Capitol Mailbox is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 90.
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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Missing items The product is well made however the installation is not well thought out. When you order the side panels for your address there is no installation hardware. Seem odd as the top name plate comes with hardware. It requires a special trip to the hardware store and a drill to install the panels. You would think they would have figured this out already rather than the customer to do the last bit of engineering and getting hardware!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mailbox I bought this same mailbox 15 years ago. The paint was coming off in flat sheets: repainting would not have solved the problem. So I bought a new mailbox but kept the old post and mounting bracket, which were in fine shape. Several of my neighbors have bought this mailbox as well and a few of them are losing strips of the powder coat too. I like the mailbox well enough that if this one gets flaky in 15 years I'll probably get a third.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Piece! I now have the nicest mailbox on my street. High quality and classic design. Love the monogram and address font. Makes a nice statement at the foot of my driveway!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not durable I love the look and size of this mailbox. It is truly beautiful. The lifetime warranty is also a great (and necessary) thing. Unfortunately, my brackets have just broken for the third time, dropping the mailbox to the ground. It is too heavy for the brackets when it snows. I did get replacements at 50% off the last time and a free mailbox due to the damage it sustained, but it took months to figure it out between Frontgate and the manufacturer to finally get everything I needed to replace it. When I did, it was beautiful again. Not sure how long it might take this time to get brackets - they should sell or have them available as a individual item versus having the purchase the pole with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mailbox is nice but The mailbox and everything that comes with it are very pretty, however, the monogram letter that goes on the front is done in such an ornate way that one can't actually make out what the letter is. Very messy looking and takes away from the personalization of the mailbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Belle of the Block My Husband didn't want a mail box at our home and was in charge of stopping at the post office to get our mail. Well after 18 years, that wasn't working anymore and I finally put my foot down. His only request was that it better be a nice one. I knew I wouldn't have a problem when I purchased this one. It is beautiful, and the craftsmanship is superb! My mail carrier said it was the nicest box on his route. I highly recommend this product. I would have attached a picture if it would have been an option.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Capitol Monogrammed Mailbox We had our first Capitol Monogrammed mailbox for less than year before the exterior coating started to chip off. I contacted Frontgate and after some jumping through hoops was able to have it replaced with a new one. We have had our 2nd mailbox for about 10 years now. The coating has held up good but now the front door has broken off. I am very disappointed in the product. It was very expensive to begin with and should hold up better in my opinion. I could have purchased 20 cheap mailboxes for the price of this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love IT! I purchased my new home about a year ago. I fell in love with my neighbors mailbox. I had to ask her where she got it. She told me Frontgate. We live in a very nice neighborhood and the old owner of this house had s hideous faded green Rubbermaid mailbox that leaned more to the left, than straight. The mailbox is pricey, but I couldn't find ANY mailbox that came close to this one. It's been a year and I bought it for myself for my birthday! It's GORGEOUS! It's perfect, it's big inside and I love it. My only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner! I had my handyman put it together and place it where it's supposed to go. He didn't have any issues and had it up and together within 90 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mail box but..... This will be our third time replacing this mailbox. The first one ordered in 2006, the door broke off our mail carrier came to my door with the door in her hand this happened in 2008 . Our send one lasted from 2008 - 2016 this time the pin that holds the door broke off on one side. And shall I mention the magnetic closure freezes shut in the winter making it difficult to open, we live in Hampton NH. Also I ordered the white one and after a few years in the elements the paint does start to peel off, disappointing. But I have to say the customer service at frontgate are very helpful and have replaced the mailbox the first time and hopefully the second. All in all it is a very nice looking, sturdy, heavy mailbox, a bit of a pain to have to change it every few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Box I replaced my older worn out mailbox with this stylish box. It's heavy duty well made mailbox. Easy to follow instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat purchase This is a quality substantial generously sized mailbox. This is also the second Capitol style mailbox purchased. The first mailbox served us for several years. The door hinge pin finally broke on one side. It is a heavy door. We replaced the mailbox with this new purchase. ' As luck would have it, a friend looked at the damaged box while installing the new and said that he could fix the hinge. Now we have two usable mailboxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mail box i live in a rural area of virginia in a home built in 1818 and needed a mail box which was deserving of the location and period in history.at frontgate we were able to get a design we are extremely pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mail box Waited years to find the right mailbox. Found this one & had to save money for it as it was very expensive for me. So pleased when I finally had it in place. It did well for several years. Then the finish began to peel off. So disappointed as it had been so expensive. Saved money again & decided to give it another try. I live in central NY so maybe the harsh winters had something to do with it. If that were the case, it should have been addressed in catalogue description. It is now in place & it is beautiful. Hope it last longer than the first one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, well-made mailbox This is my third mailbox. The first one was run over by a plow truck, the next one had the door pulled off by vandals. Other than that, I think this mailbox would last for many years. Due to the cost, this is probably the last one I will buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mailbox but somewhat difficult assembly This is a very nice mailbox, pretty, nice and heavy, feels like it will last a long time. One issue I had right off the bat though, was that one of the threaded holes in the topper was angled fairly severely and that made it very difficult to mount the topper. The holes in the top of the mailbox to mount the topper are only slightly larger than the screws that go through them, so any deviation in the angle of those screws makes mounting the topper very tricky. Which kind of leads to my second issue, not so much a complaint, but words of advice. When you drill the holes to attach the address plates and monogrammed front plate, use a drill bit one size larger than is detailed in the instructions or you will again have a very difficult time lining up the screws with the holes.
