Why to Trust Our Stone Post Wraps
Thanks to our experience building for (and closely working with) home contractors, we know what matters to you in a product. You want to deliver a stunning finished product for your customer — and you want to save your valuable time. Our stone post wraps deliver both.
This matters because columns are common for home porches and pole barns alike. More often than not, if a client wants you to install stone panels on their home, they also want you to match them on the columns as well. That’s where we come in. We’re comparing the experience of building one of our kits to the traditional method:Time Savings
The number one reason that new contractors try our stone post wraps is to save time. You can put together one of our kits for a column in 30 minutes (and that includes the framing). Compare that to the average half day it takes to wrap a single post the traditional way.Easy Install
The innovative easy-install process is how our products save you hours on a single column wrap. Traditional installation requires you to cut and grind stones or panels to fit the column base and to mortar them in place. Rather than needing to cut and grind down panels to fit around the porch column, you simply need to place and screw on our kit. You’ll have the perfect result every time with just a screw gun and a level.Easy Estimating
Stone column wraps are notoriously difficult to estimate — and that can make projects that require them challenging to quote. Our stone veneer column wraps change that. Since you know exactly how long it’ll take you to build one and you’ll know exactly what you’ll pay for each kit, quoting the job couldn’t be easier.Size Variety
Since you’ll run into a variety of post sizes you need to wrap, we build a variety of kits. However, 6”X6” and 5”X6” are the most common dimensions by far.Factory Edge
Not only is this project a win for your convenience, but it also leads to a more polished finished project for your customer. Since you don’t need to do any cutting or grinding to make the fit work, there won’t be any rough cuts or cut edges sticking out. That means all your client will see is the clean, professional cut of the factory-made edge.Manufactured, Pre-Cut Column Cap
To make the job as simple as possible, we provide a manufactured, pre-cut column cap to finish off the stone veneer post wrap. This is just one way we save you labor and ensure the best project every time.Gorgeous Look
The patterns and styles for our stone post wraps are pulled directly from our lines of mortarless exterior stone veneer. We often hear just how striking the different colors and realistic textures that we design are. We encourage you to check out our project gallery to see how our veneer looks in a variety of spaces!
How to Install Column Wraps from Affinity Stone
It’s one thing to say our products are easy to work with — it’s another thing to show you.
- Make sure the wooden base components are level and then fasten them around the post.
- Install the first course of stone panels to the base of the post, ensuring it is level and flush with the panel next to it.
- Install the second and third courses of stone on top of your first, so the entire column is wrapped.
- Place and secure easy-install column caps.
That’s it — do these steps and you’ve built a gorgeous stone veneer column that will look exceptional for decades to come! If you’re a visual learner, check out our handy “How to Install Column Wraps” video:
