NEW Canvas Series Colors – Natural Amber, Driftwood and Copper

New - Natural Amber, Driftwood and Copper


Builders, distributors, and homeowners are rapidly rediscovering the warm appeal of wood-look porch ceilings, soffits, and accent walls. And, in response, VERSATEX Building Products continues to expand its Canvas Series palette of realistic colors and textures, all brought to life in maintenance-free PVC.

Now VERSATEX has introduced three new matte-finish Canvas Series products:
• Natural Amber (warm and light with a slight contrast and attractive grain)
• Driftwood (light, neutral tan with a deeper grain texture)
• Copper (saturated medium brown with a moderate woodgrain texture and a subtle contrast)

Natural Amber, Driftwood, and Copper join a Canvas Series range of options that includes Black Cherry, Kitami, Macore, Turner Oak, Walnut and Weathered Gray. All colors are available in current SKUs and sold in full unit or Smartpack quantities, with lead times and prices consistent with the rest of the Canvas Series line.

All nine variations feature weather-resistant exterior-grade laminates, permanently bonded to a premium PVC substrate, and all are available in four profiles:

• Easy-to-nail Stealth beadboard (1/2″ x 6″)
• WP4 (3/4″ x 5 7/16″)
• Crown moulding (9/16″ x 3 5/8″
• Bed mould (9/16″x 1 3/4″)

“Natural Amber, Driftwood, and Copper give you three more ways to make a distinctive statement while you minimize maintenance,” says VERSATEX Vice President for Sales Rick Kapres. “Like everything we make, they’re engineered for hassle-free installation and long-lasting beauty—even in coastal regions and other environments that destroy paints, stains, protective coatings, and the forest-grown products that depend on them.”

He adds that Canvas Series products are compatible with VZClip, an innovative hidden fastener from VERSATEX that not only speeds and simplifies installation, but also provides a significantly stronger connection between trim elements and the underlying structure.
