CARY, NC -- For 2014, the cellular PVC Ply Gem Trim and Mouldings line is now available nationwide to builders and contractors through an expanded distribution network. Ply Gem Trim and Mouldings is offered in multiple states to lumber yards and retailers serving the residential home building market, as well as to contractors through siding specialists.
"With extensive distribution networks and proven service reputation, we look forward to expanding the Trim and Mouldings line through key supply channel partners," said Jerry Blais, vice president, marketing, Ply Gem siding group.
Originally launched in 2013, cellular PVC trim and mouldings are a low-maintenance alternative to traditional wood trim, designed to work well with nearly any siding type. As a leading manufacturer of nearly every product for the outside of the home, the product line complements Ply Gem's already extensive lineup of more than 20 exterior home product categories, including siding, windows, patio doors, stone veneer, fence, rail, rainware, designer accents, accessories and more. The Trim and Mouldings product category further aligns Ply Gem's value proposition of offering customers a holistic exterior solution from a single manufacturer through The Designed Exterior.
Ply Gem Trim is available in smooth or an authentic woodgrain finish, but unlike wood and treated wood, the products are made from cellular PVC and absorb no moisture. The trim and mouldings are also resistant to dirt, rotting, cracking or warping, and hold paint better than wood, especially in damp climates and extreme temperatures. Ply Gem Trim and Mouldings are manufactured without cellulose, making them resistant to insects, termites and other pests.
To assist builders and contractors with creating architectural appeal in residential home exteriors, through a comprehensive design guide, Ply Gem provides recommendations on how to use trim boards, corners, post wraps and accents found on seven popular home styles - Craftsman, French Country, Prairie, Tuscan, Folk Victorian, Shingle, and Georgian. The Ply Gem Trim and Mouldings line complements The Designed Exterior by Ply Gem, a complete exterior home design solution, combining different product styles, colors and textures for a customizable, low maintenance, architectural exterior.
Designed with simple installation in mind, Ply Gem Trim and Mouldings are easier to install for builders and contractors compared to other trim options, since the cut edges do not need to be sealed or caulked, and include pre-notched profiles for installation with vinyl siding. They are also packaged in easy to handle rugged PlyPaks™ to keep the product clean from the warehouse to installation.
