Family-owned Kolosso Toyota of Appleton, WI sought to grow their business with a new 66,100 square-foot building. Co-owners Bill and Barb Kolosso decided it was time to make room for the increasing business by constructing a new dealership with over twenty offices and a showroom that is twice as large as the last.

Gries Architectural Group, Inc. was put to the task of designing the new offices and car showroom to accentuate the sleek design of the vehicles that inhabit it. In order to achieve a modern design, Gries naturally chose reveal beads to give the interior space clean modern lines. Aluminum reveals have long been the best option to achieve this look. However, silver vinyl reveals are available at a lower cost than aluminum reveals, while offering the same look and faster installation. Construction Solutions, the contractor on the project, suggested Trim-Tex vinyl Silver Reveals for the project, which ended up saving them big before the project was over!

 

Construction Solutions Owner, Eric Akey, chose Trim-Tex vinyl reveal to complete the ceiling design in the showroom entrance because it was a quarter of the cost of aluminum and easier to install. No backing is required for the vinyl reveal, which allows the bead to simply be stapled into place, saving Akey’s team time during the installation process. Additionally, by using pre-made reveal intersections from Trim-Tex, Akey and his crew saved two hours worth of time in tedious mitering as well as kept job site waste to a minimum. Leader Jesse Schabo was not only surprised by the quick installation time, but also by how closely the color matches aluminum. “I mean, even up close looking at it, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference,” said Schabo. Trim-Tex Silver Reveal is designed to match the look of aluminum, while still providing the flexibility, strength and durability of vinyl. The Silver Reveal provides modern details in the ceiling of the Kolosso Toyota showroom, while allowing for a full ⅛" of expansion control. The length of the bead is rigid, which means that it will install straight and not kink or bend like long runs of aluminum reveals are prone to.

Project Update: After completing project installation, the architectural team made the decision to have the reveals painted. The coating on anodized aluminum reveals does not allow paint to stick. Luckily, the contractor’s decision to work with Trim-Tex vinyl reveals saved the team considerable time in completing the change. Trim-Tex reveals are paintable right out of the box, which made this change order request a snap!
