring maintenance.

 

Deckorators® Metal Post Caps FAQs

  • Specification 1

    • Will my copper post caps remain a shiny copper color?
      Our copper post caps come with a thin, clear marine lacquer designed to protect them before and during installation. Once exposed to the elements, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, moisture and pollution begin to break down this coating, exposing the metal underneath. In its natural state, copper breaks down in the elements and patinas. In general, copper progresses from a natural salmon color to a series of russet browns and grays, and finally to a blue-green or gray-green patina.

      How do I keep my copper post cap from turning green/patina?
      To maintain the shiny look, apply a car wax immediately after purchasing the post cap, and reapply every 3 to 6 months.

      Can I speed up the patina process on my copper post caps?
      To encourage a natural patina, remove the lacquer with mineral spirits and grade 0000 steel wool.

  • Specification 2

    • Will my stainless steel post caps rust?
      Stainless steel is an alloy of iron that contains more than 10% chromium. Stainless steel has a hard oxide coating that makes it resistant to stains. Corrosion and wear strip away this coating causing the steel to rust. To maintain this coating, clean the post cap periodically with a mixture of vinegar and club soda.
