Traditionally, rafter tail designs were created by the ends of the wood roof beams on houses. They had a distinctive look that brought a lot of charm to a home. Nowadays, while those kinds of beams are no longer necessary for many homes, many people love the look of rafter tails accenting the roofline.
Rafter tails are a fabulous way to add character and style to your home. They can be used as a subtle interior accent in your home design, as well as to create a dramatic upgrade on your home’s exterior.
