How to Assemble Exterior Window Trim

Sweenor Builders developed a process for trimming out windows that yields tight joints sure to withstand harsh climates

On a recent trip to our Westerly Ranch House project I caught up with Adam Spink, a lead carpenter for Sweenor Builders. Adam has developed an efficient process for trimming out windows that produces a flawless look exemplary of the quality craftsmanship Sweenor Builders is noted for. In this video, he builds a sample to illustrate his process. He and his team use a pre-treated pine product that resists rot. Combined with exterior-grade glue, fasteners, primer and paint, the trim is sure to withstand Westerly’s climate while maintaining its aesthetic for decades to come.
