Someone needs to offer a pre-shrink service so it doesn't shrink after it is installed. Maybe someone in the SouthWest can leave it in the sun for a year or so

It's what I bought also. Works fine.
Only problem is some shrinkage after a year or so.
I just cut another small piece to fill in the gap.

Yeah PVC isn't the best material for this, but I haven't seen anything else.

This would replace the rubber screw cover on the side trim and it's made from EPDM so it won't shrink. It's only $2.21/foot, I only need $660 worth. Maybe there's an alternative that costs less.
