2 x 4 Wood Trim Around Window

 
 

Here is a nice example of a lap siding building with 2 x 4 wood trim around the window. There are many different styles and methods for trimming out the windows on homes with wood or cement fiber siding.

It's not common to install another wood trim piece on top of the window trim like you see in the picture above. When I was looking at the architectural detail for the window, I wasn't impressed, but it turned out nice and added a little more detail to the home.

I prefer using 2 x 4 wood trim and leading the siding to it, instead of using 1 x 4 trim over the lap siding. Its seals the exterior of the home better.
