 CHAPTER 1   Imperial Columns, Caps & Bases     Shipping Worldwide



  made from:   24 Woods        ALL CUSTOM MADE TO MATCH     


       historic duplication of columns


  Do you have damaged columns, capitals or bases?


  Imperial can duplicate your capitals, shafts and bases


  Tapered & Non-Tapered, Decorative Capitals or Plain

  Smooth, 12 Flutes, 24 Flutes

  Even Italianate (1/2 smooth, 1/2 Fluted)






 Step 1:  Take 3 digital photos:   

 Step 2:  Measure the components  

 Step 3:  Put all measurements on the photos or drawings

 Photo 1: Long shot of the column

 so we can see it from a distance

 Measure the total height including the Capital, Shaft & Base

 from Top to Bottom - the total Height  


 Photo 2:  Close up of the capital

 Measure the square capital Width, Depth & Height

 Measure the diameter of each round section and the heights

 Measure the distance between the rings


  Photo 3:  Close up of the base

  Measure the square base - width, depth & height

  Measure the diameter of each round section & the heights


  Notes for Measuring:

  On a true circle (round parts) 

  The diameter is the width of the round circle (half the diameter is the radius)

  If you cannot measure the diameter - take a flexible tape or string and provide us

  with the circumference (the length of the perimeter of the circle)



Step 4:  Things we need to know

Question 1:   How many columns do you need?

Question 2:   Are they for inside or outside use?

Question 3:   Do they carry load from above

                       If they do carry loads such as a support for a porch roof overhang, install a pressure treated or metal post

                       to a secure base.   Let us know how big the supports are, if they are round or square?

                       Order the new replacement column split to wrap your new supporting post

                       Always check with a structural engineer or qualified professional for load questions.  


Step 5:  Email us the photos with measurements and the column information from Step 4 to...


Step 6:  We will fax or email you a written quote for your approval with freight.


Step 7:  Once production begins - timing will be on your quotation
