What Are Pier Caps?

A pier cap is made from either concrete or stone, and they can be found placed on top of walls or either side of a gate. They help to shield the wall or gate from harsh weather and bad conditions.


While they are mostly used for protective purposes, they can be a good way to elevate the aesthetic of your home. With lots of pier cap design choices, there is a lot you can do with them to match the style of your home. Keep reading to find the main benefits of choosing pier caps.


Benefits Of Pier Caps


● Protection against harsh weather - They are an extremely stylish and effective way of protecting your walls and your home's exterior from harsh weather conditions, and erosion over time.


● Stability in your walls - Pier caps are also great for reinforcing the stability of your walls, and helping the structure of the wall to stay secure.


● They create aesthetic value - They can enhance or maintain a certain aesthetic and style for your home, making them a visually pleasing addition. They have a luxurious and expensive feel to them, which could suit your home perfectly, or be just the thing to take it to the next level.


● They can add property value - Installing pier caps, alongside their aesthetic value, can also increase the overall value of your property, which can be useful in the event that you decide to sell your home.


● They can be used with stone copings - Pier caps are regularly used in conjunction with stone wall copings, which works brilliantly with older houses and walls, maintaining the character of older properties.
