The term “capping” or “wrapping” refers to cladding your home’s exterior trim with a durable, weatherproof and long-lasting material that simulates the original finish and color. Synthetic materials like aluminum or vinyl are cut and shaped to the same profile as your trim and set over top. The wood window, door, rake and fascia casings are then “encased” in a maintenance-free material.
Trim capping provides significant returns for your home. Primarily, you will benefit from:
Capping your old windows and doors will not only make your house look better and newer, but it will also prevent your old wooden frame around your windows and doors from getting rotten on the inside. Capping will also help protect your home in the long run and will help winterize your home.
Part of making the choice in having your home’s wood trim capped is understanding how the capping installation and treatment process works. It’s actually a simple and relatively quick undertaking.

Making the trim profile is critical to properly fitting caps. This takes a special eye and a talent for detail. Complicated wood moldings can have a number of angles, steps or even curves in their profile. Duplicating these profiles is tough but craftspeople trained in the process and equipped with the proper tools can get the job done.
