The NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) is the largest annual light construction show in the world. The 600,000 sqft exhibit space features 1,400 of the top manufacturers and suppliers; showcasing the latest and most in-demand products and services. While no one from the HCP was able to attend the show this year, we’ve been researching and reading up on what we missed. Here are a few products featured at IBS that we’d like to highlight.
AZEK Multi-Width Decking
Azek makes premium quality and low maintenance exterior products. We love using AZEK pavers and AZEK DrySpace is great for utilizing the space below your deck. New to their multi-width deck products include two new 7 1/4″ wide board colors in the Harvest Collection — brownstone and slate gray.

LOTTE Chemical Corporation will expand its surface options with the launch of an entirely new category of product – the Locelain sintered-stone collection.
