Exterior door trim pediment material?


I'm replacing some existing exterior door trim (pediment and pilasters) due to door replacement and some other work; I believe they are made of urethane. I see both vinyl and urethane products available as replacements. Is one type preferred? The existing has held up well (16 years) but didn't know if it was easier to screw into the vinyl vs. urethane when hanging a screen door, doorbell button etc...? See picture attached.

TIA,
Bob

The screen door would be attached to the wooden door frame. Neither material, plastic or urethane will hold the weight of the door.

Hello Bob22,
I'm in the process of home improvement and I would like to know where did you purchase the exterior door trim (Pilaster & Pediment) from? (Home Depot, Lowe's or Custom Made)? I been surfing the web with no luck. I like your attached picture of your door.
Thank you

Thanks; the outlet box has a clear plastic cover on it; picture is a bit deceiving.

Really nice job Bob.

I just wanted to throw a quick thanks for what those door parts are called,
Pediments and Pilasters !

I never knew what they were called, and have been searching the web for their name so I can now search for them and replace my ugly rotted one over my front door.

Thanks
