ONTARIO, CALIF. – West Coast builders will be the first in the nation to view new Sill‑Rite™ cellular PVC window sills when they premier at the 2006 PCBC, June 20-23, 2006. Displayed within the Philips Products exhibit (booth #1925), Sill-Rite sills provide stylish sill protection made of cellular PVC. Each piece helps protect the window sill area from damage caused by moisture, condensation and leaks.
Sill‑Rite window sills are completely prefabricated and finished, making it easy for builders to install on the job site. The PVC sill resists water, mold, stains and warping. Each sill is pre-finished on all exposed edges and requires no priming or painting. The white sills (which attractively wrap around the sides of the window instead of being butt cut and can be painted) are available in two profiles: classic, for an elegant traditional style, and streamline, for a contemporary style.
"Both drywall and MDF can be easily damaged by moisture when used as window sill material," says Karl Hatrak, president of Sill-Rite. "Worse than that, these materials can breed mold. They’re simply not the best choice for a window sill material. Other choices, such as marble or solid surface sills, are extremely costly in terms of materials and labor.“
Sill‑Rite window sills are pre-finished and sized for standard window openings. The solid cellular PVC sills are cost-effective, install quickly and resist everything from insects to rot to water. Even better, the Sill-Rite surfaces are attractive, easy to clean and require very little maintenance."
Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, Sill‑Rite window sills are individually prefabricated to fit typical window openings. Sills are available in two depths (five and seven inches) to fit 2x4 and 2x6 constructed walls. The low maintenance window sills can be installed during or after drywall installation."
Builder callbacks are virtually non-existent with this product versus drywall, MDF or wood sills," says Hatrak. "Between the overall attractiveness of the sills, the installation time saved and the durability of the product, builders are finding the Sill‑Rite sills are an investment in their projects."
Completely waterproof and made of non-organic materials, Sill-Rite window sills are available to builders and remodelers nationwide. The company’s new web site (www.sill-rite.com) offers downloadable installation instructions, cross-section drawings and product information sheets. The site also includes an installation video, section on frequently asked questions, care and cleaning information, the latest company news and a photo gallery.
