Protecting a house from the weather and making it airtight are two different things.

In the old days, you just covered the walls and roof with heavy felt paper, today it’s more complicated.  You need to help builders choose the right system for their project and make sure they understand the installation details that lead to long-term durability.  And no, they can’t just use whatever tape is the cheapest.

About LBM Expo Demo Zone #1: High-Performance Homes

If you don’t understand best practices, you can’t help your customers choose the right products.

High-performance homes are durable, efficient, comfortable and healthy. Building them requires the careful assembly of a dizzying number of products. Each of those products is a very deliberate choice made at the lumberyard. In the end, good building means good choices, both for the yard and for their customers. Join us for a series of hands-on demos and lively discussions that will help you guide your builders to best practices and drive margins for both of you.
