Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Downloadable via any smartphone – or online – from the mobile website http://www.versatexpert.com, the electronic handbook is a first for the industry, that can put installation tips, best practices, catalog information, dealer search and other handy features in any builder’s pocket for ready reference… anytime, anywhere.
The videos cover topics such as cutting, fastening and the installation of VERSATEX PVC architectural trim products which include Stealth window trims, skirtboard, corners, column wraps and soffit. The new app and videos are also available on VERSATEX’s web site, http://www.versatex.com and can also be found on YouTube under VERSATEX.
“Contractors tell us they love the hefty doses of best-practices information we share with them. And they’re at least as ‘wired’ as anyone in the industry, so they’ve been asking for the Contractor Handbook that they can access by smartphone when they’re on the road or at the jobsite,” says VERSATEX Vice President of Sales Rick Kapres.
Designed as a ready-reference field guide, the original pocket-sized Contractor Handbook answers questions and provides detailed instructions on VERSATEX cellular PVC trim. It covers specific construction practices, and offers practical recommendations right down to sealants, adhesives and fasteners. More than 50,000 copies have been distributed since it was released in 2011, and requests for new copies reach VERSATEX every day, so the mobile site was next the natural step.
“As the leaders in PVC trim education, we aim to keep expanding our use of mobile technology. Our goal is to share all the valuable residential construction expertise we’ve gained over the years with our customers, through as many channels as possible,” says Mr. Kapres. “The Contractor’s Handbook mobile website and app will always be at your fingertips when you need it.”
