Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.
All Hands on Deck
Check out these decking and patio products
You'd be right to go with CorrectPorch by Correct Building Products. The boards feature a new spacer bead design and are made from an environmentally sustainable 60/40 recycled hardwood and polypropylene mix that resists sagging. Working to qualify for LEED? This will help. The boards fit with a tongue-and-groove connection and match the architecture of traditional covered porches. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/23720-255.
Fiberon's new Sensibuilt features a new coating for exceptional stain, scratch, fade and mold resistance. Your homeowners won't have to worry about maintenance, either. The recycled PVC boards are Class-A fire rated and resist moisture and impact. The infrared and heat-reflective surface is impermeable and cooler, too.

Released last year, TimberTech's XLM decking planks feature new colors. The Desert Bronze planks closely emulate the pattern and color of a tropical ipè hardwood. The planks are made from an advanced low-maintenance polymer that uses a proprietary blend of mineral enhancements for structural integrity. The grooved planks work with the company's stainless steel hidden fasteners. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/23720-258.
Using an I-rail design for both top and bottom rails and exclusive bracket design, CertainTeed's vinyl Edgewood railings look like wood and are easy to install. The system's durable precision-fit components do not require pre-drilling for installation. For long-lasting security, the brackets come complete with corrosion-resistant stainless steel screws with trim covers. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/23720-256.
