Align, pivot, click it in and get out. Sterling claims it's as easy as that for subcontractors who use the four-piece Accord bath/shower unit. Made from the company's featherweight porcelain-toned Vikrell material and designed for 5-foot alcove spaces, the system uses factory-installed attachment clips that create a seam tighter than a Brett Favre spiral — without using any caulk.

Your HVAC crews have some dirty, hard work to do; make their lives easier with Georgia-Pacific's XJ85 wood I-joists. The pre-cut openings are cavernously huge, fit closer together and go all the way to the end of the beam. Although lightweight, the XJ85 joists are as stiff and strong.

Undermount is where it's at in today's kitchens, and Moen wisely expanded its own undermount offerings to include the Camelot. The rounded lines give the sink a flushed look and the 20-gauge steel provides some wicked durability. Like other Moen sinks, the Camelot uses the company's SoundShield undercoating to dampen the rain-on-a-tin-roof sound. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-129
You normally don't associate the word "historic" with "Low-E2", but Kolbe does just that with the Ogee Direct Set windows. The windows have a profile reminiscent of 19th century storefronts and have 78-inch of insulated glass with an argon gas fill to give the historic-looking windows a green kick. Performance divided lites, multiple grilles and a slew of custom wood species are included in the bonanza of Kolbe options. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-131
