About a year ago we replaced the crap windows the builder installed when we built our home. Since then the focus has been on other areas, but with winter just around the corner it’s time to start buttoning up the outside.
So up and down the ladder with cypress trim boards, then caulk, and primer.
Just a suggestion, but if you are planning on building a home in the near future make a note and take it to the builder. “Please do not install the brick right up to the windows. If you do, the window is next to impossible to remove.”
