Further expanding the industry’s widest selection of PVC tongue-and-groove (T&G) products, VERSATEX Trimboard launches a new WP4 profile at this year’s NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
Featuring an authentic V-groove center match, the 3/4-inch x 5 7/16-inch profile meets the needs of builders and architects seeking a durable, workable replacement for the conventional pine WP4.
The WP4’s versatility has made it the traditional solution for wainscoting, soffits and porch ceilings. Today’s builders increasingly use it in such applications as interior and exterior paneling, fencing, porch skirting, hot tub enclosures and shed doors.
The VERSATEX WP4 is sold in 18-foot lengths, ideal for remodeling projects as well as new construction. Installation requires only ordinary carpentry skills, tools and fasteners. Like all VERSATEX PVC products, the new profile is impervious to moisture and insect damage. It combines traditional curb appeal with long service life and low maintenance.
“Builders and contractors from Florida to New England have worked with the standard WP4 for decades, but they understand that today's home owners want the kind of easy care and weather resistance that only PVC can give them,” says VERSATEX Vice President of Sales Rick Kapres.
“We listened when they told us about the moisture problems they run into with old-style T&G. Then we worked hard to develop a durable, workable, good-looking version in PVC. That’s what we’ll be rolling out in Las Vegas, and it will be in the stores right after the show.”
