J channel around door


hi all , just built my 1st shed , have installed the roof,shingles and soffitts , also hung my door and am soon ready to get started on teh vinyl siding the doo i hun is just the door itself with the frame around it , there is no brick mold and i have a small gap from where the shims go .

i was thinking about useing j-channel to cover my gap then run my vinyl siding into it all around there door , would this be ok ?

if not i can make my own brick mould out of plywood and my router and paint it , however i would rather not have to have an area to paint on an all vinyl shed.


i could purchas vinyl brick mould but it's verry pricy here and my door is 7 foot so cost here would be about $60 , trying to make it look nice without spending alot more on it.

J channel around door


Congrats on your new shed. Hope you had fun with it. Installing the sheetmetal J channel as a termination strip for your siding will work just fine. Bring your paper over the metal and the remaining gap between the J channel and the door jamb should be caulked all around. If the gap is still wide, you might need a backer rod and then caulk.
Hope this helped.
Have a great weekend.

The J channel could take abuse right next to the door.
Did this door and jamb have a nail fin? Or is a home made door and/or jamb?

The do make PVC brickmould, no painting.

Hey, I used to do insurance claims in WPG, also worked in a cabinet shop there, grew up about 2 hrs west of it.

This is probably one of those places that it is worth spending the $60. But I understand.
