With today’s focus on green materials, detailing needs to meet both an architectural design aesthetic and sustainability requirements. Specifying trim for use with fiber cement siding is one instance where a knowledge of detailing can contribute to both. Available in a number of configurations, extruded aluminum trim can add architectural distinction to both the interiors and exteriors of a wide range of building types.
This course will identify the sustainability features of extruded aluminum architectural trim, as well as its benefits, design options and moisture management considerations.
