The gable is the triangle that never goes out of style.
Whether your home is modern, traditional, updated or antique, the pitched-roof style accommodates a variety of home types and has for hundreds of years.
Some are simple and unadorned; others flaunt decorative elements like gingerbread and Victorian-inspired trim. Some are front-gables, some side-gables, and some cross-gables, which means they’re on the front and side, and or a mix of all of the above.
Let’s take a closer peek at a few homes with gables that catch the eye, and the James Hardie® siding and trim that makes them stand out.
When you first check out a house from the street, you’re likely drawn to the peak of the home’s gables before the eyes move downward. Whether it’s in the front of the house, the side, or over the porch, each gable makes an entry point for the eye. This updated Folk Victorian is clad in Artisan® siding in Iron Gray with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White. The deep gray gives the older home a more modern look, and the trimmed touches in the gables give the home a finished look.
Arctic White Antique
This Victorian is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding and HardieTrim boards, both in Arctic White. The Midwest home’s front and side gables are adorned with gingerbread style details, which match the accents framing the columns on the front porches.
Sandy and Shingled
This updated Minnesota sandy stunner is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Sandstone Beige with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White. The half-round HardieShingle siding in the gable’s peaks matches the beige hue of the lap siding and adds a pop to the entire look of this home.
