PVC exterior trim

Does anyone have experience with this stuff? I've got some rotting trimwork that needs replacing, and I'm considering using this stuff.
Thanks.

It's fine stuff for that. There are only a couple of caveats. The stuff expands and contracts with changes in temperature and you have to allow for that. Painting it too dark of a color will exacerbate the temperature-based movement and may cause the PVC to deform.
Other than that it works much like wood. Check out Versatex and Azek products.

I've used it as baseboard in the garages on some of the houses I build and it seems to hold up well for that particular area ... pretty cheesy looking just about anywhere else, IMO.
Otherwise, it's western red cedar, or Hardi trim ...

I have used it for door trim and love it . The old adage vinyl is final. My house is aluminum and vinyl Maintenance Free It has been on 2 years with no problems. The only problem I have seen with vinyl is poor installation practices and the job looked bad because of this. ( Screen room trim)
