No, the pre-painted aluminum we use eliminates the need to paint. A sensible cleaning schedule is required to keep your new window capping looking fresh well into the future. Rinse the dust off with clean water regularly to prevent a build-up of grime. Occasional cleaning can be done with a soft clean cloth and clean water now and then to keep the dust down. Stubborn dirt and bugs can be cleaned by adding a mild detergent such as liquid dish soap to the wash water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. That's it. No more painting, ever!
Yes, no problem at all. Your glass repairman will quickly understand where the fasteners are located and will then be able to remove the cladding. The sealed unit stops and the glass are removed as usual. After the new sealed unit is installed the stops and cladding are replaced and caulking is re-applied. A qualified and experienced glass repairman will easily deal with the cladding without damaging anything. If your repairman is unsure of what is necessary it's possible that they don't have the required skills and it may be advisable to look for another repairman. If the glass repairman has any questions they are welcome to call "John's Window Capping" and we will be happy to explain things and answer any questions they may have.
No, our style of cladding does not leave fasteners exposed. We ensure that all fasteners are discretely hidden by the caulking. This time tested method of installation ensures that all fasteners are hidden and protected. This guarantees a clean appearance, long life, easy maintenance and a style that produces an attractive appearance now and well into the future. We appreciate your investment and recognize that your windows are a valuable asset.
No, we ensure that all painted and un-painted wood is covered by your new cladding. We ensure that all of the exterior wood is protected with no possibility of exposure to further decay. Let us show you the difference between our method and their method. There really is no comparison.
Yes. If weatherstripping is damaged or worn out the customer will be advised of this. The homeowner will then have the option of adding new weatherstripping to their order for a small extra charge.
Yes. We believe that your windows should work properly after we've finished our job. Occasionally this means replacing worn out hardware. We check the operation of all windows before we clad them and will inform you if we think the hardware is worn or if it just needs cleaning, usually cleaning is all that's required.
We are capable of replacing glass and will do so at your request. We do many sealed unit upgrades for those homeowners who want to increase the energy-efficiency of their windows. Low-E glass is recommended for the comfort you expect and the energy savings you require.

Aluminum window capping is simply a custom bent piece of aluminum which is then applied to a base element, usually wood. When applied to the exterior wood detail of a home cladding can eliminate the need for continuous maintenance of these elements. When applied to the exterior of a window frame, door frame or other wood element window capping can often eliminate the need to replace windows that have begun to exhibit wear and tear from years of use and, quite possibly, years of neglect. Like all projects you undertake at your home be sure to get at least three written estimates for all projects. These estimates have to reflect very similar materials and quality of workmanship. Be sure to ask the competing bidders to provide contact info for previous customers and use this info to arrange on-site inspections of window capping or other cladding work that's been done recently. In this business, as in many others, you're only as good as your last installation. Make sure that you specify, in writing, that you will receive the same or better workmanship on your home. Window capping can eliminate maintenance and make your windows more attractive.
