This deck in Overland Park, Kansas had the cheap caps from a big box store before we got to the scene. The customer wanted something very similar because they were able to paint the wood base of the old caps and really liked the copper look. Once I showed them that I could combine our Sunburst color post cap with a white base AND have it light up at night, they were ecstatic.
Even on this post next to the house, we had the cap chopped to fit so that all of their posts would be covered and protected from the weather.
Our lighted post caps are also made from sand cast aluminum too. They won’t weather like the old wood bases that were rotting and cracking there before.
