harditrim

i was looking at installing harditrim on the corners when i replace my siding
but the sizes dont make sense to me?
the trim now is 3 1/2 on one wall and 4 1/2 x 1 on the other so the sides are the same size
the harditrim comes in
3 1/2
5 1/2
7 1/4
11 1/4
all by 1
do you have to ripe a piece or just not have them even on each side??

thanks Johnny

Yes, if you wanted the sides to appear equal, you would buy half and half, and rip the 5 1/2" trim down to 4 1/2. If you can make a *very straight rip* you "could" buy the 7 1/4, and rip it down the middle into 2 pieces- one of them 3 1/16 and the other 4 1/16... the blade will eat up the other 1/8. But I don't like ripping the harditrim so I usually avoid using it altogether.

I typically use wood on corners and window trim and prime and paint it REALLY well. It's just easy to work with (ripping is, or course, easy as pie). It's also much less expensive.
