Window Capping – A Niche Art

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.

    Professional service from respectful contractors. They left the job site clean and met the project deadlines as promised. They also responded to questions in a reasonable time frame. I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality work from a reputable company.

    Great company. I called S & S after the recent storms in the area caused some damage to my siding. I was a little nervous due to a piece of siding hanging from my cable lines.

    We recently had our roof redone by S & S. We dealt with Zack who was very professional from start to finish. The roof was done in a little over a day and they left no evidence they were even there (except for the beautiful new roof!)We are very happy with our experience and will definitely be using them again in the … read more future.

    Gavin Subers was excellent at reviewing our needs and recommended a Craftbuilt-Aristocrat retractable awning for our residence. We had the work completed in April and couldn't be happier. Joe Paris and his assistant (also named Joe) did a great job on the installation. I highly recommend S & S Remodeling!

    Would recommend S & S highly. Being a senior citizen and not knowing what is what. I needed a new roof and Zach worked with me and his crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you so much again Zach. Will be calling in the future to get more work done. God Bless, Frank and Ann Marie Dunlap Siermine.
