I have a 1920 Dutch colonial. The previous owner installed vinyl siding on the home. But didn't install it over the original moulding and trimwork, which I appreciate. My question is that because the vinyl siding has a much thicker profile, especially the j channels, The original moulding appears to be inset next to the siding.
The moulding needs paint or replacement, and I'm trying to decide how best to do this in keeping with the character of the house. One thought I have is placing new exterior trim boards over the existing ones, where it makes sense, so that the moulding is a more appropriate profile next to the siding, that is, sticking out or even with the siding.
Just looking for any advice on possible ways to approach the restoration of the trimwork.
