Perfect Exterior Home Finishes are Made Easy with New CertainTeed® Restoration Millwork® Fascia Trimboard

Virtually maintenance-free cellular PVC product gives builders more Freedom of Choice® in homes' exterior accessories

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – It's easy to create distinctive, custom looks for any style home with new CertainTeed® Restoration Millwork® Fascia Trimboard. Part of the INhanced™ Trim Line, the new cellular PVC product features a built in return leg that works with a wide range of soffit materials to offer building professionals even more Freedom of Choice® in exterior design.

"We believe choice is important, which is why we work diligently to give our customers a broad range of high-quality options in building products. The new Restoration Millwork Fascia Trimboard affords builders and homeowners another opportunity to customize their homes. The fascia works with all types of soffit materials including Restoration Millwork Beadboard Panels providing an authentic crafted look, or Invisivent® — the only vinyl soffit that provides more than 10 inches of net-free intake area," said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed Outdoor Living and Trim.

Available in a ready-to-install Natural White color, the fascia trimboard can be painted to complement exterior colors. It comes in TrueTexture™ woodgrain and smooth finishes that appear on the product's face as well as its return leg for a finished look.

The Restoration Millwork INhanced Trim Line is comprised of pre-engineered, decorative components that deliver extraordinary advantages from the inside out. Hidden flanges, built-in J-pockets, pre-assembled column wraps and one-piece corners enable easy installation, while authentically crafted finishes create an incredible natural wood appearance. The new fascia trimboard is a natural extension of this product line and will further the look of custom craftsmanship.

Like all Restoration Millwork products, the new INhanced Trim Line fascia board features a UV-resistant material, cuts and mills with traditional woodworking tools, and fastens with nails or screws. It has a Class A (Class 1) flame spread classification, meets ICC and CCMC code requirements and comes with a 25-year limited warranty.

In addition, Restoration Millwork is the first and only cellular PVC exterior trim to be covered by an independent life cycle assessment (LCA), providing third-party verification of the product’s sustainability from cradle to grave. Restoration Millwork has also achieved GreenCircle Certified, LLC certification for Recycled Content, enhancing the sustainable appeal of the product line.

"The INhanced Trim Line for our Restoration Millwork collection has been a hit among builders. Its detail-oriented look of custom craftsmanship enhances a home’s curb appeal, yet it is so easy to install. The new fascia board fits right into the mix with its appealing style and easy installation benefits," added Mucher.
