I am in need of suggestions:
I am building a house and am looking for a no-maint exterior trim for
around my windows and garage door. The windows are vinyl with no
brickmould. The siding will be coloured stucco. I would like a wide
trim (approx 6"). Ideally the trim would be fluted (or a bit of a
profile so it is not just flat) and would have a mitre cut.
I understand there are some engineered wood products but I hear that
they are a bit pricy and they are not truly no-maint. Is it possible
to use hollow vinyl trim (lineals) with stucco siding? Would the
mitres not align nicely being that the product is hollow? The vinyls
typically has a channel to accept more vinyl siding, would this
present a problem with stucco? Is there any problem with expansion
(possibly at the mitres, or where it meets the stucco)?
Should I bother with a vinyl solution or just get the engineered wood?
Thanks in advance.
