Usually, High Quality Contracting, Inc. does not write product reviews. However, we decided that doing so would help educate our customer base on why we work with some products and not others. Today we are going to review CertainTeed Restoration Millwork PVC Exterior Trim. A product we are very comfortable installing. We find it to be an excellent alternative to wood trim.
PVC Vinyl Trim
Made of PVC (vinyl), CertainTeed Restoration Millwork PVC Exterior Trim can be cut, routed, shaped, and milled with ordinary wood-working tools. The product forms beautiful designs. Restoration Millwork is also relatively simple to maintain.
Wood trim tends to rot over time. Even treated, the elements will eventually take root, and the trim will need upkeep and possible replacement. While working with the CertainTeed Restoration Millwork PVC Exterior Trim, we have found that the product does not rot, mold, absorb moisture, warp, or bow. It is practically maintenance-free. This is excellent news for homeowners who would rather not replace and repaint their trim every couple of years.
Restoration Millwork is available in several varieties of wood grain looks, including smooth and TrueTexture™ woodgrain finishes. The array makes matching the right trim style to your home a breeze.
Benefits Of Use
There are other benefits we have found are:
- “PVC exterior trim is self-extinguishing, which earns it a Class A (Class 1) Flame Spread Classification. ” as stated the CertainTeed Company.
