Vinyl Cedar Shake Siding over Arch

marbleloveFebruary 24, 2009

I would like to put vinyl cedar shake siding over a front entry arch in my new construction home and my builder won't do it saying that the rubber j-channels which would need to be used would crack and warp and we would be dissatisfied. I don't understand why this arch is different than the arches over my windows. Does anyone agree/disagree or have a solution for how I can achieve this? We've discussed using real cedar and painting it to match the vinyl, but we would rather just have vinyl throughout. Appreciate greatly any comments to help.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

If the arches over the windows are the same radius and he's doing those, then (without pictures or more information) I don't see any difference.
