Classic Square Tapered Columns

When a customer has a project and they live in the snow, the customer needs the highest quality material that will last. Thankfully, here at, we can provide durable, long-lasting products for any weather condition!

A couple months ago, one of our sales representatives received a call from Steven from Billings, Montana in regards to columns best suited for the snow. In Steven’s case, there were plenty of sturdy columns available to choose from that would work for the project. Since he was not intending to have the columns be load bearing, the sales representative suggested the best, affordable option that would be best for the project. He recommended the Turncraft classic square column wrap for the Montana man’s home improvement venture.

Fast forward to today, Steven has since completed installing the columns and sent in a stunning picture. The column wraps are holding up nicely in the snowy land of Montana.

The square column, a timeless style is now available in expanded cellular PVC for quick, easy assembly and virtually maintenance-free! Classic Craftsman Series Columns are not prone to the same environmental damage as real wood, such as splitting or cracking. Their E-Z Lock joints will not separate due to disproportionate changes in panel dimensions. When two coats of acrylic latex paint are applied, Classic Craftsman Series Columns will deliver years of service as promised by their Limited Lifetime Warranty against rot, corrosion, and moisture damage.

Home Remodel – Brackets and Column Wraps

There are just some projects that truly catch our eye here at Architectural Depot and the before and after pictures that Gary from Spruce, Michigan are sure to make your jaw drop. With a vision in mind, Gary used the Ekena Millwork Urethane Richmond Brackets alongside tapered raised panel column wraps to change the “ugly duckling into a swan.”

The Richmond bracket is perfect for any home remodel, whether the intended use is to support up to 20lbs or purely decorative wall décor. The column wrap is just the thing to use in place of an entirely new column; its durable PVC material allows it to cover the structural post with ease while looking elegant at the same time.
