There’s a welcome alternative to columns made from solid timbers – laminated timber columns made from high-grade pressure-treated lumber.

Traditional timber columns are prone to warping and cracking in a short period of time after installation. This can be exasperating to both the homeowner and builder.

Laminated Timber Columns by Cox are lighter, easier to handle, and much less likely to twist than solid traditional columns, and they have the handsome appearance of veneer-encased timbers without requiring the extra construction time.
