Installing PVC Trim in a Coastal Environment
Lead carpenter Dan Booth has been renovating an old general store outbuilding that sits on the back of his property located in Nova Scotia, Canada. The project has centered around upgrading the space with modern materials for a low maintenance, good looking exterior. Part of these upgrades includes a new trim package. Because Nova Scotia is an area with a variety of extreme weather and is located on the coast experiencing low to high temperatures, wind, and a higher concentration of salt, Dan has chosen to use PVC on the exterior instead of traditional wood for its durability to last the conditions.
In this video series, Dan will demonstrate proper installation procedures for installing Versatex exterior PVC trim, including a how to joining a long run, how to get weathertight outside corners, and installing a historical window sill. Each episode covers a variety of tips and tricks to get the job done right, and efficiently, along the way.
