Exterior wood trim replacement????

House is stucco with wood trim all around the second story. Have some carpenter ants which are being treated and some pieces are rotted. Should I replace all wood trim with the PVC lumber like AZEK?
What shoudl that cost me per lf?

No one here has even seen a picture of what your trying to do and is not going to quote prices.
But if you could post some pictures I'm sure someone would be glad to make some suggestions.
If you go to a real siding supply store there going to have samples of all kind of composites and PVC profiles that could be used. Not cheap but once installed that's it for life.

Another Option. Slightly less costly than PVC and more stable (PVC expands & contracts with temperature): http://www.boralna.com/trim/trim.asp

With any pricing: Costs, supply, and availability vary by region. Check your local supply Lumber Yards for accurate pricing.
Remember to factor-in Sales Tax (if applicable) and delivery charges.
