Trim work, means more than just your basic "Base and Shoe" around the floor.  It could include cabinets, built in shelving, installing new doors, crafting a new basement bar, or trimming out a dining room with crown moulding and chair rail.  The beauty of fine carpentry is evident when you view a custom built wainscoat wall, or a fun little play nook built-in under the basement stairs.  Your home will transform to the unique and elegant place of your dreams.  Wrap yourself in the beauty offered by PHI3 Construction.

Home 'Trim work' refers to the finishing touches and decorative elements applied to the interior or exterior of a building. It includes moldings, baseboards, crown moldings, window and door casings, wainscoting, and other decorative details. The purpose of trim work is to enhance the aesthetics of a home and to cover gaps or transitions between different building materials. It can also provide functionality, such as protecting walls from scuffs and dings, or concealing electrical or plumbing lines.
