Fastening EasyTrim

Perhaps one of the biggest draws to EasyTrim Reveals is the thickness of our profiles, the thickest gauge nailing flange available for use with fiber cement. Unlike ordinary trims with thin flanges, our flanges can be fastened with a nailing gun using double hot dipped galvanized siding nails.

Fit & Finish Examples

Speeds up installation and helps eliminate deficiencies. Our clean fit and finish through our patented EZ.Bump makes installation easy by allowing all horizontal profiles to easily slide underneath the tabs of the crossing verticals.
