You’ve landed on my original (soon to be legacy) Custom Beam Caps page. The new site is up and running with interactive galleries and videos! There's no need to change your bookmarks; I'll be transfering my domain thebeamguy.com in the near future. In the meantime, please go to my
updated Custom Beam Caps page.

Custom Beam Caps
Often, inspected beams will reveal no decay and will require no repair. However, "beam caps" are frequently requested as a preventative measure against the moisture penetration that can lead to dry rot. A beam cap is a galvanized sheet metal cover, that is custom fit and installed atop a roof beam. Each cap is primed and painted (three coats total), and is sealed to the adjacent roof framing to protect against wind driven rain.
