Exterior Frames

WSI carries Wood, Vinyl Wrapped, Aluminum Cladded and PVC Composite jamb materials in various jamb sizes. We can make a frame to fit your door or provide you a complete prehung unit. Contact us for more info.

The frame (sometimes called a jamb) is made up of three separate pieces and surrounds the door creating a “frame” in which the door can sit. The two vertical frames are called side jambs, and the horizontal frame is referred to as the head jamb. Frames are made up of (FJP) finger joint pine, FJP with white vinyl wrap, FJP with metal aluminum cladding and Full PVC composite material.

FJP with white vinyl wrap, FJP with metal aluminum cladding, and PVC Composite frames are best suited for all exposure types as they protect from the exterior elements and are maintenance free.

Brickmould

Brickmold is used as casing around exterior doors. It is molding around the door frames that abuts the exterior facing material of the building and serves as an aesthetic boundary between the siding and the frame. It is also known as trim and casing. Brickmold can be made of different materials: finger joint pine, composite vinyl or Aluminum slimline nail fin. The key differences between material are the cost and the durability.

Aluminum slimline nail fin

Our Aluminum slimline brickmould includes an integrated nail fin flange which allows to screw onto the exterior sheathing so that the siding or stucco can go over top of it. This flange is almost always used when the door unit is going into a new opening, but it is also used frequently in replacement applications.
