Add elegance and value to your home with interior trim

By Rosario Ungaro

Few things can make as big a difference to a room as adding interior trim. 

Trim can run along the wall at the floor (baseboards), around doors and windows, along the wall at chair height (chair rails) or along the wall at the ceiling (crown mouldings). Trim can be used to enhance interior shelving or around fireplaces. Individual trim pieces can be used or they can be combined to create a custom look. By combining individual pieces together you get a custom look without the cost of having the piece custom done for you.

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.
