    I really liked the idea of the pvc or metal caps that would go over the top and maybe a couple screws in the side . Think of the top of the post being your house. Would you put a flat board on it for a roof or put screws on it?

    Some good points, but the price of the pvc or plastic caps are about 4 times the price of Cedar, and the fence is already 9 years old, and it’s still a fence, not living inside or under it.

    I even though of the metal caps, once again it also boils down to what the boss likes 😉 she likes the look of the wooden caps. The old caps had nails driven through the caps, I’m sure I should get some years out of the fence, hey the old caps lasted 9 years 🙂

    I get the same thing sometimes as well. Unless a third party comes in to confirm something wifey wants that I disagree with, you do what they want even if you don’t want to. Sigh! 🙁

    What if you took a piece of a roof shingle or ice guard and put it between the post and the cap? It would not be seen but help protect the post. You will still get rotten caps but maybe not have to replace rotten caps though.

    Perhaps a self sticking flexible flashing…Vycor or something?

    I think that one was a one-off baddie of sorts. Look here earlier in this thread.

    Yes that would be another good idea you both have.



    @madman_us
    actually I was surprised to see that the top of the posts are in pretty decent shape, as Doobie mentioned it is only one that has the eyes that is the worst one, kinda looks like my scope I use at work

    That’s funny. Reminds me of this character from an old 60’s Star Trek episode.

    No, you’re not. It was the eyes that reminded me of it.

    I don’t like that Vycor idea. Not sure why really, just doesn’t SEEM right for that application.
