Before purchasing, our customers always tend to have a number of questions about faux decorative columns. They want to make sure the decision they make is the right one for their property, and that they’ll be staying within their budget while getting a valuable product. Below, you’ll see the top five questions our customers ask.
1. What are the columns made of?
Most of the columns are made of high density polyurethane. This is a safe, lightweight and reliable material known for its extreme durability, environmental friendliness, and budget-friendly cost. Columns from the Ashford line are made out of medium density polyethylene (MDPE), which is another very durable, lightweight material.
2. Are they easy to install?
Yes! All you have to do is follow the simple installation directions. If you don’t wish to install them on your own, any carpenter in the phone book will be able to install the columns easily.
3. Where can they be used?
Our columns can be used anywhere you’d like the look of brick or stone. They are a great design complement for any residential or commercial application, indoors and out. Use them as driveway columns, fence posts, on your porch or deck, in your retail store, and more.
4. How long do they last?
A very long time. In fact, FauxColumns.com™ guarantees that all columns will effectively withstand normal outdoor conditions for fifteen years. The material will not crack, peel, split, or rot. All of the products are also treated with a coating of U.V.-resistant finish that will slow down fading from sun exposure. (Like anything left in the sun, however, some slight fading could occur over time. FauxColumns.com™ does not warranty against fading from the sun. For more information, please see our Warranty page.)
The columns are also waterproof, specially made to resist moisture. They’re great for all climates.
5. What do customers say?
Our customers love how the columns add to the décor of their properties, indoors and out. Here are a few of the most recent testimonials:
I just wanted to share the before and after pictures of our home after using your products. We can’t believe the difference it has made, we are so happy with it. We have received so many compliments. Most people don’t even know that it isn’t real stone. Great job and a great product!
–Thomas P., Brockway, PA
We used your product to cheer up our hair salon, we are nestled in the Canadian Rockies and your faux stacked panels and columns fits in beautiful with our rocky surroundings! We used the door trim on the corners and really love the contrast it created. -Elli’s Hair West, Canmore, Canada
As with anything, we were concerned ordering off the internet without seeing the product. But we wanted a unique look for our house that we are building ourselves. Our friends think we installed stone on our columns! Love the look and it was easy to install. –Sami Jo, Texas
