    Default External aluminium trim for windows on weatherboards

    Hi all,

    I am replacing old timber sash windows with aluminium sliding windows. I have seen other windows around the neighborhood that appear to have an aluminium version of the timber trim that goes around the outside of the windows on the external face.

    I guess I just don't know the terminology as I am having a hellavu time finding anywhere to get these or any how-to's. I figure they would go on just like timber ones, but like to be sure of these things

    I was going to give steeline a call and ask them, but thought I would call in here as well.

    Any info on installation and purchase would be greatly appreciated. I am in Bendigo, Victoria if that is of any use

    I think what you are looking for are aluminium architraves.

    Any of the aluminium window manufacturers should be able to help with this.
