Trimming window with vinyl siding


I agree Windows on Wash! I was getting Mastic siding but he told me he had a better brand called "Crane". Imay have to let him go tomorrow because this isn't going to work! He said he would be out the cost of the materials (I haven't paid anything yet) but this is beyond what I wanted. I not very picky either!

Trimming window with vinyl siding


I really think this is a hack job. If you zoom in on some of the pics, I see screws in the outside corner posts on the chimney, not sure what they did to the window in your second pics without the wood trim. Doesn't have a set of siding snips, look closely at the miter cut in the first pic, snips have little teeth on them. I have installed siding starting with aluminum before vinyl was even around. Installed a lot of vinyl since. Never used screws on coil work.
I wouldn't let these guys work on anything I own.

Trimming window with vinyl siding


Crane and mastic siding are both good so no issues from that perspective, but I'd have to move more firmly into poor installation camp based on the additional pics. No reason for the screws in the cladding when installed over wood, and I can't fathom why there seem to be screws in the corner posts on the chimney as well. Did you remove foam around the windows, or is it super spotty like that from the installer? Do you have any head flashing on the tops of the windows?

HomeSealed I have no clue about the windows. The windows were installed a few years back. We haven't had any issues with them. I'm glad you guys confirmed this for me!

Trimming window with vinyl siding


Why would he have made his own outside corners?
Looks like he installed it with a ball peen hammer.
Not getting why he ripped the siding like that at the bottom.
Notice the oval nail hole in the top of the siding, that's because siding expands and contracts a lot according to the temp. He's got it screwed to the wall so how it has to buckle.
I'm not even seeing any nailing fins on the windows, no door and window tape, no house wrap.
