Decorative Cedar Gables
Our decorative cedar gables and architectural gable accents
are designed to accommodate virtually any pitch. We list four of the
more common roof pitches, however, we can fabricate to virtually any
pitch based on your specific needs. All roof pitches are listed as
rise/run for clarity. Only two variables are needed to determine the
full specifications of any of our pitches: length and pitch. From there
the height is determined mathematically. If you prefer to provide us
with the height and pitch instead, we can calculate the length for you
based on your specifications. To request a quote on a
custom decorative gable please fill out our quote request form.
Architectural wood gables are a great way to accent roof pitches and are extremely popular in Craftman style homes and Victorian style homes. Click the Downloadable Pitch Template and print in landscape mode as a .PDF. Hold the template up to your gable roof line to ballpark the size of your pitch. If it does not EXACTLY match one of the listed pitches then give us a call or consult with a local handyman or contractor. For a more accurate measurement you can use a plumb bob and level. Hang a plumb bob 24" and mark the string at 24" with a marker. 24" is the RISE. Measure across with a level and tape measure to get the RUN. Divide RISE/RUN and multiply by 12 to get the pitch.Printable Roof Pitch Chart and How to Measure Pitch of Roof
