Installation and maintenance
When installing the finials it is also advisable to pre-dril the caps before screwing them down to help prevent the timber from splitting. This is especially the case in hot weather, when the wood can harden and is more prone to splitting. The double ended screw supplied will fix the post cap onto the finial. Normal screws will be required to secure the square cap down onto the top of the fence post. (Not supplied with the finial).
As with all timber, over time the wood will begin to weather in the elements and turn silver/grey. This is perfectly normal. It is a good idea to purchase some fence paint and treat the wood. Ideally this should be done every year or 2 as required to help prevent the timber from rotting over a period of years. Although the timber is pressure treated, over time the elements can penetrate this layer of treatment. Correct maintenance of your garden fence is very important to keep the wood in top condition.
