I have been replacing the the original pine trim around the windows of my home's exterior because of rot. The 5/4" X 6 clear cedar that I have been using over the years for this purpose is primed and painted white before installing. Now that I am getting quotes up to $5.oo per foot it was suggested to me that I might switch to 5/4" X 6 white PVC @ $45.00 per 18' board. Of course the idea of using plastic makes me cringe but maybe it makes the most sense. I would appreciate comments and feedback.
