A building consists of prominent features such as walls, floors, doors and windows. While these elements are essential to make any structure habitable, they work best when you complement them with aesthetic finishes. For example, doorways and windows look far better when they have a stylish casing around them. Here at Compass Hardwoods, we specialize in architectural millwork and custom moldings. Our team of skilled craftspeople is ready to enhance the appearance of your doorways and windows.
What Is Interior Casing for Homes?
Casing is the frame around doors and windows. You may already be familiar with molding, which is a more decorative form of casing trim. This framing contains fine details to give any home a polished appearance. Door casings consist of three major components — a short piece at the top, known as the head, and two longer pieces for each side of the door frame.
Benefits of Casing Trims
Including door and window casings in your construction project can offer several aesthetic and functional benefits, including:
Provide a Stylish Look
Door casing can transform the impression of any residential and commercial building. These frames hide the joints between the wall and the door and help doorways stand out. You can choose from modern or classic casing molding that offers the decorative value you want.
Door and window casings offer better insulation, covering gaps and holes to prevent drafts and maintain the indoor temperature. Homes with better insulation also enjoy lower utility bills, as their HVAC systems don’t have to work as hard.
Increase Property Value
Casing also increases property value since it improves the overall appearance of a building’s interior. You can’t go wrong with a stylish casing, especially custom molding.
Casing Application for Windows and Doors
Here at Compass Hardwoods, we offer custom wood casing trims to suit any interior aesthetic.
