"As a designer on HGTV Curb Appeal, it is my job to give a house an
updated, fresh look that gives the house just that curb appeal" says Don
Hirsch. "For this particular show, we gave the house a whole new look
using architectural elements to give the house the substance and detail of
a European manor. StyroTrim accents allowed us to add elements without
heavy construction or expensive labor costs. Adding something as simple as
one of these beautiful details transformed the house into something unique
and special. I was pleased to find these trims to help transform a nice
house into a beautiful home."
Refurbishing the Maryland house was a team effort. Homeowners Tom and
Kim Scurlock and the Curb Appeal crew installed dozens of StyroTrim
quoins angles and accents that form a decorative contrast against a wall to all exterior corners of the house using a common construction
adhesive and special StyroTrim caulking. Viewers of tonight's show can
watch as the house transforms from a simple, traditional house into a
beautiful customized two-story home.
"Like many older colonial homes, ours had a boxy feel,"says Tom. "The StyroTrim
accents have softened the edges, giving the surface more texture. They
have definitely made the house pop."
Kim Scurlock concurs. "We wanted to give our home a European feel, and
the StyroTrim accents offered the perfect touch. The combination of
StyroTrim accents, an iron gate and casement windows really helped us
achieve that old-world look."
Made of highly advanced EPS materials, StyroTrim accents are coated
with special cementitious acrylic making the products more durable, longer
lasting and easier to install than wood.
"StyroTrim's do-it-yourself trims, sills and other accents add
architectural class and value to any home," says Daniel Jurin, founder of
the StyroTrim brand of products. "The home profiled on Curb
Appeal is a wonderful testimonial on how anyone from a homeowner and
apartment building owner to a contractor or builder can easily install our
accents in just a weekend and get wonderful results."
