2016 Product News: MiraTEC® Expands Composite Trim Line

First to Offer 1¼-Inch Thick Composite Trim for Premium Siding

CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bigger is better. This rings true for the premium segment of the siding
and trim category, where today’s luxury trim products are thicker. To
meet the demands of thick siding applications where a deep reveal is
needed, MiraTEC® Treated Exterior Composite trim launched a
new 1¼-inch option.

“We know builders using luxury siding rely on thicker exterior trim
products, so we’re confident our new 1¼-inch composite trim is the best
solution in both performance and value,” said Peggie Bolan, Vice
President and General Manager, Building Products for JELD-WEN, the
manufacturer of MiraTEC trim.

On display at the 2016 International Builders’ Show (IBS), the new
1¼-inch option from MiraTEC is one solid piece of trim, unlike other
products that are laminated to reach this thickness. MiraTEC was created
to overcome all of the challenges inherent to exterior trim.

Also on display at IBS was a close-up of a new MiraTEC siding product
that the new 1¼-inch exterior trim will complement. The new siding is
anticipated to be available in the second half of 2016.

THE TEC™ Competitive Advantage

Available in a wide variety of sizes for commercial and residential
projects, MiraTEC Treated Exterior Composite trim is an engineered wood
trim that offers architects, contractors, builders and specifiers high
performance at a value. Unlike other trim products, it resists moisture,
rot, termites, warping, splitting and cracking, and is easy to handle,
machine, cut and nail. MiraTEC trim is backed by a 50-year limited
warranty* and is a better value than fiber cement or PVC trim.

In addition to the new 1¼-inch thickness MiraTEC Treated Exterior
Composite trim is also available in ¾-inch, 1-inch, and ⅝-inch
thicknesses, widths from 2-16” and in 16’ lengths.
