Concrete or stone Post Caps for concrete posts?

Posted by wynswrld98 (My Page) on

I want to build 2 concrete posts to frame the entryway up to the front of my home, face them with a stone veneer and put post caps on top with cutouts for post lamp.

I saw Eldorado Stone's concrete post cap and was unimpressed -- color varied all over pieces (tan to grey when was supposed to be grey), quality control looked poor, looking for better quality options but am not finding much on the internet.

Anyone know of any good suppliers/manufacturers of stone/concrete post caps?

RE: Concrete or stone Post Caps for concrete posts?

Thanks. I was in a Mutual Materials today and they only carry one style in 20" or 22" and I'm still not very pleased with it at all. I've seen nicer stuff out and about (not at retailers but at shopping centers/etc.) that has a sheen to it, looks much nicer than the stuff I'm seeing from Mutual Materials and Eldorado Stone and with the sheen I think it would keep its finish much better than the raw concrete stuff which doesn't look good right out of the gate, much of what I see is already discolored, chipped, etc. Not a good start.
