I'm trying to replace missing rake moulding on my old Tudor. I can't find this stuff anywhere. It's 5 1/2'' I did find some made of synthetic materials, but it's $66 dollars for 12 feet, and I have to have it shipped here.
I found this white vinyl trim plank, and it would fit perfect. (5.5 inches)
I would need to run it on my table saw to cut the bevels into each edge. I'm thinking this is the way I'm going to go. The moulding that needs replaced is all on the second and third floor so that profile of the original moulding isn't really even visible from that high?
Another store has primed pine finger-jointed crown mould 5 1/4' wide with a similar profile as the original moulding for 22$. Would you use pine on an exterior application like this? This would be the best option if pine will hold up. I can prime, and paint it really thoroughly.
What would you do?
Any information is appreciated!!
