Rated 5 out of 5Â by Surprised Awesome and easy do it yourself
I needed to replace 3 wood columns that were in bad shape on my concrete porch. These were perfect and installation couldn't have been easier. Each column arrived in a fairly flat box and needed to be assembled. The men on my volunteer crew all thought I would need 4x4 inserts, metal plates, and lots of heavy tools. None of those items were needed. Snapping the column together took a mallet but once together - the seam isn't even visible.

This product is load bearing! It might not look strong, but it will support 23000 lbs. If you are using it for load bearing on wood beams, order the load plates so the thin aluminum doesn't sink into the wood.

I looked for porch columns. I found these on Home Depot website so I ordered them. When I got to the store, I found that they are made very cheaply and are only a cosmetic column. They will not support a load.
