When we think of curb appeal, we most likely think of beautiful flower gardens, neatly trimmed, emerald lawns, freshly painted siding, and a couple of white rockers swaying on the swept front porch. Of course, it’s all that and more. Adding architectural details to the curb-side of your house not only adds value if you were to list your home, but adds visual interest that makes your home stand out among all others. Here are some unique architectural elements using Inteplast Building Products Exterior Trim products that we bet you never considered.
Arches and Curves
Not just for interior doorways, arched and curved trim can make a huge aesthetic impact on the outside of your house too. Inteplast’s trim has all the visual appeal of wood, without the natural flaws, but it also has more design flexibility because of its heatability. You can create custom shapes and curves through an advanced heat-bending process for unlimited craftsman applications. In addition, IP’s embossing technology keeps the wood grain patterns intact during the heat bending process to maintain the authentic looking wood texture. Inteplast’s trim board can be shaped and bent to finish off curved decks and porches, archways, and circular or oval window surrounds.
Cornices and Columns
Once historical staples of home construction, cornices and columns are popular in modern designs as well. These architectural millwork products are not only for load bearing applications, but they’re often used for pure decoration. Jazzing up the eaves of a porch or overhang with Inteplast’s decorative, moisture-resistant millwork products you can create some low-maintenance drama with cornices, columns, and brackets in an economical way.
