Vinyl Brick Molding

Vinyl Brick Molding

Vinyl brick molding –  trim molding applied to the exterior frames of windows and doors made from polyvinyl chloride, a synthetic plastic polymer commonly referred to as PVC .  This type brick molding has the same shape as traditional wood brick molding but is highly resistant to decay and insects.  It can be machined and fastened using the same methods as wood brick molding.

    Tony,
    What do recommend for caulk of pvc trim in the north, Cold, snow, and the summer high heat with high humidity. Wisconsin. Do you recommend thermal plastic caulking for PVC trim on the exterior of the home?

    So do you have a specific make and type by a manufacture that you would recommend

    I am looking for “brick molding” in fiberglass. To be clear it is the trim that goes on the edge of an exterior door covering the gap between the door frame and the stucco wall. I need to have it match the wood stain that came on my fiberglass door.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    Richard

      Richard,
      I am unaware of any brick molding manufactured in fiberglass. To my knowledge your options are going to be wood or PVC. I assume the reason you are looking an alternative to wood is for a low maintenance product that won’t rot. PVC brick molding is certainly maintenance free but it will not take stain. Perhaps you could apply(to vinyl brick molding) a base coat of flat paint in a tan color and then use a faux staining technique to achieve a close match to your door. Another possible option is locating mahogany brick molding. High end mahogany entrance doors are trimmed in mahogany brick molding. It may be possible to stain or finish Mahogany to match your door and it is somewhat more rot resistant than white pine or spruce brick molding.
