If it is time to replace your exterior trim please consider the composite for a look that will last and requires minimum maintenance.
Composite trim offers the advantages of wood and none of the limitations.
In the past, wood trim generically held up well and was a beautiful addition to any home exterior. Now, most wood is “farm-raised” and grows fast, resulting in a less dense product. This less dense wood trim doesn’t hold up well to the elements and begins to decay much sooner, even with priming.
Composite trim comes in a wide variety of styles and finishes with the look of real wood, but it requires none of the maintenance wood trim requires. Composite trim does not split, crack, rot or absorb moisture — and best of all — termites ignore it!
