Damaged or missing “Window trim”, also referred to as “window stops” and “glazing bead” is a common problem that is often overlooked or neglected. The window trim serves a dual purpose of aesthetic enhancement and securing the glass. The extreme heat and UV rays from the sun in the Los Angeles area frequently damage the window stops. The window trim becomes very brittle and will begin to crack and eventually fall out. Replacing the window trim is a relatively inexpensive way to give your home and your windows a face lift if your windows do not yet need to be replaced.
There are many different styles, sizes and colors of window trim. The window trim generally must be replaced with a style identical to the original but when replacing them different color options will be available in most cases. Custom colors for your window trim is also an option.
Unfortunately for the homeowner very few window trim styles are available at the home improvement stores. The cost of the trim is minimal but changing the trim is extremely time consuming and difficult to do on your own.
