Video: How to “Be a Good Neighbor” With Vantage Shutters

Vantage shutters

Nothing adds instant curb appeal to a home like the perfect pair of shutters. But those same shutters can detract from the exterior if they’re not maintained properly.

This new video from Vantage sums it up well:

If your drab exterior is fodder for neighborhood gossip, Vantage shutters offer an ideal solution. Along with adding a pop of color and style to the façade, Vantage shutters are engineered for durability. Made from advanced color-through PVC, the shutters eliminate worries about cracking, peeling, or fading; color lasts for decades without painting. 

And that means less maintenance, a longer-lasting look—and no pesky neighbors on your back. 

Neighbors like these:

The shutters come in four styles: open louver, raised panel, board-and-batten, and louver/panel. In addition, buyers can choose from a range of accessories, including elliptical arch tops, quarter-round arch tops, transom tops, and decorative hinges and S-hooks.

Video: Kleer Trimboards vs. Dirt Intrusion

Do your trimboards stand up to dirt?

PVC trim is a low-maintenance alternative to wood. But not all PVC trim is created equal. Over time, some PVC trim products will collect dirt in the edges, leading to a grimy, gray, aged look that can dull the exterior façade.

Kleer Lumber is different. Kleer trimboards feature TruEDGE technology—smoother edges that help the boards resist dirt and, when they do get dirty, make them easier to clean. The result is brilliant white trim that looks great for the long haul.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out this video, in which we put Kleer trim and two other PVC trim brands through a dirt intrusion test to see how they stack up:

As you can see, dirt doesn’t permanently embed itself into the edges of Kleer trimboards, ensuring easier cleaning and a more beautiful finish compared to other PVC trim options.

Kleer Lumber trimboards versus trim competitors

Kleer trimboards also contain UV inhibitors to prevent yellowing, so no painting is required to maintain the original white appearance. Not interested in white? Kleer trim can be painted easily with 100% acrylic latex paint.

To further ensure Kleer trimboards maintain their pristine appearance, they’re wrapped and shipped in KleerPaks. With KleerPaks, dealers can sell smaller quantities without leaving the remaining stock exposed in the lumberyard or warehouse, and builders and remodelers can use the boards they need on the jobsite without worrying about the rest of their product getting scuffed, dinged, or dirty.

Kleer trimboards come in eight widths and in lengths up to 20 feet. And while it offers the look of wood, Kleer trim is resistant to splitting, warping, and checking; it’s straight with no need for culling the pile; and it resists extreme weather conditions.
