Columns FAQ

Product Questions

Our faux stone column wraps and faux brick column wraps are made from high density polyurethane. The Tumbled Stone and Ashford Ledgestone and columns are made out of a very durable, medium density polyethylene. All are handcrafted by in-house artisans located here in the United States.

A faux column wrap is composed of 2 or more interlocking pieces and can be wrapped around a post or structural beam. A column sleeve is 1 piece and slides over a post or structural beam.

To allow for maximum creativity and flexibility with your installation, column caps are sold separately. Many column installations don’t require a cap.

Yes, Barron Designs offers a Class-A Fire Rated Polyurethane finish in our column Colorado. Products made of fire-rated polyurethane are more expensive and frequently have a longer lead time than products made from our standard high-density polyurethane. Please read more about the Class-A Fire Rated Polyurethane in our terms and conditions.

Yes, our faux columns are perfect for outdoor use in projects such as faux driveway columns and faux stone porch column wraps. They’re resistant to moisture, sun, fading and deterioration from pests.For all exterior projects with our texture Colorado, we do recommend our UV protective coating. This can be factory applied for an additional charge.  While the UV topcoat provides enhanced protection, some degree of fading should still be expected. We recommend re-applying a UV topcoat every 3 – 5 years to maintain an additional degree of protection. You can read more about our UV topcoat in our terms and conditions.
