Stone-style driveway entry columns can make a standout first impression.

Faux stone driveway entry columns offer versatility and practicality

One of the most popular uses for our faux columns is in the driveway. They’re a great option for adding impressive stone-style columns, gateposts and fenceposts without having to buy and build with real brick or stone. You can slide them over and attach them to wooden posts in the ground; and once installed it’s practically impossible to tell that the columns are not the real thing.

And, in some respects, they’re actually better than the real thing. For a start, they’re cheaper and easier to install. A row of these columns can be purchased for a fraction of the price of real stone; and they will take just hours to install, instead of days.

Thanks to the ease of installation, these wrought iron gates are incredibly sturdy; even though the columns at either end are faux!

And, in addition, there are a lot of cool things you can do with them that you can’t do with real stone.

In terms of a driveway, for example, you can use the hollow space inside the posts to install automatic gate openers, intercoms, cameras or more.

We also offer styles that feature built-in mailboxes, which are another popular addition to the driveway.

The columns are also great for use on fences, because you can cut them to attach fencing in a variety of different ways.

Fencing can be installed seamlessly, whether it's wooden or metal.

Made from high density polyurethane foam, the material can be cut with a regular wood saw and altered to perfectly align with wooden or metal fencing.

The best part about working for FauxColumns.com is discovering all the amazing things customers do with our products – we’re still learning what can be done with them! Lightweight and versatile, the columns are great tools for imaginative people; and we’re always blown away with how they’re used in new and innovative ways.
