Your home is one the largest investments you will ever make. As such, it is vital to ensure that it is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

These finishing touches can be applied to both the interior and exterior of the home. Known as finished carpentry, these touches not only make the house look better, but also make it more valuable.
Exterior finished carpentry includes door and window casings. In general, these casing have functional purpose of holding in window and doors and sealing cracks and crevices. Sealing the windows and doors with casings has the added benefit of conserving energy by keeping the hot and cold on the outside from affected temperature on the inside. But just because they have a functional use, doesn’t mean that there can’t be flair and style with them. Casings can be customized to fit the size and style of the rest of the home.
Interior finishing includes a wide variety of items that can be applied to the inside of a home. Basic trim styles include baseboards, but can be other interior designs such as columns and mantels. Moldings are another type of interior trim and can be applied to corners, doorways, or anywhere that has an edge. Trim and moldings add a more sophisticated feel to a home. These trimmings can be plain or ornate.
