The Parade of Products, or POP as it’s known, is a competition from the largest home building trade show on the West Coast, PCBC, and is a celebration of the most inventive new product solutions of the past year. The new ideas and products on display at the show, and especially those selected as POP winners, represent the fruits of labor of some of the most innovative minds in the home building world.
A panel of industry judges consisting of builders, engineers, designers, journalists, and architects rated the products based on innovation, practical application, and design, and, for 2016, came up with a list of 20 winners that embodied those qualities the most.
The top three winning products were Andersen Windows’ VeriLock Security Sensor, the LiftMaster 8550W Battery Backup Garage Door Opener, and the SnapPower Guidelight. Outside of the top three, an additional 17 products were selected as winners.
From built-in ovens and remote controlled toilets to clear vinyl retractable screens and bamboo-based wall systems, the winning products run the gamut of what a builder may hammer, caulk, or install on a daily basis.
