Every home has trim work on its exterior. You can find trims around the doors, windows, chimneys, gutters, corners, and space where the walls and floors meet. If it’s evident that the wood trimmings in your home have rotted, then there is an alternative to replacing them. PVC trimming is the solution. PVC moulding is ideal for exterior trim precisely because it won’t warp, split, or rot. Today we’ll share more detail about what’s so positive about PVC trimming.
PVC is Durable
One common area that you can find PVC in your home is in your plumbing system. PVC is plastic, which means that water does not affect it. It’s common in home remodeling for contractors to replace exterior trim with PVC trim boards because of how low-maintenance they are. This material is also known for its longevity.
PVC can Replicate Wood
We’re a full-service lumber company. So, of course, we often talk about the benefits that wood has to offer. But at the same time, we know that there are benefits to using other materials for your home remodeling process, as well. You can cut, nail, screw, or paint PVC trimming in the same manner as wood mouldings. So, if you like the look of wood but want all of the durability and less of the maintenance, then choosing this option is the way to go.
PVC Can Blend Into Your Existing Mouldings
Because PVC comes in white, it needs painting to match the existing trim. Because you can cut PVC into multiple shapes and sizes, it will be hard to distinguish between any neighboring trim that you or a contractor did not replace.PVC trimmings indeed cost more than wooden trimmings. However, the low-maintenance factor, along with the material not decomposing, makes it well worth it.
