In construction, door and window moldings (window and door cladding, window and door wrapping) refers to the application of aluminum or vinyl sheeting cut and formed with a brake to fit over the exterior, wood trim of a building. The aluminum is intended to make aging trim with peeling paint look better, reduce future paint maintenance, and provide a weather-proof layer to control the infiltration of water.
Nothing will make your home feel more energetic and comfortable on a beautiful day than a natural breeze. The windows and doors molding give you a chance to make your house show a kind of loyal decoration.
The window and door molding application must direct water away from the original under-lying wood material and prevent infiltration of water into the structure. Window and door trim applied to exterior window and door casing (brick-moulding) and their associated parts is often referred to as window molding or door molding. This sort of molding is typically applied in order to eliminate the need to re-paint wood window and door trim. The aluminum molding helps to prevent wood rot by protecting the wood from water and snow. However, capping will exacerbate wood rot if the moisture in the wood is coming from inside the building or the molding leaks. Good installation of window and door molding allows for an outlet for water in the event of a leak. Caulking and sealant materials may be used to help prevent leaks but these products are not considered reliable in the long-term.
A sill that has been clad should provide a “drip cap” or “drip-control” function. This will serve to direct water away from the wall surface directly underneath the sill. The leading edge of the sill must be the lowest point on the sill to ensure that water does not wick into the sill material.
Window capping may provide a marginal increase in energy efficiency by decreasing the potential for drafts by providing an extra barrier between the exterior and the interior.
The most common material used in residential window and door molding is factory painted aluminum. An alternative to factory painted aluminum is to use a vinyl coated aluminium material.
Aluminum molding can be painted so long as the painter is highly skilled and knowledgeable in the field of metal painting.
