Boral TruExterior™ Trim – Product Application Information
Applications & Workability
TruExterior Trim offers real workability that exceeds that of exterior wood trim. It also maintains a high level of dimensional stability during periods of temperature and moisture change*. As a low-maintenance product, not only does TruExterior Trim offer additional freedom, but it also resists moisture related issues that typically plague exterior wood trim such as splitting, cupping, and checking and is virtually free from rot and termite attacks.*
Designed to be used in non-load bearing applications, TruExterior Trim is approved for ground contact, which makes it ideal for exterior trim applications such as:
- Batten Strips
- Frieze Boards
- Rake Boards
- Garage Door Casings
- Window Surrounds
- Door Trim
- Other decorative exterior trim applications**
TruExterior Trim is reversible with a genuine wood grain on one side and a smooth face on the other side, offering you true versatility for any project. It can be installed with confidence using standard woodworking tools and methods.
Unlike most other man-made products, there is no need for special saw blades, adhesives or cumbersome installation considerations either to limit movement or prevent moisture related issues.
Additionally, TruExterior Trim easily accepts exterior grade paint, of any color, for a wide variety of design options.
