Updated on May 17, 2024

Sandstone Window and Door Trim (WDT) can be used as a universal trim piece to terminate sections of NextStone™ where the panels will not turn a corner and/or as a trim piece around windows and doors. For most applications, Sandstone Window and Door Trim must be installed prior to the panels.

When using the WDT as a termination piece for a wainscot application:

Step 1

Measure the total height of the wall before the Ledger attachment to determine length/height of WDT needed.

Step 2

Use a level when placing WDT. Screw at a 45° angle through the top of the piece and down along the inside edge making sure to attach securely to the underlying substrate. To miter for use with ledger, cut the top of the piece on a 15°angle, with the long side of the angle against the wall. (Shown below #1)

Step 3

If desired, a wood rasp can be used to round edges of the door/window trim to provide a more realistic look. Touch-up paint can be applied to the area formed with the rasp. Always use a finished end to start and terminate a section of door window trim. Cut ends can be butted tight and concealed with touch-up paint and caulk. (Shown below #2) End Ledger with a factory finished end. (See ledger installation).
