Repairing Vinyl Trim


I need to repair/replace one side of vinyl wrap around one of my windows. The wrap is on top of a 2by. The question is, where can I go to get this type of product in small quantities? Or can I purchase it in small quantities? Can I get it at Home Depot/Lowes etc? If so, what is it called? Thanks!

Are you sure the wrap isn’t PVC coated aluminum? The aluminum comes in a 2’ x 50’ roll and the pieces for the wrap are custom bent on site. You’ll need access to a siding brake to make the repairs.

It could be what's called a "Lineal".
Google "Certainteed" - siding - vinyl - trim.
You'll probably have to look for a siding dist. house in your area -
I don't think I've ever seen them at a Big Box store.
Odds are: it's more likely, it's what "kwikfishron" stated -
PVC coated aluminum.
They're repairable - but a "Pain - ITB"!
If it is PVC coated aluminum - some of that is available at the Big Box stores.
