Wolf PVC Trim


One of my main suppliers is switching from Azek to Wolf brand PVC trim. I just picked up my first batch of 5/4 x 4 -18 and brick mould for a window trim job coming up and I'm wondering if anybody has used it.

Nice selection of profiles and sizes and the price is right.

First they carried Koma, then Azek, now Wolf - market must be getting pretty competitive.

Re: Wolf PVC Trim


Just used it last week, my supplier switched over several months ago
It's nice stuff. I can't tell any difference between Azek and Wolf. I was asked to be a tester before they switched and got 3 different brands. No one knew which one was what brand. We all picked the wolf with Versatech in a close second. I like the versatech soffit system but it's very pricey. Hard one to sell.

We installed wolf trim around a front entrance door, built it up, crown, etc. it came out nice!

My yard sells both and they pretty much are the same thing.

Been using CertainTeed Millwork on last few projects.
Like the grain. Not too pronounced.

Re: Wolf PVC Trim


PVC trim stock has essentially become a commodity like primed pine. There's not a lot of brand loyalty because you, the contractor, installs whatever the yard ships that day. They buy whatever they get the best deal on.

The PVC market has become cutthroat to the point that Wolf broke their ties to Azek to push their own anonymous board.

PVC trim used to be a novelty. Now it's a standard material everyone uses.

You guys are lucky to have places that stock it. Out here in AZ it's a special order 99% of the time. Most of the places we deal with can get it in a few days from their California vendors or shipped in since it's generally a small order
