A fence cap is a protective board that extends along the entire top section of a fence. It is normally a 2″ x 6″ that lays flat along the top of the picket. It not only adds an element of style and value to the outside of a home, it also helps protect the fence. Every time it rains or snows water runs down the inside of the pickets and rails. A combination of moisture, humidity, heat and freezing temperatures is what eventually causes boards to rot even if they are stained. A fence cap protects the top of a fence which is where pickets generally begin to split and rot due to exposure. A fence with a cap will add some additional material and labor expense but is well worth the investment.
