Using Repeating Cornice Brackets


Porch cornices (right) and the frieze area below house eaves need Repeating Brackets to create a three-dimensional effect. Generally, these are placed 12 to 18 inches apart, and are sometimes installed in pairs with 2" - 4" between each Bracket.

Eighteen inch spacing is a good starting point. Actual spacing should be equal, and will be dictated by the overall length available for a given section of Brackets. Repeating Cornice Brackets tend to be less ornate, and are usually 1-1/2" in thickness. Because the edge is so prominently displayed with Repeating Cornice Brackets, less thickness would appear too light. Not only do they create the perception of a third dimension, but the repeating pattern these Brackets create (when placed no more than 18" apart) is very appealing. Do not hesitate to experiment with different spacings. Should you decide to install your Repeating Brackets closer than you had originally planned, we can always send additional ones to you.
