Many of our clients believe that well-constructed covered patios, patio covers, or pergolas are not complete without sturdy, aesthetically pleasing custom columns to complement it. Fortunately, at Lone Star Patio Builders we are fully capable of constructing a wide range of custom columns to enhance the appearance and solidity of our outdoor structures. Although we are happy to adorn these structures with standard aluminum or steel supports, many of our clients prefer columns that highlight the natural attributes of their properties and form lasting impressions in the minds of visitors and neighbors.
How Custom Columns Can Enhance Your Space
There are a few clear reasons to incorporate custom columns into a pergola, patio cover or other outdoor structure. First, they enhance the overall appearance of the structure. Many customers prefer column styles that match the unique designs of their structures’ roofs. This creates a sense of cohesiveness and taste that guests and neighbors are sure to notice.
Custom columns can also be fitted with electrical outlets or custom lighting fixtures. This is especially true for properties that feature existing HardiePlank columns on their main houses, guest houses or other outbuildings. Patio covers and pergolas with columns that mirror the styles of these older structures can dramatically increase the curb appeal of a property and expedite the often-stressful sales process.
Available Column Options
Our customized columns come in a dizzying array of designs and can be constructed from several different “base” materials ideal for aluminum construction. These include:
- Brick: Our customized columns can feature solid brick bases, solid brick supports, or brick outer layers that surround a different type of core.
- Wood: As one of our most popular custom choices, our wood columns can be created from cedar, maple and other wood strains. They can also be sanded and stained to mirror the look and feel of the covers that they support.
- Alumawood: This type of custom column ensures visual consistency with our pergolas & it comes with a Kynar finish.
- Roman-style: Our attractive, sturdy Roman-style posts instill a sense of awe in visitors and often match the aesthetics of our clients’ main houses.
