Nantucket Post Caps are made of Clear Western Red Cedar, which is known for durability and beauty. Cedar has a very long standing, strong resistance to mold and mildew. It's low density makes it less likely to swell, warp, cup or twist, compared to other soft and hard woods. Due to the caps being installed horizontally on top of the posts, they receive the most sun exposure. So even though you may leave a cedar fence to weather naturally, it is highly recommend treating not only the cedar caps, but all wood species caps. Nantucket Post Cap recommends sealing all caps prior to installation. Use an exterior urethane, stain or paint to ensure long life. These should be applied to all surfaces including inside and under the base where the cap rests on the post. Many semi-transparent stains are available to keep the cedar look while protecting the caps. For a nail-free look, simply apply an exterior marine adhesive, such as 3M 5200, to the top of the post and slip the post cap over, straighten and walk away. (Stainless steel finish nails may be used).
