Remove kitchen window ?

our kitchen window must of been installed wrong ? as the trim ring is under
the kitchen counter top by about 3/4 inch making a catch all for water
from sink use
plan [ a] remove window and frame in and fiberglas area and paint
and install fullbackspash

plan [ b ] shim wall and install new plywood over window and install
full backspash

plan is to install new counter tops and it will be the only time to work
on it as it behind and lower then the counter top
thoughts on this
thanks john

cutting down the cabinets not much help as doors are 1'' above floor
might get 1/4 off top if lucky

as for sell coach not selling we just bought it

looked at many pictures of same coach on line. and window is 2-2 1/2''
above counter top wish i had a good picture to post but its in fl. and we are home

have not seen any rv where window frame is behind / under counter top
must of been a factory mistake

eazy fix so far is to tint window and cover over on inside and tile

any other fixes ???

Posting some photos of the area from inside and outside might help.

"kustom".....If I were asked to repair your issue, I would remove the window and move it up 3", unless the window is framed in steel/aluminum. If it is, I would then order a shorter window and replace. I would repair the fiberglass and either try and match the paint/fiberglass, or use a disguise, like a USA map, stripe or even a fake vent.

Once you're done, you can than redo the interior and install a backsplash. They make some nice backsplashes, using the rectangular glass pieces, that has a stick on backing. You can easily install it without adhesive or grouting.

Without a picture it is hard to come up with a plan so here is a guess.
Go to a counter top shop and see about getting a solid surface strip about one inch high that you can glue to the back of the counter. This would provide a lip across the window area and prevent water and crumbs from getting into the frame.
For looks it would need to go the entire width of the counter.

I think Selah has the right idea. A good looking piece of countertop material glued to the rear of your countertop would serve as a dam and stop anything from getting to the window. This would be very cost effective and unintrusive, and should solve the problem if I understand it correctly.

A lot of these windows are HEHR. You can call them and order a new window in the size you need.

If you can live with small "fiddle" at the back of the counter, that would certainly be the easiest and least expensive solution.

It's probably easier to install a slightly smaller window than to fill the window opening to make a solid wall, and I'd bet that the cost isn't much different. Fitting a large patch to the exterior wall surface without it being obvious and ugly takes some real skill. A couple inches below the window frame should be much easier to blend-in. I like lots of natural light and fresh air, so filling the hole wouldn't be on my list.
