Window and Trim Question

Posted by silverbullet007 (My Page) on

I am looking to replace my 24 year old aluminum clad windows with Marvin Integerity all ultrex casements in the pebble Grey exterior. I plan to install these full frame.

I belive we will have to cut back the siding 2-3 inches so that we can properly install the window and put up a new 3 in trim around the windows that I do not have today.

I know that it will change the look with the new trim but I see a lot of cedar sided houses that have trim around the windows.

Do you think it will be fine to add the trim? Think it will look ok?

As far as the trim, I was thinking about the LP SmartSide Trim with the cedar grain instead of using the cedar trim board. Do you think that would be a mistake to mike the LP Smartside trim with real wood cedar?

Thanks

I do not believe it would be a mistake at all and I also believe it will look better than you can imagine.
