Ornamental roof crestings were a common sight in the late nineteenth century. The crest on every roof, the crown on every cupola or widow’s walk, these decorative appointments commanded the eye skyward. They were the architectural finishing touch in an era obsessed with detail.

With today’s renewed interest in historic preservation of our architectural heritage, demand for such crestings is growing. As in the Victorian Era, they are the finishing touch in making your home a showplace, whether your home is a vintage house of the Victorian Era or a Retro-Architectural home commonly seen in new construction. Capital Crestings add a touch of class and authenticity to your period home.

Our updated web site offers 23 stock designs. Matching finial / corner posts and snowguards are also offered for each cresting design, and are recommended as the finishing touches that make your installation breathtaking.
