Default Window arches

I am currently working on a new build house in London which has brick arches over the windows. I have seen arch supports on other houses, all of which have discoloured -- some considerably. The architect has suggested Catnic thermo-plastic arches, the Catnic brochure says that they are completely weather-proof. Are they any good? do they need treating? Some of the arches will be in places not easily accessable so regular treatment is not practical.

Any help or suggestions appreciated!

If your talking about just the trim, and not the support for the bricks that forms an arch then yes PVC is the way to go.
