You could slap on a fresh coat of paint, make necessary repairs to fascia boards and gutters, add or replace window shutters and paint those old porch posts, or you might consider some simple front porch renovations that can make a dramatic improvement.
For a major improvement, without much expense and very little work, decorative column wraps might be just what you’re looking for. They can transform ordinary wood or metal post into elegant architectural columns in a matter of minutes, at a surprisingly affordable price. Column covers are available in nearly a dozen different styles designed to compliment any home – square or craftsman – plain, fluted, raised panel, and recessed panel. With all of these options, it’s easy to find just the right amount of detail for your specific project.
Fabricated from durable PVC, column wraps won’t rot, split, chip, or warp. They will never rust or absorb water, they’re insect resistant, and virtually maintenance free. Vinyl column wraps can be applied to old wooden or unsightly metal post on porches, overhangs, carports, walkways and more, by simply wrapping them around the existing support posts and adhering them together. Column wrap kits usually include column covers, traditional caps and bases, adhesive caulk and instruction sheets, making installation a breeze. You can add most column wraps, start to finish, under 30 minutes.
“A porch is the place where we go to escape the stress of daily life and take the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy life. It is also a great way to showcase your home and increase its value. The last thing you want to worry about is the work required to keep your porch beautiful,” said Tim Bobo, Marketing Manager of HB&G Building Products, manufacturers of PermaWrap™. “Exterior column wraps offer a quick and easy solution of a lifetime. They maintain the appearance of the elegant high-end columns while remaining modestly priced.”
So remember, if you’re looking for a dramatic way to dress up your home for the holidays, consider exterior columns wraps. You’ll be amazed at the stunning difference they can make in turning a ho-hum home into a holiday standout.
