What is this top post called


My neighbor house has this post with a nice square top. What do you call this? I have 4 brick post in my home without any top. Would it be expensive to do it? Thank you.

Post cap?

Expensive? If your having to ask..chances are it would be more expensive than you want to pay. Lots of stone cutting there.

The top of the post is called a cap.

The expense would be the availability of the masonry you have. Cutting it can be done with a masonry blade attached to a circular saw (use eye protection and a dust mask) to cut the pieces to size.
