The structural posts holding up your deck are an integral part of your build, but how can you jazz them up? The answer is easy: post caps! Made out of wood, metal, composite, vinyl, or even glass, post caps create a gorgeous finishing touch on any deck. Certain deck and fence post caps also contain lighting solutions, meaning you can add both decoration and safety to your property. Read on to learn about some of the amazing post caps available here at DecksDirect!

Metal post caps from Deckorators, such as the Aluminum Post Point in copper, and Fortress are also a great choice.
Glass post caps add a touch of elegance to your deck and are available in several attractive designs.

Lighted Post Cap Options
Installing lighted post caps is an excellent way to boost the aesthetic value and visibility of your deck and surrounding areas. Lighted caps may illuminate from all four sides outward or may emit light in a downward position. Most lighted post caps utilize traditional electricity, but there are solar deck post lights available that harness the Sun’s UV rays to power the lights. Check out our selection of deck post lights and solar post caps from Aurora Deck Lighting, LMT Mercer Group, and Classy Caps to view the wide range of lighted caps available. Coordinating dimmers, transformers, and connectors are sold separately.
Make your deck all it can be by adding attractive post caps. With tons of different styles and materials to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your property!
