Bathroom window trim
 
My bathroom window in my shower has wood molding bordering the window. I bought composite wood molding what would the best way to install these? Will composite split if using a finishing nail?

Any window in a shower is a bad idea, there will be wall leakage at some point.
Composit can mean anything. What you should have bought is PVC, is this what you meant?

Yes. And...I'm not sure what you mean by composite...if you mean MDF (dense particle board) that will fall apart from the moisture.

Yep... and its the only thing that should be used in a shower.
Finish nails will not split it. Just caulk the holes after nailing... You'll also want to caulk ALL seams and miters to mitigate leakage.

"exterior use" finish nails would be ideal... Those are sold at HD as well.:thumbup:
