Unsure where to start? Shop Samples

Faux Wood Viga Tails have the same beautiful characteristics of real wood logs, but require virtually no maintenance and don’t decay, split, rot or deteriorate. The wood grain texture adds tremendous beauty to any home’s interior or exterior in an economical way. Add faux wood Viga Tails with Flange to your new home's construction, or choose a size and style without the flange to replace those old, weather-beaten real wooden tails. Available in a variety of sizes and finishes, or call us to order custom sizes and finishes to meet the specific needs of your project.


Some of the most distinctive features of Southwestern homes are the viga tails on the exterior of the building. Traditional adobe architecture used tree trunks, called vigas, as beams to support the roof. The ends of the vigas, known as viga tails, stick out through the exterior of the building. Today any home can easily incorporate viga tails for the distinctive Southwestern design style.

Vigas can be installed using either a mechanical fastener, such as a threaded rod, or with adhesive. If using adhesive the viga tail will need to be nailed in place while the adhesive dries (about 24 hours). See our installation instructions under resources for details on how to install a replacement viga tail.
