Our Meticulous Approach to Trim Repair in Wheaton, IL

Trim is found throughout your home. From window casings and door trim to crown molding and baseboards, you may not stop to realize how important this feature is until it starts to show signs of damage. Trim is often thought of solely as a design element, and while this is true for crown molding, other types of trim, such as base trim board and exterior trim, have more important purposes. Wherever your trim is located in the interior or exterior of your home, it's susceptible to damage from the natural settling of your home, daily wear and tear, insect damage, wood rot, water damage, and even foundation damage. Neglecting to maintain your trim can also lead to damage, especially in the case of exterior features. With all of this in mind, the need is clear for prompt trim repair in Wheaton, IL. So, how can we help?

If it's been a while since your last home inspection and you're unsure of all of the sites you need trim repair, we recommend booking an inspection. Trim should be replaced every 10 years or so, depending on its material and location, and an inspection from a professional handyman will ensure you stay on top of any maintenance or repairs that are required. This is particularly true for any exterior trims, including window and door frames, fascia boards, etc. Failure to do so can mean that mold (caused by water exposure) continues to spread, wood rot works its way across your wooden surfaces, and your home is left vulnerable to water damage.

Here's a look at how our experts will address your home during a trim repair in Wheaton, IL:


Whether or not you are always aware of the need for trim repair, it's a smart idea to call for a professional inspection. When you do, you'll point out the areas of your trim damage (if you know them) or let us check over the interior and exterior of your home for signs of damage. Once we've completed our inspection, we'll inform you of the condition of your trim and what types of maintenance or repairs need to be completed. 

Our team is nothing if not thorough, and we make sure no detail is missed. At the end of the day, we aim for complete customer satisfaction, and that means ensuring you feel confident in both the quality of the service you receive and the condition of your home once your service is complete.

Trim Repair

The method of trim repair we implement varies depending on the type of damage your trim has sustained. For example, wood rot and cracks are treated differently, and in some cases, sanding and staining are all that is required to get your trim in like-new condition. Some of the most common issues we see affecting trim include:

  • Wood rot: This affects wooden trim only. Wood rot is a fungus that grows when wood becomes wet and doesn't dry quickly. Similar to mold, it will continue to spread unless dealt with promptly. Unlike mold, it shows itself in the form of discolored, crumbly or stringy sections. To eradicate this pesky villain, we'll need to cut out the affected section and replace it with a brand-new piece of wood.
  • Cracks: Cracks can occur from the natural settling of your home, foundation damage, wood drying, and temperature fluctuations. While cracks can be considered minor damage, they can also be a signal sign of foundation damage, so it's always a good idea to call an expert for a professional opinion. To repair a crack, we can fill the gap with epoxy before smoothing over the top of the surface to ensure it is level.
  • Warping: The result of moisture absorption, warping or swelling causes wooden trim to pop off the side of your home's exterior or give baseboards and door trim a wobbly look. Warped door trim may also mean your doors can no longer close easily, and in minor cases, a thorough sanding process is all that's required to restore its proper function.

Finishing Touches

Once the repair method has been implemented, we'll perform the finishing touches. This could mean sanding, staining, or painting, depending on your desired finish. After doing our final inspections, we'll clean up any mess we made during the repair and answer any final questions you have before heading out the door.

What are the Signs I Need Trim Repair in Wheaton, IL?

Inspecting your trim annually can ensure you stay on top of issues. Be on the lookout for:

  • Crumbly, discolored sections
  • Cracks
  • Warping or swelling
  • Mold or musty odors
  • Protruding nails or screws
  • Fading stain or peeling paint

Protecting your trim from UV damage, water, and wear and tear is equally as important as seeking prompt repairs. Cosmetic issues such as peeling paint and worn-down stain can leave your trim vulnerable and result in the need for premature replacement.
