What are L-Headers?

Posted By Volterra Jul 29, 2015

L-headers. L-headers are wood or replicated wood, horizontal planks or beams that are used to frame a window or entryway. Adding L-headers above the front windows, doorways, and garage doors are a very simple way to enhance architectural style, which instantly uplifts a home’s curb appeal. Volterra’s faux wood L-headers are a practical, affordable, durable and lightweight alternative to wooden headers. They’re 1-inch thick and available in any width, height and length to accommodate the size of your windows or entryways. Covering all the bases, faux wood L-headers from Volterra conveniently come in several simulated wood textures as well as multiple wood grain stain colors, ranging from dark, rich espresso to light oak. Once you see what a difference a small accessory can make to the front side, you’ll want to add L-headers around the whole house, including the pergola or trellis in the garden landscape. Made from high-density foam (HDF), unlike real wood, our faux wood products are made to withstand the outdoor elements. These beautiful and functional L-headers resist warping, cracking, splitting, rotting, swelling and pest infestation. Volterra’s decorative L-headers can be used together with our other products, such as our faux wood shutters, corbels and brackets to take the exterior of your home one style-step further.
