Homes with gables—the triangular portion of the exterior wall between the edges of the intersecting roof pitches—are prevalent. They’re so common in fact; most kids draw them when illustrating a house.
When cladding your exterior with James Hardie® siding and trim, think like a kid and accentuate your gables. You can easily highlight the pitched architecture with staggered edge HardieShingle® siding.
The overlapping rows of staggered shingles add a funky playfulness to a house for a less rigid, more laid-back look.
We’ve wrangled up a few homes that highlight their gables with staggered edge shingles (over the straight edge variety) for a more rustic, artsy look. Each one is paired with HardiePlank® lap siding as the main siding selection—take a peek at the gables clad in staggered edge HardieShingle siding.
Sail Cloth Shingles
This bungalow is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Monterey Taupe, while its gables are clad in staggered edge HardieShingle siding in Sail Cloth. The shutters are a perfect match to the lap siding, and the varying lengths of the creamy shingles add a hint of whimsy to the quaint home.
Fresh and Funky
This Arts and Crafts home is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Heathered Moss with staggered edge HardieShingle siding in Countrylane Red in the small, top gable. The red hue matches both of the home’s doors for a cohesive and creative looking appearance.
Making Blue Waves
This perspective shows off the staggered edge HardieShingle siding in Boothbay Blue as you would see it looking up at your home. The varied lengths of the shingles seem to add movement, like gentle waves in a pond.
