whitest white synthetic trim board material

dsommerlApril 26, 2010

I am reskinning an old cedar deck--attached to a white frame house. My intent is to use Ipe as the decking and trim everything else in white (skirt boards--lattice--railing system etc)

The house paint is a bright white and I'm having difficulty finding a matching white for the trim. I don't want to have to paint the trim to match---as this obviously defeats the my low maintenace objective.

So far--Azek has too much yellow in it's white color. Likewise--most of the railing systems aren't a good match to my house siding white color.

Who makes the whitest white synthetic trim?

aside from Azek and Certanteed (also too yellow)--what other mfg's trim should I look at?

thanks all

bumping this up

my situation is that I have a bright white painted wood sided house and I'm looking for the brightest white synthetic trim board brand--so far, Azek and Certainteed have too much yellow in their white trim

thanks for any input

I just trimmed out the porch with stuff I found at L0wes - though we tried to match colors, it does seem like the board over the stairs is whiter than the others. Tried 2 different boards to left of stairs, didn't see difference when laid on the ground but once they were up
I could still see joint where grayish one met white one.

Sorry, gotta take daytime pic

Was just at lumberyard and the Kleer looked pretty white. Have you looked at anything except Azek IRL?

I never did my project---but am going to do it now

Again--am in pursuit of the whitest white synthetic trim board.

Feedback appreciated

After a few seasons outdoors the whitest white won't be white anymore, you are overthinking this.

A few seasons may even be a stretch.
