Royal Building Products Launches Black Soffit

Royal® Building Products, a Westlake company, today announced the addition of black soffit to their Exterior Portfolio® and Royal® vinyl lines. The new black soffit creates a distinctive accent when used in porch ceilings, eaves and overhangs.

“To further differentiate their exteriors, builders and remodelers are seeking bold, contrasting

accent colors. To meet the demand, we’ve added black soffit to our product lineup,” said Steve Booz, vice president of marketing, Royal Building Products. “This on-trend color provides a finishing touch and works well with a variety of home and siding styles.”
