are there alternates to pvc wrap on treated porch posts?

springplanterOctober 11, 2013

We are finishing a screened porch built by contractor with treated lumber. He plans to face the posts with pvc but as far as I can tell that is only available in white and we definitely do not want white posts.

We would like a more natural look or at least a brown color. Any ideas as to alternates we can suggest?

If you like the natural look, why cover the posts with anything?

Could always wrap them with aluminum (would need bent with a brake), comes in a lot of different colors. But, it defeats the look of natural.

Most wraps that I've seen can be painted. That will give you more choices in color vs buying brown pvc.
