So, you’ve decided that you want to install some columns outside your home. Well, there are some things you should know first. Cost, appearance, load-bearing weight and how difficult they are to install are just some of the many things you’ll need to consider when making this decision.
If you’re looking for load-bearing columns, the HB&G permacast columns are your best bet. These columns are composite columns, and the benefits they have over wood columns are huge. Waterproof, weather resistant, and insect-proof, and the fact that they can be used indoors and outdoors means they are versatile, and you don’t have to worry about them getting ruined easily.
HB&G has been producing products since the late 1800s and has a variety of styles and sizes of columns, capitals and bases to choose from. The casting of the columns in the way that they are created enables them to be lighter in weight but overall stronger. Their design ensures that there are no weak spots in the columns.
Permacast columns are paintable and need no sanding as they are already smooth. Installation is also easier than people assume. Instructions come with the columns once ordered and are also available online.
