When you’re getting new replacement windows, there is more than just the glass and the frame that are being replaced.
In order to make sure your new windows function to their full capacity, it isn’t enough to just keep the warm air inside the house. It is also important to keep the drafts and moisture out of your home, and the wall envelope.
That’s why full-frame window replacements require the changing of jamb extensions, and brickmoulds.
A brickmould is a vinyl cover that goes on the outside of the window to cover the gap between the frame and the wall.
It also acts as an aesthetic piece for a nice looking transition between the window frame and the existing exterior finish.
When caulked properly, brickmoulds prevent water from entering and gathering in the space between the window and the wall.
They also come in a variety of sizes for a perfect fit with the exterior, and colours to match the custom finish of your vinyl windows.
