Caps are normally mortared in place. We recommend using a high quality product to do this. The climate will help you choose on the type of mortar that is best for the job. A Laguna Precast sales rep will help or recommend products for your climate after you pay for the order. Cutting is usually minimal when installing caps, there is going to be areas like corners or ends of wall lengths to cut. When placeing caps on long straight leanghts of walls be shure to use a string line. If you don't know what a string line is use a contractor/mason for the job!

Laguna Precast products are manufactured in three different types of molds, fiberglass, latex and silicon. Each of these materials give a different texture to the finished product. We use silicon molds for smooth finished products with less details in them. Examples of silicon molded products are wall caps, (307, 308 and 309) window sills and surrounds our Foamcast� products, (404, 405 and 406) are good examples. Latex is best for items with fine details such as planters with designs, (812,813, and 817) and fountain parts that have lifelike designs such as the Palm tree fountains and also fountains, (901, 904 and 908). Finally fiberglass molds are used to mass produce with less cost and labor. They yield a texture that is slightly courser than silicon or latex. Our products that are made with fiberglass molds are most balustrade pins, table sets, benches and some other examples are many of the posts & columns. Laguna Precast uses the most cost effective materials to achieve the most attractive look for our products. Be sure to click on the pictures to see each product close up view.
All of our new Caps and Finials are made with silicon molds to give them a smooth texture. We are always making new molds and are currently expanding this category.
