Default Caulking for j channel?

It's been caulked before and the ho wants it caulked since the old caulk opened up and it's a new front door where the brick mould was previously caulked to the j channel so it needs to be cleaned up.

If no one has a recommendation on this I'm going to use big stretch which has an impressive display at the paint store: 2 pieces of trim with big stretch spanning a 1 inch gap. You can't pull it apart.

This brick moulding was fresh painted and is under a large protective roof. I hate doing this but there's no other way to make it look better.

I could argue it may prevent moisture from wicking in through the side of the brick mould and causing premature paint failure. Unfortunately, this could cause some contention between the carpenter and the painter. Not trying to make your job harder. Open for suggestions.

Big stretch is good. Another option would maybe be to use a textured caulk that looks like the brick mortar so it doesn't look so much like its caulked. BM has some, Mooreflex I think


Edit: just realized you were meaning vinyl (j channel?)
Thinking brick mold.

Yes. It's brick mould next to vinyl j channel, I think. Could use the big stretch again but Probably not the concrete caulk. Would just lead to more un advisable procedures ha ha
