EasyTrim Reveals aluminum trims

Testimonial #6 - Evercore Exterior says "An EasyTrim Reveals building looks more expensive than it is"

“If we say it, it’s a sales pitch, but if the customer says it it’s true!” That’s why testimonials are so important. As a potential customer, if you are considering EasyTrim Reveals you have every reason to be skeptical about the positive things we have to say about our products and our company. We’re biased, you know that, and that’s entirely fair. A testimonial from an architect, installer or homeowner will be more authentic though because they are sharing the benefits and results they actually experienced and will substantiate the claims we would make ourselves. So, we could tell you why we think EasyTrim Reveals are awesome, but we know our customers will do a better job.

How long has Evercore been in the siding installation business and do you offer additional services?

  • Evercore has been in business in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland for over 5 years. We supply and install all types of siding except stucco. In addition, Evercore as a General Contractor offers renovations for commercial space.

How do you define “quality” in your industry?

  • A quality job is one that meets the high expectations of our clients and ourselves. Sometimes our customer is a commercial building owner, sometimes our customer is a builder that will sell or rent units in a multi-family building to a third party. A quality job for us means satisfying a wide group of stakeholders that have a vested interest in the job we do. Our goal is always to do the job right the very first time, with no deficiencies.

If your customers could only use one word to define you, what would you want that word to be and why?

  • Trustworthy. Every aspect of our business has a trust component built in. How much will this cost? When will you finish? How long is your warranty? Will I like the final result? These are all questions we are regularly asked and require an act of trust when we answer. Quite frankly, without a track record of trust, we wouldn’t be able to function as a business.

What did you initially think of aluminum trims being used with fiber cement?

  • Honestly? I initially thought “what a joke!” I’m being serious. The thing is, I saw it on a brochure with tiny samples the first time I learned of aluminum trims for fiber cement, so it was hard to visualize. The first time I saw it in person was on a McDonald’s and I thought it looked amazing. I immediately understood the potential when I saw it on a full-scale building. Basically, aluminum trims create a contemporary look at an affordable cost to the customer. The value to price ratio is very attractive for the customer.

Did you think the idea would catch fire or die?

  • I thought it would catch fire! Every other building in the Vancouver area seems to have some aluminum trims on them these days. The look has become very very popular.

What were your impressions of EasyTrim Reveals when you first worked with them?

  • The profiles have been well thought out and each profile is part of a greater system. The attention to detail is impressive and you can see that the system was designed as much for the installer as it was for the end user. The two piece profiles make the installation process a lot easier and a lot faster. So do the horizontal profiles and the way they slide into the corners and j trims. The entire system just projects a high level of quality.

What specifically did you find made EasyTrim Reveals easier to install for you?

  • We have used more two piece verticals than two piece corners. With regular aluminum vertical profiles, they are just one piece so you end up fighting to get the panel under the tab. Easytrim’s two piece vertical has a backplate and a top cap so there are no tabs in the way when you install the panel on top of the backplate. You knock the top cap into the backplate to complete the assembly. No pun intended, but it’s really easy!

As an installer, what are the best aspects of installing with EasyTrim Reveals?

  • Easytrim provides a distinct, contemporary look to a building that’s also cost effective. An Easytrim building looks a lot more expensive than it is.

Rocco T – Architect | Homeowner

This is a modern house design very much dictated by the confines of my tight budget.  Although a flat rectilinear roof and metal panels have become conventional elements of modern house design, my budget quite simply restricted me from their use. I was forced to seek out building materials that were projected a modern aesthetic but were also budget friendly. EasyTrim Reveals fulfilled all of my requirements and then some.

The gray rectilinear forms of the house interplay with the copper colored angular masses, all while being held together below a series of overlapping and slipping sloped roof planes. I alternated the exposures of the gray cement board lap siding and edged all outside corners and finish transitions in clean and minimal, clear anodized aluminum EasyTrim. Their use accentuated the simple forms, helping to crisply outline their unique surface rhythm, color and texture.

We are extremely happy with the results and love our new place. We have been living here since the end of December 2014. Since we are on the town’s main street leading to the town center, the house gets a plenty of exposure. I cannot tell you how many people have stopped in the street to complimented us or how many letters and notes have been left in our mailbox from people expressing how much they loved the house and asking if we can share info on who was involved in the design and construction. For many of our home’s admirers, the defining element that really makes the home “pop” are the modern “silver” trims. The extent to which EasyTrim Reveals trims deliver a luxurious look without a premium price, can’t be exaggerated.

How long has Heldman Exteriors been in the siding installation business and do you offer additional services?

Heldman Exteriors has been installing siding since 1979. We were originally called Heldman Siding but changed names to Heldman Exteriors in 2003 to better reflect our business model. We install all types of sidings, roofing, windows and gutters.

Please check out our website: http://www.heldmanexteriors.com/ or call me (Nick) at 317-257-1169.

 

How do you define “quality” in the exteriors business?

We define quality as “would I want this installed on my house”. We are very selective of the products we bring to our clients. We have chosen the best products out of each category and that is what we install on our client’s properties. We pride ourselves on the one and done approach. Once we install the product, we do not want to have any callbacks until it is time to do another project.

 

If your customers could only use one word to define you, what would you want that word to be and why?

Family. We are a family owned and operated business. Our business approach is that we take care of our customers like they are family. We have some clients that we have taken care of 3 generations and serviced multiple houses per generation. Our name is on the company so we take pride in what we do.

 

What did you initially think of aluminum trims being used with fiber cement siding?

I heard about contractors making their own aluminum trims back in 2012 on the west coast. Not a lot of architects were using it at first but soon we began to see more of it. At first, the products were not the easiest to install but the look was what I really liked. I knew as soon as the price came down and the bugs were worked out it would quickly take that spot that EFIS was taking up. 

 

What were your impressions of EasyTrim Reveals when you first worked with them?

EasyTrim has always been a pretty easy product to work with. The installers like the 2 piece systems which really speed things up. EasyTrim also has a wide arrange of products so whatever you run into, there usually is a solution in their catalog. 

 

As a siding contractor, what are the best aspects of installing with EasyTrim Reveals?

What we like about EasyTrim is they constantly strive to make a better product. This market is constantly changing, every project is more complicated than the last one, and EasyTrim has been up to the task. Whether its offering colors or the hinged corners, Easy Trim has listened to its installers and has used that feedback to improve on its products.

 

What was your favorite EasyTrim Reveals project once it was completed?

Every project is different so it is hard to pick a favorite. Pulliam Square was one of the first “large” projects we installed EasyTrim on so that will always be special.

Karlie M – Designer | Homeowner

Our home is designed with a modern industry aesthetic.  There are three materials that break up the exterior of the house: silver corrugated galvalume siding, faux painted concrete monoliths and Hardie board panel.  The Hardie panels are accented with EasyTrim Reveals aluminum trims. The EasyTrim Reveals were painted to match the Hardie fiber cement panel to create a subtle uniform wall of color and make ease of maintenance when the time comes to repaint. There is a tower-like section on the second floor where I chose clear anodized (silver) outside corners. I chose this finish type because it best complimented the silver galvalume siding and silver window frames. Mixing color matched and silver EasyTrim Reveals helped deliver the architectural elements this modern home required.

Visitors to our home are always interested in the choices we made and ask many questions, which we are delighted to answer. We didn’t use a lot of EasyTrim, but their overall impact can’t be understated or overlooked.


Testimonial #2 - The Compleo Group | 4mm ACM QuickPanel System by EasyTrim Reveals

By Shaun Langhorne

 

I have seen a lot of products come and go in my 29 years in the construction industry and have not seen one that has me as excited as the latest from EasyTrim Reveals: The 4MM ACM QuickPanel System.

 

I think that this product is going to turn the traditional Rout and Return industry upside down!

 

 

 

 

EasyTrim Reveals is very excited about their new 4MM ACM QuickPanel System and can’t wait to introduce it to the building industry. The look of the EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System is comparable to a traditional Rout and Return system, but the installation process is extremely different. The EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System is field modified with a traditional circular saw and installed by the siding contractor. In fact, all of the materials provided with the EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System can be modified in the field and installed immediately eliminating the lost time to shop fabrication common to traditional Rout and Return systems. The EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System provides a traditional Rout and Return look at a fraction of the cost. The wind rating for the EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System makes this a perfect exterior siding product for all construction projects, including gulf coast construction. The panels are able to withstand over 180 MPH without caulking and over 200 MPH with caulking and able to be installed on projects up to 26 stories!!! The panels come in a variety of prefinished colors, including specialty patterns, like wood grain and granite. All of the bright vibrant colors carry a 10-year warranty, whereas the standard normal range colors have a 20-30 year warranty. EasyTrim Reveals has partnered with Alucoil, Alpolic and Reynobond for the 4MM ACM panels and carry their manufacturer warranties.

I am very excited and intrigued with the prefinished material that allows the GC to eliminate the entire exterior caulking and exterior painting task from the project schedule, as the siding contractor is able to complete all of the caulking and install the prefinished Easy Trim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System in one pass…that is huge my friends! But the EasyTrim Reveals team didn’t stop there, they are now offering full take off and building layout services in PDF and CAD formats.

With the latest multi-family project trend of going higher and wider, interior courtyards, wraps and the limited amount of space that is provided for laydown, the tighter and tighter boundaries that we face with urban development sites, the elimination of lifts and the additional contractors needed for the exterior caulking and painting task is well worth the slight premium cost of the prefinished EasyTrim 4MM ACM QuickPanel System compared to fiber cement.

Jordana Green and Marc Grossfield – Homeowners

“We remodeled a very neglected 2 bedroom rambler into a two story modern home this past year.  We live in Minnesota so durability is non-negotiable. Of course we also wanted sleek, no maintenance and an environmentally friendly product. After the research, EasyTrim Reveals was the obvious choice. We could paint it any color to match or contrast the fiber cement, cut it to any size and it would withstand many MN winters. Our builders wanted to learn how to use it as they are seeing it on so many commercial properties. Turns out this took one training session and the exterior went up in 2 days, it was super easy. We have not had one issue since its installation. It looks as good as the day it went on. We are thrilled with our new home. Thank you!!!”

“We were excited to design this project inside and out. Marc and Jordana wanted a very modern look for their home. After deciding to use fiber cement as the exterior material, aluminum EasyTrim Reveals was a natural fit. It’s virtually maintenance-free, can be painted, and used as an accent or blend in. The homeowners live in Minnesota so we were glad to hear EasyTrim Reveals is used on many commercial and multi-family buildings in Canada, giving us confidence it would withstand many Minnesota winters. The product could also be cut to any size, so we were free to design large and small features on the house.”

“EasyTrim Reveals gives the Grossfield house a modern look with a shadow of edging. It’s a very sophisticated and cool result. We are thrilled with the final product and feel confident using it again on future projects as we know more clients will be asking for this look.”

Pat Simco / Simco Construction – Siding Installer

“The best thing about EasyTrim from an installers point is that it’s very forgiving. The cover pieces allow you to have a straight finished look no matter what the cut looked like. I would use it again and recommend it over other products for that reason alone. It gives every job a top of the line modern professional finish.”
