Hassle-Free Ways to ReinventYour Home’s Wood Surfaces
While many people love thelook of natural wood throughouttheir homes, they don’t enjoy thehassles that come with maintain-ing wood surfaces. To combatthe rotting, decaying and highmaintenance challenges of realwood, many manufacturers haveintroduced new types of fauxwood products.“There are authentic-lookingalternative wood products you’dswear are real wood, but they’renot, and they actually havefeatures that beat many wood products,” says Mark Clement,co-host of the MyFixitUpLifenational home improvementradio show. “Those alternative products mimic the look of wood but they’re made with advancedman-made materials that are eas-ier to maintain and provide yearsof hassle-free enjoyment.”For home exteriors, where products take a beating fromeveryday weather conditions plusextreme storms, Clement recom-mends considering woodgrainurethane and PVC products fromFypon when replacing shutters,louvers, non-structural beams
and trim on a house. He nds
that these woodgrain products re-sist moisture, insect infestations,cracking and splitting. Plus, each piece comes pre-primed, makingit easy to stain or paint.One of the most vulnerableareas of a home is the roof, whichis subjected to everything fromhail storms to intense daily sunexposure. Many homeown-ers love the look of real woodshakes, so Clement advises these people to consider polymer roof-ing tile options.
“Bellaforté Shake roong
tiles from DaVinci Roofscapesare incredibly realistic-lookingcedar wood shakes, that entirelyoutperform real wood shakes,”
says Clement. “They resist re,
insects, hail and severe weather conditions and are backed by a50-year limited warranty. Mostimportantly, these advanced
 polymer roong tiles look exact
-ly like hand-split cedar shakes.They’re available in 49 colors
and ve color blends, which
won’t fade or discolor.”Clement also suggests con-
sidering berglass door options
instead of solid wood front entrydoors. “The technologies avail-able today are amazing,” hesays. “One door manufacturer,Therma-Tru, has an AccuGraintechnology that gives their Clas-
sic-Craft line of berglass entry
doors a completely authenticwoodgrain look.”The company starts by build-
ing a wood door using specic
 pieces of wood that have thecharacteristics they wish toreplicate. They use their owntechnology to enhance thenatural graining depth on the
wood before casting. The nalberglass doors are virtually
indistinguishable from real wooddoors, but won’t split, crack or rotlike real wood.Inside the home, laminatewoodgrain options on windowframes can be selected to matchinterior woodgrain furnishingsto unite the entire home décor.“The window that impressesme the most is the Decorum by
Simonton series of energy ef
-cient vinyl windows,” says Clem-ent. “You can really personalizethese windows for your home because you can select exterior window frame colors, like Pine,Chocolate or Bronze, and thenchoose a unique woodgrain inte-rior on the frames to complementyour decor. They’ve got AntiqueCherry, Contemporary Oak andMaple woodgrains to choosefrom, plus upgraded hardwareoptions in brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, polished brass,dark bronze and antique brass.”
