Our WorthingtonStone™ polymer stone columns are a unique product in the stone porch column industry. Manufactured from a composition of highly durable polyester resins, these polymer stone columns have the look and feel of real cast stone but they weigh approximately 50% less than standard stone columns. This weight reduction is achieved by manufacturing our polymer stone columns in a rotary cast mold which allows WorthingtonStone™ polymer stone columns to have a hollow core. By adding pigments into the casting material we can offer our WorthingtonStone™ polymer Stone columns in six different standard colors.
The square WorthingtonStone™ is available to complement our round tapered or non-tapered polymer stone columns. The availability of the square columns incorporate the spun cast manufacturing as our fiberglass columns but have an additional pigment to give it color and finished texture look to look and feel like stone. This process is a very lightweight alternative to real cast stone and still is strong enough to hold up to 20,000 lbs each. Plain square column and pilaster options are available and can be color matched.
Our WORTHINGTON Stone™, WORTHINGTON Cast™, WORTHINGTON FRP™, Aluminum as well as our wide array of wood columns, are all load bearing as long as they are not split.
The columns ship with a qualified freight carrier company. Depending on the size of capitals and bases we may use FedEx.
Yes. If the column is non-tapered, you may trim to any specific height. Each column must be trimmed from the bottom of the shaft.
To reassemble a split Worthington Column, a polyurethane construction adhesive should be used. This product can be found at any hardware or construction-supply provider. For our wood columns, any waterproof wood glue should be used.
Split columns are used for visual purposes only (aluminum is the exception). Once the column is cut vertically, it is no longer load-bearing.
Depending on your application, there are several ways to hold a column in place when used for decoration purposes only. One of the most common ways to hold a column in place is to use standard L brackets on the bottom and top of the column’s shaft. The Tuscan Base and Capital hide this method of installation. If being assembled around a wooden post, a common way to secure the column is by using wood shims. The shims should fit snugly between the column shaft and the post for proper stability.
