Trim Replacements in Orange, San Diego & Los Angeles County, CA
Getting your trim replaced is a great way to freshen up the look of your home and make it stand out. Plus, if you ever think about selling your home in the future, this is what attracts buyers the most.
You only get one chance to make a good first impression, after all.
The best time to check out your trim is during the autumn months. Take a walk around your home and observe the trim around the windows and doors, corners and towards the roofline.
Problems to watch out for include:
- Peeling/Blistering Paint
- Mold and Mildew
- Spongy or Soft Spots along the Trim
- Warped Boards
- Termite Damage
If your trim is too damaged to be saved, then your only option is to have it replaced. If you have good carpentry skills you can attempt to replace it yourself, but the best option is to get a contractor or somebody that specializes in home remodeling.
The Perfect Trim
At first glance, a traditional wood trim looks perfect when it’s newly installed. But wood trim can swell and split and is very prone to knots and defects. Look into getting fiber cement trim or PVC installed, instead.
Fiber-Cement trim is a mixture of wood-fiber reinforcement, cement, and sand. It’s durable, fire resistant, stable and immune to sunlight, water, and insect damage. If you opt to get your fiber-cement trim painted, the paint lasts for a very long time. Unlike most wood products, there is no stress under the coating, and it’s also immune to water.
The downside is that fiber-cement is a bit more challenging to work with than regular wood. However, having trim that doesn’t decay and is easy to manage is well worth the effort.
