John's Window Capping has a time tested method of fabricating and installing cladding to window frames and door frames. We hide all of our fasteners and we never use screws. We always cover all of the exterior wood with metal and we seal everything with a high quality thermoplastic caulking.
We would like to illustrate some of the differences in installation methods and results so that you may become more critical when shopping for a window cladding professional.
The following image clearly shows what you may expect from many of our competitors. The method shown here uses screws to attach the metal to the wood frames of your windows and doors.
Notice the amount of wood that has been left exposed to the elements by this contractor. This exposed wood will continue to deteriorate and degrade and most homeowners will not be aware of this before purchasing.
This does not accomplish the objective of protecting your investment, unfortunately this method is frequently used by our competition.
The objective of cladding should be to eliminate maintenance and add cosmetic value to your home. Be aware of the differences in methods and take the time to choose a contractor that respects your asset more than the contractor that did this work. This method does not require the installer to ensure that the windows work properly, it is strictly cosmetic but the cosmetic value is questionable.
