Whether your remodeling project or house addition includes interior or exterior columns – decorative or structural – using fiberglass columns will save you money on both purchase and installation and on long-term maintenance costs. Fiberglass columns are lighter and less expensive than wood columns, so they are easier to install. Fiberglass columns also resist insects and mold. The fact that they are waterproof also means they will not have to be painted regularly. Dirt can simply be washed off the column. Fiberglass columns are perfect in high-humidity regions and indoors. They are available through most home improvement stores in several styles. Various styles of capitals are also available to match the columns.
