This have happened on some houses I have where the builds are tall, many rooms, many levels and sometimes overlapping roofs. Builds that look like castles etc.
And when I say black it's not like a swatch. Cause when I hover over the trims these black parts don't light up, they stay pure black. Could be a shadow issue.
Update #1: Found a fix and wanted to share this if anyone else also have this problem.
I deleted all rooms in the basement then all pools on the lot. After this I deleted one wall on the bottom floor. This made all the trims go back to normal. I still had one roof trim that was black. So I deleted one wall under that roof and all roof trims were good. After that I slowly undid my actions and the roof trims stayed normal. Now I just have to try on my other houses that have this problem. Hoping it's this easy for every lot.
Update #2: Well scratch that fix. The shadow issue on the trims just resets when you load the save again
