The CB-1198 Corbel is 14-1/4" tall, 11-5/8" wide, 6" deep, and has a white Primer finish.
These corbels are for decorative use only. These should not be used for any structural support.
Corbels have literally been around since the Stone Age. Their primary purpose was to help carry the weight of buildings - but the Greeks, Romans, and many other cultures helped turn them into true works of art!
Below countertops and cabinets, along doorways and arches, there are countless applications for these beautiful pieces, and they are incredibly easy to install. Made from polyurethane, they are lightweight, easy to handle, and amazingly durable.
uDecor accent features are manufactured with a dense architectural polyurethane compound (not Styrofoam) that allows them to be very durable and 100% waterproof. A major advantage of polyurethane is that it is safe to install in rooms with the presence of moisture like bathrooms and kitchens. This product will not encourage the growth of mold or mildew.
Our accent pieces arrive pre-primed and ready for paint. It is easier to paint the decor before installation. Touch up any imperfections after you are done with the install. ALWAYS test a section with your paint of choice before committing to painting all of your decor. Paint formulations change all the time and you want to be sure there is no adverse interaction between your paint and the primer on the decor.
Accent pieces are installed using architectural adhesive and/or finishing nails. Lightly mark where your decor will be placed. Apply an appropriate adhesive like Loctite Power Grab or PL Premium to the back of the decor. Use low tack painter's tape to secure the decor to the wall while the adhesive sets.
Finishing The Job-
Use Spackle to fill in nail holes and painters caulk on the edges for a professional finish.

Unlike a car, there is very little that can go wrong with a polyurethane product since polyurethane doesn't absorb moisture and won't be affected by insects. However, in the rare event that you do encounter a defect with your product, we're here and ready to help. Just give us a call and we'll work with you to identify the problem and, in case of defect, supply you with replacements.

Our polyurethane corbels are decoration only and are not load bearing.
Lightly mark with a pencil where your decor will be placed using a level to make sure it will be plumb when installed.
Dry fit your pieces before applying the adhesive.
Many of our decorative pieces have very intricate details and because of their final location can be very hard to finish once installed. We recommend painting your decor before installing it. You can then touch up any areas that need attention after the installation is complete.
The adhesive should be beaded along the touching edges of the wall and then a few small nails will hold the decor in place while the adhesive sets. You can use any adhesive that is rated for use with polyurethane (check the back of the label) -- we have had great success using Red Devil Construction Adhesive, Loctite Powergrab and PL Premium Polyurethane Adhesive, all of which work well and are readily available at most home improvement stores.
On the back side, run a 1/4" continuous bead of adhesive around the outer edge of the decor.
Place the decor using your marks to align. Verify that the decor is level before firmly pushing into position. If necessary, use masking tape or small finish nails to hold the decor in place until the adhesive dries. Do not nail or screw into our gold products.
Clean up any adhesive mishaps with a cloth.
Apply caulk to the edges to create the appearance that the decor is part the wall. Touch up with paint as needed.

I used this corbel in the center of a 72" transom over a pair of interior French doors. It is stunning! I will use another one on the exterior wall as well.
