Beam Caps

It really, really, really bugs me that some termite people will just lop off the end of a beam rather than repair it. Actually, it really, really, really bugs me that a home owner would let this happen. Luckily, the ends of the chopped beams were sound so it was simple enough to cap them. I feel much better now. After the house is painted this will be our dirty little secret.

Hi Matt, thanks for this great idea, we have a beam that has some dry rot and the inspector suggested we just chop it off, which sucks because it is such a gorgeous feature... I am totally going to steal your idea to save our beam!
