With consistent density, color, and square edges, all of our PVC products provide a uniform, architectural, aesthetic.

WHAT ABOUT FINISHING PVC?

Architectural Grade PVC products require painting. For best results, prime the product thoroughly to achieve a smooth, consistent, paint-ready surface. The carved areas may require additional prime coats. Once priming is finished, paint the product with a good quality, vinyl safe 100% acrylic latex paint. If painting the product a dark color, colors that have an LVR rating of 54 or lower, use paints with heat reflective characteristics specifically formulated for use on vinyl or PVC products. For dark colors, consultation with your local paint company is highly recommended.

  • Options for Dark Colors Consult AquaSur Tech OEM or Blue River Coatings on "heat reflective" paints in applications where the paint color has an LRV value less than 55 units. When using paints, the liability of performance rests with the paint manufacturer. "Heat reflective" paints with an LRV between 45 and 55 have proven successful in the field.
  • Tips on Painting: To obtain adequate paint adhesion, be sure the surface of the PVC millwork product is clean, dry and free of dirt, loose or peeling paint, mildew, chalk, grease and any other surface contaminants before applying paint. Use a mild detergent(Spic 'n Span®) and water or denatured alcohol for cleaning.
  • Paint can take up to 30 days to fully cure depending on outside temperatures and humidity conditions.
  • Follow the paint manufacturer's surface preparation and application recommendations.
  • Before painting, remove any mold or mildew using a mixture of three parts water and two parts bleach.
  • If you paint PVC a dark color, you must first remove it before applying a lighter color paint with an LRV of 55 units or greater.
  • Paint life is longer when applied to PVC versus wood due to the absence of moisture in our trim.
  • Cleaning PVC will not support mold and mildew growth. (ASTM G-21-96)
  • If products get dirty, clean with products like Soft Scrub® with Bleach, Spic 'n Span®, Clorox® Regular Bleach, Clorox® CleanUp®, Clorox® Outdoor Bleach Cleaner, OxiClean™, or Corte Clean. Use a nylon brush for stubborn stains. Use 320 grit sand paper to reduce cell size on cut edges of boards.
  • Test any cleaner on an inconspicuous area before use. Storage and Handling.
  • Store PVC on a flat level surface as it has a tendency to conform to the surface on which it is stored.
  • Handle PVC as you would a premium lumber to avoid damage.
  • Keep PVC free of dirt and debris. Clean after installation as described above.
  • Do not store or place on asphalt or in areas prone to excessive heat build-up.
  • Moisture: PVC can be installed at or below grade, as it does not absorb moisture. PVC is perfect for use in moisture-prone applications such as garage door jambs, column wraps, ground contact, masonry contact, hot tub surrounds, and at rooflines.
