The window sills were the main problem ~ and mainly on our window. So we headed to another large chain home improvement store and found window sill "wood" and the trim piece already grooved out and ready to install. My handy dandy husband tackled the job on Sunday afternoon ~ our cost for the supplies for 2 window sills was $45 and add in a few more $$ for the caulk he needed to get.........sure beats $345 for materials plus at least that much for labor. The "wood" is a manufactured product that won't rot, mold or mildew like wood can. The cost was more than wood but this will only have to be done once.
Here are some pictures ~
|the bushes hid a lot of damage ~ plus more was flaked off by Greg to see how deep it went|
|no more rotten sill|
|new sill in & front decorative piece clamped till the adhesive dries.|
Now all that's left is painting the trim & caulking the inside part of the frame.
Great job Greg!
I was here for technical support ~ the gofer!
