VERSATEX Exterior Trim Demo at 2019 IBS Show Village

April 27, 2019

Premade corners that hide siding edges and a hinged column wrap highlight this trim package

Before you can cover a wall with siding, you need to trim the edges—beginning with the long vertical pieces, like inside and outside corners. For thick cladding, you can install a 2x2 and then rip down an exterior corner to fit over it.

On the demo house, we used 5/4-inch stock on the inside corners, and

With the tall verticals in place, the long horizontals can slip between: a deck fascia and skirt boards for the siding. The skirt boards have a bump out tab at the top to bump out the bottom course of siding. 

 

Door trim features a built-up head casing

With trim installed below the door, side casings can sit on top and frame the opening. The side casings also have a stealth pocket for siding.

He matches the reveal at the top of the jamb with the reveal he formed at the bottom. A one-piece head casing is installed on top. Screw holes are filled with matching plugs.

 

Post wrap comes extra-wide with three hinge-joints

The final piece of the puzzle is wrapping the post. The VERSATEX system is a single hinged piece of trim.

After spreading adhesive in each hinge and the post is wrapped, and the wrap is snapped into place. A base also wraps and snaps in place. Trim kits are included for the top, base, and bottom.
