Adding windows to your home can be a great way to give your home energy efficient improvements and a new look. Sometimes, replacement windows may not do much for the outdoor appearance and lack things like trim features, which is why you may want to consider improvements to the trim like adding wider ledges, more details and other features. Here are some ideas that you may want to consider to change the look of your new window replacements:
1. Adding Window Seals And Ledges That Give Windows Depth
One of the things that you may want to consider doing for your windows is adding new seals and ledges. The ledges outside your windows will help add depth and shadows to your new windows for a unique look. They also provide a practical solution, giving you the option for putting objects like plants and decorations outside your window seal. You can choose from a variety of different sizes of ledges and trim options to install for your windows.
2. Trim Over Exterior Finishes That Do Not Already Have Trim
In some cases, exterior finishes like brick may limit the details that can be added with trim around your windows. This can easily be solved by installing the trim over the exterior materials. To do this, a casing can be built over the brick to match the window and give you something that other trim features can be added to. This can also be done with other materials that are used to finish exteriors, such as siding or stucco.
3. Add Awnings, Coverings Or Architectural Details Over Windows
Awnings can be another improvement that you may want to consider for your windows. This can include other features for your windows, such as arbors or keystones over the windows. Giving details to the top of windows can be a good solution to add focal points to the design of your home and interesting, eye-catching features. They can also be practical, by providing shade to help reduce heat gain and keep your home cool. For larger features, you may also want to consider using wider trim that will match the windows better.
These are some of the options you may want to consider to give your home a new look with new trim when you add replacement windows. There are many options when you replace your windows, so you may want to talk with a professional company like Allstate Gutter & Siding about some of these ideas and the best options for your home.
