Hi, have recently moved in to our first family home and need some advice on our external window sills. The house had new windows fitted around 12 years ago and for some reason some of the external sills have been replaced to white pvc and others have been left as angled red tiles. As you can imagine it is really irritating that they dont match!

How easy would it be to replace the tiled cills with pvc? Are there any pvc covers that can be used to 'cap' ths tiled cills?

I am not a very experienced DIY'er so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Pictures would defo help. But my first thought is that it should be easy enough. Places like selco do lots of upvc covers. All you need is gripfill and a saw. And then some silicone to finish it all off.

Gripfill is water soluble so it is best to use silicone as an adhesive. If you have a look at fascia boards they might give the required lip to provide a drip sill although you may have to cut them down to fit the width.
