Fortunately, installing exterior trim around your front door is pretty straightforward. Here’s what you’ll need:
-X-acto knife
-Small crowbar
-Hammer
-PVC brick molding door kit
-Construction adhesive (make sure it’s PVC- & exterior-appropriate)
-#6 galvanized finishing nails (galvanized= resists rust)
-Miter saw (We didn’t have this and improvised. This is what you’re supposed to use…)
-Measuring tape
-Caulk
-Exterior paint
