WOODBRIDGE, Ontario--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Royal® Building Products, a Westlake company, continues its commitment to quality and innovation in the exterior building products category with the introduction of ZuriTM Grooved Boards at the 2017 International Builders’ Show. Celect® Cellular Composite Siding by Royal®, the premier siding and trim solution that is revolutionizing the lap siding category, will also be on display.
Other announcements include the reveal of the 2017 Exterior Color Palette of the Year as well as the introduction of bold new vinyl siding colors into the Royal Building Products and Exterior Portfolio® product lines.
ZuriTM Grooved Boards are now available as a part of the Zuri Premium Decking by Royal® product line. The newly engineered groove boards offer a truly hidden fastener application with pre-threaded screws for fast installation. The groove boards also provide two options for a finished look with tighter seams between the boards – a 3/32” spacing or a 3/16” gap. Available in a nominal 5/4” x 5-1/2” wide board in 12’, 16’ and 20’ lengths. Zuri trimboards are also available grooved.
Zuri Premium Decking combines the natural beauty of exotic hardwood with the unsurpassed durability and exceptionally low maintenance requirements of PVC to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor living environment for the home. All of the Zuri products, including Zuri Grooved Boards, are available in Chestnut, Walnut, Pecan, Brazilia and Weathered Gray, and carry a no-fade protection.
Celect® Cellular Composite Siding replicates the beauty and aesthetics of wood while remaining low maintenance and durable on the home for a lifetime. All of Celect’s profiles – 4" and 7” Clapboard, 8" Board & Batten and 7” Shake – are available in 15 fade-resistant colors and feature Royal’s patented interlocking seam design, which enhances the curb appeal of any home. For the professional, the product is lightweight and easy to install without the need for special tools.
Royal will introduce its New Construction Window Surround as a part of its Conceal Trim System at IBS 2017. An often overlooked problem when butting trim up to a new construction window is the nailing flange. Royal’s New Construction Window Surround’s unique profile allows for a perfect fit around the window while eliminating the rocking typically seen with standard trim boards. It is offered in both 5/4” x 4” and 5/4” x 6” reveals with 1” deep pockets.
Additional new Royal trim and mouldings products include:
- 6/4” and 8/4” trimboards and sheet stock
- An innovative 8-7/16” Column Base that can be used as a one-piece base moulding or to decorate columns
- The Conceal Watertable, which allows for a simpler transition from trimboard to siding
- The entire Conceal product line will now carry a 1” pocket to be able to accept any traditional siding product
