Builder Relies on Polyurethane Products for Independent Living Facilities


SYRACUSE, IN – When a recipe works, don’t mess with it. That’s one reason why builder and developer Jeff Long plans to use Nu-Wood decorative trim pieces on his newest (and 15th) independent living facility — the 175-unit Graystone Grande Palazzo.


“We’ve found that polyurethane pieces are a very good value for our projects,” says Jeff S. Long, owner of Graystone Court Villas out of Altoona, Penn. “The interior and exterior pieces install faster than wood counterparts and they’re less expensive. Most importantly, the Nu-Wood pieces are durable and enhance the look of our properties.”

Long has used Nu-Wood exterior and interior window and door trim, crown mouldings and railings on half a dozen of his recent Graystone developments over the past eight years. He often takes advantage of the Nu-Wood Classic Color Program that allows him to specify a Sherwin-Williams® paint color applied at the Nu-Wood facility in Indiana.

“The Classic Color Program is a true time saver on the jobsite,” says Long. “We receive the pieces completely finished and ready to install.”

All 15 Graystone communities are located in Pennsylvania. Each facility features one- and two-bedroom apartments and an abundance of amenities. “It means a lot to us that we can depend on Nu-Wood as a Made-in-America manufacturer,” says Long. “When we need the product, they’ve got it ready through our dealer. These products are dependable for consistency and quality. We’ve come to rely on these products as a part of the recipe for success of our growing company.”

Nu-Wood, a Jasper Plastics company, has created easy-to-install decorative millwork for more than 30 years. The company produces polyurethane, PVC, faux stone and brick products that are all proudly sourced, designed and manufactured in America. Lightweight Nu-Wood products resist peeling, rot, moisture and insects, making them an ideal decorative accent product for the exterior and interior of residential and commercial projects.
