Corner Boards

Corner boards are the vertical boards at the exterior corners of your home that are both decorative and function as an anchor for siding. Corner boards are generally made of wood or vinyl material.

Corner Boards

Like other exterior trim, corner boards can deteriorate more quickly than indoor trim because they are exposed to the heat, cold, wind, rain and snow. Corner boards that aren't maintained properly can allow water to seep behind the adjacent siding and on into the inside of your house. Water inside the walls can lead to mold and mildew problems.

Corner boards should be large enough to cover the edges of the siding on both sides, helping to seal them from the weather. The inspector will also look to make sure that the corner boards are solid and secure and that the joints between the boards and the siding are properly caulked or otherwise sealed.
