Our Poly-Classic® Craftsman columns are made from expanded, cellular PVC and use an E-Z Lock joint design. They can be trimmed, drilled and fastened using ordinary carpentry tools. But unlike traditional wood columns that require exceptional joinery and assembly, these columns are ready for quick installation. Their hollow centers are also useful as channels to conceal downspouts, wiring or plumbing.

About our PVC Square Tapered Craftsman Columns Price Quotes

The prices for our Poly-Classic® Craftsman columns vary based on the options you order. For most uses you'll want a cap and base, so we offer the economical standard cap and base, shown left. Other cap and base options are available. See the Price Lists for Different Panel, Cap and Base Options below. We also offer non-tapered Poly-Classic® Craftsman columns.

Pedestals for Craftsman Columns

Placeholder image

Craftsman columns look great on pedestals and we give you several styles to choose from. Pedestals with plain panels are the cheapest, but for a few more pesos, you may prefer the the look of the raised panels. Recessed panels are the most expensive because they require thicker PVC material when manufactured.

More Cap and Base Styles

The shaft comes in 4 pieces with mitered ball and socket edge joints for easy assembly. The cap and base trim comes separate pieces for easy assembly. Most Craftsman columns are made to order in about 3 weeks. Because most Craftsman products are made to order, and cut with CNC routers, custom sizes and configurations are available. All Craftsman products are available in the wood of your choice on special order. We do not recommend the wood option for paint grade applications; the cost is higher and the PVC holds up better outside. Because the panels are cut with a router, inside corners are radiused (rounded), tighter radius (1/8") cuts are available for a small up-charge.
