Posted on: 26 February 2015

If you have decided to use vinyl siding on your home, you have probably chosen a certain style of siding. This can be traditional lap siding, board-and-batten and other styles of styles. There are also different types of trim and cornice details that you can choose from to finish your siding. These different trim choices can give the siding on your home a different look. Here are some of the choices you have when it comes to trim and cornice for your vinyl siding installation:

1. Simple J-Channel Trim For Vinyl Siding

One of the simplest types of vinyl trim is a standard J-channel, which is the channel the edges of siding goes into. If you do not want large visible trim details, this is a good option. It is also one of the most affordable options that you have for vinyl siding trim. With some of the other trim designs, you will have to use j-channel in addition to other trim materials with your vinyl siding.

2. Composite Frieze-Boards And Keystones To Detail Windows

Frieze-boards are the wide trim details that you see around windows or at the bottom of cornice at the eaves of homes. These can be conventional wood products, or you can get them in vinyl composites that are designed to be used with vinyl siding products. If you want your home to have a certain look, such as craftsman-style, this is a great material to use to create the wide trim details for your exterior finish.

3. Adding Decorative Cornice Details To Vinyl Siding

Other styles you may choose for your home can include decorative trim details. This can be different types of moldings that are attached to the frieze-boards, such as crown molding and rake trim for gable ends that is attached to the fascia. If you want to have vinyl siding with a decorative finish, this is a great way to make the cornice and fascia on your home standout.

It can also be used for homes that have other materials, such as brick and stone, and a minimal amount of vinyl siding.  You can also have artificial exposed beams and rafters added to these details.

These are some of the choices that you have for the trim with your vinyl siding. If you want to have some of these details done to your home, contact a professional siding contractor and ask them about using these materials.

No Place Is As Important As Where You Live

I'm Maryann Delgado and I am very happy with the success my life has brought. One thing I have learned is to never underestimate the importance of your property, whether it is a storefront or your home. We spend the majority of our time in our homes, working and living our lives. I have visited many properties that just feel off. Those who live in work on these properties don't understand the changes that can be made to how they construct their buildings. I have had to learn everything I can about construction in order to build my perfect home and I have many lessons I'd love to teach to others.
