SCRANTON, Pa., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AZEK Building Products today announced that Architectural Products Magazine has named its AZEK® Universal Skirt Board in 10-inch width as a "Top 50 Product of 2012". The product, part of the AZEK Trim product line, was selected as a Top 50 product based on reader inquiries during 2012 in a response to advertising and editorial.
Contractors find the innovative skirt board provides the perfect transition between the siding and trim, as well as assists with water management efforts. The10-inch wide profile allows more design flexibility and fits nicely into historic architectural styles that utilize wider trim. It is also an attractive alternative to a water table.
With no need for starter strips, AZEK's two-piece Universal Skirt Board saves time, labor and costs. It includes a reversible trimboard (which can be used as Traditional smooth or Frontier texture) that is routed to accept a proprietary and secure universal siding interface. It is "universal" in that it works with fiber cement siding, vinyl siding, cedar shingles or wood. A built-in drip edge helps channel water away from the foundation.
In addition to the 5/4 X 10 profile, the AZEK Universal Skirt Board is also available in 5/4 X 6 and 5/4 x 8 in—all in 18 ft. lengths, with a 1 ½ inch nailing flange and ¼ inch drip edge overhang. Like all AZEK Trim products, AZEK Universal Skirt Board is designed to last beautifully, is impervious to moisture and insects, and is covered by a 25-year Limited Warranty.
