Discover Classic & Artistic PermaCast Column Bases & Caps

PermaCast column bases and caps not only provide essential structural stability for a column, they also accentuate a column’s overall aesthetics—as well as the structures they are attached to. Available in a range of both round tapered and non-tapered options, HB&G offers a unique selection of PermaCast column caps and bases that are purchasable in paired sets or in separate styles. We also offer your choice of decorative or load-bearing column capitals and bases so that you can build your purchase around your structural and stylistic considerations. And best of all, since PermaÇast column bases and capitals are crafted from an innovative polyurethane material, they are relentlessly resistant to rotting, weather elements, and insects. With a popular array of classic and artistic designs to choose from, give your columns the support and style they need with interior and exterior PermaCast column bases and caps from HB&G.


What are Column Caps Used For?

Column capitals (also known as column caps or column tops) are the key surface area at the top portion of a column where a structure or load (e.g., a porch or pergola) meets the column itself. Thus, a column capital is critical to the strength and stability of both the column and the structure it is attached to. Available in both load-bearing and decorative options, PermaCast exterior column caps can be found in distinct—and often beautifully ornamental—styles ranging from Roman Ionic to Greek Ionic to Temple of the Winds and more. With HB&G’s popular collection of columns, you can create many unique combinations of column caps and column structures that appeal to your decorative tastes and structural needs.


What are the Benefits of PermaCast Column Bases?

PermaCast column bases reliably support standard and decorative PermaCast columns, but it is their additional characteristics and value points that make them so universally popular. With their proprietary blend of fiber-reinforced polymers, PermaCast column bases are rot-proof, weatherproof, and insect-proof. And to add in even more value, PermaCast exterior column bases are delivered with a limited lifetime warranty and offered in an array of attractive designs. At HB&G, you will find PermaCast column base styles ranging from Tuscan and Doric to Colonial and Attic, which will allow you the flexibility to create the perfect pairing between your tapered or non-tapered columns and your standard or decorative column bases.
