Question

I am renovating a vacation home on Cape Cod - it needs new siding, trim and windows. I want no maintenance (doesn't everyone?) that will stand up to harsh ocean weather.

What products (vendors) are available & reccomended for the trim (facias, corner 1Xs, window trim)? solid vinyl? vinyl over wood core?

thanks

Usually the trim used in conjunction with vinyl siding is aluminum coil that has a PVC finish coat (to achieve both the color and texture). The installer cut and bend it to the size and shapes needed for window trim, facias, etc. The corners are usually just a vinyl extrusion.

A good soffit and fascia man/woman can bend the trim coil to look just vinyl.

Tapco http://www.tapco-intl.com has some interesting pre-formed trim products.
