Architecturally speaking, a column cover or wrap is used to hide any structural supports such as wood posts, I-beams and lally columns. Not only are column wraps created with this purpose in mind, but they can easily be split into covers too – thus making them both aesthetically pleasing and decorative! For most of you, this is exactly what you’re looking for.
While these wraps aren’t load bearing or structural themselves, they serve an extremely important role by creating beautiful designs around the structure itself.
We were just recently working on a home and it turned out amazing. It can be tough searching for the perfect column covers or decorative. Some companies specialize in the manufacturing columns that come ready-to-install as two halves; they often have them available as they’re factory assembled. We’re a big fan of these, especially the PVC column covers

Column Wraps Add Instant Porch Appeal
Porch column wraps can vastly improve the look of your home’s exterior and increase the street appeal of your home, making them a great investment and tool for a porch makeover. What a lot of people don’t realize, they can also protect the existing column?
The best thing about porch column wraps is that they can easily be removed and replaced, just in case you’ve grown tired of the color and style, or because they have sustained damage from external elements. Either way, porch posts are an easy way to upgrade the exterior of your home without having to replace the porch posts themselves.
There’s a few reasons why we recommend using PVC column wraps:
- PVC is a low-maintenance material, very easy to clean.
- PVC looks excellent, has many different styles to suit your home’s aesthetic.
- PVC is also highly water-resistant, great if you’re located where it rains/snows a lot.
- PVC is durable, it will not rot, it is resistant to insect burrowing, and it will not split or warp.
