Default Cellular PVC J Pocket TrimBoard

Anybody have any experience with J Pocket Trim Boards in this situation.

I am siding an entire house with CertainTeed Perfection 7" Cedar Impressions and using 1/2" fan fold backer board over Tyvek house wrap.

I want to use Restoration Millwork (A CertainTeed Company) J Pocket Trim Board instead of standard Lineals or J-channels around all new Andersen windows. I will of course flash all windows before installing Trim Boards. My only concern is water getting behind Trim Boards. Someone suggested that instead of butting the 1/2 backer board up to the windows, I should use 1/2 " plywood to trim the windows and them apply the J Pocket TrimBoards on top of the plywood.

I have spoken to Restoration Millwork a number of times and they say this application; Trimboard on top of 1/2" backer board is fine. I know other contractors are doing the same and some even field cut J channel pockets out of 5/4 x 4 Trimboards.

I am just looking for anybody's experience using an Azek type J Pocket Trim Board with any type of Cedar impression siding.

I guess the real question is what kind of windows are you getting? Are they replacement or new construction?

And welcome to Houserepair Talk.

It is new construction. Windows are Andersen 400 series.
