Hello readers, Jennifer here with you this week with some front porch inspiration to get you outside where you can enjoy these lovely summer evenings. When I think back to my childhood summers, there is one memory that dominates the rest: sitting outside on the front porch after dinner playing card games with my siblings while my parents talked about their days and waved to neighbors as they passed by. Back then the front porch was just a porch. But today, a porch is an extension of indoor living spaces, with more attention to detail than ever. Including the ceilings!
Beadboard is the embodiment of craftsman charm when it comes to porch ceilings and has been installed for decades over exposed plywood or joists in porch overhangs. But there’s an even better solution than the traditional wood beadboard, which requires staining or painting, and eventually scraping and repainting after the elements take their toll. Inteplast Building Products Beaded Trim is designed for style and longevity. You can dress up porch ceilings and soffits with this tongue-and-groove beaded profile. And, unlike traditional wood beadboard, Inteplast’s product requires very little maintenance. No scraping and painting necessary.
For areas of the country with harsher summers and coastal salt air and sand, Inteplast Building Products Beadboard is the perfect stylish solution because it’s engineered to be weather resistant and won’t crack, split, or rot, and it’s unaffected by insects because it’s pure PVC—inside and out. There’s no organic fills so it’s less prone to mold and moisture. Clean up is easy with just a mild soap and water.
The durability and upkeep of this beadboard product makes it ideal for hard-to-maintain soffits as well. And the smooth, white finish pairs well with any exterior finish whether it’s brick or wood, PVC, or fiber cement siding.
Beadboard is just one of those products that adds a creative, finishing touch to any application you use it for, including porch ceilings.
