Benefits of Foam Columns
- Foam columns are a beautiful alternative to any wood, stone, or other construction material. Once again is not even half the price of any one of those materials.
- Foam columns are water-resistant; the higher the density of foam you use, the more durable the foam is, and the more resistant to weather conditions it is (sun, rain, snow, etc.).
- It doesn’t rot like wood would, or erode like stone. It’s lightweight but highly durable.
- Pests also cannot ruin foam columns; it’s a non-organic substance therefore is impervious to pest.
