September 2013 - Gable Decor & Restoration Spotlight


Add instant curb appeal with Gable Decor!

High Impact Curb Appeal
Gable Decorations are one of the quickest ways to change your home's overall appearance. In fact, Gable Decorations may add more impact per dollar than anything else you can do outside!

House with 2 Gables

We have a wide variety of designs to suit your house style and personal preference. And, all of Pitch Finderour Gable Decorations except Flying Circle (4208) can be slightly modified by us (at no additional charge!) to fit most roof pitches (slopes). You can easily determine your roof's pitch using our Pitch Finder.


PVC for Low Maintenance
Due to the weather exposure gables typically receive, please consider Cellular PVC for your Gable Decorations. It's a synthetic wood that will never crack, warp, or rot and is impervious to moisture, salt, and insects! That's perfect for Gable Decorations, since they're difficult to re-paint once installed.

A customer, upon receiving her PVC Gable Decoration, emailed to say, "I sent you an email Saturday stating the Gable [Decoration] was wood, not PVC. The contractor who was putting this up said it was wood. My husband, who is a carpenter, said it is PVC. It just looked and felt so much like wood the contractor could not tell the difference." 
                                         --E. McSherley, NJ


Cut Shingles
ShinglesGables (and dormers) can also be decorated with Fancy Cut Cedar Shingles. Using more than one pattern gives almost limitless design possibilities. (Round Shingles in photo.)


Running Trim
Running Trim

Running Trim can be used along the eaves of your gable, either with a Gable Decoration or by itself. When using Running Trim in gables, we strongly recommend upgrading to PVC to minimize the upkeep.


Vents
Use Polyurethane Vents to keep the low maintenance theme going. Our Louvered Vents are High VentDensity Polyurethane, the only kind we sell. It feels, sounds, installs, and paints just like wood but that's where the similarities end!

Better Than Ever...

We just received this series of photos from Steve... What a fine example of restoring architectural authenticity to his family home!

Built in 1905, here's the way the house changed over the years:
