Every year, homebuilder and The BUILD Show host Matt Risinger shares a video roundup of interesting and innovative building products on his YouTube channel. In the 2023 edition, Matt shares products that can improve the life and quality of your home or save you joint pain and frustration on the job site. With these characteristics in mind, it should be no surprise that Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard and Trusscore SlatWall make the cut for the video.
See what Matt has to say about our PVC-based, interior wall, ceiling, and storage panels at 16:43 in the video below.
What are Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard and Trusscore SlatWall?
Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard are lightweight and low maintenance interior wall and ceiling panels that install with ease and provide a bright, clean finish in any space all while being waterproof and impact resistant. These panels are the perfect alternative to drywall in high-traffic spaces and in your home's utility areas (think garages, workshops, laundry rooms, basements, mudrooms, and more!).
Trusscore SlatWall is a beautiful, durable, and easy-to-install wall storage system that can be installed as a track, section, half wall, or full wall to meet your unique organizational needs. Plus, the panels can hold up to 75 pounds per square foot and can instantly be accessorized with any standard 3” slatwall accessory on the market. Trusscore SlatWall is an ideal alternative to pegboard and slatwall made from medium density fiberboard in garages, offices, workspaces, and more.
Why does Matt Risinger like Trusscore products?
Matt previously installed Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard in a shed to get an up close and personal look at the product and how it performs (and he documented the experience on YouTube, of course!). Here are a few of the reasons Matt likes Trusscore:
Ease of Install
Pre-finished Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard panels weigh 40% less than drywall and — thanks to their pre-punched screw flange and tongue and groove interlocking system — can be installed four times faster with no mudding, taping, priming, or painting required. And since you don’t need any special tools or skills to install the product, you can fully finish an entire room from wall to ceiling by yourself in a single weekend (or faster if you’re a contractor!).
Strength & Durability
Per Matt, Trusscore panels are rugged and will take a beating. But there’s more to Trusscore panels’ toughness than that: The presence of PVC means that the panels are impact-resistant and can stand up to contact without showing dents, cracks, or damage. Plus, when the mechanical strength of PVC is combined with a unique inner truss design, Trusscore panels can outlive the buildings they’re installed in.
Moisture and Water Resistance
In the video, Matt mentions that Trusscore panels are waterproof and can be hosed down. He’s right! Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard and Trusscore SlatWall both have a smooth, non-porous surface that’s 100% moisture and water resistant. This means the panels will never grow mold and mildew, they can be repeatedly cleaned with soap and water or with a pressure washer without ever showing signs of damage.
Storage and Wallboard Integration
Trusscore SlatWall seamlessly integrates with Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard to fully finish your wall, and it’s the only storage system on the market to do so.
