Product Description

 

 

BEAUTY OF WOOD. DURABILITY OF PVC.

The VERSATEX Canvas Series has been developed to add contrast to your porch ceilings and interior trim projects.

This innovation combines an exterior grade laminate featuring warm woodgrain finishes with long-lasting,

maintenance-free VERSATEX profiles. Through the Canvas Series, VERSATEX delivers the look of rich hardwoods

without knots and without labor-intensive re-staining requirements.

 

1. All Canvas Series products are to be handled like you would a stained piece of mahogany, walnut or any other premium wood and not like dimensional lumber. Keep the product on a skid and covered until time of installation. The faux stained pieces should never be stored on the ground, on asphalt, or on any rough surface face down. Boards should be removed from skids by lifting at both ends when possible—friction between laminate and bare board may cause minor marking. See cleaning tips for removal method.

2. Cut the WP4 to length, measure the depth of the porch front to back at the end where you will start installing the WP4. Subtract 1/2” from this measurement to account for the 1/4” gap you want to leave around the perimeter of the ceiling to allow for any expansion and contraction. A 4” Crown moulding will eventually cover this small gap.

3. Calculate how many boards it will take to cover the ceiling. Divide the width of the porch ceiling by the finished width of the WP4 to get the number of whole boards needed to cover the ceiling. If the last board is less than 2”, trim down the first and last board to create equally spaced “V” groove boards.

4. If necessary, trim the first board to width cutting off the groove side of the WP4, leaving the tongue edge for nailing

6. All WP4 boards, including the first one, should be nailed every 16” on center through the tongue. Position the pneumatic gun at the back edge of the board’s tongue, angle it away from the tongue and to one side. This will keep the nail from pulling out and blocking the tongue when you fit the groove of the next board over it. Slide the groove of the next board into the tongue of the previous board. If necessary, tap it tightly in place with a hammer and woodblock.

7. For runs longer than 18’, cut a bevel or shiplap joint into the end of the WP4. Leave a 1/8” gap when installing WP4 at temperatures below 40°F. Consider a T-Mould, faux beam, or coffered ceiling as a means of hiding the butt ends of the WP4.

8. Finish installing WP4 over the ceiling. If necessary, trim the final board from the tongue side. Install 4” Crown moulding around the perimeter of the ceiling, making sure the moulding covers the 1/4” perimeter gap.

9. Use matching end cut coating applicator for cut board edges and wax stick nail hole filler to cover exposed fastener holes.

 

* NOTE: ADHESIVES AND ACETONE CAN DAMAGE THE APPEARANCE OF CANVAS SERIES PRODUCTS! DO NOT USE FOR INSTALLATION. • All Canvas Series products are to be

handled like you would a stained piece of mahogany, walnut or any other premium wood and not like dimensional lumber. Keep the product on a skid and covered until time of installation.

The faux stained pieces should never be stored on the ground, on asphalt, or on any rough surface face down. Boards should be removed from skids by lifting at both ends when possible—friction

between laminate and bare board may cause minor marking. See cleaning tips for removal method. • Refer to porch ceiling installation instructions in the VERSATEX Contractor Handbook

for recommendations and best practices. • Use matching end cut coating applicator for cut board edges and wax stick nail hole filler to cover exposed fastener holes. CLEANING CANVAS SERIES •

Wipe material with gentle cleanser like Simple Green cleaner and a soft cloth. • If marking occurs from board-to-board friction, WD-40, Pledge, and Armor All can also be used but will require

extra wiping to prevent leaving shiny residue. WARNING: DO NOT use abrasive scrub pads like Scotch Brite pads or any solvent like acetone and toluene! They will break down the laminates

and dull the surface
