I have 2 6 x6 pressure treated wood posts on my front gallery that I would like to cover for maintenance purposes. Would anyone have any suggestions what I can use? I have not found anything in my local hardware stores. All they carry is in white and that does not work.

Suggestions and cost would be appreciated.

Hi Diana,

There are many, many stone options available that look great when they are finished. You might also be able to use synthetic deck boards. Many colors and styles available.

Good luck with it!

I would suggest Vesatex post wraps. It is paintable vinyl that because of zero moisture will last a very lng time before needing painting again.
