A PVC porch ceiling and LED downlight draw the eyes of readers among recent print and online product coverage. The following product received the most reader inquiries in the past month on QualifiedRemodeler.com: VERSATEX BUILDING PRODUCTS Instead of turning to luxury woods with dark finishes when specifying a tongue-and-groove ceiling for outdoor areas, Versatex Building Products offers its Canvas Series as a solution. It combines the beauty of black cherry, walnut or tropical macore with the technical advantages of PVC exterior trim. After three years of research and development, Versatex's Canvas Series presents a straight, knot-free material in uniform lengths for achieving the character of hardwood tongue-and-groove porch ceilings without the maintenance. While engineered specifically for ceilings and other applications with minimal UV exposure, the series can also be used as wainscoting and other interior applica- tions where moisture resistance is critical. e selection of wood tones—black cherry, walnut or tropical macore—were selected based on feedback from builders, dealers and distributors. e initial Canvas Series release conforms to the familiar Versatex WP4 tongue-and-groove profile with wood-grain laminates bonded to moisture-re- sistant cellular PVC. Offered in 18-foot lengths, the WP4 profile measures ¾ inch thick and spans up to 24 inches on center. A matching 4-inch crown moulding is available in 16-foot lengths, and the system includes a col- or-matched touchup kit for use on butt joints or any fastener marks.

The following product received the most reader inquiries from the March issue of Qualified Remodeler : EATON e Halo Surface LED Downlight (SMD) from Eaton can be installed directly into drywall without the need for re- cessed housing or junction box, making the downlight ideal for applications like closets, storage areas, basements and other locations where plenum space is limited.
