Vinyl Wraps for Porch Columns
Vinyl wraps usually consist of from 2 to 4 sections that overlap and are sealed with a special adhesive like OSI or PVC rated silicone. Other models snap together and are adjustable to accommodate various inside dimensions. Wraps are ideal for transforming the look of your porch or for hiding old discolored posts. Another option is vinyl column sleeves that fit over standard wood columns. They come in several different colors and are normally used in new construction or in extensive remodeling projects.
Cellular Vinyl Porch Columns
When selecting non-structural porch columns we highly recommend choosing cellular PVC rather than vinyl. The difference is important. Cellular PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a synthetic material like vinyl but it looks, feels, and sounds like wood. We found the following columns in Cellular PVC and believe you will like them too!
