When residential builders who install large-scale columns are looking for a strong exterior wrap, VERSATEX has them covered. Now there's a new, easy way to clad rough-sawn posts in attractive, weather-tight PVC.

Versatex Building Products, LLC, has just introduced a nominal 1 x 12 x 12 version of the acclaimed VERSAWRAP column system. With actual outside dimensions of 11 1/4 x 11 1/4” and a 3/4” wall thickness, the new component comes in 12’ lengths.

The 12 x 12 wrap provides one-piece, pre-cut cladding with a secure, full-length, friction-fit closure. It’s made of the same premium, matte-finished cellular PVC as all VERSATEX exterior trim products. The VERSAWRAP range already includes 4 x 4, 6 x 6, 8 x 8 and custom 10 x10 sizes in 8’ 6” and 10’ lengths.

“The contracting community was quick to adopt VERSAWRAP when we introduced it in 2011,” VERSATEX Vice President of Sales Rick Kapres said today. “Since then, builders keep discovering new ways of using it to add curb appeal and cut maintenance. They’ve asked for larger sizes, and now we're happy to oblige.”

With VERSAWRAP, he said, a builder can avoid labor-intensive mitering, alignment and fastening in the field. “Instead of painfully assembling four separate boards, you just add glue, wrap the post, wait an hour, peel off the protective tape, and walk away. It’s that simple.”

Mr. Kapres said contractors, distributors and lumberyard operators can learn more about new 12 x 12 VERSAWRAP from their regional VERSATEX representatives, or by contacting him at 724-857-1111 or
