My 1934 home has 12 inch round wood colums of the Tuscan order. The bases are rotted and need to be replaced. I am looking for something that is structural that will not rot. Can you help?
Historical wood columns are generally manufactured to stack between the wooden capitals and bases which contribute to the overall height. Aluminum Tuscan capitals and bases are intended to wrap around an aluminum column shaft and do not contribute to the overall height. They are not an acceptable replacement.
