Culpeper structural columns have the handsome appearance of veneer-encased timbers without requiring extra construction time. They are treated for ground contact and can be used in place of fiberglass or aluminum columns for a substantial cost savings.

Culpeper Columns are a step up. Traditional solid timber columns are prone to warping and cracking in a short period of time after installation. This can be exasperating for both the homeowner and builder. Laminated timber columns by Culpeper are lighter, easier to handle and much less likely to twist than traditional solid columns and they have the handsome appearance of veneer-encased timbers without requiring the extra construction time.
