At Creative Home Improvement, we’ve been installing Vinyl Siding in Fairfield County for almost 40 years.
Today we’re on a job in Shelton Connecticut, talking about the advantages of using custom aluminum trim when hanging vinyl siding.
The key to a quality vinyl siding project is your aluminum trim. We make the aluminum trim with a built in j channel. Two aspects of the built in j channel custom made aluminum trim – the siding fits right into the built in j channel and it also acts a a flashing to protect any water infiltration around your windows.
If you can pretend this is your wood trim around your windows, what some companies do – they take j channel, your standard j channel, put it right up to your wood trim, then all they do is wrap this with aluminum. So you’re left with aluminum, j channel, and then siding. So by doing it with the custom built aluminum j channel, we skip the j channel step, and the vinyl siding fits right into the attached j channel on our aluminum trim. And here’s the finished product.
On many of our projects, including this one, we recommend Cedar impressions from Certainteed. As you can see it looks just like real wood shingles, but never has to be painted.
