EXTERIOR TRIM INSTALLATION DETAILS - CONTENTS: Building Exterior Trim Exterior Building Trim Installation Details. Exterior building trim installation guide, installation methods, and details to avoid trim damage, rot, or loss.
This article provides examples of exterior trim rot, delamination, or other damage traced to choice of materials, nailing methods, or omission of adequate flashing or sealant. The first portion of this article series includes excerpts or adaptations from Best Practices Guide to Residential Construction, by Steven Bliss, courtesy of Wiley & Sons. Our photo (below left) illustrates Steve Bliss's point: the gap that has opened at the window sill and trim provides a ready path for rain to enter the building wall cavity. In the window trim photograph above my [DF] key points to rotted brickmold trim around an exterior window. At FLASHING SIDING DETAILS we emphasize that improper detailing of the ends of J-flashing on vinyl or aluminum sided buildings also leads to window trim rot and window leaks that often originate at the window head trim.
You'll notice that where the nails penetrated the skin of this hardboard trim the deterioration was most rapid. As our photographs illustrate just below, the exposed end grain of wood trim is particularly vulnerable to water absorption and subsequent rot as well as insect damage.
I [DF] like to see an inch or inch and a half of clearance between the end of vertical wood trim and the nearest horizontal surface.


Where no clearance space is feasible, such as at vertical window trim abutting a window sill, it is important to seal the end and all other sides of the wood trim before nailing it in place, followed by painting or staining, followed by use of a compatible sealant (caulk) around the joint of wood trim to the horizontal surface.
Below you can see significant rot at vertical wood trim along the side of a window at its sill abutment. My second window trim rot photo (above right and probed at below left) shows that even if the vertical trim was given good clearance above a roof top or other horizontal surface, a horizontal abutting wood trim end grain will also pick up water and subsequently rot unless the connection is properly prepared with sealant and then kept caulked and painted. Requirements are detailed at TRIM, EXTERIOR CHOICES, INSTALLATION where we discuss best construction practices in the choice, installation, painting, and maintenance of exterior trim on buildings.
We discuss solid wood trim, finger-jointed wood trim, hardboard trim, LVL trim, fiber cement building trim, polymer trim products, and cellular PVC building trim products and details.

The rot and leaks at this window were temporarily repaired using a wood filler, sealant, and paint, but it's the combination of rain splash in this location and omission of a Z-flashing over the horizontal window trim that accelerate the trim rot in this location.


In my [DF] experience, hardboard siding and trim don't fare well exposed to the exterior environment and are particularly vulnerable at cuts or surface penetrations. The absence of zee-flashing between the siding bottom and the horizontal surface of the trim board's top also contribute to trim deterioration: water runs behind and along the trim surface.
At below left the building exterior has been ignored so long that not only is there extensive rot to vertical and horizontal trim, we expected (and found) leaks into the walls and wall structure damage from rot and insects. Home inspectors know that if they were going to select one location to inspect around a window for trim damage, this would be a good one. The Everflashing product comes in G-185 and Stainless Steel and is intended for use with treated lumber with copper in it.

It would be very unfortunate, if the small trip between the delivery truck and your home, the product pieces are subjected to unnecessary damage.

The hardboard trim in my photo was installed as the water table, a band of horizontal trim at the base of exterior siding around a building. My second photo (above right) shows the softening and beginning of deterioration where the hardboard siding nail penetrates its surface. Everflashing produces a variety of specialty flashing products including flashings for use with decks at deck ledgers and deck perimeters.
