Most homeowners would agree that it’s the little touches that often make the difference between a nice home and a beautiful home. One of those little touches is the addition of high-quality trim. Not only will it improve the look of your home, but it will also provide an extra layer of protection against the ravages of nature. At JDT Construction, we provide the quality workmanship that you deserve and demand.
Popular Trim Manufacturers That We Carry:
When you hire us to do the job, you can choose from the very best trim on the market. We carry a wide range of trim products, and you can bet that we’ve got just the thing to fit your style. We’ve got everything from natural wood to synthetics and everything in between.
We offer trim from the following manufacturers:
Before you choose one of these companies, however, you should first decide which kind of trim you would like to install. In order to determine this, you will need to ask yourself three questions:
- What material would I like to use?
- What style do I want or need?
- What color do I want or need?
Only after you have answered these three questions will you be ready to choose a manufacturer and purchase the best trim that you will ever buy. So, let’s start by looking at the materials that we offer.
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is probably the same material of which your plumbing pipes are made. It’s a durable plastic that has recently become very popular for both siding and trim. PVC makes good trim for the same reason that it makes good pipes: It’s hard to break, it’s resistant to weathering, it lasts practically forever, and it’s easy to cut and hang.
Several of the companies that we carry offer excellent PVC trim products, and we will work with you to choose the best one. All PVC trim comes in white only, but it can be painted to whatever color you desire. Because this is a moldable material, PVC boards can be made with any shape or texture that you want, with woodgrain being the most popular. Stone textures are also available, as are shingle patterns.
It is recommended that you use acrylic latex paint for these boards, as they are somewhat flexible. PVC boards can bend to avoid breaking, and they will tend to flex a tiny bit during the coldest and hottest parts of the year. As long as the paint is also flexible, you should have no problems.
Fiber Cement Trim
Our fiber cement trim comes straight from James Hardie, the company that invented these types of boards. They are made of wood fibers that have been impregnated with cement, hence the name. These boards are revolutionizing the home improvement industry, as they are low in cost and high in quality. They cannot rot, they cannot burn, they cannot grow mold or mildew, and they never flex, even in the harshest of weather.
Fiber cement can break with a hard enough impact, but this isn’t a problem because it’s so inexpensive to replace, and it takes a very hard hit to break one of these boards anyway. They can be made with any shape or texture desired. As such, we can install Hardie boards that look like wood, stone, or even stucco. Also, these boards are pre-primed for easy painting, and that makes it easier for you to get whichever color you have chosen.
Invented by our friends at Boral, this product is a truly innovative trim solution made from materials that you would never expect: Coal ash (AKA fly-ash) and a proprietary mix of special polymers. All of these boards can be painted easily with no priming.
Perhaps the best thing about these boards is their extreme resistance to moisture. You can even install poly-ash boards against the ground, regardless of wet conditions. These boards will not be degraded by moisture under any circumstances. This makes it a fine option for areas that frequently see heavy rains and muddy ground. And of course, this also makes it impossible for these boards to grow mold or fungus.
Choosing the Right Color and Style
This part is largely a matter of your tastes. However, you should take care to match your trim to the rest of your home. It’s always a good idea to stick with different shades of the same color. For instance, if your house has dark blue siding, you might want to go with light blue trim. Choosing similar colors will ensure that your home is both colorful and tasteful at the same time.
Choosing the style of your trim is a little bit more fun because you can get a little more creative. As with trim, you should try to choose something that fits your home, but we cater to all tastes. We offer so many styles that you should have no problem choosing the one that will give your home the perfect accents that you desire.
