Azek Sheet/raised Panel Wainscoat


upcoming project has me questioning the stability of creating faux raised panel with azek sheet with basecap trim vs creating raised panels.

full southern exposure, wondering if the sheet will be stable or get silly in the sun

thoughts?

Re: Azek Sheet/raised Panel Wainscoat


Have you contacted the manufacturer?

I've used Azek and really liked it, but I've only used decking and fascia coverings applications.

I think they will be fine. I am pretty sure thats what they are rated for. I have never seen a raised panel in full sun expose but I have seen many window and door trim outs with detailed trim work last along time in the sun.

It depends on if you're leaving it white or painting a darker color, but I've done quite a bit of Panel work like that with good results. It might be best to build in some room for expansion between the posts using some form of slip joint.

If you use a full panel, give it room to move.

Re: Azek Sheet/raised Panel Wainscoat


About to do a porch enclosure thats approx. 10'x21' and approx. 4' off the ground.
Going to do it all in PVC with raised panels including along the sides of the staircase.
If I ever figure out how to post photos, I will put them up when it's completed.

Re: Azek Sheet/raised Panel Wainscoat


They keep the panel centered and expand and contract for movement. We use them for wood panels

Re: Azek Sheet/raised Panel Wainscoat


My .02...

If the panels are all Azek, then build each as a single unit, with room to slip/move.
But I also know your creativity... this could be an interesting place for copper panels, or something a bit off-the-wall.
