The finishing on your window replacement project is a large component of your home’s curb appeal. You want to choose trims and colors that have just the right amount of character while still blending seamlessly with the rest of your architectural style. Unfortunately, finding the perfect design and finish is one of those things that is easier said than done.
It might seem like design choices are best left to a professional but don’t let this mean you can’t have any input. There are a few steps you can take that can be instrumental in finding an exterior trim style perfect for both your replacement windows and your home, and our experts at Ashmen Installation Inc. listed them down below.
Types of Window Trims
From simple cornice pieces to intricately detailed millwork, trims come in a wide variety of shapes, styles and sizes. Many window companies offer custom trims as one of the features of their replacement window services. Choosing exterior trims should depend mostly on the style of your home.
Ranch-style ramblers, for example, prefer simple trims with little to no embellishments and details on their picture and casement windows. Craftsmen and American Prairie designs rely on wide trims to give their exterior a visual “break,” and provide their homes with a more cohesive aesthetic. There are plenty of resources available that can help you find the right type of trim for your windows or you can always talk to our professionals and get help sorting through the many choices.
Maintaining Window Trims
While window trims are more for looks than function, they can still benefit from regular cleaning and maintenance. Ask your window installers and maintenance providers for any programs that could help take the stress away of keeping track of your window care routine.
