Ordering

How do I make sure I order the right size Post Cap?
Measure all of your posts before ordering for the best cap fit – Nortek’s Round copper post caps are all made on the one quarter inch increments. It is up to you to round up or down should your log diameter’s measurement fall in between sizes on the ¼”. When rounding down a small amount of material needs to be removed from the top edge of your log post for a snug fit, either by sanding or grinding with an angle head grinder and a rough grit of sand paper (60 grit). If you elect to round up, your caps may fit a bit loose which can be adjusted with our sizing tape, which is available in our accessories section. Applying a little clear caulk is also a nice finishing touch for those gaps between the log and post cap.

Please note :
• Be sure to measure all your posts.
• Custom sizes of all our products and custom work available on quote basis.
• All deck post caps made on 1/4" increments to achieve the best fit possible.
  • To place a custom order call Toll-free 1-715-324-5748

Do you offer any discounts on large quantity orders?
We do offer promotional discounts for orders over $500.00 = 5% Discount
over $1000.00 = 10% Discount

Your copper post cap order is handmade one at a time for each and every order we take, so during our busier time of the year, May thru October we ship approximately within 2 - 4 weeks. Depending on your ship to address, you need to add a few days to a week onto that for your order to actually be delivered.

Sometimes we can ship sooner depending on the order and time of the year. Custom orders are within the same time frame, but could take up to 6 weeks to ship on bigger orders.

If you provide a valid e-mail address with your order, we will send you a confirmation e-mail once your order is shipped, including your UPS tracking number and the scheduled date of delivery. Please call 1-715-324- 5748 if you have any questions regarding our shipping policies.

Measurement

I have irregular posts the measurement in one direction on the post (at the largest diameter) is 10.25" and the other direction the smallest diameter measures only 9.50" any suggestions for the best fit?
NEW - 2016 - we are now offering our Custom Tiara natural copper post cap see under Caps....or click the underlined


We have found to get the best possible fit , while keeping a beautiful eye pleasing look,
drop the cap size down from the largest diameter one quarter of an inch and order that size cap.

When ready to install you will need to remove a 1/8" thickness of wood from each side of that widest diameter.

Using an angle head grinder with a rough grit of sandpaper makes the job go easily.
Make a scribe mark on your post either 1" or 2" down from the top, depending on which
style of post cap you are installing. The Sedona cap has a 1" drop from the top the
Tiara has a 2" drop from the top. Now the cap will fit snuger.

The gap on the smaller diameter sides can be filled in with some backer rod, chink or exterior caulk.

Also see our SIZING TAPE in our accessories section. for snugging up the fit.

If you have any question feel free to call us; 1-715-234-5748

How do I measure for correct Jack Wrap fit?
Measuring for Jack-Wrap®

You need a minimum of 2 inches of overlap of the Jack-Wrap® on the log post for proper installation. Measure circumference as shown above. Itemize each logs complete circumference to the nearest ½". (Example 28½, 32, etc.)

Helpful Hints:
When ordering Jack-Wrap, be sure to measure every log to make sure you get the proper fit for each log post. The height of the Copper needs to overlap the log post by 2". Every Jack-Wrap is a custom hand made product to ensure a tailored fit on your log home.

The decorative solid Copper jack cover may have minor scratches, which is typical of this material. Over time, the Copper will take on a rich patina and any imperfections will disappear.

Copper Questions

What thichness or gage is the copper and does the copper patina?
The copper used for our deck post caps is heavy gage .032" thickness or 24 ounces / SQ FT or nearest gage (B & S) 20 solid natural copper, It comes to you in the natural and unfinished state. The patina process begins as soon as you open the packaging, the more you touch the caps, the faster they will achieve a rich patina, just like a new penny in your pocket turns dark quite quickly from the oils in your hands, to a bronze like finish.

Please Note: The copper will go through an "ugly duckling" stage, but then before you know it a rich beautiful patina has arrived.

Simply put "Patience attains the goal".

If you like the Shiny luster of the new copper and want to keep the copper shiny, you can protect your caps from the elements and the patina process with (Permlac)a lacquer spray sealant / protectant, found in our accessories pages.

Installation

How do I attach the copper post cap to the post?
Product Installations

General Recommendations

The Sedona
This cap is supplied with three Copper tacks.
Fit the cap in place on the post first. Then use
a good exterior adhesive or caulk. Let this set
until caps are secure before lightly tapping the
tacks in place.

We recommend the Tiara post cap or any of our
other copper post caps be installed using a good exterior adhesive, when ready to keep in place.

The 3M product we offer 550 sealant is a superior adhesive and truly is a secure adhesive.

Dear Nortek, Today I received my order of 17 Sedona Post Caps ranging from 8.5" to 16.5". I went right to work installing them. In one hour I had all caps glued and installed and I'm not handy! I want to thank you for you fine service and perfect order. The caps are beautiful and really look good on my decks. I believe they will help my deck to weather much better. I would certainly recommend your product and service to anyone looking to preserve and beautify their deck. Feel free to use me as a reference for your business. Sincerely, Gary Tholen Breckenridge, Colorado
