Innovative Building Products for Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Check out some of the cool products I found at the International Builders’ Show that would be a great addition to any home.

  • Schluter Systems has developed a tile shower installation system that uses a prefabricated pan instead of relying on a labor intensive grout bed. It also features a square drain grate which makes cutting tiles easier.
  • Jacuzzi introduced a towel warming drawer that will heat your towels up to 120 degrees in just 15 minutes.
  • Lopi has added a line of portrait style gas fireplaces that can be installed in almost any room in your home which include an aroma therapy option.
  • Thermaflex has developed a fiberglass cloth liner for the inside of flexible HVAC ductwork that won’t tear or burn.
  • QuietRock drywall will bring peace and quiet to your home by dampening vibrations to reduce sound transmission by up to 75%.
  • JELD-WEN Windows & Doors showcased their custom carved interior doors that are available in a number of designs to personalize every room in your home.
