PITTSBURGH, Aug. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Designed to bring the warmth and contrast of natural wood to the ceilings of covered decks, porches and verandas, the original Canvas Series T&G won immediate acceptance for new construction and renovation after its introduction last year. Now Versatex has expanded the range of options with two innovative profiles in matching, colorfast woodgrain finishes.

"We added the new Canvas Series profiles — a 1/2 x 6 tongue-and-groove beadboard and a bed mould — to the Canvas Series in response to overwhelming requests from contractors and builders who desire a different look, compared to the WP4 we currently offer," says Versatex spokesman Rick Kapres.

Available in textures and colors that replicate the beauty of black cherry, walnut or tropical macore — as well as a sunny amber tone — all Canvas Series components feature the easy workability, stability and weather-resistance of Versatex premium PVC exterior trim.

Versatex supplies the Canvas Series T&G stealth beadboard in 18' lengths, and the bed mould in 16' lengths. Both are sold through Versatex distribution and dealer partners.

Mr. Kapres explains that the new profiles were conceived in response to a flood of requests for a more traditional, beaded profile and a smaller finish moulding for covering joints between ceiling boards and walls. "This is only the beginning," he says. "Our conversations with contractors, designers, architects and distributors constantly spark ideas for new profiles and colors.

"More and more homeowners are looking for that extra coziness and personality that the look of hardwood can provide. Now there's a permanent, durable answer for situations where severe conditions like coastal humidity and salt spray take their toll on natural wood."
