Trim Solutions LLC

The QuickTrim System from Trim Solutions provides a fastener-free finish for exterior trim. With its hidden fastening system, the trim can be built on-site using woodworking tools and provides a seamless exterior with no nails through the face of the trim. The PVC flat stock board comes standard with a nailing flange and starter strip; an optional J-channel is available for use with vinyl siding. Any exterior grade fastener with a flat head can be used with the QuickTrim System. The flat stock boards are offered in 1-inch thickness, 3 ½- to 15 ¼-inch widths, and 12- and 20-foot lengths. Made of PVC, there is no need for caulking or painting the boards (though they can be painted with 100 percent acrylic latex paint or other products formulated for vinyl products), and it will not rot or split. QuickTrim System mounting blocks and corner boards are also available.

In addition to use around windows and doors, the system can be installed anywhere exterior PVC trim is used, including frieze boards, water tables, and inside and outside corners. Currently, the QuickTrim System is being distributed exclusively through Boise Cascade in Massachusetts and New Hampshire to reach dealers throughout the Northeast. Trim Solutions does have plans to expand distribution nationwide in the near future.
