Shearing Off the Base of the Porch Columns, Rebuilding Them
My father Gale Harriman restoring porch columns. Dad removed the rotted bottoms of each column. He replaced the rotten area with 6' matching block, then covered each block with a masonite shroud masking the repair. He restored each one in the same manner and moved through the process like a skilled surgeon. I thought it was fascinating watching him work.
