Although every column mailbox is personalized to accommodate the varying options in brick, stone, or stucco; modifications to the base design, although seldom expensive, constitute a customized mailbox. For example, most column mailboxes have these things in common: 1) They are either Arched or Flat Topped, 2) They are comprised of horizontally stacked stone or brick, 3) Natural-colored mortar is used.
