Colonial Home Trim

Updating your colonial home’s exterior with long-lasting and maintenance-free trim that looks just as good (if not better) than the original, will revitalize the outside appearance of your home and restore it to it’s original beauty.

According to Better Homes and Gardens, Colonial style homes are one of the most popular types of home styles in America. With it’s distinct use of geometry and influences from European countries like England and Spain, the Colonial home has been a staple in America since it’s inception.

Old Colonial Home with Trim

Colonial homes can be seen throughout New England and the Southern states, each sub type has its own unique features, influenced from the environment and culture around them. Many have stood the test of time while others are newer built, colonial inspired homes. No matter if your home is an original or a modern revival, replacing your exterior trim will enrich the character of your home.

Before and After Colonial Remodel

The first thing someone sees when they arrive at a home is the exterior. What your home represents can be seen from the outside. This is why Colonial homes are one of the most liked styles throughout the country, its symmetry and bold, clean lines stand out among the crowd. Your home could stand out for another reason that is not so pleasing to the eye either. If your exterior trim is made out of wood, over time it will splinter, rot, and devalue your home’s property and overall look. Though wood trim is the original building material of choice when it comes to colonials, a next generation material is coming to age to replace it.

PVC trim is made out of cellular materials that will not rot, corrode, or swell overtime. The look for PVC is equivalent to white pine wood. It is quite hard to see the difference between wood and PVC trim when it comes to appearance, but behind it is a high-quality durable material that will keep your Colonial trim timeless.

Wood Trim vs. PVC Trim

Over time, wood trim begins to rot and needs to be replaced, while PVC trim looks new year after year.

News organizations and industry-leading media outfits consider exterior trim remodeling one of the top ten property boosting projects homeowners could undertake.

The National Association of Realtors said,

“Realtors® know what home features are important to buyers in their area, but a home’s curb appeal is always critical since it’s the first impression for potential buyers. That’s why exterior replacement projects offer the greatest bang for the buck. Projects such as entry door, siding and window replacements can recoup homeowners more than 78 percent of costs upon resale.”

Colonial homes capture the regal and dignified characteristic of its time with symmetry and simplicity. Maintaining a colonial home doesn’t have to be difficult anymore. When it came to wood trim, it would look great on the first day of installation. But day after day, the wood eventually erodes and needs to be replaced. That is why Trim Solutions has developed patented technology that is incomparable in both price and quality to any other exterior PVC trim on the market.

Easy installation equals easy maintenance. Revitalize your colonial home and be the talk of the neighborhood with unique patented exterior trim that defines quality and beauty for a lifetime.
