Replacing Side Trim Boards & HD TUF Board
I have a two story house and the side trim runs for about 20 feet on each corner (estimate distance). the existing side trim is made up of two or more pieces, i.e., not a sigle 20 foot long board. The edge is miter cut (45 degrees). Time and water has cause some damage in localized sections of these trim boards. I have fixed some with exterior wood filler, but other sections appear to need the boards repaced. I am considering replacing only sections (perhaps 8 feet long sections). To do this I need to cut and remove the damaged sections. I assume these boards are just nailed to the corner studs/sheathing of the house. So I figure I can cut (use a large Dremal cutter) and pry off the damaged section. Any advice?
I am also looking/thinking about/at using the Home Deport handled: "TUF Board". This is "maintenance free composit plastic" which can be cut/worked the same as wood. Any adive/experience on this material?
