Boral TruExterior® Beadboard

Boral TruExterior® Beadboard

Boral TruExterior® Beadboard is made with the revolutionary new poly-ash material, which addresses both the moisture- and movement-related issues commonly seen with other exterior materials, creating a balance of performance and aesthetics that cannot be found with other manmade alternatives.

Including 4-inch, double-4, 6-inch and double-6 profiles, the Boral TruExterior® Beadboard product line offers the look of traditional wood beadboard but it performs better, is remarkably workable and has a lasting look - all without the issues that commonly plague exterior wood products.  Plus it can be installed using proven woodworking tools and methods, so no special tools are required.

Boral TruExterior® Beadboard maintains a high level of dimensional stability during periods of temperature and moisture change, which allows it to resist moisture-related issues such as cracking and splitting. Plus it’s virtually rot and termite free, and it’s backed by a 20-year limited warranty, which makes it a great, low-maintenance alternative to other exterior trim products.

Superior Workability

Ideal for porch ceilings, soffits, and decorative wall applications, Boral TruExterior® Beadboard allows for a variety of installations, as it can be attached in either parallel or perpendicular directions. The high level of dimensional stability† allows the product to be installed 24" on center without the need for additional backing for added support. Its "tongue-and-groove" design allows it to be fastened through the tongue, resulting in a clean look free from visible fasteners, or it can be reversed to offer a contemporary "V-groove" appearance. As with other Boral TruExterior® products, the beadboard profile is not susceptible to moisture absorption† and does not require priming or sealing of cut ends.
