When it comes to your home, every detail matters no matter how small it is, and that goes the same for trim. While it’s primarily seen as just the finishing touch of your home exterior, it actually serves an important function.
Advanced Roofing, one of your go-to local roof repair contractors in the area, shares how trim can enhance your home’s exterior:
Trim does more than just being a decorative piece of your home. With the right material, it prevents moisture from damaging the key elements of your exterior. Fiber cement trim is one of the most durable options because it doesn’t rot, warp, and sag. Vinyl is also a great choice because it doesn’t need scraping, staining, or painting.
Added Texture and Depth
Trim can create a unique focal point for your home. Without it, your home exterior would be just a series of continuous surfaces. You can use trim to break the monotony and accentuate certain features of your home, such as around your windows and doors, or between the fascia and soffit of residential roofing systems. Depending on your style, you may consider cedar grain texture or smooth finish for your trim.
Playful Color Combinations
Lastly, the trim completes the look of your home. Since it’s typically lighter than siding, it allows for color variation without being distracting. You can opt for contrasting bright white tones and dark grey tones, which can result in a sharper look.
