DuraPine Columns™ are a step up. Traditional 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 Cox 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.
DuraPine Columns™ are structural and can be used in place of fiberglass or aluminum columns to create a substantial cost savings. Cox square laminated timber columns are available in cross sections from 4x4 to 12x12. They are also available in two different styles of turned post in 5" and 6" sizes.
