Do these porch columns provide any support?


Finished everything including primer this afternoon. All that is left is paint. Thanks for the help and info. I wasn't sure how to go about it at first.

If you have a chance, could you please post a picture of what you did to the base of the column you replaced? We had a similar issue with our porch posts rotting at the bottom and they are now supported by ugly concrete blocks. Did you use the post bases that JoeCaption posted? That might be a solution for us and I wanted to see how it worked out for you.

Thanks!

Yay, thank you so much! That thread didn't come up when I did a search.
