What is a pier cap?

A pier cap is a protective and decorative element placed on top of a pier or column, often made of cast stone, to enhance aesthetics and provide weather resistance.

What is the purpose of the capping placed on top of a brick pier?

The purpose of the capping on top of a brick pier is to provide protection from weather elements and enhance the pier's aesthetic appeal. It acts as a protective cover, preventing water ingress and preserving the structural integrity of the pier while adding a finishing touch to the overall design.

What is the difference between capping and coping stones?

The terms are often used inter changeably and the definitions are not strict. Capping stones are used to cap walls or pillars and run flush to the wall, providing a protective layer. Coping Stones are designed to cover the top of a wall enhancing aesthetics. The coping stone overhangs the edge of the wall to incorporate a drip channel to manage water runoff.

What is the difference between a coping and a parapet cap?

A coping is a protective cap placed on top of a wall, typically to prevent water damage, while a parapet cap specifically refers to the coping on a parapet wall, which is a low protective barrier at the edge of a roof or balcony.
