uPVC Capping for Covering Window Board
(1.25m long in choice of colour and width)
Revitalise your window boards!
Durable uPVC capping provides a clean low-maintenance finish to an old, damaged window board and is perfect for lining of window reveals.
These 9mm capping boards are exterior grade uPVC, exactly like the longer versions sold for use on house fascia. So unlike timber, they are unaffected by moisture, therefore ideal in wet areas and rooms of high humidity.

Fitting and Usage
Fitting the capping board as a window board cover is relatively straight forward. The following bullet points should provide some guidance but our detailed Fitting a Window Board Cover sheet is available on request.
- Cut capping board length to match overall length of existing window board (include the joggles that wrap around the reveal if they exist)
- If necessary, cut the back edge of capping board along length to equal existing board depth plus 9mm (allowance for thickness of front lip)
- Measure length of reveal and cut out any joggles as required
- Apply quick grab adhesive to top of window board before placing capping board firmly on top
- Trim end caps to desired length and fix with superglue
- Apply decorators caulk around edges for a neat finish if required
