The history of Corbels
Most modern corbels are simple in design, but they in fact have a very complex history. Many old corbels were carved in the image of animals, people, or foliage. Although mostly decorative in nature, they sometimes can be and are used as extra structural support. If you travel to older, more architectural portions of the world, the chances are you will see many corbels.
Use in today’s world.
Most often, corbels today are used to spruce up an otherwise uncharacteristic area of the home. They can be used in a front porch attached to posts, or on a roofline soffit, or really anywhere a roofline and a wall meet. Call us for an estimate for installing your corbels!
