You Can Create A Beautiful Faux Stone Column.
Even with the great advantages the internet provides, today there are homeowners and business owners who want to create a faux stone column and post wrap accent but do not know the different product options.

You can do much better than this.
We have just added two new size post wraps that easily address most size columns needed. 15” wide and 36” wide. You may also choose between 36” or 72” high. If needed, you may stack one on top of the other to reach higher elevations.
With polyurethane column wraps you just snap the four panels together, glue them and use a few nails or screws and you’re done, for many years.
When it comes to covering the top, there are some very nice options for caps.
You may choose between two main sizes and a combination of solid or split caps with two size opening.
Some projects require covering an existing post that is made of a 6×6 or 4×4 wood pole. You may choose a close cap with each of those openings.
You do not have these options with concrete, cast stone.
