Q:- Are your columns load bearing?
A:- 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.
Q:- How are the columns shipped?
A:- The columns ship with a qualified freight carrier company. They are crated and placed on a pallet.
Q:- Can I trim my columns to a shorter height?
A:- 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.
Q:- If my columns are split, what type of adhesive do I need to reassemble them?
A:- 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.
Q:- If my columns are split, are they still load bearing?
A:- Split columns are used for visual purposes only (aluminum is the exception). Once the column is cut vertically, it is no longer load-bearing.
Q:- How do I secure a split column to a wooden or metal post?
A:- 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.
Q:- Do I have to paint these columns?
A:- It depends. If you are using one of our WORTHINGTON Cast™, WORTHINGTON FRP™ or paint grade wood columns, then an oil-based or acrylic latex paint must be used. Our WORTHINGTON Stone™ and Aluminum Columns come in a pre-finished material that, unless installation touch ups are needed, does not require painting.
Q:- Do the capital and base add any height to the column?
A:- For all of our Columns, the capital and base do not add any height unless a decorative capital is used. For all of our wood columns, the capital and base do add height. These heights can be adjusted per your request.
