Frequently Asked Questions


How do I measure a porch for my 8-foot columns? 

This is always a popular question when designing a space for 8 ft. columns, and here's the answer: The shaft height will be seven times the diameter. If you're measuring for a bottom diameter, then take your desired height in inches and divide by seven. Round up or down if needed.

How do I size columns to give proper "weight" to the front of my house? 

Great question! While architectural differences may necessitate options other than  8-foot porch columns, the modern short answer is you need one inch of diameter for each foot of height.

What is the best material for a porch column? 

The answer is simple: it's up to you. Design features, look, feel and personal taste all factor in when you're buying 8-foot columns. As does the need for load-bearing or non-load-bearing columns. If you buy top-quality columns from a trusted manufacturer like HB&G, you're sure to get the best for your home.
