Natural stone wall capping is a unique masonry item designed to provide a protective top surface for any type of wall-like structure. Wall capping is typically installed to overhang the wall slightly to provide a drip edge for water to flow off the top surface. This prevents moisture from permeating into and potentially damaging the wall structure itself. Wall caps, such as our Newcastle sandstone cap, can also provide an attractive finishing accent for indoor or outdoor walls. Our Newcastle Wall Cap has a cut top, bottom and flamed sides (flaming is a masonry process that super-heats a cut stone face to produce a natural textured look). Our wall capping is available in widths up to 24", with each piece a minimum of 2" thick, and flamed on all four sides. K2 Stone capping can also be tailored to fit your specific application requirements.
Learn More About Newcastle Wall CapNatural stone is an extremely durable building material, which provides a low maintenance option for exterior finishes. Newcastle Wall Caps will not fade or warp over time, which are common problems with traditional wood trims and even concrete. When correctly installed, stone wall capping products can help extend the life span of natural stone treatments indefinitely.
On outdoor elevations, low walls can effectively define a principle entrance in conjunction with a porch, veranda or some other kind of overhang to protect the front door. Using Newcastle Wall Capping to finish off the top edge, not only protects the stone wall from dripping water, it looks great as well. The same treatment can be applied to low retaining walls outlining outdoor kitchens and lounge areas, or around planting beds, heritage trees, fire pits or pool enclosures. Designed to complement thinstone, full bed and other custom natural stone products, Newcastle Wall Cap can add a professional masonry touch to many landscaping features around the home.
