Description of Viga Tails with Mounting Flange
Vigas are a key element in Southwestern architecture. Traditionally used in what is often referred to as the Santa Fe style, viga tails historically were the bits of wooden log that stuck out from an adobe home. Often the vigas were stripped of their bark and washed and served to support the ceiling. Bring interest and flare to exteriors of homes and buildings by adding a charming row of viga tails.
Unlike real wood, faux viga tails won’t crack, split or rot. They are virtually maintenance-free, insect-proof, great-looking and easy to install.
- Great architectural enhancement! Dramatic change for minimal investment
- Easy to install
- Durable in all climates

We painted & installed 29 viga tails w/flange on our house in 2 days. The 36-yr. old vigas were mostly held together w/LOTS of caulk & originally installed inside exterior wall. We sawed them off to approx. 4 inches, slipped the faux viga over it & caulked it to wall. They look FANTASTIC! These vigas are all even (no droops like before). The service by this company all the way to the delivery trucking co. they use was excellent; friendly, helpful people. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
I have had these viga tails for 5 years or so and they look as good now as day 1. Moderate project putting them up...took both me and my wife maybe 30 minutes per tail all work included (including painting). Well worth it!
Used Model # VT-1610 10" x 16". Had fun staining. Used Minwax Gel Stain Aged Oak and top coated with Minwax Helmsman Exterior Clear Satin Spar Urethane. Stage 1 constructon. Just installed today 3-27-14. Had to wait for waterproofing to go on exterior. Will send more pictures after finish coat goes on. Changed mind on where to put. Ordered 1- more. Please rush if possible. Thank you
product had broken rims which made the instalation even more difficult on old construction. However now that its done I expect years of a natural wood look!
I am wery pleased with the quality of the viga tails. Post-stucco installation will take some modification as explained in the included instructions. Had to wait the full promised 8 weeks for delivery. I will be buying more.
Installation was very easy and they are beautiful. They look exactly like real wood. The old tails rotted out. The only question is durability but I suspect they will last a long time. I did not need the flanges and they were cut off as recommended. My batch was extremely well packed and there was no shipping damage.
I love these viga tails, they look great up close or far away. Shipping is a concern, almost half arrived with broken flanges.
Our old vega beams rotted and fell off. The new faux vega tails were easy to install and look fabulous. we've had many neighbors comment on how good they look.
