Window trim is one of those details you don't often think about when hiring a contractor, but it can be one of the most important aesthetic exterior elements to a professional looking job for either vinyl siding or window replacement. The exterior window trim is wood on the vast majority of new England homes. Unfortunately, wood window trim must be maintained and painted continuously. Covering the exterior window trim with custom white aluminum trim coverage can be a great long term and attractive solution.

How will my window trim look? Often the hesitance to cover the window trim is due to homeowners who are afraid of how it will look, or have seen an inferior window trim coverage job. A true professional window trim job should look beautiful, be properly sealed from the elements and last for decades to come. The window trim corners should be mitered, or cut at a 45 degree angle. Any rotted wood window trim should be replaced prior to covering. The base of the window trim, the sill should be wrapped tightly and sealed, and a pressure bend should be applied to the long runs of the window trim to give added strength.
