Re: Window Sills on new windows
Problem is many new windows are not formed to take molding in the way that traditional wood-framed windows were. They can still look OK from the curb, but close inspection reveals the galling shortcomings. When a new window (like Andersen 400 series) has a 1x1 protrusion of clad molding as the jamb, you are stuck with it; any additional molding can only butt up to it, as it's too thick to cover. There obviously are windows that can be custom-ordered with any trim configuration you desire (like Marvin Magnum/Ultimate lines) but "if you have to ask how much they cost..."
Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
