Reasons to Repaint or Replace Your Exterior Trim
While trim has no effect on your home’s energy efficiency, structural integrity, or fire-resistance rating, it’s still a very important part of the exterior.
Exterior trim includes the following features:
Window and door moldings
Decorative and functional louvers
Decorative masonry and stucco work
Without trim, your home would look incomplete. The transition between building materials would be stark and awkward looking. As you examine the condition of your exterior trim, consider these reasons to repair or replace certain portions:
The trim is outdated: Whether the color no longer matches your siding, or the style of trim is old-fashioned, an update could make a huge difference in the way your home looks. You should consider repainting or refinishing the trim first. Look into making a replacement if the style is out of date.
The trim is damaged: From peeling paint to trim that has come disconnected from the side of your house, a simple repair and refinish may be all you need to restore damaged trim. Even minor work such as sanding and repainting the trim or nailing loose portions back in place can significantly improve your home’s curb appeal.
The trim is rotted: Molding, trellises, half-timber work, and other exterior wood accents are subject to water damage and rot. This problem can sneak up on you because sometimes rotted trim doesn’t stand out. That’s why you should put wood trim to the test every few months by pressing your fingernail against it. If your nail makes an indent in the wood, this means the trim is rotted and should be replaced. Don’t ignore this problem or the rot could spread to other areas of your home, such as the siding, windows, and structural beams.
