A: Thank you for your interest in this product! These columns can be installed without a post. The column will be mounted with an L bracket directly into the ground and the header. The cap and base will slide into place and conceal these brackets. Good luck on your project!
A: Thank you for your interest in this product! The column would come complete with a column shaft, capital, and base. They do not include mounting hardware. In order to mount the columns, you would need L-brackets, screws, and bolts. You would bolt the brackets onto the column, then screw them into the ceiling and floor. Wood screws should suffice for the brackets going into the ceiling. You may consider using tapcon screws if your floor would be concrete. Best of luck on your project!
A: Thank you for your interest in this product! This column comes unassembled in multiple pieces. It is intended for a load bearing installation, so it offers reinforced joints. You would use a load bearing column to replace existing posts as long as it is not a free standing application, such as, a pergola or gazebo. If you intend to wrap the column around the existing post, then consider model number, EA0608FNPSAEMEM. This option would also come in multiple pieces but the joints would not be reinforced, so it would not be load bearing. As well, the capital and bases would be pre-split to reassemble around the old posts. Best of luck on your project!
