Recapping the 2011 International Builders' Show
By John Kirchner
January 15, 2011
What a week. The 2011 International Builders’ Show has had the construction industry hopping for the past several days, and as the show’s attendees get ready to head home, we thought it’d be a good idea to put the highlights of what Integrity Windows and Doors has been up to this week in a nice little package for the weekend.
Here’s what we did during IBS:
Integrity reported on some big trends in the construction industry, like these six upcoming home design and building trends for 2011 (with videos!).
Integrity unveiled an array of new and improved products — a new All Ultrex Round Top window, certified factory-mulled assemblies from the IMPACT Products line, a new spacer bar option in our Wood-Ultrex Series, and a new standard size for our sliding French door.
Integrity showcased other cool products from the Builders’ Show, like this outdoor space heater, a toilet with self-closing lid, a power station for charging electric cars, and some stunning hand-crafted metalwork.
Integrity interviewed a bunch of smart folks, including Paul Anater of Kitchen and Residential Design and NAHB board member Robert Wiedenmann.
Those are some of our favorite highlights from IBS2011. What were some of your favorites from the show?
