Vinyl trim & cedar shakes?


Hi,

Slowly working on fixing up my cottage. Besides aesthetics, are there reasons not to mix vinyl (ie window casing trim, outside corner post, fascia, soffit) and real cedar shingles? I love wood, but have limited budget. Not interested in doing all vinyl siding. Thanks for the help. It's appreciated

I suppose you could but you sprung for the good siding why not the corners and windows? Vinyl will only save you $10 per corner and look just wrong IMO.

Vinyl soffit is ok.
