Answer: 
If the column is too short, you can add a filler at the bottom or top. This would be something you provide that adds the additional height you need. On one application I need five more inches in height. I added a 2'x12"x12" concrete pad at the bottom (it was setting on concrete patio), and a 3" thick wood spacer at the top. I made both of these spacers a couple of inches wider than the top and and base Read More

I made both of these spacers a couple of inches wider than the top and and base that is made by the manufacture. They were painted the same color as the column and look like they are part and parcel to it. Read Less

Answer: 
No, this specific product does not come in two pieces. There is such a product but you will need to search on "column wraps" to get some options.

Answer: 
The caps you mention are for decorative purposed only and are not part of the column itself. These are purchased separately and added to the column during installation. You can readily shorten the columns as many customers do.

Answer: 
This is a load bearing column. However, it is one piece, and this particular product does not come in two half's. There are other products available that are primarily for decoration that come in two half's. Search the internet for such.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outsanding Product and Durability I installed five of these columns across a very large concrete patio (2,000 sf) off the back of our house in 2011. The elegance it gave to the setting was worth everything! They have drawn many complements from our guests over the years. I installed the base on a 2"x12:"x12" concrete pad that was anchored to the patio concrete with rebar and construction adhesive, making the installation impervious to water, even though rainwater flows around them.. Two metal brackets were used inside the sealed column, and they were coated with plastic before sealing. After 5 years no deterioration of any kind, and a recent re-paint job makes them look new again. Great product, and no maintenance except for a paint job every few years. Could not be more pleased with the product or the price. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I like it. The columns look fantastic, but they didn't start out that way. They are perfectly round and the cap and base are shaped well, but the seam was way too obvious and was on both sides so couldn't be hidden. It had the look of pvc, not exactly fitting the Grecian feel. so we sprayed the entire unit with surecrete wall spray so it would look like stone. After 3 coats, the seam still showed a bit, but since the texture was nice, I figured few wold notice the seam. It came out so well, we may even buy a few more. July 18, 2014
