Pier Caps


A high quality and consistent finish combined with a variety of styles make Hughes’ Pier Caps the popular choice for residential and commercial applications.

A Pier Cap finishes off the look of the pier as well as offering a vital function in protecting the pier below from the harsh elements such as rain and frost. Rain is deflected on all sides away from the pier, and all of our pier copings include a drip line on the underside to protect the pier even more.

Plain and moulded pillar caps are available and in stock.  There are 3 types of Wall Caps available to match in with the type of Pier Capping you choose.

Many of our pier caps will also suit our pier cap toppers (Acorn, Spire, Ball), please ask our sales staff for more information.

Sizing requirements:
You need to size up a pier cap, so if your pier measures 27″ square, you’ll need a 31-32″ pier cap (leaving approx 2″ each side of the pier), again, our sales team will be more than happy to help you figure out what you need.
