Exterior moulding to change the house appearance

Exterior moulding changes the appearance of granny flats BrisbaneAre you looking to make some changes to the exterior look of your house; then why not try some external mouldings?  There are a number of different profiles to choose; from classical facades to ultra-modern.

Exterior moulding can be used to frame windows, doors and the sides of a home and are available in a wide variety of styles and types. Exterior trim and moulding can also add detail to roof lines, gables or porches.  

As a visual, aesthetic element to exterior home design, moulding is a simple and inexpensive way to remodel or update a home's exterior.

Wood moulding is one of the less common moulding options because of its tendency to warp with exposure to heat and moisture. However, wood can be handcrafted into several elaborate design styles, making it an ideal choice for restored historical homes. 

Plastic exterior moulding is a more common material choice because it is resistant to weather damage. It is typically a single, solid piece, which means that some designs that are possible in handcrafted wood moulding are not possible in plastic moulding. 

It's important to choose exterior moulding in a style and colour that compliments the overall exterior design of the home, as well as the surrounding landscape. For example, a minimalist home with simplistic moulding is better than ornately detailed handcrafted wood moulding.

They look like high end concrete but weigh only a fraction as much - and often cost only a fraction as much as well.  

They can be installed during the initial construction of a home or building, or added on as decorative moulding after construction.  Installation is as easy as adhering them to the wall surface. With a wide range of finish options available, lightweight building products can also make your finished project look amazing! And the insulation properties of the products give you an added benefit (and value to your property). 

Window sills not only increase the curb appeal of your windows, but are also designed to prevent water damage around windows. Sills are designed with a slope running from back to front to force water away from your windows, preventing water from accumulating and leaking into your windows preventing rot or mould growth because of water and moisture.

Because of this, exterior sills make an ideal window sill replacement for those who have known the trouble of replacing a window sill. Exterior sills may be adhered to brick, stone, stucco, ICF and EIFS and siding.

Exterior moulding contributes to a home's value by increasing the curb appeal of the home. Selecting appropriate exterior moulding is an essential component to home renovation. Exterior trim and moulding also provides an opportunity to add colour to a home's exterior. Trim and moulding make a home look finished, increasing the overall value of the home. 

When our clients are looking for a building design that makes their house stand out from their neighbours, whether it’s for a residential home,  granny flat or kit home, we will often make suggestions to vary the design by using different profiles of external moulding.

  1. Exterior moulding for changing house appearance sounds perfect for the people living in hot area. But for the people who live in cold area, this idea seems to fail as people there rely on heating contractors NJ for making there home warm through various heating systems.
