Capitol Mailbox is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Monogram letter is indiscernible The gold monogram letter has so much background ivy or whatever in the pattern, you can't even see the letter. Overall, the mailbox looks pretty cheap and poorly constructed. Worth about half of what Frontgate is charging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from finish did not hold up I purchased this a couple of years ago. As long as we lived on a residential street, that did not get salted it was good. we moved, to a busy street that got salted during the winter and bought a new address plate. The finish on the address plate and parts of the box started to flake off. I would buy this mailbox again only if I lived in the deep south where there was no winter and limited traffic on my street.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not stand the test of time I own two of these mailboxes. BOTH of them have peeling/bubbling paint within 3 years of ownership. For an expensive mailbox, I expected it to last at least 10-15 years

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I own this mailbox After 6 years, the paint started peeling terribly and needs to be replaced. It's pretty expensive, so I am disappointed that it would only last this long. Note: Only the box and the newspaper slot bracket are peeling. Not the post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant mailbox A bit pricey, but this is a great mailbox. In this day and age, when most mailboxes are that awful plastic, this stands out for its class and elegance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Capitol Mailbox I bought this mailbox for our new home because it looked sturdy and elegant. But every time it rains, the mailbox leaks and all my mail gets wet. I've tried weatherstrip but it's not helping. I don't know what else to do?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the mailbox but quality over time not great This mailbox is beautiful, a real eye catcher. We purchased the mailbox, post & base 4 years ago and love it. However, the color black has faded & the base paint peeled off in sheets. Disappointed! For the amount of money paid, I expect more from Frontgate!

the reviews mention that the paint doesn't hold up in the north east where streets get salted regularly - what's the warranty on the mailbox and post, and is there something better that hold up to winter weather

Post

I have an existing post. Will this fit any post? Please see my attached pics with my current mailbox. I need to know before i order
Asked by: DebbieMus
Thank you for your interest in the Capitol Mailbox. This mail box is designed to be mounted on a standard 4"x4" post or on the Capitol Post & Bracket (14803). To use your existing pole, you will most likely need to drill holes into your existing bracket to match the holes in this mailbox. We would also recommend measuring your bracket to ensure it is wide enough to fit this mailbox. Please note that altering this mailbox to fit your current post and bracket could void the warranty.

Can I use this mailbox with a different base?

I am thinking of buying this mailbox. Can it be installed on a different post other than the one it is shown with? Does it matter if it is not the same manufacturer? The post I have has a newspaper holder and flower box. Will the assembly instructions show how to secure to another base?
Asked by: Nphin
I ordered the mailbox only, hoping it would attach to my existing post. That did not work...so I ordered the Frontgate post and was happy with the improved quality over my current plastic post cover.

My Street number is 6 characters.

My street number is 6 characters (38W548). Can this be fit into the first line? It is only allowing 5 characters to be input to the form. I am replacing this same mailbox and I was able to have 6 characters at that time.
Asked by: 38W548
Thank you for your interest in the Capitol Monogrammed Mailbox. The first line of the personalization can be 1 - 5 characters; 6 characters cannot be used. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
