“Due to the fact that Red western cedar comes in many color variations from reddish white to reddish browns your brackets and corbels may have beautiful color variations that differ from one product to the next. By looking at all of our products online you will get a good idea of some of
those different color variations.”
Separate Mounting Boards can be ordered (optional) for those who want diagonals boards filling out the triangular shape around the perimeter. These can assist in mounting the gable into the roof structure. The will be cut for you and shipped unattached if you select this option (made from 2x4s).

Painting, Staining, and Sealing Recommendations:
All product comes as unfinished red western cedar and will need to be painted, stained, or sealed by the customer. It is recommended to seal product as soon as you get it. For painting, we recommend an oil based primer and paint rather than a latex paint. Staining or sealing helps the cedar maintain or keep its luster for longer and prevents micro cracks (cosmetic only) from developing in the large timbers over time.
Determining size can sometimes be a challenge. One tip you can do is to cut a 2x4 stud at either 48", 66", or 92" and to have a handyman carry the stud up and hold it in the gable roof line. This can help simulate where the bottom beam is gonna lay if you order the corresponding gable. Take a picture of what it looks like from the street and usually this helps alot. Sometimes there is a window under the gable which you can measure and use as a reference point. For example if there is a 60" window under the gable you can step back and look at it from the street and use the window as a guide as to how long a 66" gable might be.
