Hail broke J trim, easiest replacement


just got done putting new windows doors and siding on house less than 2 years ago.

Hail took all of north side off and part of west side,broke some glass, holes in corner trim but hardest thing to replace is the J trim around windows BECAUSE I have 2 or 3 layers of metal flashing over edge of it

IF I take that off it all has to be new, PLUS all new holes in window edge pounding new nails in all

Isnt there a way to trim nailing fin off j trim and gluing new on outside of old?????

Same question for outside corner trim?????

just caulk the nail holes. No need to replace the window flanges, these are for ease of installation only.

Post a picture.
No clue why there would be all those layers of coil stock over J moulding.
