Finishing off your natural stone project with custom capping ensures professional masonry polish. It can also protect stone features from the elements. K2 Stone's Mitered Stone Post Caps are cut at a 90 degree angle to accommodate a structural post within the center and are specifically designed to provide a protective top surface for that post. They're made from four separate pieces of stone and typically overhang the post slightly to provide a drip edge for water to flow off of the top surface, preventing it from permeating into the post structure.
