Before You Start
Before diving in, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, check the installation guides from your chosen trim manufacturer when using them with Trusscore products. It's a smart move to ensure a smooth installation.

Compatible Trim Manufacturers
There are several PVC trim manufacturers that produce exterior trims that can also work beautifully as interior trims alongside Trusscore. These trims come in various profiles, like trimboards and mouldings (including cove, crown, and casing). The list is not exhaustive, so choose a trim that suits your Trusscore products and follow the guidelines.
Guidelines on Installing Trusscore Products with Other PVC Trims
When working with Trusscore and other PVC trims, keep these details in mind:
- Avoid installing Trusscore Trim in areas where other PVC trim is meant to be used. This ensures the intended functionality and appearance of both products are maintained.
- When using Trusscore Trim in combination with other PVC trims, be mindful of potential overlap. Trim lengths should be adjusted accordingly to avoid unnecessary overlaps.
- Ensure screws used to install other PVC trims do not hit screws used to fasten Trusscore products.
- Use fasteners that are long enough to penetrate a minimum of 1 inch into the supporting framing. This ensures a strong and stable attachment.
- Standard nail guns are suitable for many PVC trim and moulding products. If using pneumatic tools, regulate the air pressure so that fasteners slightly penetrate the surface without causing damage.
- All fasteners must be anchored into solid framing members. Fasten Trusscore products every 16 inches for a secure installation.
- For trim and moulding products that are 5 inches or less in width, use two fasteners per stud. For wider products, consider using three fasteners per stud to ensure a stronger hold.
In the world of DIY, guidance is your best friend. Always consult the installation guides provided by individual trim manufacturers when using other PVC trims with Trusscore products. It's your insurance for a job well done.
