Custom Trim: Sometimes The Simplest Renovations Can Make The Greatest Change
All homeowners know that poorly installed, warped or damaged trim can make an entire space look run-down and cheap. But can a custom trim upgrade actually enrich a home?
Here at Tri-County General Contracting, we believe any home improvement will do that just – improve! Whether that means the aesthetic value or a home’s tangible resale value or both. It’s sometimes a matter of perspective, but more often than naught investments made in a home, especially one that can clearly beautify a space, get paid back upon sale. Revamping your old, builder-grade trim with taller, more sleek and more intricate custom trim from Tri-County is guaranteed to wow visitors and real estate agents alike.
Choosing The Right Custom Trim
It’s always a good idea for custom trim to match the home’s prevailing style. For homes built and furnished in a colonial style, use trim that matches. Modern styled house should use modern trim. Tri-County is here to answer all homeowners’ questions, especially when they decide to upgrade the trim in a room, a wing, or even in an entire house.
Custom trim varies by size, style and color, and Tom and his team at Tri-County can help you find the perfect match for your project. We work with many industry-leading trim manufacturers, allowing us to provide homeowners with great selection at unbeatable prices per square foot. Whether you’re leaning toward natural wood or engineered zero maintenance material, we can build a custom trim that’s just right.
Type Of Custom Trim Vs. Cost
Though every custom trim job is different, installing new trim in a standard-sized family home might cost less than expected. Here are some price ranges for a typical 300-square-foot living room by custom trim type:
- Crown Molding: A revamp with three-and-one-quarter-inch crown molding can start around $1,000 for a whole room. Crown molding makes any room look more elegant, but makes an especially grand statement in rooms with tall ceilings.
- Fancier Baseboards: Replacing builder-grade baseboards with four-and-one-quarter-inch trim costs about $700 for the room. Homeowners usually opt to replace baseboard trim throughout the entire house at once, though, to make it match.
- Window and Door Casing: Surrounding a standard window or door with slightly larger, more ornate casing costs about $200 per window.
- Wainscoting: This type of trim covers the bottom portion of a wall with a cap on top. It lends a more traditional rather than modern feel to a home. It fits best in more formal rooms, like living and dining rooms.
