Exterior building products should be easy to work with and offer design flexibility, durability, and low maintenance. Cellular polymer trim and moulding provides a finished look, playing a key role in tying together building elements such as eaves, windows, doors, corners, and columns.
These architectural elements increase curb appeal, add visual interest, and protect edges and openings from the elements. Cellular polymer trim and mouldings provide these attributes because they are impervious to moisture and do not need paint for protection.
This course will cover the safety, durability, and performance benefits of cellular polymer trim and moulding, as well as best practices for meeting code and safety standards.
- Describe the emergence and role of exterior polymer trims and mouldings in the residential and commercial marketplace.
- Review the safety, durability, and performance benefits of polymer trim and moulding, including moisture resistance, fire resistance, and sustainability.
- Discuss building codes and safety standards as related to polymer trim and moulding.
- Examine best practices for designing with and installing polymer trim and moulding.
