PVC Trim Enhancements Make Installation Easier


Cellular Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) trim has changed the way we view decorative trim on the outside of a building.  The ability to enhance the look in a low maintenance, paintable product has enabled building professionals and homeowners to elevate the appearance and value of their building.

Beadboard continues to provide a great alternative to wood and new profiles make it faster and easier to install and create more design possibilities for homeowners seeking show-stopping curb appeal without having to worry about future maintenance. Some of these enhancements improve the tongue and groove and fastener applications to provide a more seamless look to porch ceilings, skirting and deck surrounds.

When working with wood trim there is a great deal more work that takes place, in terms of finishing and installation, especially without the tongue and groove design.

Beadboard’s TightLap™  progressive notched shiplap edge design provides for a larger concealed nailing area and allows two adjacent panels to seamlessly overlap, providing better hold.  The reversible bead/channel repeat creates a smooth transition between panels.

Homeowners are utilizing outdoor living spaces more today than ever before and this trend will continue as people choose to stay in their current homes longer – even into retirement.
