Versatex has introduced a PVC column wrap for 12x12 posts. The new VersaWrap column system has actual outside dimensions of 11 1/4 inches by 11 1/4 inches, is 3/4-inch thick, and comes in 12-foot lengths. Manufactured from a matte-finished cellular PVC, the one-piece, pre-cut post wrap has a full-length friction-fit closure. The new size augments a line that already includes wraps for smaller posts. According to the company, the installer simply adds glue, wraps the post, and peels off the protective tape an hour later. Each post wrap retails for $375. Versatex, 724.857.1111,
