window trim

  1. Windows and Doors
    Hi, I am replacing the top part of the exterior wind trim due to rot and woodpecker damage. I have had contractors do some work in the past and they used pvc trim molding. So I picked up some pvc drip cap and brick molding that is similar to the molding currently in place. When I took these...
  2. Carpentry
    We hired a contractor in our area who was excellent in most difficult trim areas, but I think he misinterpreted what we wanted when we said "Picture frame" our windows with trim (since we have very long sills, and therefore did not do a sill extension) and ended up installing all of our window...

    Hello All! I have another question, which I hope someone might be able to answer for me. I am trimming out my windows, and getting to the point where I am installing the cove moulding around the inside of my window trim (as a nice transition from the inside of the jamb to the window). Every...

    I have two-inch to three-inch thick window trim/siding ( I think made of stucco) surrounding all my windows and it's preventing me from attaching Hurricane shutters like plywood or polycarbonate flush against the wall. How can I attach those type of shutters around or on the trim so that...

    My next door neighbor has essentially the same 1946 bungalow I do and they just had their old rotting exterior wood trim replaced with 2x4 stucco trim. I'm thinking of doing the same, since the wood is rotting away. However, I won't be paying a contract $5,000 to do for me as my neighbor did...

    I'm replacing the vinyl siding on my house with wood siding (clapboard), but my windows are vinyl flange windows with a channel for the vinyl siding to fit under. I want to trim out the windows with 1-by and butt the wood siding up to the trim. I taped adhesive weather-proofing flashing around...

    I'm about to get bids for replacing my old double-hung windows, circa 1954 (I'm amazed they lasted this long) with top quality vinyl replacement windows to be installed from the inside. The house is also vinyl sided. The storm windows will have to come off which will expose the stops which are...

    Hi, First time posting here. I'm wondering if anyone could give me your experience with not sloping/angled window sill. I hired a contractor for some reno work for our house and he has his subs repairing dry rot around several of our windows. I took a break from work to check out the...
  11. Project Showcase
    Been living in a low and lean triplex for the last 6+ years and the landlords let me do what I want to my apartment. During the last couple years, I also did some outside projects, beginning with an arbor. The arbor turned into some new fence in front of my apartment and the landlords liked it...

    I am building a custom cabinet (wine rack/liquor cabinet) inside of a breakfast bar as part of our whole kitchen renovation. I (wife and I) am doing the entire project except the granite installation. We already completed the demolition including removing two partition walls, patching the...
  13. Building & Construction
    I am wondering if anyone can make suggestions about how to find the source of a leak coming from the top of a slider style window into my house. It only happens when it is very windy and raining hard. It is a new development that seems to have started after I had the brick moldings replaced...
