Now that spring is finally here, many homeowners are stepping out to take a good long look at the exteriors of their homes to assess winter damage and consider new features that could increase the value and add lasting beauty to their homes. Splashing on a fresh coat of paint, patching a leaky roof, replacing rotten porch posts and sagging valances, and repairing fences and railings are among the many renovation projects that can spruce up a home for summer enjoyment. But before launching into any outdoor renovation or building project, experts suggest that homeowners choose building materials wisely.
“If old building materials are replaced with weather resistant materials like PVC, future repairs can be virtually eliminated,” said Jim Goodman, General Manager of Turnkey Millwork, a Raleigh, North Carolina manufacturer of a wide range of low maintenance PVC specialty millwork products at affordable prices. Turnkey Millwork is the leading manufacturer of custom PVC millwork products such as exterior decorative columns, porch posts, architectural millwork, split decorative columns, valances, window trim, brackets, trellises, pergolas, decorative rail panels and interior decorative columns, etc.
Goodman points out that unlike wood, building synthetic materials such as composites, vinyl or cellular PVC are unaffected by moisture or insects, and are designed to last practically maintenance-free for many years to come. Other important benefits to consider are that unlike wood, many of these materials are fire-resistant and can be transformed into practically any decorative custom design desired, all for just about the same price as wood.
“These products offer unlimited design possibilities because the materials allow for really beautiful, custom fabrication that can create a unique, sophisticated look for any home at very affordable prices,” Goodman explained. “We want people to know that they don’t have to settle for ordinary off-the-shelf products when for about the same amount of money they can enjoy a custom hand-made product especially designed to set their home apart from the rest. Plus, our hands-on craftsmen, with extensive real-world building experience are here to answer your building questions and meet your needs. All of our products are available to wholesalers, one-step distributors, retail lumberyards, builders, architects, contractors and homeowners alike.”
For do-it-yourselfers, these products also offer quick easy installation, usually in just a matter of a few steps. Instead of a hammer and nails you simply screw most of them in place. With such ease of installation, you might also consider adding new features designed to enhance outdoor living space such as decks, patios, and railings. Other customized structures might include a stunning pergola, trellis, or arbor that further define your outdoor spaces, by creating a unique architectural blend that places you both inside and out at the same time.
The best part of renovating and building with these weather resistant products is that next winter when Mother Nature come roaring through, homeowners can sit by the fire with a smile knowing that next spring their projects will still look like new.
