ONTARIO, CALIF. – Sill‑Rite™, manufacturers of the original vinyl Premium Sills, has introduced new Standard Sills to the marketplace. Made of cellular PVC, Standard Sills can be used by building professionals for new construction, retrofit and replacement situations in residential and commercial projects.
“Builders and remodelers looking for a fast, economical way to protect windows and walls in the home will like the new Standard Sills,” says Karl Hatrak, president of Sill‑Rite. “Available in Classic and Streamline profiles, the Standard Sills come in a variety of sill depths and lengths, and start at under $14 for sills ordered on-line at www.sill‑rite.com.”
The durable Standard Sills will not rot, cup, split, twist or warp like wood window sills, and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
“We added Standard Sills to our product line for individuals looking for a way to add a waterproof barrier that protects the sill area of the window,” says Karl Hatrak, president of Sill‑Rite. “Builders and remodelers know that moisture is a home’s number one enemy. If moisture gets between the walls and the window sill area, it can cause the growth of mold and mildew. When installed properly, Sill‑Rite sills help prevent moisture from seeping into the inner wall so that moisture problems are eliminated.”
The Sill‑Rite Standard Sills join the Sill‑Rite Premium Sills as another alternative for stylish sill protection systems in the home. The Premium Sills feature profiles on the front and ends that wrap around the sides of the window instead of being butt cut.
Sill‑Rite window sills are completely prefabricated and finished, making them easy for building industry professionals to install. The solid PVC Sill‑Rite sill resists water, mold, stains and warping. Each sill is pre-finished and requires no priming or painting. Sills do not require painting but will accept paint so that homeowners may create custom color looks for their sills.
“Sill‑Rite window sills are pre-finished and sized for standard window openings,” says Hatrak. “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.”
Available in stock lengths to make it easier for installers to cut and fit the sill to the window opening, Standard Sills are easy for job-site use. Completely waterproof and made of non-organic materials, Sill‑Rite window sills are available nationwide via the company’s web site (www.sill‑rite.com) and at select Home Depot locations. The site 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.
