 Wrapping Replacement Windows

Author: monkfish (---.cmbrmaor.dynamic.covad.net)

Hi,

My home is vinyl sided and I'm replacing the windows with vinyl replacements.

Can anyone shed some light on how I wrap the windows.

The outside sill is already wrapped in vinyl, but once I remove the storm window casings it will be wood underneath. I assume I've got to wrap this to protect it and have the outside window area look uniform with the rest of the house.

Questions:

Should I use aluminum or vinyl?

How exactly do I fasten the wrap to the inside/outside of the window?

Hopefully someone out there has experience with wrapping windows and can guide me through this.

Thanks!
