Fiberglass columns are not hard to keep clean. They do not rust, age, and are not particularly attractive to dust. But like any aspect of your home, they do need to be cleaned from time to time. And if you are currently looking up at a two-story column wondering "How the heck am I going to clean that", we've got you covered. As experts in column installation, we also happen to know a thing or two about keeping your columns looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.
Flipping a home is taking an older or less attractive home and renovating it to sell at a far higher price than it was bought for. Home flipping is sometimes done with inherited homes or older homes that you have moved out of, or it can be done as an investment project buying homes specifically to flip them for a profit. Whatever your reason, flipping an older home can be challenging because you will often need to completely reinvent the look without overspending on renovations.
Ceiling beams add texture and dimension to your living space. Some invoke the feeling of a bygone era when hand-hewn and rough-sawn beams were used in 18th and 19th-century homes, barns and other structures. Such beams provided essential support to upper floors and roof systems. Exposed solid wood beams appeared in many residences around the world. You'll find them in every kind of structure, from cottages to castles. Unfortunately, this practice depleted forests of old-growth oaks.
Rustic was the norm for decades and then modern life came along. But more and more people are going back to the rustic look. Rustic beams inside that run along the ceilings can be quite lovely. The wood look adds warmth and personality to even a modern room. With our quality, affordable material it is easy to add the look to any room in the house but it looks particularly nice in kitchens, great rooms or dens. That same rustic look can travel outside to your porch with our custom rustic columns. Here are some great reasons to consider adding faux wood columns to your porch.
