Technology


Each year the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) hosts the incredible International Builders Show . In all, there are over 40 football fields of exhibits! Can you believe it? This amounts to 1.2 million square feet of building materials, electronics, security, wiring, lighting – the works. It takes four days just to walk it all!

Now here’s the best part: All the new technologies are displayed. And not just nifty things like plasma screen tvs or total home surveillance and security systems. The show brings out all of the new building materials and finish products that last longer, that are easier to install, that are safer, that are better for the environment, that use less energy, etc.

While many other builders are getting their pictures taken on the Harley Davidson Motorcycles and entering the hammer-n-nail pounding contests, we are investigating these new technologies for our customers. In addition, we read, read, and read trade publications to stay on top of the ever-increasing flow of information critical to this industry.
