Our Experienced Colorado Springs Trim Repair Services
When you call our team for a Colorado Springs trim repair project, the first thing we'll do is evaluate the damage and come up with a repair solution to get it fixed up. We'll then explain our recommendations clearly and give you an upfront cost so you can make an informed decision about the next steps.
The strategy we decide on for your particular Colorado Springs trim repair will, of course, depend on the nature of the problem. Some of the most common trim repair solutions we provide for Colorado Springs homes are:
Refinish Wooden Components
When solid wood trim components suffer damage such as dents or scratches, often the best Colorado Springs trim repair solution is to simply sand off the damage and refinish the wood to make it look just as beautiful as the day it was installed.
Conceal Surface Issues
Sometimes the right way to handle trim repair is simply to hide the damage under a coat of paint. If your interior elements have some minor surface problems like scuffs or discolored patches, painting over them solves that problem without needing to invest too much time in a repair.
Fill Gaps, Dents Holes, and Cracks
Gaps and other similar damage look bad, but they can also cause heat transfer issues that make your house less energy efficient. We'll take care of that by filling in the gap with silicone caulk or epoxy putty that blocks heat transfer and moisture incursion, then covering it with a coat of paint.

Frequently Asked Colorado Springs Trim Repair Questions
Which Components of a House Qualify as "Trim"?
There are actually a surprising number of trim elements in a typical home, and they fall into two broad categories: interior and exterior. Both categories are made to last, but they aren't impervious to damage and will eventually need Colorado Springs trim repair services.
Exterior trim includes parts such as casings around windows and doors, frieze boards, drip caps that sit above window and door frames, and other components that both make the house look finished and also protect against water damage, pest infestations, heat transfer, and other potential issues. Some styles of houses have more elaborate elements, such as spindles, corbels, scalloped gables, and intricate window shutters. People will sometimes include soffits, fascia boards and even siding as parts of a house's exterior components.
Interior trim includes elements such as window sills, door casings, baseboards, crown molding, wainscoting, chair rails, and lots more. You could make the argument that elements such as fireplace mantels and built-in window seats and fireplace mantels are also part of a house's interior components.
What Are the Warning Signs That Indicate Colorado Springs Trim Repair is Necessary?
When it comes to exterior trim repair, Colorado Springs homeowners often find that the biggest problem they have to deal with is wood rot. Timber only rots when it's exposed to high moisture levels, so it makes sense that wood components that are outside and exposed to the elements would be more susceptible to rotting. Wood rot causes timber to soften and crumble apart, which looks unattractive—but the bigger problems are that it can allow for heat transfer to occur and provide an opportunity for insect infestations.
Wood rot eats away at certain parts of the wood fiber (lignin or cellulose, depending on the type of wood rot). Since parts of the timber are actually gone, there's no real way to restore rot-damaged wood to its former condition. Replacing the affected timber is usually the best Colorado Springs trim repair solution, but it may also be possible to fill in missing areas with epoxy and paint over it to conceal the repair. Some of the other signs that indicate you need Colorado Springs trim repair are:
- Flaking or peeling paint
- Faded colors
- Dents, cracks, scuffs, or holes
- Missing segments
- Pest infestations
- Wildlife damage
- Moisture stains
- Mildew or mold growth
- Bulging or cupping
- Air drafts
