Posts & Pedestals
for Outdoor Construction

Posts are smaller than columns, typically 3-1/2 " up to 8". Posts are a basic building component for small arbours, fences, trelliscapes and other outdoor construction. At FineHouse we supply posts in a number of sizes and materials with quite a few options. Round and square posts are available with a selection of caps and bases.

The Pedestal is built similar to a square column but is used differently, either to set something upon or as the base for a column. As you look at posts, the same elevations and options often apply to pedestals. When you want to use a Pedestal, please contact a FineHouse product specialist for applicability and pricing at trellis@finehouse.net or call (540) 436-8080

An important consideration for a long lasting post is our PostCore™ which is implanted in the larger posts and extends out the bottom to be set in an approved foundation. To learn more about advantages of PostCore™ look here.

Post
  3-1/2" & 5-1/2" Square
Ipe

The Ipe post is the only untreated wood post we recommend for below grade use. With uniform grain and color this wood weathers to a nice grey. With the proper installation, the Ipe post will last 25 years and longer. When you require a wood post of this slender size, the Ipe post is the only choice.

Specify a cap and base with copper flashing.

Available in heights up to 12ft.
