The Shingle style home is distinctly American and traces its beginnings to the late 19th century. The style is a direct result of a renewed interest in Colonial American architecture happening at that time, as well as a desire to move away from the highly ornate Victorian style that had become widespread. Often wrapped in unpainted cedar shingles, these unmistakable, picturesque homes embrace a natural, more casual style with a minimum of classical details, especially in comparison to Victorian style homes.

Shingle style windows typically have wide, flat trim, often measuring 3-1/2" to 4-1/2" on the sides and head. The sill nose is usually 1-1/2" to 2-1/2". It is also common for windows to be trimmed with brick mould. Occasionally, flat trim and brick mould may be used on the same house.
To achieve that authentic Shingle styling, or to create a variance all your own, A-Series products provide a choice of three exterior trim profiles and three head trim options; with 11 colors to choose from. For a historically accurate look, our E-Series/Eagle windows and doors are available with expandable brick mould casing to re-create the look of backband, comes in 50 exterior colors, custom colors, and anodized finishes.
Single style window hardware features simple, often crisp lines and functional forms. Elements integral to the style include hinges, sash lifts and locks with simple and understated decoration. Antique brass and oil rubbed bronze finishes are most authentic for the style.
Quintessential doors feature substantially sized hardware in a distressed bronze or aged brass finish. Commonly, an opener, deadbolt, mail slot and house numbers are all part of the front door area, each as a stand-alone element. A thumb latch opener is typical on the front door exterior while a knob is common on the interior. Andersen Yuma® hardware is the ideal choice for Shingle style homes. Made of solid, forged brass for a substantial look and feel, Yuma hardware features rectangular faceplates and smooth curving handgrips that are trademarks of Shingle style hardware.
