Let’s begin by exploring the different types of trims and their features.
Firstly, let’s clarify lap siding corner trim, often referred to as siding corners. These siding corners come as metal corner trim for wood siding, aluminum outside siding corners, hardboard siding corners, and many others. Outside siding corners will help you finish off your siding project. The siding will slide into the trim and create a finished look for your wall and/or enclosing.
There are different popular Pacific Northwest brands of trims:
Boral TruExterior® Trim is reversible with wood grain on one side and a smooth finish on the reverse. Its made with fly-ash, a by-product recovered from coal combustion. When fly-ash is combined with polymers, it becomes a durable material ideally suited for exterior siding and trim. Boral trims are ideal for soffits, porch ceilings, decorative wall applications, and other moisture-prone areas.
Traditionally, exterior trim has been wood. However, many choose a different type of trim these days, such as vinyl trim. It will not absorb moisture, warp, bow, or rot. PVC trim is a less expensive option of a trim.
