Installing Plastic Molding and Trim on Your Home

Molding and trim made from plastic can be used both inside and outside your home and have many advantages over wood molding. Plastic moldings and trim can be molded into intricate shapes and bent to fit curves that would be impossible with wood. They can be designed to resemble any material, including the grain of wood.

Plastic molding and trim are impervious to moisture, making them resistant to termites, rot, mold, warping, cracking, and splintering. Plastic molding can be cut using the same tools as wood and don’t require sanding. In addition, plastic molding can be made from recycled plastic materials, making them eco-friendly as well.

  1. Hi:
    I want to install 3 1/2 x 3/4″ PVC trim to my windows. I have stucco walls which are very hard to nail or screw into. Can I glue the trim to the stucco and will it hold up?


  2. I am having my house restuccoed and was wondering if I could use this around a big front metal window with no trim that does not have room for white shutters that will be at the other windows. The trim has been painted but not restuccoed yet. Does this product come in different widths. And how would you go about installing it on stucco that I already have there. The house will not be sandblasted since the stucco was never painted. Thanks, Sue Pacolt

  3. One thing to point out is that plastics expand and contract quite a bit and installers too often seem to ignore this and after installing nail without glue and proper concern for this.
