Advanced Fiberglass Column Materials (FRP Columns)
Now homeowners, commercial builders and residential contractors can enjoy
the traditional aesthetics of architecturally proportioned columns with
the non-traditional benefits of the most advanced construction materials
in the world today---rotocast fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP).
Pound for pound these materials are stronger than concrete columns,
steel columns, or aluminum columns.
columns offer exceptionally low maintenance, the look-and-feel of natural
stone, and a range of applications unequalled by conventional wood
columns. They are non-porous,
waterproof, and impervious to termite and carpenter ant attack as well
as staining and decaying fungi. High-humidity environments that are so hard on wood have no
effect on these FRP columns; they are rot-proof because they absorb virtually
no moisture. In fact,
temperature extremes and thermal cycling have very little effect on FRP

as their source for architectural columns. Today, that has changed with
fiberglass columns and pillars. The most advanced construction materials
in the world today---rotocast fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP columns)
are the strongest patio and porch columns in the home building and construction
