Pittsburgh-based Versatex Building Products has introduced a new collection of cellular PVC shiplap and nickel-gap boards for siding, interior walls, and ceilings.
“We developed these two new profiles in response to demand from contractors and distributors across the country,” says Versatex vice president of sales Rick Kapres. “Once again, their perspective has helped us in responding to a hot design trend among homeowners and architects.”
The shiplap profiles are available in 1-inch-by-6-inch and 1-inch-by-8-inch psizes with one leg at 5/8 inches and the other at a 1/2 inch for a ready-made 1/8-inch gap.
Moreover, the company says the reversible WP4 nominal 1-inch-by-6-inch profile retains the industry-standard V-groove effect on one side but now features a nickel-gap option on the reverse.
“Both shiplap and nickel-gap styles have been gaining major traction for new construction as well as remodeling projects,” Kapres says, adding that both profiles have long been associated with rustic and cottage-style designs but have been gaining traction among design-conscious consumers.
All of the company’s profiles are sold in 18-foot lengths that can span up to 24 inches on center in ceiling applications. The company says they are equally suitable for horizontal and vertical orientation on walls.
