Corbels in historical architecture are often made of the same stone material as the building. Millwork on home exteriors is traditionally made of wood, but urethane materials have become very popular due to their superior ability to resist damage such as cracking, rotting, or fading. They are often cheaper to use than wood products as well. The most commonly used solid plastic material for home exteriors is high-density polyurethane. The higher density the urethane material, the greater is its strength and stability. Often plastic products require no water sealing or staining, making your home improvements that much easier.
Corbels have been used for centuries to compliment homes and buildings, in wood or stone, from elaborately molded French and Italian corbels to popular English wood corbels. Today, corbels are often used for home improvements and can be as ornate or simple as the style of the home that they compliment. They can be made to fit any home exterior color, size, and style. Corbels are often very detailed with scrolling or floral patterns, protruding far from the home exterior, or corbel designs can be very simple or recessed.

Frequently Asked Questions
These corbels look beautiful on our front porch (house is Georgian in style). The shipment arrived on time, and the product was easy to work with. The detail is well-crafted. This is my first purchase from Architectural Depot, but it will not be my last.
Corbels need priming before painting
Product appearance excellent. Instructions imply the product can be stained, but stains we tried did not penetrate, and the product was then painted instead. The first coat of latex paint which was sprayed on by a contract painter bubbled and left a rough appearance in places, so it had to be scraped and refinished (repairs still in work). Recommend it be primed before painting.
Quality product. Very smooth, ready for paint straight out of the box. Sprayed with oil based paint, looks great. Attached with foamboard adhesive and 2 finish nails. Easy install. Fast shipping and well packaged.
