What’s a window cap?
Most replacement windows have protruding exterior trim. Window capping is intended to protect the wood sill from the elements. Not only does it offer an extra layer of protection, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing. A window cap is most typically done with aluminum coil. Available in all colors, but is most typically used in white.

How do you cap a window?
Capping a window is much harder than it looks. The aluminum comes in 50′ malleable rolls. A large expensive special tool is required to bend the aluminum, a “Metal Brake.” Measurements are taken, and depending on the situation, multiple complicated bends may need to be made. Bending & capping is by far the most time consuming process of installing a window. After the bends are made, the aluminum is attached around the window trim.

What’s so niche about it?
The fact of the matter is, capping is an incredibly niche skill. The vast majority of “Carpenters” have probably little to no experience using a metal brake. Learning to bend sheet metal with a brake can take years to become an expert. At S&S Remodeling Contractors LLC, we pride ourselves in having veteran installers who are considered window experts.
