replacing large porch columns - source, difficulty
The columns on our front porch are peeling. Paint has bubbled up on it and you can see that it is several layers that are coming off. GC says the wood is rotted out underneath and they need to be replaced... too much to sand all down etc and still won't be perfect he says. The columns are round, smooth 16ft high and 2ft wide. They are weight bearing but they hold up a small porch roof off the main roof. I'm getting sticker shock over the prices for the columns. Any good sources for fiberglass columns of that size that will ship to NY. We would have the GC do it but how involved a job is this - I don't want to find part of my house on the ground when I come home.
