Question

Has anyone heard of StyroTrim?


I want to remodel my house and put trim on the exterior around the windows and stuff. I recently heard about a product called StyroTrim so I briefly looked at their website (www.styrotrim.com) and I really like the product! HOwever, I'm not exactly a carpenter so I would like some other people's opinions about it. Has anyone used StyroTrim or know someone that has it on their house? Can I install it on a brick house or does it only work with stucco?

Did a 30 second read of the product's website.

It seams plausible. This is a material for southern regions (mild weather areas). As can be seen, we work in New England.

The premise 'reads' perfectly sound. The product is attached with adhesives, so there is no danger of moisture seapage that you would normally be concerned with if the product were bolted, nailed, or screwed in....

I would contact the manufacterer about attaching to brick tho....
(I have had to contact manufacturers on a regular basis regarding the exact stats/characteristics, applications, ratings, etc... of their products...to hear it from the horse's mouth and to find something in 'writing' or documented research/code approval)...

This is what I ascertain from their website;

The installation of their products revolve around using the proper adhesives and creating a weather-tight seal between the existing home's exterior components (siding material).... and the company's product...
