Is your home’s exterior missing that something special needed to help it stand out from the rest of the neighborhood? One easy way to add instant beauty and style to the property is by topping it with a finial. A finial is a decorative accent attached to the uppermost point of a building. Finials are often installed on roof peaks, crown cupolas and even gazebos. They offer homeowners a simple way to create a more custom look to their homes exterior without completing a large renovation. They help add visual interest to the roofline utilizing an often forgotten aspect of a property’s architecture.
Dating back to the Middle Ages, finials have a rich history within the architectural world. Once used to top castles, they can now be found on virtually any type of building from high-end hotels to historic churches. Today’s homeowners are also using finials to add more interest to their homes exterior while accenting its unique character. Especially for higher-end or historic homes, finials can be a great way to accessorize the façade without the major upkeep or maintenance needs of other types of additions.
