Exposure to the elements over time can cause exterior wood trim to warp, crack, wear, and rot. This may be a cosmetic issue at first, but if not corrected, damage to trim can allow water to seep further into your home’s siding and exterior features, causing more extensive damage. While the elements will inevitably take their toll on your home’s trim, you can count on the dedicated professional house painters at Curb Appeal Painting to repair or even replace your wood trim.
Steps to Repair Wood Trim
Our wood trim repair process will vary depending on your specific needs, but the following steps are generally executed by our paint professionals to ensure your wood trim is meticulously repaired and restored:
First, we always complete a thorough inspection of your wood trim condition. We’ll walk around your home’s exterior to check out the wood trim surrounding windows, doors, etc., searching for holes, cracks, and loose, damaged, or rotting wood. Once this is complete, our professionals determine what fixes can be made with a simple repair job vs. where any of the wood trim will need to be replaced.
Our next step is to get started on repairs. If your wood trim isn’t excessively damaged or rotten, a few quick repairs are all you’ll need to get your trim looking good as new. Loose trim will be securely fastened to the wall. Cracks can be filled with caulk. Using best practices, we will ensure that old caulk, debris, and paint is thoroughly removed first. We always watch out for the weather when applying caulk, too. Since weather during application can affect the longevity and effectiveness of caulk, we only apply it during optimal temperatures and conditions. Exterior wood filler is also used to patch cracks along structurally sound trim, which is then sanded down and wiped clean to bring trim back to its former glory.
Wood trim that is severely damaged or rotted will need to be replaced. This can be achieved by carefully prying damaged trim for the wall and attaching carefully measured new trim in its place. Any further holes and blemishes will also be covered using the process described above.
If your wood trim hasn’t been primed, painted, or stained in a while, it is often worth giving the entire area a quality paint job for a fresh, cohesive look.
