Glass Post Caps: Timeless and Sophisticated

Mar 2, 2023

Post Caps provide protection for fences, decks and yard posts, while instantly upgrading your home’s architectural features. Some of the first “modern” post caps were old tin cans – turned upside down to protect the tops of split wood fence posts. While wood is inherently resilient to decay from moisture absorbing into the sides of the posts, water introduced to the top of the post invites swelling and cracking – necessitating repeated replacement. Covering the post with a can, a scrap of tin or sheet metal then provided some protection.

In urban settings, homeowners began beautifying their fence posts and newels with carved or turned wood post caps – indeed, wood post caps remain the most popular style in the world.

Solid glass post caps add color to your yard and garden with the radiant beauty of real glass. Our glass post caps add elegance to deck, porch, or fence posts – even raised garden bed posts. The stunning glass post caps lend design sophistication and colorful appeal to your outdoor living spaces, and suggest timeless beauty.

Made from 1/4″-thick solid-molded glass, our solid glass post caps are available in four colors: Amber, Black, Cobalt Blue, and Forest Green. With the exception of the nearly opaque Black, the four other colors are semi-transparent – you can even add your own lighting for extra effect.

These glass caps create a remarkably unique look and are available to fit a 4×4 or 6×6 post size.

Contact us for an estimate or order glass post caps online from our glasspostcaps.com store.
