Before the Job Begins
Palight Trimboard offers all the workability of wood, but with none of the drawbacks.
  • Does’t warp due to moisture – No searching through the stacks looking for a straight piece.
  • Comes in standard lumber sizes – No need to learn new math.
  • Rain? Snow? – No problem. Waterproof

Keep Your Job Flowing Smoothly
Split. Crack. Pop. Those are some sounds you won't hear using Palight Trimboard. But you’ll be quite familiar with the sound of a nail gun, the buzz of a saw, and the whir of a drill or router.
  • Sealed Edges & EverClean™ Protective Film. Standard.
  • Use standard tools – Your trusty carbide tipped woodworking tools will serve you well.
  • Uniformity – No twists, knots, or inconsistencies.
  • Standard fastening methods – Rout it. Drill it. Saw it. Nail it. Glue it.
  • Need to conform to a curve? Palight can be easily thermoformed in advance or on the job
  • Made white, stays white - Palight has a UV protected smooth finish that doesn’t require painting.
  • Want a top-notch finish, or need another color? Palight can easily be painted.
  • Just use standard 100% acrylic latex paint (more info).

After the Job is Done.
The punch list will be shorter, and the callbacks fewer.
  • Impervious to Insects - No insect damage, ever.
  • 30 Year Transferable Warranty* - That’s a lot better than the wood you’ve been using—and most other PVC Trimboard brands too. (more info)
