Types of Exterior Trim
Back in the day, you could only get wood trim for your home. But those days are long gone. Innovative materials allow homeowners to find the style they love and a price tag that fits with their budget. Broadly, the surface material is divided into two categories:
Including: Cedar, pine, redwood, fir
Including: Cellular PVC, composite, plastic, fiber cement, particleboard
How to Find the Right Trim for Your Home
Deciding on the right trim or moulding for your exterior can feel a little like matchmaking. It is, after all, a element of your home that you’re counting on to have staying power. So it’s important to carefully consider a few things in the decisionmaking process:
- Architectural style: What look will best complement your home – and its established design concepts?
- Budget: How much are you willing to invest in this home improvement project?
- Maintenance: Do you want trim that you can forget about after installation, or are you willing to invest in some periodic maintenance?
