Double hung window trim

We always prefer to install pre-primed stock (when able to)and then do the final paint work after installation.

Double hung window trim


Hey guys I'm back, and I have one question. Is poplar that expensive or should I look elsewhere? I went to this home center, not HD or Lowes I beleive they don't sell it, and a 1 X 6X 6' was 10.79, compare to a 1 X 6X6' pine $4.80. Just asking, thanks.

Not too expensive. Just realize the time saved in prep. work and finished product is worth the price difference from pine...Keep checking prices....

Hey Atlantic, on that beautiful work you did triming the window, did you nail the rossettes, or used adhesive and nails? Thanks for all your help. I love this forum, getting help from people like you, make me feel great

Hey Atlantic West, on the window trim. The one with the fluted casing and rossette blocks, did you use any adhesive for the blocks and trim like caulk or liquid nail before nailing them? or did you just nail them? Thanks alot.

Oh, sorry I missed your first inquiry. On those pics, I did not. This was a quick install with a HO on a Time and Materials job ... back in 2002.

Can or should you use them....yes.

On higher-end finish trim installs, wood glue and adhesives are used, as needed, everywhere...

Here's a photo of the window, I said to myself whenever I get a chance I would post the picture. Haven't painted or filled in the nail holes yet!
