I just installed a new bay window in my home.

I would like to trim the exterior with LP Smartside trim. It's basically 1"thick plywood with some kind of coating on the front (cement?) and is available in standard lumber widths.

The reason I would like to use this product is for ease of ripping and machinability.

All of the raw edges will be hidden or butted against another peice of trim, the window, or existing stucco. I would, however, like to finish these exposed edges prior to install. Any suggestions?

I have considered Miratec, however:

The reason I would rather not use it is that eventually I would like to build a small deck on the front of my house, which the bay would hang over, and I am worried about the Miratec getting dinged and beat up.

The Smart Trim seems like it would be able to withstand a bit more abuse, making it a better choice in my mind.

Am I correct in my assumption about durability or over-thinking the situation?
