Helping out family member, question on exterior window trim

Hello, my family member has had someone come in and install a window with nailing flanges in a brick rough opening.

Im not sure what to do. They put 1" trim on the sides of the window but nothing on the top or bottom.

the measurements of each space are :

top 36"w ◊ 3 1/2" d x 1"H

bottom 36" w x 4" d x 5 1/8" H

i have a picture but couldnt figure out the link situation

thanks

What was the installer's excuse for not finishing the job?

I assume the side trim is vinyl ? How are the bottoms of the other windows finished? marble or concrete stool? brick up to the bottom of the window?

Normally you would have a mortared soldier row of brick along the bottom, on edge, set at a 10-15 degree angle. The trim on the sides would normally go on after the brick sill is installed... and the trim would not extend all the way out to the face of the brick like that. It would be 1 1/2 thick at most... ripped as wide as it needs to be to fit between the window and the brick on the sides and top. Then the perimeter would be caulked. Caulk the trim to the brick.... and caulk the trim to the window.
