Rounding out the protective elements of your home exterior, Only Eavestroughs provides professional window and door capping. If we notice issues during an inspection with other elements of your home, we can include recommendations for this additional service in our estimate.
Window & Door Capping
Custom window capping, also known as cladding, is the application of aluminum wrap trim or vinyl shields to cover the wooden frames around your windows and skylights. Door capping is the same concept for framing around entry and garage doors.
We can coordinate window and door capping with your existing trim or replace damaged sections. Door and window frame finishing provides a beautiful facelift for your home and additional protective benefits at a fraction of the cost of replacing existing windows and doors.
Types of Capping
Capping comes in a variety of materials. When deciding which works best for you home, consider not only appearance but the durability and insulation factor.
Extruded aluminum capping provides strength and durability. It holds its visual appeal with special coatings to prevent fading and chalking. But alminum doesn’t offer the best insulation.
If energy efficiency is your goal, vinyl cladding offers excellent insulation. You can easily maintain its surface but be careful not to exchange price for quality to reduce the change of chalking or warping.
