Aluminum Capping

Aluminum Capping Solutions For Ottawa Residents

Garage Living of Ottawa offers aluminum capping for your garage doorframe. This nicely complements your new garage door, but also reduces the level of maintenance required. We simply wrap the existing doorframe in your colour of choice to give your house a clean, finished appearance. This minor upgrade improves your curb appeal and can help to increase the resale value of your home.

Capping is a cladding or wrapping of aluminum sheeting over exterior wood trim. Your existing wooden garage doorframe is custom-fitted with aluminum sheets that are custom-cut and formed. This covers the worn-out doorframe containing unsightly cracks and chips. The capping is sealed with industrial grade caulking and can also match your brick or your new garage door.

Low maintenance

Aluminum capping will decrease drafts and increase your home’s energy efficiency because of the weather-resistant barrier created between your garage’s exterior and interior. Garage Living of Ottawa’s aluminum capping also eliminates the need for ongoing maintenance. Say goodbye to having to stain, scrape, or paint your garage’s wooden doorframe every few years!
