CertainTeed, a leading North American brand of building materials, is unveiling a stylish new WP4 Nickel Gap trim profile as part of the Restoration Millwork® cellular PVC trim collection. CertainTeed is known for providing high-quality products that can be tailored to any homeowner’s style. The WP4 Nickel Gap trim board allows for complete customization to maximize curb appeal.

The modern profile features reversible panels pre-cut with the WP4 groove on one side and a ¼-inch nickel gap on the other. This creates two design options on one board to perfectly accent any home style. Panels also include a TightLap™ design to provide a larger nailing area for easy installation and a seamless finish.

“WP4 and nickel gap boards are well known for their appealing styles, so we put them together to create a product that adds a fresh flexibility and long-lasting beauty to any project,” said Doug Mucher, senior marketing manager for CertainTeed Outdoor Living and Trim. “Fine millwork has always been a tool for expressing creativity, attention to detail and a commitment to quality. With Restoration Millwork, it’s even easier to create those distinctive finishing touches for a custom look.”

Manufactured in natural white, WP4 Nickel Gap trim can be painted to complement any exterior color. It is low maintenance and ultra-durable with UV resistance and a Class A flame spread classification. It can be cut, milled, shaped and routed like wood, but since it’s made from cellular PVC, it out-performs wood with no worries about rotting, warping, moisture or insects.

WP4 Board is the latest addition to the INhanced® Trim Line of decorative, high-performance components, including fascia trimboard, hidden flanges, built-in J-pockets, pre-assembled column wraps and one-piece corners that speed up installation – each with authentic-looking finishes to create a natural wood appearance for stunning curb appeal.

WP4 Nickel Gap board is now available nationwide and comes with a 25-year limited product warranty.
