Using domino for pvc trim
« on: May 02, 2011, 02:10 PM »
I need to install some AZEK trim boards replacing some VERY rotten wood products.  I have the exterior dominoes that I have used for outdoor furniture.  Will they work with the PVC trim (AZEK in this case)??  If there are plastic dominoes, I am not aware.  Anyone know?

Yup, you can use the SIPO tenons with Azek. In fact, that's what Frank Caputo recommends that in his clinics.

This is what I do as well.  I cut them smaller (width) so I can forgo rounding the edges.

Brice, I need to build a gate for one of our jobs we're doing now.  Have you used Sipo dominos with PT lumber?

I bought a pack of Sipos last year, still haven't used them.
