Beauty & Performance

CedarBoards™ Insulated Siding by CertainTeed® provides the added strength and thermal benefit of rigid foam insulation with easy maintenance. Dressing your home in CedarBoards™ is like wrapping your family in a cozy green blanket, since it is made from 60% recycled content. Inside you will enjoy a quieter, more comfortable home. Outside you will appreciate the authentic look of natural wood, enhanced by distinctive colors and finishing touches.
Green Roofing

Boral Roofing by MonierLifetile® presents the first-ever sustainable concrete SMOG-EATING roofing tile that reduces the formation of smog by using a titanium dioxide coating that reacts with sunlight to neutralize smog. And how's this for green, the leftover organic residue that rinses off the roof when it rains actually enhances grass and plant growth. According to the company, a 2,000-square-foot roof can eliminate the same amount of nitrogen oxide that a car produces driving 10,800 miles.
No Leak Skylight

The VELUX® No Leak Skylight features 3 layers of water protection, a lower roof profile with an updated curved architectural design and a neutral gray color to blend with most roof materials and colors. It also comes with advanced LoE3 glass for better energy efficiency, higher visible light transmittance and better daylighting and improved solar heat gain performance. It also carries a 10-year installation warranty plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on product, and five years on blinds and controls.
Sustainable Insulation

Knauf EcoBatt® Insulation doesn't look like any insulation you've ever seen, that's because its natural brown color represents a level of sustainability that combines sand, one of the world's most abundant and renewable resources, post-consumer recycled bottle glass and ECOSE® Technology to create the next generation of sustainable insulation. It contains no phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors and is GREENGUARD certified.
Fun & Eco-Friendly

Transform a child's bedroom or playroom into a place to explore and express their creativity and imagination. Use IdeaPaint® to keep track of appointments, chores, shopping lists and all your important dates. It creates the perfect spot for the family to interact and keep up with each other's busy lives. It offers a flexible, durable and cost-effective dry-erase solution and it's environmentally friendly.
Contemporary Collection

The Vero collection by Delta® features clean, ribbon-like lines and includes WaterSense® certified lavatory faucets that flow at 1.5 gpm and 1.5-gpm showerheads. Showerheads feature H2OKinetic technology, which they say provides the feel of 2.5 gpm despite the lower flow. Both units are available in chrome and stainless finishes.
Timeless Appeal

Reminiscent of natural marble, the Empire Porcelain Stone collection by Crossvile® comes with 20% recycled content tiles in a range of sizes and shapes, from mosaics to 21-inch-by-21-inch large format to plank shapes. It is highly durable, resists staining and scratching and will keep its beautiful look for years to come. Polished and unpolished finishes are available.

The Lumen Ventilation Hood by Miele® offers excellent air extraction, optimizing a careful balance between air removal and energy efficiency. The advanced blower system, quality tested for 20 years of uninterrupted use, builds longevity right into the design.
