    Default Garage Construction

    I have a question about trimming out a garage door. What is the best material to trim out the exterior of a new garage door? I know there is the fypon material you can buy, but I just want some simple trim work done that I can do, but should I buy cedar, the new PVC they have, or? What is recommended? I just want to trim it out with 1x6 around the door, maybe a little something across the header trim and a keystone. It will be white or painted white to match the trim.

    You can certainly use cedar, a rot and insect resistant wood, just get it in full lengths.

    Or you can go with some composite trim, rot and resistant as well.

    Both will have to be cut to size and fastened. Then caulk around.

    I used cedar. Looks nice, won't rot, costs about 1/4 of man made.
    Waste not, want not.
    Use it up. Wear it out. Make it due, or due without.
