Benefits of Boral TruExterior Trim

CO Siding

Boral developed a truly innovative product line with their TruExterior siding. The poly-ash combination made out of polymer and fly-ash creates a very durable material. It has a number of important resistances and valuable attributes.

In addition to siding Boral also developed trim out of that same tough material. That way you can finish your home’s exterior to create a matching look that will last. As it is made out of the same poly-ash combination, it also has the same amazing benefits.

Both the siding and the trim have been rigorously tested, by Boral and third parties. These tests furthered and proved the durability and dependability of the Boral TruExterior products. They also showed the benefits of the poly-ash material. 

The advantages of the Boral TruExterior trim and siding include the following:

Suitable for different climates

The trim and siding were tested in different climates. The test results showed that the material and products are well suited for a variety of climates and hold up well. That means even in Colorado with its varying and sometimes extreme weather, the Boral siding and trim does well. It can stand up to our climate and performs great while looking amazing.

The TruExterior trim is ideal for humid and rainy climates. It also excels in environments with heavy snow and frost. It can withstand freeze and thaw conditions, which other sidings and trim products cannot.

Moisture resistant

The benefit of performing well in different climates directly relates to this advantage. The TruExterior products are very well suited for wet environs. Other materials cycles quite a bit of moisture, which is not the case with the poly-ash combination.

The material also does not really expand or contract. That is a huge advantage over other materials. The moisture resistance is part of the reason why this trim requires much less maintenance than real wood siding. This will save you both time and money over the lifespan of the trim and is a huge benefit.

Bug and rot resistant

The poly-ash combination is made out of inorganic materials. That means that is does not provide food for bugs like termites, wood-boring bees, or carpenter ants. That is a huge advantage over real wood trim, as it does not attract these pests and thus will not be damaged by them. 

The material makeup also means that it is not susceptible to rot. Those attributes further contribute to the low maintenance it requires and its durability.

Ground contact

Not many siding products can perform well in direct ground contact. Boral’s TruExterior products do not require end-sealing and can therefore be in direct contact with the ground. They can also be used in moisture-prone areas as well as in contact with masonry. This greatly increases their uses and applications.


Even if you do not plan to install the trim yourself, its workability is still very important for you. That is because if it is easier to install it will save you money. The faster and easier the material is to install, the more you will save on the installation cost.

The TruExterior products do not need to be glued and they do not require difficult installation techniques which can be very costly. The fastening used can be adjusted to the local environs and require no pre-drilling. This all results in easier, faster installation and thus reduced installation cost.

The workability also leads to endless application possibilities. The trim can be used even in tricky places on your home and gives it and the siding a finished, beautiful look. Furthermore, the trim material can be painted virtually any color so that you can create the look for your home you really want.

Environmentally friendly

The poly-ash trim and siding are made out of over 70% recycled materials. Fly ash is a byproduct that is created when coal is combusted to generate power. By using this byproduct, it does not end up in landfills and has an amazing secondary use. 

The sustainability is very important for Boral. With this innovative product they are able to recycle material and make it into a durable and high-performing new product line with their TruExterior trim and siding. Additionally, the products are covered by a great warranty that is as tough as the products themselves.
