WINDOWS & CLADDING

 

When Ultimate installs ALUMINUM CAPPING:

 

ALUMINUM HEAVY GAUGE COIL

 

This decreases the chance of the material buckling when the finished piece is installed and is then subject to the sun.

 

 

THERMOPLASTIC CAULKING

 

Thermoplastic caulking is superior because:

 

 

SILL TRIM

 

A sill trim is used around all sealed units and some doors. This sill trim has the following advantages:
Allows the aluminum to move without bucklingHides staples or nailsMakes it safer to fasten near the glassAccommodates a smaller caulking beadAssures a finished edge around some doors.

 

 

MATERIAL IS FORMED ON SITE

 

This site manufacturing process eliminates any chance of delays due to showing up on the job with an incorrect size.

 

 

BUILD OUT FRAMES WHEN NECESSARY

 

Often companies put siding and capping on a house with no regard for the end appearance. The natural look of window frames is to extend past the siding and we will assure this is the end result.

 

 

CAULKING APPLICATION

 

We caulk all joints in the capping as well as up to the window and back to the wall. This assures a weather tight seal. In most cases, we don't caulk the return against the wall under the bottom sill. This is to allow any moisture from condensation to escape and prevent the possibility of rot.

 

 

WEEP OR DRAIN HOLES ON WINDOWS

 

We always consider the fact that the water within the tracks of the window requires an escape route and we assure that we do not impede this route with aluminum or caulking.

 

 

CUSTOM FORMING

 

Normally we block form the capping over the wooden brickmold of the window. Should you have a step brickmold and you want the capping to follow steps in the brickmold, chances are we can accommodate your wish. Please ask!

 

 

SEAMLESS LONG LENGTH

 

Our installers use portable 10 ½ foot forming equipment.
