Need advice - column post cover - how to or where to find?

Hey,

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas or where I could get top post covers for the front pillars of my house to go right on top of the stone. Picture here:

Not without a measurement to go by. Google pvc column wrap kits.

Iím actually not looking to wrap the whole column. Iím looking to get a stone top for the current brick. Something like this but it would need to be cut into two so it could connect over the existing post.

You want capstones, not post covers. Go to your local redi-mix concrete plant. If they don't have ones they can order they can point you to a place that does. I get mine from a guy I know that makes them.

Local cement/concrete retailer.

This was my craftsman column I installed about 5 years ago. You need to see if the column is load bearing or not, mine isnt so a simple limestone column cap. If I recall it was about $90 but again, 5 years ago.

Or assuming you have them in your area, go to Menards or order them online. https://www.menards.com/main/buildin...106573&ipos=20
