Bendable Brick Mold

I have rotted brickmold around some of my windows including a half round window. I used the PVC brick mold sold at Menards to fix some other windows and it turned out good. I am having a hard time finding bendable brick mold though.

Also I had some windowns replaced and the guys who did it said if I wanted them to cap it they would need to special order materials. Is it custom when you work with arches?

Thanks

Yes...it will need to be special ordered...almost any place that sells regular wood and PVC moulding can order it. You will need to provide exact measurements or a template.

btw...even though it is flexible..you can't just order a straight piece and bend it...esp for something as thick as BM.

Just do a search for Flexible molding...you'll get plenty of hits. Or go down to your local lumberyard/molding supplier.

What do professionals use when they cap the arch instead of using a brick mold?

Couldn't tell you really. I assume you are talking about "capping" to mean covering with bent roll painted aluminum?

If you just mean "trimming out" the window...it's either ordered with the window from the manufacturer..or if a sided home and vinyl windows..they can just bend the channel around and then cut the siding to fit it.

No Pro...thats why I just addressed your question about the BM. THAT I knew for sure.
