Hey all! My husband and I are fairly handy DIYers. We recently replaced eight very old single hung wood windows with double hung vinyl ones in our 1890s farm house. We also replaced all three doors and figured while we were at it, we'd go ahead and redo the siding. (It all kinda snowballed - don't ask)! Ha.
Anyway. All of the window replacement is done, as well as the doors. The house is wrapped. We sided one face of the house that had only a new door, which already had the bullnose (I think that's what it's called) trim already included. Our problem is that we don't know what to do about the window trim. We have J-channel and understand how all that works. We would like a wider trim, however, around the windows as we're going for a Craftsman-ish feel. Without doing the aluminum trim (which I kinda hate and I don't have access to a brake table or tools), how in the heck do we trim out the windows? They're currently fairly flush with the outside of the house and we have taped around them to provide water sealant.
We priced PVC trim, which is ridiculously priced and sticks out really far. Are there any other options that will hold up and don't cost $5 a foot? We have 27 windows and 3 doors to trim around
Thanks so much for any info!!!
