ordered these wraps for 2, 30 year old porch posts that had rotted out at the base. I had initially intended to repair the posts with new wood at the bottom of each post, spackle, sand, and paint the posts before installing new vinyl railing around the porch perimeter. When I realized the posts appearance were too far gone I decided to try these wraps to enhance their appearance. I was amazed at how easy the wraps were to install! I had to fit them at the top to the ceiling around some uneven boards they were easy to cut with tin snips and they form fitted around the posts easily. The design of these is wonderful and they look great. Together the wrapped posts and the vinyl railing look great and no more painting ever again. money well spent HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Very happy with this product. No issues installing without any help.
I really was hoping to eliminate painting, these wraps solved that. First one took a half hour or so to figure out, ten to fifteen minutes after that. My only disappointment is that I didn't order the bases. I may solve that problem today. Great product, wish I had them 20 years ago!
I was looking for something that could transition my wooden posts to vinyl without having to remove the posts, jack up the porch roof, etc. This is a really quality product. It takes a little bit to install the first one, but once you get down the process the rest are easy (took me about 10-15 minutes each). The end result looks great; you cannot tell it's a wrap, and it fits very snugly. Would order again.
