Dealing with extension jamb 3/8" to short.
Trying to get the house ready to sell, so finishing up some projects around the house. Replaced windows a few years ago and never go around to trimming two of them out in the old section of the house. The two windows were custom made with jambs, but when ordering them I did not take into consideration the house was build in the mid 60s and they used what I call buffalo board (a insulated fiber board) that is 3/4" thick for the sheathing.
I need to extend the jambs about 3/8". I do have a table saw, but do not have a thin rip jig.
I thought about getting some 1/4" hardboard and caulk to fill the rest of the gap. Any thoughts? This is paint grade trim and jamb.
Also when extending the jamb would I flush up the extension piece or leave a revel?
