The current economy is causing homeowners to consider upgrading their homes to help them sell faster. Often the deciding factor in what upgrades a homeowner focuses on, relates to whether or not the upgrade will translate into real dollars when the house is placed on the market. What can make a home standout in the marketplace? What creates added curb appeal? Statistics show that by customizing your exterior trim can increase the value of a home by $7,300 – $10,000.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) trim has the look of wood without the maintenance. The trim will not rot or warp or sustain damage from rain, sun or snow. The uses of PVC trim are only limited by your imagination. The flexibility of these trim products enables its use for decorative purposes or to simply accent windows and porch areas.
Exterior trim can be left white for ultra low maintenance or painted as a decorative feature (which has a longer life than painted wood). Lighter colors can use any acrylic latex paint; darker colors need paint with light reflectance technology like Sherwin-Williams VinylSafe paint.
Long term durability is a critical component to exterior home renovation. By utilizing products that add curb appeal and require minimal maintenance you can add longer lasting beauty to a home.
