Fibre glass

Columns can be made from fibre glass. They have become a popular trend among architects and contractors. This is because they are attractive and have resistance to impact.

The fibre glass columns can be either square or round, ridged or smooth. They can be used to design column styles that are classic. The fibre glass columns can be shaped and painted the way that you want. In addition, they do not require that much maintenance.

Aluminium columns

These ones appear elegant and are not expensive as compared to the other columns. They come in a variety of styles and can be suitable for your Florida house. The aluminium columns have the capacity to bear the load of the roof.

Precast stone

These are a replacement of the natural stone columns.  Technology has enabled the recreation of the ancient Roman columns without using the natural stones. These stones are less expensive than the actual ones and less labour intensive.

They also do not have hidden cracks like the natural stone.
