Vinyl window sills from Sill-Rite are made with pre-finished composite PVC that requires no priming or painting. The white sills wrap around the sides of the window as opposed to having a butt cut; can be installed during or after applying drywall; and help prevent moisture damage. The product has two lines: classic and streamline.
