I have 10 vinyl windows installed by professional company 5 yrs ago. The 11th window we installed ourselves this month, but want to trim it with the vinyl "moulding" that the professional installers used. The vinyl stuff they used comes in long sheets and they have a machine to bend it into the square shape and then they cut and install it as a moulding to finish off the window.

Where can we get this vinyl to be "bent" into the square shape of a moulding??? I called my old window company and other window companies, but they want me to buy the entire window!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hi phobosca,

Have you visited any Roofing and Siding Suppliers? How 'bout Home Depot or ***** or something? You can buy it but it may cost you about $50 for an entire roll.

It may be best to hire an independent window installer for $50 - $100 to do the job and be done w/it. 1) It would be professionally installed, 2) it would be 'guaranteed' (hopefully), 3) you wouldn't have 40' of sheeting, and 3) he'd have all the right 'tools'.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

Listen to Jay J..

You would have to buy a roll of coil stock and then use a brake to bend what you need.

You would be better served by finding someone working on a jobsite nearby and making them an offer.

By the time you get done trying this yourself, You could have a very large amount of scrap aluminum.

Good luck,
