Default Trim around storm doors?

I am going to be replacing my old siding with fiber cement siding. I am also puting new Larson Storm doors on my house. Right now i have wood trim around them. What is a better alternative to wood? I dont want anything that I have to scrape and re-paint time and time again. I want something that doesnt need to be painted at all.

Is there some kind of plastic trim or something that works well with fiber cement siding?

Yes, there are several extrusions of PVC that can be adapted to your need; or you could cover the existing wood with PVC coated aluminum coil stock. Neither would ever need painting.

Default Yup

In my experience......

We had one soak up some water...swell... then freeze and blow the whole door apart...slowly.

I would use the Andersens..plenty of good experiences so far.
