Frequently Asked Questions


How do I know the size of the column I need? 

This is a very common question that can help you decide if you need 12-foot columns. When measuring, take into account the capital (top) and plinth (bottom) as you measure from top-down or bottom-up. The column height will be seven times its diameter. And if you're measuring for a diameter, then take your desired height in inches and divide by seven. Round up or down if needed.

Do I purchase directly from HB&G?

No, we work through distributors, but you can use this locator to find a 12 ft. column dealer in your area who will be happy to assist you.

Are your fiberglass columns waterproof?

Yes. And rot-proof and insect-proof, as well. These lightweight and strong 12-foot columns are designed to be ultra-low maintenance and will carry the heavy loads needed to hold up any porch.
