Trusscore vs. FRP
Last Update vor einem Jahr
The material cost of Trusscore Wall&Ceiling Board ranges from $2.50-$3.00 per square foot (USD). But before you crunch the numbers, it's important to consider the total cost of ownership of the materials for your project and the associated benefits that will save you money in the long run.
Ultimately, choosing Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard instead of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) panels means saving time and money. This is particularly true when the project is a large one.
The installed cost of FRP with a drywall backer, for example, is about $1 per square foot more expensive than that of Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard. Labor savings grow particularly pronounced if the project calls for material on the ceiling or if the walls are higher than 10 feet, thanks to Wall&CeilingBoard panels being available in lengths as long as 20 feet.
Cutting FRP panels, which come in flimsy 4'x8' sheets and can be difficult-to-handle, is a more difficult and awkward task when compared to cutting Trusscore. In terms of labor cost, Installing FRP often requires two people with specialized skills, whereas Trusscore products can be installed by one person alone and there is no need for a specialized skill set.
