UPVC Roofline Installation - PDF
Take a look at our leaflet on installation tips for UPVC roofline components, in refurbishment and new build replacement projects.
Window Boards have been used in construction and refurbishment projects for decades and are designed to provide a horizontal, flat finish for the internal window sill.
The Window Boards stocked by PVC Cladding have a core made of chipboard and an outer skin which is pressure laminated melamine, to ensure their structural integrity they are 22mm thick which means that they are a high quality modern alternative to timber boards. These boards are very hardwearing, resisting the effects of heat, moisture and impact that would certainly be more damaging to traditional timber.
The PVC Window boards stocked by PVC Cladding offer an aesthetic solution to finish both window and conservatory installations. These boards have the durability of the timber that they mimic however their laminated outer skin means that they are both moisture resistant and difficult to stain; this same skin also provides protection from scratches and other abrasions.
As they are made from bonded chipboard and then laminated these Window boards do not react to extremes of temperature in the same way as timber so will not warp or crack which makes them ideally suited to conservatories.
As our plastic coated Window boards are sold in a range of factory produced colours there is no need to paint them and their laminated exterior coat means that no additional protective treatments need to be applied, in most cases these boards are virtually maintenance free and will only need wiping down occasionally to maintain their original look.
In keeping with the Timber and MDF Window boards which they replace our Laminated Window boards can be easily cut and shaped without chipping the external coating, this ensures that mitre joints are easily formed and where care is taken the joints can be sealed together without the need for joint strips.
Our Laminated Window boards come in lengths ranging from 2½ metres to 5 metres and with popular widths ranging from 150mm to 300mm to suit the particular application and window ledge to be covered.
To ensure that our Window boards match the decorative style required we sell a range of 5 different colours; in addition to our popular range of White Window boards we stock 4 different Woodgrain patterns including Pine, Light Oak, Rosewood and Mahogany. These woodgrain boards do not have the surface texture of the timber boards so provide a smooth, flat surface with an aesthetic patterned finish.
Prior to installing our Laminated Window boards please ensure that the installation area is debris and moisture free, and is generally in a well maintained condition.
