Capitol Monogrammed Mailbox 3.8 5 50 51
Replacement base - paint peeled off original This was a replacement base - the paint peeled off in big chunks after just over a year (when the warranty ran out). The mailbox & the post are fine. I would hope this new one will last but I doubt it... June 27, 2013
Tough Mailbox installation This is a great looking sturdy product but not a mailbox the average homeowner can install by themselves. NONE of the pre drilled holes matched up and they all had to be re drilled to make them fit. Certainly not an easy task and requires proper drill bits and an electric drill. A wooden post has to also be purchased and concrete has to be mixed and poured around to keep stable. After several hours we finally finished. Looks great but make sure you have help to install. June 5, 2013
It lasted total of 3 years It was gorgeous for the 1st year but the second year the paint literally lifted off in huge flakes. The 3rd year the hinged door broke and now we have to replace it because the piece that broke was plastic. If the door had not broken I would have taken the time to repaint it but now I'm going to replace it with a less expensive version from the local DIY store. Granted we live in S. FL but I never expected it to last less than 5 years. May 22, 2011
Not made for winter weather After having this beautiful mailbox up for one winter in the Midwest, the paint is all blistered!! I can't imagine what it will look like after a 2nd winter!! If you live in an area where you get snow and they salt the roads, reconsider this mailbox!! It was beautiful before it was put up! July 31, 2014
Very Poor Quality We bought this mailbox a couple of years ago (not cheap by the way). Although it does look great, the door hinge broke. We can't get it fixed and will have to buy another mailbox. Think twice before you invest in this one. Not good quality and not what we expected from Frontgate. April 25, 2014
DID NOT LAST I have never before in all of my many internet purchases felt strongly enough to write a review. But this mailbox was such a dissapontment. The paint peeled and the pin holding the door fell out. Do not waste your money! July 24, 2013
Save your money - this mailbox does not last My husband and I have been Frontgate customers for many years. ALL the products we've purchased, EXCEPT the Capitol Mongrammed Mailbox, have been of quality craftsmanship. We are extremely disappointed in this mailbox; for the price, I expected it to last for years. For the first three years, I loved the mailbox, yet it's now a costly eyesore because the finish became dull and blistered after three years. We live in a moderate, MW climate, and I expected this mailbox to last much longer. May 24, 2013
Very disappointed! I've ordered 5 of these mailboxes over the last few years. None of them have held up well. Three went to my children. One door fell off almost immediately. My son in law removed the initial plaque on the front and fixed the door himself. The other two had the finish peel off in less than a year. The one I ordered for myself had the door fall off which I returned for repair. Then the finish started to peel off. We built a brick column around it finally thinking thhat would solve the problem. Then the door fell of again. The ONlY reason I ordered the same box again is because We needed a box that would fit the hole we have for it in the brick column. That's why we did not add any personalization. The plaque on front is just too heavy for the door. April 19, 2013
Initially proud, now embarrassed My wife and I have been Frontgate customers since 1995. We have purchased numerous products for our homes and have come to associate Frontgate with uncompromising quality. We purchased the Capitol Mono Mailbox in 2007. We were really impressed. This mailbox stood out in our neighborhood and really complimented our home. After the 2nd winter, we began to notice the paint was flaking along the center top ridge. The flaking began around the unused screws used to mount the mailbox topper. Years three and four this became more pronounced and began to spread to the corners. Unfortunately, the mailbox is an eyesore and an embarrassment today. We purchased another today, but before it is installed we will take it to a local paint shop to have it clear coated. Frontgate, you should check in to the quality control of your supplier. A quick clear coat at the factory could solve these problems. As you loyal customers we LOVED this product. We still do, but painting our mailbox every two years is not how we define hassle free. Brian St. Joseph, MO PS As soon as the new mailbox comes back from the paint booth, I will return the old mailbox to you, so that you can use it as an example to the manufacturer. March 24, 2013
Mailbox does not last This mailbox is beautiful and sturdy when first received but do not expect it to last. We too have been the envy of the neighborhood, but in 4 years we are on our second box. The door broke after three years (would not stay shut). Now the paint is falling of the replacement we received a year ago. Terrible quality! Don't be deceived! January 28, 2013
Worst Purchase Ever from Frontgate This mail box was absolutely beautiful when I received it. After four years the paint has a dull sheen, but that really does not bother me. What has me distressed is the fact that the left side of the door is broken and I cannot seem to repair it. There is a round plastic piece and metal round bar that secures the door and it always falls out and the door hangs to one side when it is opened. I purchased the mailbox, post, newspaper holder, and name plate; very expensive and too much money to pay for a defective box. I am very disappointed with this purchase and I have made many from Frontgate. June 21, 2011
Does not last After only one year and one winter - the mailbox is rusting and the paint is peeling I would not get this, unless you like painting each year May 3, 2011
