How Pre-Primed Trim Saves You Time and Money on the Job Site

pre primed trim

As a builder, sider, or contractor, you’re always looking for ways to save both time and money on the job site. One area where you can achieve both is with pre-primed trim. Not only does pre-primed exterior trim save you time during the installation process, but it also saves you money in the long run. Here’s how:

Time-Saving Benefits

Pre-primed exterior trim comes ready to install, which then saves you time on the job site. Unlike traditional wood trim, which requires sanding, priming, and painting before installation, pre-primed exterior trim is already primed and ready for paint. This means that you can install it immediately, without any additional preparation work.

Additionally, pre-primed exterior trim is often made with high-quality materials and precision cuts, which ensures a perfect fit and reduces the amount of time spent on trimming and cutting on-site. This can save you even more time, allowing you to move on to other aspects of the project faster.

If you’re installing Belco XT® Trim, you’ll feel rest assured that you’re investing in a beautiful product homeowners will love for years to come. Additionally, you’ll feel confident that your trim products are made to last and are able to endure climate conditions. Plus, Belco XT® Trim is lightweight and only requires one installer, allowing your team to complete the project even more efficiently.

Cost-Saving Benefits

In addition to saving time, pre-primed exterior trim can also save you money. The cost of traditional wood trim includes the cost of the raw materials, as well as the cost of priming, painting, and labor. With pre-primed exterior trim, the cost is reduced since it comes already primed and ready to paint. This eliminates the need for additional labor and materials, which can save you money.

Moreover, pre-primed exterior trim is often made with materials that are resistant to warping, cracking, and rotting, which means that it can last longer than traditional wood trim. Unlike other SPF products, Belco XT® Trim is first preservative treated and then primed with a generous coating of primer. Each piece of trim must then meet the standards of our grader before moving through the rest of the process. This means you’ll have less cull and more usable trim on the jobsite. Additionally, you won’t have to replace it for 20 years, saving you money in the long run.

Other Benefits

Pre-primed exterior trim also offers other benefits that can make your job easier. For example, it can be easily cleaned, which means that it will look new for longer. Additionally, pre-primed exterior trim is available in a variety of styles and finishes, which means that you can choose the perfect trim for your project without having to worry about priming and painting it yourself.

Conclusion

In conclusion, pre-primed exterior trim is a great option for contractors and builders who want to save time and money on the job site. By eliminating the need for additional preparation work, pre-primed exterior trim can help you complete your project faster, which means that you can move on to other projects sooner. Additionally, pre-primed exterior trim is often made with high-quality materials and precision cuts, which ensures a perfect fit and reduces the amount of time spent on trimming and cutting on-site. Finally, pre-primed exterior trim can save you money in the long run since it is resistant to warping, cracking, and rotting, and doesn’t require additional labor and materials. So, consider pre-primed exterior trim for your next project and see how it can save you time and money.
