Adding Value to Your Property with Copper Post Caps
Anyone with posts in and around their property will benefit from having post caps to protect their posts.
Copper post caps are becoming a popular choice with many homeowners today, as copper is a
beautiful addition to your fencing posts and will remain polished with a shine for many years. They can easily be
re-polished or replaced once they become dull, and keep pests away from your posts. Your neighbors and visitors
will see that you are serious about keeping your property in top condition!
The post cap has been a decorative item ever since posts were created which were themselves decorative. Copper
post caps are available in many different visual and structural styles. They can protect your posts, keeping them
in top shape longer. Copper is rust resistant, but is able to oxidize to a green tint over time. They can easily be
re-polished, no need to completely replace them. The sun will shine brightly on your fence post caps making birds and other flying creatures avoid your fencing and
Copper post caps are excellent for repelling snails and slugs. Copper is actually very toxic to many
invertebrate creatures such as insects, mollusks and arachnids. This prevents insect nests around your posts and
keeps your posts cleaner. Post caps are also designed to have slippery surfaces so that birds and other creatures
cannot stand on top of them. This is especially useful when you wish to keep these animals from leaving excrement
on fencing and posts. There is nothing worse than having to clean up a mess that could have easily been prevented
once certain measures were taken. Keeping your fencing and posts clean is your responsibility, and such
responsibility may be overlooked, making your property value go down over time when deterioration occurs from
chemicals in excrement wastes.
Many people enjoy the value that the copper post caps add to their homes. The beauty of your property also
affects the value of your home. When your yard is unkempt, the property is actually worth a lot less than having a
yard in best condition. Adding a little more to your already perfect property will always increase the value.
Copper post caps are an excellent addition to fencing and show more class than most other decorative fencing
options. They can even come in different tones of copper as well as alloys that look more like gold, or brass.
Taking advantage of adding post caps to your posts around the property not only
protects your investment, they are an investment in themselves. Protecting your posts could not be easier than
placing protective caps to keep paint from peeling and preventing weather damage to the top of your posts. Wooden
posts often suffer the most damage from weather if there are small cracks in the paint on top. The wood absorbs
water and begins to split posts when the wood swells over time. Protective copper post caps ensure that the water
stays out as well as adds beauty to your already existing decorative posts. More on solar deck
