From our installation guide: Use standard wood working drills and routers. Care should be taken to avoid frictional heat build-up. Periodic removal of shaving from the drill hole may be necessary. Carbide tipped router bits are recommended
No. It is solid.
I think they are something like $23 a board. Totally worth it. Easy to cut with a table saw or miter saw (but it makes a mess!), takes Behr paint well, and goes up super-easy with a nail gun.
Our product only comes in white. If you chose to paint Acrylic or urethane based latex exterior or interior paints are recommended. Follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations for use and compatibility. General brands such as Sherwin Williams, Glide, etc. are all suitable. Avoid painting dark colors. In case of painting darker colors (LRV of 54 or lower), use vinyl-safe paints specially custom made or mixed for vinyl
Dear Jimmy: Cellular PVC is too soft for structural applications, so cellular PVC manufacturers typically do not publish 'compressive strength' numbers. Cellular PVC should never be used in any load bearing application. I hope this is helpful, Mark
Ray, Screws and plugs are not necessary. I assume you are installing this against 2X framing. If so, just use premium construction adhesive liberally and your nailer using 18 guage 1 1/2" nails. Then go back and hit the nail depressions with premium latex exterior caulk making sure not to get any on the finish surface (use a wet cloth or solvent after the caulk has set. You'll be fine. It only has to hold up itself - it has no lateral or structural strength anyway. Good Luck!
Dear Dot: Yes, but you will need to build a wood frame for the door and hinges. Cellular PVC does not have enough structural strength. I hope this is helpful, Mark
Dear Dan: Cellular PVC trim can be used in a shower, but cellular PVC is fairly soft so it is not a good choice as a 'board' to use as the interior surface of a shower. I hope this is helpful, Mark
