There are several reasons why homeowners and architects prefer aluminium carport columns and verandah columns over other options available in the market. As one of the most experienced suppliers of architectural columns in Australia, we have worked with a number of contactors and architects in Australia. We have witnessed a tremendous popularity of aluminium columns because of the various advantages they offer at a very reasonable price. Let’s have a look at some of their prominent benefits:
- Aluminium Columns Do Not Rust: Verandah columns made of aluminium do not undergo any type of deterioration including rusting. Most other materials such as steel can rust regardless of the type of coating you use on them. In most cases, you have to repaint ordinary columns every few years to slow down the rusting process. Cast Aluminium stands out because it doesn’t corrode even in adverse environment conditions. These columns do not show any sign of wear and tear for over a decade, and that too without any major maintenance requirements.
- Aluminium Columns Are Easy to Install: Despite being one of the most durable metals, aluminium is surprisingly lightweight. That’s also the reason why verandah columns and carport columns made of cast aluminium are so easy to install. Moreover, you don’t need heavy tools or equipment to install them, thereby drastically bringing down the installations cost and time.
- Aesthetics: Verandah columns and carport columns available at Colonial Castings are finished using the highest quality coatings for added protection and design uniformity on all sides.
Aluminium has a superior class ‘A’ flame Spread rating, which shows it’s a non combustible metal. Since aluminium has made a lot of advancements in the recent years, aluminium products are all set to deliver even more benefits to the buyers.
If you’re not familiar with aluminium carport columns and verandah columns, you’ll be glad to know that nowadays these cast aluminium products are available in a number of styles and sizes for building projects that were impossible to imagine without steel and other traditional materials a few years back.
