Vinyl porch posts are a very warm and inviting outdoor accent, they can fit into many different styles of Architecture. Our Porch Posts are entirely load bearing and can easily hold most porch roofs. These Porch Posts are less expensive than a normal Round or Square Fiberglass column however they don’t require as big a foot print on the bottom, this is important in some situations. Our Vinyl porch posts are made by HB&G, their trade name is PermaPost.
The Vinyl Porch Post is composed of a Polyethylene shell which surrounds a galvanized steel pipe (20 gauge for the 5” post, 13 gauge for the 6” post) and polyurethane foam filler. The 6” Vinyl Porch Post is tested to carry a load of up to 5,000 lbs., and the 5” post is rated at 1,300 lbs. (ASTM A500 K.S.I)
Over the last 15 – 20 years Greater Toronto Area Home Builders have been installing Wood Porch Posts in some of their homes however after weathering many GTA winters, the wood has rotted to the point where these columns are no longer structurally sound. Vinyl Porch Posts are the perfect replacement due to their 25 year warranty and ability to withstand anything a Southern Ontario Summer and Winter can throw at them.
Feel proud to hang out on your porch again, call or email us us today to find out how.
