PVC corner trim


I am planning on vinyl siding a garage and was curious what your thought were on using an pvc outside corner piece instead of a vinyl siding outside post?

Far more expensive to do it that way.
Only way I would do it would be to buy one made just for that, not make one up.
It's made in one piece and has a dado to fit the siding.

I would probably opt for a wider vinyl corner in white (if that is your trim color) If only the corners are PVC, you wont get much wow for your dollars.

The reason im asking is because the rake side of the garage has pretty much no overhang and if I use a vinyl outside piece it doesn't have anything to cover the top of it. Any suggestions?

If there's house wrap around the outside corner it's not going to matter.
What little bit of water will just get in will just run to the bottom.
If you were thinking of using 1 X vinyl lumber for an outside corner it's only 3/4" thick. The J molding will be 5/8's so it will stick out past it and water will get in behind it.

Is there a way to cap off the top of the outside vinyl corner post?
