Used to trim out windows, doors, fascia and soffit, it is very resistant to rot, but will require some maintenance through painting and caulking.
The downside to redwood in our market today, is the large amount of sap wood in the product. It becomes more and more difficult to get the true heartwood, that gave the product it's reputation as one the the greatest rot resistant choices.
The product is a little harder to handle then wood. It is much heavier and can require special tools to cut.
The end result is a good one. Just apply latex paint and the product will perform well for many years to come.
The product comes in 16' lengths in all of the normal trim widths you would expect. It's easy to carry and cuts just like a wood product.
The product can be painted with a latex paint and performs very well under our regions weather patterns.
The product comes prefinished white, but can be painted with a special PVC paint.
The product does perform well in our market, but has the reputation for a lot of mom\movement once installed. The PVC will expand and contract with temperature change.
