Outdoor Uses for InstaTrim®: The Flexible Trim Strips
Our customers all know just how well InstaTrim® works in their kitchens and bathrooms. However, these flexible trim strips can also be used outside. Not only is it easier to peel and stick caulk, rather than squeezing caulk out of a tube - it holds up better outdoors because it’s suitable for all temperatures.
InstaTrim® also comes in six colors that have UV stabilizers so they won’t fade. If that isn’t enough to convince you to give it a try, we’re here to tell you that our peel and stick caulk can be painted to match whatever color you desire! It’s the perfect way to finish off all your outdoor spaces.
Keep Bugs Out of Your Home
Ants, along with spiders, are beautiful creatures. Truly. Nature’s little gems. Each one has a purpose in the master plan for the universe. However, I think we can all agree that they have no place inside of our homes.
How can InstaTrim® help homeowners keep the pests outdoors? It fills gaps and cracks around kitchen windows, because ants love creeping into our kitchens. Taking over our pantries, countertops, and garbage.
In order to battle spiders, InstaTrim®can also be used around exterior doors, and basement windows, to fill in gaps. Spiders often find their way into the house through doorways and basement windows.
Fix Drafty Doors and Windows
Let’s be real: we all pay a lot of money to heat, and cool, our homes. The last thing we want to do is pay even more money when all that bought air escapes through drafty windows and doors. When homeowners seal around their windows and doors, it means your heater and air conditioner doesn’t need to work as hard. The less effort they put into heating and cooling the house means a lower energy bill each month.
However, caulking is messy, and difficult to work with. Plus, it discolors over time, so it has to be removed and done again. No one has time for this task over and over. What’s a homeowner to do? You know the answer! Use our peel and stick caulk strips! They’re far less messy and have the added bonus of standing up to the elements as they’re suitable for all temperatures. Another bonus? The PVC is made with UV stabilizers, so they won’t lose their color.
Patios & Decks
Thanks to outdoor heaters and fire pits, more homeowners are hanging out in their backyard spaces more than just the summer season. We’re also hosting more outdoor parties with friends, and family. This means we want to have beautiful patios and decks to enjoy with everyone, instead of thinking about the ugly gap filled with leaves and tree squigglies between the deck and the house.
InstaTrim®is also a great way to fill the stress cuts that are cut into patios. You know the ones that collect dirt, and often end up with weeds growing in them. After spending money to put in a patio, you want it to look clean and finished. You do not want mini gardens growing in the gaps!
Peel and Stick Caulk
Whether you’re looking for an alternative to traditional caulk for your kitchen, or bathroom, or outdoor spaces, you’ve come to the right place. InstaTrim® provides a no-mess solution to filling gaps and cracks around your home quickly and without waiting for anything to dry or cure. Just peel, push into place using our helpful applicator tool, watch it stick in place, and then go tackle your next project (or, relax and show off your work).
