Aluminum Window Trim

Hello

I'm new here and am about to start my first home project this spring. I need to trim out my exterior windows with aluminum trim. I found a site Trim Bender - Home were they bend the trim for you which seems easier then tring it my self, I think. My question is has anyone dealt with these guys and is it something a home owner can handle by them selves.

Thanks for any help

My understanding is that using a metal brake is a skill. It might just be better to have someone bend the aluminum for you.

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and ordered from trimbender. I should have my trim shortly and will let you know how it turns out. I am looking forward to this project and hoping it will turn out.

Thanks again, Tank180

Hi Tank,

Did you ever complete your trim job and how was it using that
Company Trim bender for your trim pieces?

The reason I'm asking is I was thinking of ordering from them and was wondering how there service was?

Thanks

rickc...you may never see a reply. Poster only had these 2 posts and hasn't been back.

Not that it's can't happen...I've seen people subscribe to a thread they made and then come back 2 yrs later after they were notified of a new post.

Someone else may have a comment also.

btw...welcome to the Forum!

Hi, Rickc29

Sorry for not updating my post. I did complete my trim job and it turned out better than I expected. It was a bit tricky cutting the angles for the brick mold at first but once I got that down the rest was a breeze. I would definitely recommend trimbender for ordering your trim. If I remember correctly I think I had my trim in 5 days.

Good luck on your project.

Thanks, Tank180
