Gaps between exterior window and trim
Hi, can someone answer a question for me? We had all new windows installed in our home, and others added to a new structure. On most of the windows (including the new construction) there is a gap, from about 1/16th to over 1/8th of an inch between the window frame and the trim boards all the way around the window. My contractor says this is a normal installation and they do not caulk the gap. I say the gap will attract dirt, water and insects if not caulked. Who's right here? Thanks so much!
