trim options for fiber cement lap siding
 
Hi again, looking for trim materialoptions for the o/s corners and windows. The siding is fiber cement brd (Maxtile), 8" width. 20'x20' room to do. Expect the trim has to go up first, then the lap siding butts against the trim. Thanks

One option is Fiber Cement trim, which is difficult to work with.

Another option is PVC trim boards. There are many manufacturers and are available at most building supply centers.

PVC cuts and machines like wood, but doesn't absorb moisture and holds paint very well, provided it's painted properly.:whistling2:

Here's a few examples of fiber cement siding and Azek PVC trim boards.
