If your house is starting to look a bit dated, it may be time to explore options that enhance its exterior design while also improving durability and weather resistance.
Start by replacing old or worn-out trim and windows. Updated custom trim can add a polished finishing touch to your home’s curb appeal while new windows improve energy efficiency and provide better insulation.
To begin your journey, note details about the style and color of your home’s exterior and take pictures on your phone. The end game here is to deliver a cohesive and visually appealing first impression.
Whether you want to create a traditional, modern, or eclectic design, the options are virtually unlimited. Custom trim, the decorative molding that surrounds the edges of windows and doors, can be made of wood, metal, plastic, or composite.
Own Your Home’s Personality
You can customize shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns and include charming finishing touches such as cornices, rosettes, keystones, or pediments.
We encourage you to be bold, creative, and even whimsical in your selections to add character and charm to your home. But what you don’t see is important too. Custom trim can hide gaps or imperfections between the window or door frame and the wall.
Provia’s custom trim for windows and doors belongs at the top of your shopping list. Made of Fibrex® material, a composite of wood and plastic, Provia’s trim options are not only maintenance-free but also come in a variety of colors and styles to suit any home’s aesthetic.

The Final Custom Trim Touch
Be sure to choose custom trim that matches or complements the architectural style of your home, whether it is colonial, Victorian, craftsman, or contemporary.
If you have a colonial-style home, you might want to choose a simple and elegant trim with a white or cream color. But if you have a Victorian-style home, a more ornate and elaborate trim with a dark or rich color will be a better fit.
Choose custom trim that fits and frames your windows and doors properly, without being too large or too small. It seems like common sense but bad scale is a common pitiful that many homeowners trip over.
It’s Simple Geometry
Are your windows rectangular, arched, or round? If you have arched windows, you might want to choose a curved trim that follows the contour of the frame. If you have round windows, you’re probably better off with a circular trim that creates a focal point.
Next choose custom trim that contrasts or coordinates with the color and pattern of your walls, depending on the effect you want.
If you have a plain and neutral wall color, consider a custom trim that adds some color and interest to the space. If you have a bold and busy wall pattern, you might want to choose a custom trim that blends in and balances the space.
So when selecting custom trim for your home’s exterior, it’s important to consider not only the aesthetic appeal but also the practical benefits.
Custom trim can improve the durability and weather resistance of your windows and doors, protecting them from moisture, insects, and other elements that can cause damage over time.
Provia’s custom trim options are made of Fibrex® material, which is a composite of wood and plastic that offers superior strength, durability, and resistance to weathering. This means that Provia’s custom trim will not rot, warp, or fade over time, ensuring that your home’s exterior looks great for years to come.
