Find below the Spandrel system that I offer.   They are strong and will hold up to storms, wayward birds, and any other natural enemy of the spandrel.

All spandrels sections are designed to fit end to end to allow you to make virtually any length.

To order:  Measure each span and decide how many sections you need per span - and give me a call. 

Spandrels look great all by themselves, however another popular way to use them is to place a porch bracket under them.  A striking look.    The link below will take you to our selection of Standard Porch Brackets.

Installing

Most often you will need to make one cut to perfectly fit your opening using multipal sections.  Remember, measure twice, cut once.  There are many ways, but I would offer a suggestion.  Purchase a long 1x2 type of board from your local home center and cut it to fit your span exactly.  Now you can mount your spandrel sections to the board.  Paint everything at once and then hang as one unit.  Very simple and easy to install.  To achieve a seamless look where the sections butt up against each other you can use glue and then  wood putty. 

Remember to pre drill pilot holes just slightly larger than the screw or nail you will be using to keep your wood from splitting.

Victorian porch spandrels spandrilsPainting

While most often spandrels are painted one color, you can get very creative and do a two toned or even a three tone color design.  Start by painting the entire piece your spandrel color, then using blue painters tape, tape off the ends of the spandrels and paint the top and bottom rails a second color.  Example picture below.

NOTE FOR DO IT YOURSELFERS

I am able to offer the individual spandrels for DIY projects.   Hardwood turned spindles are  $2.75 ea.  For a four inch spacing, plan on 3 per foot.   Either 1x2 or 2x2  top and bottom rails can be purchased at your local home center.  Call to order.
