“There are some ‘no sweat’ ways that remodelers, builders and homeowners can add instant curb appeal to a home by using synthetic millwork pieces,” says Randy Miller, director of sales for Nu-Wood, a Jasper Plastics Company. “First, if a home has ugly porch posts, hide them with a PVC column wrap. The two-piece design can be installed over a structural post in less than an hour.”
“Second, make a front entry door ‘pop’ by surrounding it on both sides with decorative pilasters and topping it off with a pediment. Select from simple peaked pediments or more ornate acorn or rams head pediments.
“Finally, don’t ignore windows. Curb appeal can be greatly enhanced on a home by adding a header directly over a window. At Nu-Wood we offer straight headers, arched headers and even arch surrounds to accent a home’s style.”
