PVC trim handles tough exterior duty with no upkeep

Today, people want the beauty of wood without the high cost of maintenance that goes with it. That’s why they’re turning to cellular PVC products.

At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Marcus Ward, Northwest Territory Manager at The Tapco Group, reviewed some of the advantages of the Kleer line of cellular PVC trim that offers, sustainable, low-maintenance alternatives to wood trim and wood exterior products.

Ward said Kleer products make it easy to distinguish your home’s exterior with attention getting fascias, soffits and corners and other custom architectural details.

Kleer Trimboards do not require paint for protection or to retain their brilliant white color, can be color coordinateed with other home exterior elements by painting with 100% acrylic latex paint, Ward noted.

Kleer PVC Trimboards are used for for corners, fascia, soffits, rakes, casings, cornices and other applications, delivering the advantages of natural wood without the upkeep. The TruEDGE technology provides sharper, cleaner edges that resist dust and dirt, and a smooth finish that’s easier to clean than wood trim or PVC boards without sealed edges. Infused with UV inhibitors that provide long lasting protection over time, they are perfect for creating authentic accents around windows, doors and more.

Developed with a micro-structure density similar to white pine, Kleer Trimboards come in a range of thicknesses, widths and lengths to easily fit multiple applications. And since they don’t splinter, rot, delaminate or swell, they can be installed in direct contact with the ground, masonry or other potentially wet surfaces, Ward noted.
