Half Round Window Trim Aluminum

Half Round Window Trim Aluminum

This is unheard of by most.  In the past, the only trim that could flex around a round window was molded wood or vinyl.  As homeowners are paying more for windows and siding installs, they are becoming more demanding.  They refuse to paint that one half round trim piece when the rest of their house is maintenance free.  Personally, I would not want to either.

Onyx Xteriors has devised a way to eliminate this challenge. 

How?  Using roll forms, the aluminum is formed into a rounded trim piece to fit the diameter of your window trim.  The entire process of manufacturing a half round window trim piece is about three days.  The drying process takes up most of this time where the piece sits comfortably on a table under cooling fans.  Once the trim piece is ready, it is removed for cleaning and wrapped in low friction plastic to protect it during shipping.  If the half round trim is shipping Fed Ex Ground, it will be crated into a cardboard box.  For Fed Ex Freight, ½ inch OSB is used to guard the product against the fork lifts.

Color Match?  Yes, the color will match.  Aluminum cannot be painted with any assurances of the paint not pealing.  So, Onyx Xteriors does not paint the products.   The coil ordered is the same coil used on the jobsite for the other window trim.  Since the coil is coated by its manufacturer, no painting is needed.  It is the same coil.

Measuring?  Measuring a round object is the same as a square one.  Just requires a few extra measures.  First determine the bottom of the half round.  If there is no divider or window seal, use tape to mark where the bottom would be.  Then, butt the tape measure to the inside of the trim on the left and measure across the bottom to the inside the trim on the right.  Then, place the tape measure outside the trim and take the measure to the outside of the trim across the bottom.  Now, using the same bottom point, measure up from the bottom to under the top of the trim.  Also, to over the top of the trim.  Only one measure to go.  The depth of the trim.  If the trim is sloped or beveled, you can place a pencil flat on the outer most protrusion of the trim and hold it square.  Place the tape measure against the window or window stop and measure out to the pencil.  That is only five measures and you are done.  Do not add or subtract from these measures.  Orders are based off the actual trim measures.  The HRWT machines will form the aluminum to fit over the half round window trim.

Choices?  There are two choice of trim styles to choose from.  The smooth faced half round window trim is smooth, flat across the face and made on all 90 degree angles to match the trim the installer would have placed on the other windows.  The striated half round window trim is formed to match the brake buddy and brick mold on the face of the trim.  This gives more definition to the job for installers using the brake buddy on other window trim.

Installation?  The simplicity may impress.  Just hold the aluminum half round window trim in place at the top of the wood trim.  Mark one side at the bottom where it needs to be trimmed and trim it.  Then, sit the cut side in place and line up the top again.  Mark the other side for trimming.  Now, slide your trim into place and seal it off.  Trim nails can be used, but usually the trim is tight enough to hold itself in place while the sealant dries.

Specs?  All trim is made to the specs provided by the customer.  Depth, width, color and style.  All trim pieces are manufactured about two inches too long to allow for trimming straight or angled depending upon the window style.  Trim pieces approximate ¼ inch in thickness in comparison to the .019 aluminum used by installers.
