Exterior Tongue & Groove Planks
Cut to Size & Delivered Right to Your Job Site
Looking for a durable beadboard product that will bring your finished project to the next level has never been more convenient. If you know how to cut, rout, or nail wood you'll know how to cut, shape, fasten and finish VERSATEX Beadboard Planks using standard carpentry tools. With the standard profile being a full 1/2" thick, 5 1/2" wide creating a surface that provides 5% more coverage than our others, making the exterior beadboard planks even more appealing.
Our Stealth beadboard features an extended ½" tongue to allow for an easier to reach surface for Blind Nailing thus speeding up the installation. Beaded sheets are also an excellent alternative option. This product option allows you to get the same look while saving even more, time on the project and is extremely useful for exterior applications.
Note that exterior beadboard paneling or planks differs from the interior equivalent. Both variants are made from some formulation of vinyl or PVC. Additionally, aside from the obvious, exterior beadboard tends to be thicker and stronger for more impact resistance.
Another difference is that better quality exterior products have UV inhibitors added to resist oxidation. This is why, for example, vinyl lawn chairs that do not have these inhibitors added, tend to develop a grey hazy surface that cannot be washed off. The problem with trying to interchange the products between installation environments is that the chemicals used for this UV protection can be very toxic in the event of a fire. Some building codes prohibit exterior PVC for interior applications. Interior beadboard products do not require UV protection; therefore do not require these additives.
