Lighted post caps offer many choices
We have a wide range of post caps for the client to make the best choice.
The decorative selection adds the beauty that you will really appreciate on a summer’s evening. A good example is the Copper Plated Prestige. A few of these on your posts will catch the eye and get the neighbors talking, in a good way.
The Cape May offers a more subtle effect but is still as beautiful. You can install these along the deck fence and light up the area all year round.
The choice of solar and LED lights will surely please every taste and match every garden design.
Installing lighted post caps is easy
We often get clients complaining that it is too late to install lights after building the deck. This is not true, and it surprises the same clients when we show them how to do the work.
Installing lighted post caps is one of those straightforward DIY jobs which have excellent results.
You first attach the adapter on the head of the fence post. The light cap just clicks into place and will stay secure through all types of weather.
It really is as simple as all that for installing the lighted post caps.
The extra security and safety are welcome
We hear from clients that they can’t use the deck at night because of safety concerns.
They worry about older people falling on the steps or not seeing the deck furniture; this can be a worry for every age group. Younger kids can fall when running around in the dark of the early evening, after the sun goes down.
Feeling secure on a dark deck is another fear.
Installing a row of lighted post caps will solve these problems. Adding lights on the steps and around rails will help too, of course.
Now people can see where they are going and what they are doing. Knowing too that the lights offer plenty of security is another big advantage.
You can see from the house who is on your deck when it is lit up.
Now that is a real security benefit.
Solar lighted post caps are free to run
When you install outdoor lights, you may worry about increased utility bills.
Solar lights run off the sun’s energy.
The battery charges during the day and does not need a lot of direct sunlight.
Most batteries will last around 8 to 12 hours, so through the night.
