What is a good internet company selling architectural columns? I am doing
an indoor colonnade project with four Tuscan style columns, 8" diameter,
8'-0" high, made from fiberglass or fiberglass/composite. They don't have
to be load bearing. These can be ordered from Home Depot for about $300
including cap and base, but I want to see if I can save some $$ through an
Thanks to all for good suggestions.
Shipping costs from web sources were high, anywhere from $200-300. I
decided to give Lowes a call, expecting about the same high cost and long
wait as Home Depot. However, they were selling the identical column for
only $160, and better yet, it is something they regularly stock (vs. Home
Depot costs $300 and special order takes 4-6 weeks). That's quite a
difference for two stores that are supposed to be competitive with each
other. On the other hand, I found that Home Depot has better prices on
other items than Lowes. So it pays to compare.
