Installing window trim (Page 1)


 

Although window trim is not difficult to install, it does take time because there are so many different pieces involved. For a traditional treatment, this means one stool, one apron, two rosettes, two leg casings, and one head casing for a typical total of seven boards. And, if your existing windows jambs don’t extend to the outside surface of your wall, you’ll have to add three extension jambs before you do anything else. This brings the board total to 10. Take your time with each one and you’ll get good results.

 

 

Step 1. If you need extension jambs, nail these to the front edge of the window side and head jambs. Hold each casing board to its jamb, and mark its out side edge on the wall. Then make another mark 3/4 in. away. This second mark establishes the end of the stool board.

Step 2. Cut the stool to length, and hold it in place against the window. Use a square and sharp pencil to mark the inside dimension of the window jamb on both ends of the stool. Then use a combination square to measure the depth of the notches that must be cut in the stool so it can fit against the window (inset).
