Wood vs. PVC Trim
Hi- I’m having carpentry repair done on my 1935 Cape. The wood trim on the dormers and windows is deteriorating. I’ve signed on with a carpenter. He’s recommending using PVC (I think that’s what he said) instead of wood since it will “last forever”. I’m having second thoughts, wondering about production of this and thinking that perhaps I should ask him to use wood, despite the chance it could deteriorate again. I will be painting the house afterwards. Any feedback appreciated.
