Aluminum wrap of old wooden window trim
Had someone suggest aluminum coil wrap over old (wide) pine window trim to encase lead paint.
I’m not experienced in use of trim coil, and obviously it’s done with some frequency, but it seems to me that is a possible condensation trap.
What am I missing? Is it just that it’s a relatively small coverage area so moisture can dry via migration out the adjacent wood siding?
Admittedly I’ve never batted an eye at use of trim coil as flashings, but entirely wrapping existing trim somehow feels different.
Other reasons it’s a good idea/bad idea?
