Window casings around window with integrated J channel?


Hi All,

Can a window that has an integral J channel have casings built around it?

YES. I accidentally ordered a window last spring with a J-channel return. Having brick mould on my other windows and since I wasn't planning on residing my house anytime soon, I added the brick mould. It looks great. Just make sure you caulk any seams, so water does not penetrate.

Hi 97. I never said that I was making this brick. This is going to be vinyl siding.

I am asking about the window trim not the siding.

Okay, after reading the post below yours about brick mold, I thought that was direction you were going. My mistake.

So, you want to trim around the window with casing and still be able to install the siding, right? This is beyond my skills or knowledge. I wish I had some helpful advice.

You could rabbet one side of the trim to fit into the j-channel and rabbet the other side for vinyl siding to fit in. Kind of like a J-channel extension. What brand windows do you have? Could you post a closer picture of the j-channel?
Nice job on the house wrap and window flashing.

Are you trying to match up casing that is on the rest of the house?

If so, could you post a photo of the other windows that have the casing that you would like installed on these newer windows?

It's nice to see they got the Tyvek right.

Yes you can add whatever trim you like. Just make sure that on the top of the window you put drip cap under as well as above any trim you use and caulk the entire perimeter of the window.

Check out the thread I started in the Building and Construction forum called "Hardiplank and New windows". There are some really good photos of examples of just what you are asking about here.I did mine this way.
