Exterior Painting in Longrove Trim
Just like exterior painting in Longrove any surface there are a few options that can enhance the overall look. The most satisfying part of painting is putting the finishing touches on the exterior trim. This will tie the entire look of the home together. Exterior trim can be defined as any attached surface that isn't painted the same as the body, main color, and is highlighted with a contrasting color. These features include assorted wood trim, fascia boards, gutters and downspouts or even the soffits. The exterior house trim can encompass almost any surface and will define your houses outline.
After the colors for the exterior trim are decided you will have one more idea to consider. How much of the trim will be the body color and how much will be the trim color?
It is more common to extend the body color to cover the outside edge of the trim. The trim color is applied to the face only. This is "Facing Off" the trim. The other option is to paint the face and the edge(s) that are next to the body with the trim color. This is "Wrapping" the trim.
Facing the trim is the quickest and easiest way to paint exterior house trim. While wrapping the edges can drastically increase the time and effort needed to get the job done. These two options can be combined on the same home. Wrap trim at eye level to add extra depth and use the simpler facing method on the rest of the house.
