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.
