New CertainTeed® Restoration Millwork® J-Pocket Eases Installation of Corner Trim

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed is making installation much easier with the introduction of a J-Pocket trimboard with Cut-out in its Restoration Millwork® PVC line. The cut-out allows the trimboard to lie flush with the siding around windows and doors with built-in nail flanges, allowing for more perfect miter cuts at the corners.

“Before, contractors had to spend valuable jobsite time on window and door trim carpentry,” says Patti Pellock, senior marketing manager for CertainTeed Restoration Millwork. “Now there is no worrying about imprecise and expensive do-overs. The new J-Pocket with Cut-out creates an instant, perfect and flat installation.”

The Restoration Millwork J-Pocket with Cut-out is available in a 4-inch width with nominal 5/4-inch thickness with either Smooth or TrueTexture™ woodgrain. It joins the existing standard J-Pocket trimboard line, which includes smooth or woodgrain finishes in 4- and 6-inch widths. J-Pocket trimboards come with FinishedEdge™, a smooth finish created by a proprietary heat-sealing process that prevents dirt from collecting on the surface.

Made from cellular polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the Restoration Millwork full line of trim, beadboard and accessories is engineered to look, feel and work like top-grade lumber. Unlike wood, however, it is made with a long-lasting, low-maintenance material that is resistant to rotting, warping, moisture and insects. Offered in Natural White finish, Restoration Millwork can also be painted to complement exterior colors. It can be cut using ordinary woodworking tools and fastened with nails or screws.

In addition, Restoration Millwork complements all siding materials — including vinyl, fiber cement, wood, stucco and brick — and is ideal for single- and multi-family housing, light commercial developments and remodeling projects. It is highly resistant to yellowing caused by UV rays, resists freezing during winter months, features a Class A (Class 1) flame spread classification and is backed by a 25-year limited warranty.
