Lolly Column

Lally Columns and Jack Post Covers

Basements are no longer used just for storage, today's trend is to convert them into additional guest rooms or a family fun space. While lally posts or jack posts are an effective means to holding up a beam, most homeowners consider them to be an unsightly eye sore when designing plans for their basement living space. Using our columns as a wrap, these cold, immovable obstacles can be transformed into a decorative column accent.

Some choose to just frame around jack posts with drywall which is time consuming and basic in appearance. Others use thin 3 to 4" round post covers, but the problem is that they look just like post covers, not like decorative architectural elements!

Elite Trimworks offers more choices than ever for this makeover dilemma. We offer both square and round SPLIT wood columns that are made to wrap around any post out there. We precision split the shaft, caps and bases into halves to be reassembled around a support. Not only are they decorative but they are easy to install using glue or nails, adjustable, and add the perfect finishing touch to any basement remodeling project.

 

Most jack or lally post are 3" to 4" wide. Any of our Square Columns or our 8" diameter split round wood columns would easily cover your jack posts (Max diameter is 4 1/8" or a circumference of 13"). For a room with an eight feet high ceilings a 8" diameter round or square column is architecturally accurate and what we recommend. Should you chose something smaller, we offer a 6" square post cover which is simply glued together we even include the glue and hardware.  As in the image below, masking tape can be used to hold the side the a column shaft in place until the glue cures. More on Covering Posts in Basements.

To determine the diameter of your post, divide the circumference of a circle by pi  (which is equal to 3.14). If a circle has a circumference of 12.56 its diameter is 4, (12.56 / 3.14 = 4) or If a circle has a circumference of 9.42 its diameter is 3, (9.42 / 3.14 = 3) To find the circumference of a circle measure the distance around the outside of the circle with a flexible fabric tape, it could be also called the perimeter.
