Spruce up deck posts with post covers

Consider breaking up the wooden look of your deck with faux stone post covers. Post covers help match the look of your deck to a stone house, to a backyard with stone pavers or to a Deckorators Postcoversstone wall.

Adding faux stone post covers provide a realistic high-end look. Post covers are an easy way to simulate dry stacked stone and enhance your decks appearance, and at a fraction of the cost of real stone. The high-density polyurethane covers realistically simulate the look of a dry stacked stone post. Matching deck post caps add a finishing touch.

Faux stone post covers easily install over 6x6 or 4x4 treated wood posts and are available in several colors.

Post covers integrate easily into virtually any deck railing system or porch design. They work perfectly with wood, vinyl or composite railing.

Deck post covers are also perfect for applications under a raised deck to disguise the plain appearance of pressure treated lumber posts.

I like the stone post covers. I would like to know how we can enclose a support corner post 8' tall with the stone covers.

Deckorators Postcovers are stackable and are easily installed on either 4X4 or 6X6 deck support or rail posts. Note: 4X4 posts do require a converter kit, which is sold separately. Deckorators Postcovers come in 42” lengths. Assuming you need to cover a full eight-foot support post, you will need to stack two full-length post covers and roughly a one-foot section from a third post cover. When installed below the deck (as show in photo above), our post covers are intended to be slid over and fastened to the support post prior to the installation of perimeter joists. Please refer to the Deckorators Postcover installation instructions: http://www.deckorators.com/Deck_Modules/PostcoverInstall.htm http://www.deckorators.com/Deck_Modules/pdf/PostcoverInstall.pdf For additional information, call 800-332.5724.

Kyle, Deckorators postcovers are intended to be installed during the initial deck railing installation. If you have a railing that can be disassembled it may be possible to add the new style postcovers to your deck railing. If you are looking to add postcovers below the deck surface on the main vertical support beams you would need to cut away one side (inside the post facing the home) of the postcover then reattach with epoxy or fasteners.
