MiraTEC® Trim Expands in Canada

JELD-WEN Announces a New Canadian Distribution Partner

CHARLOTTE, N.C.— JELD-WEN is pleased to announce a new Canadian distribution partner for MiraTEC® Trim, Nicholson and Cates Limited Building Products.

Nicholson and Cates Limited is known in the Ontario building supply industry for their dedication to providing premium quality, innovative products and exceptional service.

“Combining the industry expertise of the Nicholson and Cates team with the quality and durability of MiraTEC is a win for builders in the marketplace,” said Peggie Bolan, vice president and general manager of building products for JELD-WEN, the manufacturer of MiraTEC trim. “We expect that Nicholson and Cates’ focus on customer needs will serve as the driving channel for product education needed in a growing market.”

According to Jim Livemore, Nicholson and Cates president, “We are excited to offer MiraTEC, a high-quality exterior trim that meets the exacting standards our customers have come to expect from products we offer.”

MiraTEC exterior trim is an environmentally friendly wood composite product manufactured in Towanda, Pennsylvania that combines the eye-catching beauty of wood with the long-lasting performance of an engineered product. Because it is not hardboard, MiraTEC trim will not delaminate and it is moisture, rot and termite resistant, making it suitable for a wide range of climates. MiraTEC products are backed by a 50-year limited warranty. MiraTEC trim is building code rated (14015-L from the CCMC). MiraTEC also has no added urea-formaldehyde (certified by Scientific Certification Systems under certificate number SCS-NAUF-01802), and complies with the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) 93120 to utilize exempt status ultra-low emitting formaldehyde (ULEF) resins making it an excellent choice for sustainable building.
