International Builders Show 2019

Three Can’t Miss Updates From IBS 2019

Over the course of three days this February, TDSW attended the International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, NV, where we saw the best and most cutting-edge industry innovations. If you couldn’t make it, here are a few of TDSW’s can’t-miss takeaways from the show:

  1. This contemporary Marvin pivot door, available now for spring patio projects. It speaks for itself; see it in action below.
  2. User-friendly windows ideal for kitchen remodels: It can be challenging to reach the locks on (and even to open) double-hung windows over a kitchen sink. Marvin has integrated the lock and lift in this sleek window that’s a cinch to unlock and open in one fell swoop; as you close the window it locks automatically. Even simpler: super easy-to-open awning windows.
  3. ZIP System Flashing Tape: when considering options for water and weather-proofing, builders who care about longevity have been leaning towards butyl-based flashing tape. At IBS we were able to see up-close the advantages of the acrylic ZIP System Flashing Tape, which offers a continuous air barrier, water resistive barrier, increased structural durability, and as you can see in this video from Matt Risinger, adhesion that builds over time (even in extreme temperatures.)
