The sill of the window is simply the bottom of the window frame. A window sill can exist in one of four states: finished drywall, unfinished with the window framing studs exposed, finished using a nice window sill material or finished with old, deteriorating window sill finishing material. A new window sill is very easy to install, but before installing a window sill, the sill area has to be measured so the window sill material can be sized to fit the area correctly.
