Looking for window sill/side ideas
i am finishing my basment and will have two glass block basement windows in the finished area (there are two other in the un-finished side). I am looking for a “solid surface” type material to use for the inside sill and the sides so I can “box” the opening nicely. I dont want to use wood or drywall on the off chance of a little condesation forming on the windows (have never seen a problem with this in my house, but with my luck LOL) plus I think it would look nice and be low maintaince ( I hate painting). Secondary is that it will be in direct contact with the concrete foundation.
I dont really want to use anything like Corian due to cost, but I am sure there is something similar but cheaper. I am thinking along the lines of like a PVC product or the such. The sill willbe about 2feet wide by 8inch’ish deep and the sides 8inch deep and about 2 feet high. Thinking 1/4 -1/2 inch thick would be sufficiant. Not looking for anything too fancy, pretty much looking to cover up the concrete foundation and low maintaince. White in color would be great.
Am I asking for the world?LMAO. Does anything like this exist? ANy ideas/suggestions/criticisms are welcome too.
TREX type material?
Yeah I thought about Trex (love that stuff, my entire deck including railing and steps are trex) My only concern about trex and other composite decking would be color (kinda want white for light refection and clean look) and size ( dont want any seams) and thickness of the stock.
I found some stuff called Star Board which is made for marine applications. It looks kind of promising, comes in sheets so I can cut what I need and comes in many thicknesses. Only problem is there is no adhesives that work with it ( I'd rather glue it up then screwing into concrete, more for asthetics than anything).
Any other ideas are welcome,
Thanks eric. I looked up aztek, didnt know that they made sheets, trim etc (though they only did decking). I will def look at them. Thanks again.
Hardie and paint is thin and cheaper than Azek.
