Custom Made Stone Caps

custom column cap with round hole

Bring us your unique design for custom-made caps to get a quote. We have the capability of drilling a 3" standard hole for electrical conduit and lamp bases. Edges can be refaced after cutting if necessary. The black limestone cap above is a pyramid-shaped column cap made with an x-cut from a flat cap, then drilled out for the 3" conduit. In most cases cutting is charged for by the lineal foot, and square or round holes priced separately. If you need a cap with multiple square holes, the best way to order them is to prepare a cardboard template for each cap and bring it to us. Leave 0.25-0.4" or more all the way around any wood posts coming through the opening to allow for expansion and contraction of the wood in dry/wet seasons. We will provide detailed instructions about proper sealing. Don't think for a moment that the high-quality sealer or paint you plan to use on your wood columns will prevent wood expansion in the winter. Forces of expansion will ruin the mortar joins and/or crack the stone if not accounted for properly.
