Excerpt taken from the weekly NADRA Industry Brief

December 1, 2010 | The week of October 24th, I attended the International Code Council (ICC) Conference on NADRA’s behalf.

Special thanks to board member Mick Feduniec (Deckscapes, Inc.) and his family for putting me up (and putting up with me) at their beautiful home in Charlotte for the duration of my stay.

Please see http://www.icc-es.org/Help/esac.shtml for a more in-depth discussion of the purpose of ESAC.

Trex® Wins MVP Award From Building Products Magazine

Trex Transcend® Recognized for Superior Innovation, Design and Performance

Winchester, VA – September 8, 2010 | Trex Company, the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing and fencing and trim products, has won Building Products magazine’s 2010 Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award for its revolutionary new Trex Transcend® high-performance decking and railing collection. Trex Transcend was one of just 31 products selected from hundreds of entries to receive the award, and the only decking product to be recognized.

The magazine’s annual awards honor the best new products in the building industry, as selected by a panel of architects, builders and remodelers from across the country. Trex Transcend was assessed on its value to professional contractors and homeowners, based on factors such as reduced installation time and labor costs, customer satisfaction, curb appeal and ability to add a “wow” factor to a home.

Trex Transcend boasts an unprecedented combination of performance and aesthetics guaranteed to outperform wood, composite and PVC for decades. Engineered with an exclusive low-sheen, high-traffic formulation, Trex Transcend resists stains, scratches and mold. As a result, contractors can be confident in the stability and durability of their work, while homeowners can enjoy comfort and beauty without the maintenance issues of wood or the plastic-like appearance of PVC.

“Builders and contractors clearly value the low maintenance, beautiful aesthetics and one-of-a kind composition of Trex Transcend, as evidenced by this most recent honor,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “It is always rewarding to have our products recognized, particularly by our very own customers, as we strive to elevate the entire outdoor living category with our design and manufacturing innovation.”

Each MVP winner is featured in the Summer 2010 issue of Building Products and on the magazine’s website at www.ebuild.com. Published bi-monthly, Building Products is the premier information source for trade professionals searching for what’s new in building materials and products.
