Louver trim and accessories offer a decorative accent to your louvers. Trim can be found on any shape of louver, while keystones are typically added to semi-round, oval, and round louvers. Adding trim and accessories to your louvers give them a customized style.
Function and decoration
Louvers were originally used only for their functions. They allow light, air, and sound to pass through while affording some protection against rain, wind, and onlookers. Today they are used functionally and decoratively. Vent louvers now include screens to block out insects, and are often used in attics or other spaces in need of ventilation. Often, louvers are placed in upper areas of homes such as attics and gables only for decoration.
Louvers to enhance your home exterior
Whether you are using an architectural louver on your home exterior for its ventilation or decorative purposes, its style should compliment your home. Once you have decided on a shape of louver that will fit appropriately on your home exterior, you should consider if trim and accessories for the louver are right for you. Trim can help a louver blend in with the home, and accessories such as keystones can give a rounded louver a classic look and make it really make it stand out. Urethane louvers, trim and accessories are inexpensive and resistant to water and sun damage. The durability of a urethane louver will let you enjoy it for many years without worrying about any maintenance issues, which can be especially valuable for louvers that are in hard to reach spaces of a home like gable louvers or cupolas.
