Gable Trim, Charlotte, NC
Gable trim is a great way to add a unique flair to the exterior of your Charlotte, NC home.
Gable trim is a great way to add a unique flair to the exterior of your home. There are many styles of gable trim, including a Victorian swirling design that looks nice on older styles of homes, as well as more angular designs that complement modern homes. Gable trim typically goes in the corners of pointed roofs, and you can install several pieces if you have more than one pointed part of your roof. Some designs also have pieces of wood in a lattice pattern, which is similar to the Victorian style.
Once you install gable trim, you might want to paint it a contrasting color to help it stand out. If you leave the wood unpainted, it will resemble a cabin with exposed beams, which is also a popular choice. White gable trim looks more antique, while bright colors can provide stark contrast on a darker, modern home. Some attic and upper-level windows also have gable trim, so you can make your house exterior look more uniform by matching the trim all around the home.
Since installing gable trim requires you to get up on the roof, experts recommend that you hire a professional who understands safety requirements to avoid injury.
