I am looking to replace a triangular vent (about 64" wide and 28" high, steep roof) that is at least 25' from the nearest eye... and I suppose anything that is white will look like wood.

I found a pre-made unit on the web made out of Fypon. Any opinions on this material? I assume it will not rot, chip or peel... but it should at least resemble wood.

Good material. Can be pricey, but it's well made and the molded details are pretty good.

Thanks, I already decided without ever seeing it. I have seen plastic woods, Lowes and HD carry some trim that is plastic (whatever) and it has a wood grain appearance. The application I have is at the peak of a two story house, triangular louvers. Five feet wide with a 8/12 rise. I'd like this to not need future painting as it is getting beyond my age to get to the top of my 32' ladder. As for price, about $150 with tax and delivery to my home. I suppose one could make one from about $50 worth of wood, but assembling on the ground it would be very heavy to lift up there. I also understand the Fypon is relatively light weight.
