Hi, I'm going to be covering my existing timber window sills with PVC Fascia Boards https://www.toolstation.com/shop/p58910?table=no, my question is how do I cut the board to match the existing architrave?

Thanks!

NOW, that looks just like the task I'm going to have.
Please allow me to 'coat tail' you.

All I can think of is a

Profile Contour Gauge.

Not that I've ever used one - yet!

Yeah, that's what my dad has suggested, it's all the little details and curves I think it's going to struggle. I was thinking of making a plyboard template?

1st, that is dam expensive overboard :shock: try finding it at places like Eurocell or a building plastics company local to you, i pay less than half that cost for bigger boards.

2nd, that is dead easy to do without worrying about scribing anything. simply place a piece of board on top of your existing sill, use a multi-master and cut the architrave to allow the overboard to slide in. simple & neat.

id remove the trim from around the window though and put the overboard right up to the window frame.

Make a profile with some thin card first, and then transfer it to the sill. So if you make any mistakes with the card you can do it time and time again till you get it perfected,

And I thought it was cheap! Cheers I'll have a shop around. I'm just a bit nervous of cutting the frame but it looks like that's. Going to be the cleanest way of doing it. Is this the same way as when laminate flooring is fitted under door frames?

Cool, thanks. Got to say I've asked this on two other diy fourms and not had any answers. Thanks to you all.

also, if you are going to be doing the whole sill i would join the boards together with proper PVC glue such as
http://www.eurocell.co.uk/sealants-and-fixings/glues/silversil-s-glue-high-viscocity-50g-btl
http://www.eurocell.co.uk/sealants-and-fixings/glues/superglue-activator-200ml
http://www.eurocell.co.uk/trims-and-cills/window-boards - seems i must get a fair trade discount of these prices though. i would go instore, i bet you will get a better deal.

Yeah they're bay windows and I've got three to do, I was going to use white sealant to try and hide the corner join a bit? I've. Assumed a no nails style glue would hold them in place ok?

the glue above is what we use in the trade. trying to join with silicone looks messy.

if you do not feel confident enough to cut your boards correctly 1st go, simply template your pieces priory to cutting the boards. i say this because although it may look easy, the required angles/straight edges vary to what people think they need to be and on novice 1st attempt they usually end up wrong. once you are happy, find grade sand the edges to be glued, spray activator on one board, glue on the other, hold together for 10 seconds (do it on a flat surface with a gap between so that the join is not in conact with anything). once done, you will have to snap the boards to part it.
yes you can use a polymer grip type adhesive to stick them down. probably best to rought he gloss finish up 1st though
