    I cannot find a vinyl new construction window that does not leave a gap in the existing siding, so I will repair the rotted wood. I plan to use the vinly composite molding and found that using a hammer and nail did not make for a good job. It seems that the stapler gun with narrow 2 inch staples would do the best.

    I would appreciate hearing from an experienced repairman.

    Thanks

    Or a brad gun with colored heads on the brads to match the trim.

    Oh! Excuse me, I was talking about inside work. Duhh there's no siding on the inside. My bad. Forget I ever said it.
