Demand drives two profile introductions
Versatex Building Products developed a shiplap profile and a reversible WP4 nominal 1- by 6-in. profile, with a nickel-gap option on the reverse, in response to contractor and distributor demand. The crisp shadow lines of shiplap and nickel-gap boards for siding, interior walls and ceilings are now attainable in maintenance-free PVC. All profiles are sold in 18-ft. lengths that can span up to 24 in. on center in ceiling applications, and are suitable for horizontal or vertical orientation. With the standard V-groove effect on one side, the WP4 nominal 1- by 6-in. profile features a nickel-gap option on the reverse side. The shiplap profiles—available in nominal 1 by 6 in. and 1 by 8 in.—have one leg at 5/8 in. and the other at ½ in for a ready-made 1/8 in. gap.
