Column Wraps Out of Interlocking Outside Corner Installation

Updated on May 23, 2024

Build out the desired column to be wrapped at no more or less than:

  • Brick: 13″ x 13″
  • Castle Rock: 13 ¾” x 13 ¾”
  • Country Ledgestone: 14 ¾” x 14 ¾”
  • Random Rock: 14 ¾” x 14 ¾”
  • Slatestone: 12 ¾” x 12 ¾”
  • Stacked Stone: 13 ⅝” x 13 ⅝”

Step 1

Determine the height above ground where the bottom of the column should be. Measure up 2 ¾” from this point and strike a level line. Attach the top of the starter strip on this line. Level and attach starter strip on each face of the column stopping 2″ from each
corner edge. (fig. 1)

Note: Each box contains 2 left (L-2,L-4) and 2 right Interlocking corners (R-1, R-3). 2 boxes are needed for 2 courses.

Step 2

Use 4 right pieces for the 1st course and 4 left pieces for the next course. Slide corners down into the starter strip and attach all pieces at indicated on the screw hem. There are 3 screw points on the long side of the corner and 2 on the shorter end. Make sure to use 5 screws per corner. Hold the bottom edge of corner snug against the substrate while placing the screws. (fig. 2)

Step 3

For the next course, L-2/L-4 and L-2/L-4, slide corners down onto first row of corners and attach as described above. Continue to alternate as needed until the desired height is achieved. When alternating courses, make sure to not stack the same number on one another to prevent pattern repetition. (fig. 3)

Note: Do not over tighten the screws when attaching the corner pieces. Over tightening can cause corners to “kick out” at the bottom and create a gap. If a gap is present, pull the corners together to minimize the gap and face screw diagonally through the tongue and groove. Use a 3″ deck screw. Use NextStone™ caulk to fill screw head and NextStone™ touch up paint for a professional finish.
