Posted by Kyle Boatwright on 5/4/18 2:30 PM

What are brackets?

Brackets On HouseBrackets are a decorative architectural element common in Victorian style and historical replication buildings, included where the exterior wall of a building meets the underside of an arch, balcony, or overhanging eaves. Brackets can be made out of wood, metal, stone, or a variety of other building materials, and help to carry weight or strengthen angles.

Brackets can be used indoors or outdoors, and are commonly used under window ledges, shelves, eaves, balconies, window boxes, and more. Most brackets are decorative, but some brackets also have structural functionalities.

What do brackets contribute to a building or project?

Whether you are working on a new building, remodeling, restoring a historic building, or just want to add a decorative touch to your home, brackets are a necessary element for the most authentic look. Brackets are decorative and add elegance to any building or home.

Why are your brackets made of polyurethane?

Worthington Millwork's brackets are made of high density urethane, either polyurethane or coral stone polyurethane. Polyurethane is a durable polymer that offers both flexibility and structural integrity, providing high quality while demanding low maintenance.

Coral stone polyurethane, in particular, is a lightweight faux stone that will add character to your building's overall aesthetic. These high density urethane brackets are resistance to weather and come pre-primed with high-quality exterior latex for you to paint over and complete with the color of your choice.

Our polyurethane material was designed to mimic wood, and is even  installed like wood, but unlike wood, it will last forever. Investing in polyurethane brackets is a way to invest in your home for the long term.

Worthington Millwork offers a large variety of brackets for all tastes and styles, from simple arches to complex designs. Whether you prefer a straightforward, elegant bracket or a robust bracket full of character and personality, Worthington Millwork is sure to have something for you.
