When it comes to porch columns, individual tastes, budget and needs dictate what you choose for your home. There are no shortage of options however, whether you prefer traditional, craftsman style columns, sleek, modern ones or something in between. In recent years, PVC column wraps have grown in popularity. Homeowners and builders prefer PVC over traditional wooden columns for a number of reasons.
No rot + no rust = Low maintenance: PVC porch columns are known for their durability. They are resistant to weather exposure and insect damage. Unlike wooden columns, they do not need to be sealed or treated periodically. PVC columns donâ€™t crack in severe weather and donâ€™t rust or rot when exposed to moisture. PVC columns do not need a fresh coat of paint or any kind of preventive treatment since their construction makes them resistant to most environmental damage. Maintenance is a primary consideration these days when most people simply donâ€™t have the luxury of time to invest on home improvement projects. PVC porch columns are a natural choice.
Easy to install: Installation is another major concern when time and expertise are short. PVC porch columns are once again the easiest choice. The advantage with PVC columns is that you can install them as separate columns or as column wraps around existing posts. The fact that theyâ€™re relatively lightweight and shipped as a kit makes installation easier. Our wrap kit includes inner squaring blocks, trim moldings and special adhesive to join the mitered edges. Anyone who has installed a porch column made out of PVC will agree that it doesnâ€™t get any simpler.
Style and Aesthetics: PVC columns, while durable and practical, are still great for adding visual interest and character to you space. They may be installed as corner pilasters or as porch columns and used both indoors and outdoors. You can choose from fluted, paneled and smooth surface styles and also pair your porch columns with complementary bases and capitals for an immaculate first impression.
Customization: PVC porch columns are available in many different sizes and heights and in fact, may be manufactured to your exact specifications. We offer custom porch columns that fit perfectly with your lifestyle, budget and space. Choose from tapered and non-tapered columns and let us know the height and width of your columns. Your custom columns will then be shipped to you ready to install.

So, not only can you rest assured that you wonâ€™t have to spend a lot of time and effort in maintaining your durable columns, but you also have the assurance that in the event of any such defect, you wonâ€™t have to worry about it. As long as the damage was not caused by accident, improper care, negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use, we will fix or replace the product at no cost to you, at our discretion.
As far as your porch is concerned, the question then is not â€˜why?â€™ but â€˜why not PVC porch columns?â€™
