Wood Trim Fabrication – A PW Profiles Alternative to Wood Trim

Wood trim has long been a favored choice for both residential and commercial properties, admired for its natural aesthetic and traditional appeal. However, wood, while a classic, comes with its own set of challenges including susceptibility to weathering, rot, pests, and the need for regular maintenance and repainting.

Patterson Whittaker Architectural Profiles alternative – Cement-Coated Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) trim. This innovative material not only mimics the look and texture of traditional wood but also enhances the properties where natural wood falls short. If you were looking for custom wood trim and want to learn why cement coated architectural foam is a better alternative, please contact PW Profiles, today.

Why Choose Cement-Coated EPS Over Wood Trim?

While wood may be a classic, it also has many drawbacks. Wood trim is incredibly heavy and difficult to install, often requiring multiple tools, people, and manual reinforcement. It wears down very quickly. It requires a lot of upkeep. It can also be very expensive, both for the material itself and for the labor cost.

Our cement coated EPS can provide the same benefits of wood trim, and can be designed to look and act like wood trim, but address these drawbacks. It offers:

  • Enhanced Durability – Unlike wood, which can deteriorate over time due to exposure to moisture and insects, cement-coated EPS is highly durable. The cement coating provides a protective barrier that resists rot, decay, and insect damage, ensuring a longer lifespan with less maintenance.
  • Superior Weather Resistance – Wood is vulnerable to the elements, often warping, swelling, or contracting in response to changes in weather. Cement-coated EPS is engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions without losing its integrity or appearance. This makes it an ideal choice for exterior applications.
  • Cost-Effective – The installation and maintenance costs associated with wood can be significant. Cement-coated EPS is not only easier and quicker to install due to its lightweight nature but also reduces long-term maintenance costs, making it a more cost-effective option over time.
  • Aesthetic Flexibility – Cement-coated EPS can be crafted to mimic the look and feel of real wood, providing the aesthetic appeal of wood without its drawbacks. It can be customized in a variety of shapes and textures to match any architectural style, from classic to contemporary.
  • Eco-Friendly – Wood trim production often involves the cutting down of trees, which has an environmental impact. Cement-coated EPS uses sustainable materials and processes, offering an environmentally friendly alternative without sacrificing the beauty of natural wood.
  • Easy Installation – The lightweight nature of EPS combined with the rigidity of the cement coating makes installation easier and faster than traditional wood. This not only speeds up construction projects but also reduces labor costs.

Those that traditional use wood trim, or trim of any other material, find that our cement coated EPS can successfully replace essentially all of them, and do so at a lower total cost and with superior results.
