Manufacturers Share Highlights from 2020 International Builders Show

A letter from NADRA’s President, Matt Breyer: 

This year’s International Builder’s Show was again held in Las Vegas, and like always it is almost impossible to absorb it entirely! It’s a very well-run event, but the sheer size and scope of what you are immersed in can be daunting.

Part of what I attempt to do is visit with as many of our NADRA members as possible while walking the show. However, due to the 80-100,000+ people walking the show with me, this means I’m not able to physically talk with our members- as there’s a crowd in their booth ahead of me!

It’s been encouraging to see the growth and development with our members- and with the industry segment at large at this show. At the moment they haven’t sectioned us off into our own “wing”, but there is no doubt that the “outdoor living” category is well represented at IBS.
Something else I attempt to do at this show is simply walk through as much of it as possible, looking for design inspiration, subtle market trends, and clues for where consumer preferences are headed. Rest assured, if there’s a kitchen cabinet feature consumers want inside, at some point that’s a detail they will be asking about outside with the grilling station, and I’d like to be informed enough to have that conversation!

Something else I’ve grown to love about shows like this, is the excuse for some “reflection time” away from the “daily grind” back at home/office. Vegas isn’t exactly known for it’s “quiet spaces”, but the dramatically different environment does provide an opportunity to disrupt daily routines, and some personal reflection- and that (at least for me) is extremely rejuvenating!

It looks like we’re headed into another strong year. There’s good pent-up consumer demand, a great overall economy, and we’ve got some of the best materials available to use as we seek to exceed our client’s expectations yet again. Here’s to an AWESOME 2020!

We hope to see you throughout the year at various NADRA events and shows. Please stay in touch! If you’d like to send us photos and a brief recap from your experience at the International Builder’s Show, please send images, links and comments to Info@NADRA.org. We will keep the blog updated with posts from our members!

At your service, 
Matt Breyer

We invite you to scroll through the photos & comments from NADRA members that participated & exhibited at the International Builder’s Show last week in Las Vegas:

Screw Products, Inc.:

We had a wonderful time at the International Builders Show this year in Las Vegas. The people who came to our booth were from a good mixture of states, a wide variety of visitors from lumberyards to designers, to contractors, and all were very interested in our new and improved line of Gen II fasteners. We had quality time to explain our Horizon Curve Head and its slight curvature of the head that make for for elegant, professional results. The Finish Ring underneath the head that provides a better finish by cutting the top fibers in the wood for an extra step in countersinking, our Turbine Ribs that cut quickly into the wood, leaving a professional, clean finish with maximum wood contact, our Twin Blade Knurls that cuts fast to dramatically reduce friction and heat on the shank, while reducing load on the drill and we talked about our Fast Start Tip sharp threads all the way to the tip and how the fastener has an immediate grip for a fast start. The inset thread cut drastically reduces splitting effect and minimizes the driving torque needed to engage the wood.

We introduced our new lines at the show that included AXIS™ Structural Wood Screws, EPIC™ Trim Head Screws, PICO™ Finish Head Screws, AURA™ for Cabinetry & More, NOVA™ Structural Lag Screws, YUKON™ Hex Structural Lags and ROCO™.

We were also able to show our new Planograms available to the retail lumberyard, home center and hardware store. Learn more at ScrewProducts.com.

TimberTech:

The 2020 IBS AZEK TimberTech booth was a labor of love with the joint efforts of Minnesota Platinum Contractors Phi Decks and Deck and Basement partnering on the deck build.  The 50×80 deck featured all of the colors in the Legacy and Vintage collections as well as the four colors in the new Reserve Collection. Learn more at: TimberTech.com

NADRA Members, AGS Stainless: 

At IBS this year, AGS Stainless released its newest stainless steel railing system, Cascadia Rail.

Cascadia Rail was designed to provide deck builders with a visually-stunning and cost-effective stainless alternative to aluminum railing systems. 

Made from 316 marine-grade stainless steel and fabricated to AGS Stainless’ exacting standards, the lineal foot cost of Cascadia is similar to aluminum rail. 

Cascadia is easy to install, ships within 48-hours and is is currently the only ICC-ES approved metal railing system with a horizontal infill. This means Cascadia can be installed quickly,  anywhere in the US and Canada, by just about anyone – and without the need for the engineering calculations typically required by local permitting authorities for custom stainless rails.

For additional info or to order Cascadia for your next project, go to: AGSStainless.com  

NADRA Members, Versatex:

IBS 2020 in Las Vegas was an incredible time. We had a blast showcasing our products at IBS with new color offerings with our Canvas Series. The best part about the show was conversing with industry professionals all week and learning about their work. This is definitely a show that should not be missed! Plenty of innovative products come up each year and we are lucky to have such great support from the industry. Learn more at Versatex.com

NADRA Members, Armadillo: 

Avon Plastics was at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) last week, showing builders how to cut deck installation time by up to 60% just by using TurboClip Hidden Deck fasteners. That’s precious time you can spend elsewhere.

Avon Plastics booth featured all of our building material brands from Armadillo Composite Decking, Grid Axcents Decorative Lattice, TurboClip Universal Hidden Deck Clip and Quix Tile.

We think our Builder Rebate Program is the best in the industry! We had a great response by getting people signed up for the builder rebate program right at the show when they visited our booth.  When you use our brands, we’ll rebate you 3% of your material cost on all Armadillo, TurboClip, and Grid Axcents products. Plus, our Armadillo and TurboClip builders will receive two 192ct boxes of Narrow Gap TurboClip fasteners (enough to install 200sf) simply for signing up! Sign up today at pro.avonplastics.com.  All in all, it was an awesome show!

NADRA Members, MoistureShield:

MoistureShield® made a huge splash with its new booth at the 2020 IBS Show, right on the heels of winning “Marketer of Year” –the highest honor in Hanley-Wood’s Brand Builder Awards.  The winning campaign was highlighted in the booth, with captivating images of underwater scenes on their extremely moisture-resistant composite decking. MoistureShield was also submerged in an actual water fountain and pool, something no other decking would dare to promote!

MoistureShield’s Elevate™ capped wood composite decking, initially offered in select locations in 2019, has now launched nationally at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas. Contractor and lumber dealer interest in Elevate is growing rapidly, as they recognize the need for an attractive capped decking product at an entry-level price point. Elevate decking features a strong, protective cap which shields each board from impact, corrosion and harsh weather. 

In addition, Elevate was Finalist in the NAHB’s Most Innovative Products in the Best of the IBS Awards.  MoistureShield also hosted designer and former HGTV host Chip Wade, as he explored the brand’s Solid Core Difference which makes all MoistureShield decking products moisture-resistant enough to be submersible in water.  He also did the “Feel the Difference” comparison the CoolDeck technology, in which you can actually feel the surface temperature difference in CoolDeck compared to other decking brands. And, Chip did a Facebook Live on how seamlessly MoistureShield complements Belgard® Pavers, firepit and outdoor kitchen for a complete backyard experience.  Learn more about Elevate HERE

NADRA Members, Regal ideas:

Award winning deck builder, Dr Decks, and co-host of the Vanilla Ice Project Wes Kain joined us in the Regal Ideas booth at the International Builder’s Show. It was great meeting so many new contractors. Regal ideas products raise the bar when it comes to safety and durability. Our products are made from high strength 100% pure aluminum alloys and engineered to resist the tests of time and weather and proven to outperform vinyl, composite, wood and steel materials.

It was a great show! We look forward to seeing you soon! Check out our DeckStars site to see where we will be on tour next!

NADRA Members, CAMO® Deck Fastening Systems:

The CAMO booth had an excellent turnout with quality conversations with both new and familiar faces. Every 15 minutes, attendees watched product demos, learning more about CAMO® DRIVE™, EdgeClips and EdgeXClips. Builders were able to try out the products themselves and hundreds entered to win a DRIVE while 15 walked away with a new tool! 

The CAMO DRIVE™ Stand-Up Tool features three end guides to fasten CAMO Edge Screws, CAMO EdgeClips or traditional face screws—all using your own drill! CAMO DRIVE is a collated stand-up deck fastening tool designed to save contractors time, get them off their knees, and save their backs. Using the CAMO DRIVE tool can result in a deck installation that is 5X faster than other methods.  And, CAMO® EdgeClip® and EdgeXClip® revolutionize installation of grooved boards, either using CAMO DRIVE or their Never Miss Guide™ for hand-held fastening. Stay tuned for more innovation as warm weather approaches!

CAMO was a Day 2 Product Find at IBS by BUILDER Magazine!

NADRA Members, Feeney, Inc.:

The International Builders’ Show was a fantastic way to reconnect with our reps, dealers, and contractors. This year we debuted our brand new faux wood grain finish top rails for our DesignRail® aluminum railing system. Even our own reps were fooled into thinking it was wood! Our reps were also excited by our new DesignRail® Express program, cutting shipping down on select options to 5-7 days. 

Besides the new products, we connected with editors at LBM Journal and Professional Remodeler magazine, and had delightful visits with Chip Wade and Mike Holmes Jr., and  attended the #bestofsocialmedia awards which highlighted some fantastic contractors on social. Learn more at FeeneyInc.com

NADRA Members, FastenMaster:

This year was FastenMaster’s biggest showing ever at the IBS in Las Vegas.  New to our booth was an interactive framing corner which showed off the FrameFAST tool and all-new NLB Connector.  The FrameFAST system has now expanded from its original configuration which made truss-to-top plate connections easier.  It can now create a continuous load path from the truss down to the foundation using the same 6” FrameFAST screw by utilizing different tool heads.  The new NLB, or Non Load-Bearing Connector, combines a screw with floating sleeve for attaching partition walls – delivering lateral stability while allowing for truss movement above the wall. 

Over the three days of this show, our knowledgeable sales, marketing and technical teams engaged with many Pro customers, giving constant demonstrations and answering a variety of product application questions.  For our decking Pros, these demos included our FusionLOC demo deck, showing how to install faster by having collated clips and fasteners in one tool.

Another time-saving product enhancement was our new collated Cortex plugs, allowing the decking contractor to more quickly and precisely align the grain and color of our plugs to match the decking.  No doubt that the few thousand attendees who walked through our booth left with new knowledge of our time and money saving products, and a better sense of why FastenMaster remains Pro Driven. Learn more at FastenMaster.com.

NADRA Members, Trex:

Enter the Next Deckade of Outdoor Living with Trex

Trex delivered the total outdoor living package at IBS 2020!

Custom-Made, Prefabricated Railing Systems by AGS

Each year, in coordination with the International Builders Show (IBS), The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) sponsors The New American Home (TNAH). TNAH is a collection of ideas for the industry to take away demonstrating construction technology, design concepts, sustainable materials, energy efficiency, healthy home features and “housing performance” that can be replicated — in whole or in part — in housing built any place and in any price range.

AGS Stainless was proud to have been selected to participate in this amazing project.  Located in the very prestigious Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, a short drive to both the Orlando Convention Center and the Orlando International Airport. Lake Nona Golf & Country Club is a Tavistock Development and home to many International golf celebrities currently on the PGA tour.

Styled as “Pod Living”, so unused rooms can be closed off when not in use, this “Net Zero”, 11,000 square foot home is designed for comfortable living, both indoors and out. AGS Stainless was asked to design and then prefabricate the custom-made stainless rails which grace the homes upper and lower outdoor living spaces. To learn how prefabricated, custom rails by AGS Stainless can help to differentiate your next project go here: (https://vimeo.com/218488973)

Elegant Railing System by AGS Stainless

Elegant Railing System Seamlessly Connects Indoor/Outdoor Living at Award-Winning Island Retreat

The Railing Choice.

Choosing an AGS Stainless steel railing system added a luxurious, clean finish to the patio area. This nearly invisible railing system allows the surrounding natural beauty to be highlighted without distraction providing deck dwellers an ideal spot to enjoy the oceanfront views.

“The home has a very beautiful yet delicate overall feel to it,” explains Gavin Engler, AIA, Associate with the award-winning office of Carol A. Wilson Architect. “Very thin structural columns of the glazed façade help define its overall lightness, further accentuated by the fine material choices and minimalistic detailing throughout…including the railing system.” While the design team had never utilized an AGS Stainless railing system before this project, their initial apprehension quickly turned to delight as the Rainier® cable railing, featuring a flat stainless steel top rail, started coming together within the porch area.

“The railing was a very important design element so the screened-in porch felt as if it was an extension of the home’s gentle aesthetic,” adds Engler. Also it was essential to the homeowners and designers to optimize the views as seen while actually seated in the patio area. The thin cabling infill was the key. Engler stated, “It’s remarkable how they elegantly accented the thin vertical structural columns – then slyly fade into transparency when focus goes towards the breathtaking views.” Additionally, the sleek post profile blended in front of the porch-screen partitions perfectly. Sometimes considered a secondary design element, this project nicely exemplifies how railing systems should be anything but an afterthought as they quietly yet beautifully accent major design elements and bring spaces together into a overall cohesive look.

AGS Stainless, a highly respected company within the industry offers the Rainier® as one of its various stainless steel railing systems. These systems can be accompanied with wide array of options including: top hand railing and mounting post, powder coating and tempered glass infill – for a fully-customized railing system at an affordable cost.

With AGS Stainless, the overall design process is straightforward and simple: sketches and approximate dimensions are submitted; CAD drawings and all details of the railing system are created by a member of the AGS design team. Then an AGS railing expert works directly with the homeowner/contractor to make certain every detail is just right and to ensure prompt delivery with attentive service.

The Location. 

Located in Casco Bay, off the coast of Maine, is the relaxing Chebeague Island. On the southeast shore, the Mill’s family established their tranquil island retreat. The 2,600 square foot home set on two acres features a collection of main-floor living spaces that include an accommodating kitchen, dining, and master bedroom, all with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing a 180-degree view of natural seascape. Extending the overall living space is an inviting screened patio with impressive views of nearby Portland. This outdoor living area is well-appointed with a gas fireplace, ipe decking, and stainless steel railing system from AGS Stainless – elegant finishes which, differentiate this home as the recipient of the 2014 AIA-Maine Design Honor Award.

The Result. 

Both the homeowners and the design community were thrilled with the home’s appearance resulting in the coveted 2014 AIA-Maine Design Honor Award. As noted from the AIA-Maine award jury: “The project is very delicate and beautiful. It shows great control in the detailing without resorting to ornament, excess in materials, or overdesign…it is a pleasure to see.”

“Every AGS Stainless customer essentially has their own outsourced railing factory, complete with world-class welders and state-of-the-art fabrication machines ready to create a beautiful railing system specific for their project,” explains Kevin T. Harris, Director of Sales & Marketing at AGS Stainless. “Each railing system is prefabricated at our factory located in the Pacific Northwest ensuring that every individual nut, bolt and handrail fitting is just right! This allows the homeowner the opportunity to include the luxurious look of custom stainless steel railings at an overall expense lower than traditional custom-fabricated railing systems.”

Minneapolis Modern Dream Home, AGS Stainless, Inc.

Custom stainless rails seamlessly integrate interior and exterior spaces in Parade of Homes Masterpiece!

(Complete Project Case Study with images can be found here) Overlooking the scenic Minnehaha Creek sits one of the most unique and energy-efficient homes in the greater Minneapolis area. This 5,144 square foot home features elements such as: a glass bridge spanning two separate wings of the home, a two-story fireman’s pole, kids’ bedrooms with their own private lofts and a modern staircase with open risers. The home is also composed of structural insulated panels providing the best in energy efficiency, and was awarded the coveted “Dream Home” designation in the local Spring 2016 Parade of Homes tour. The award was the second for the environmentally-focused, Twin Cities-based building and remodeling firm Sustainable 9 Design + Build.

In the past, Sustainable 9 Design + Build utilized a local railing fabrication team to create custom railings for their homes. Increased new construction and remodeling activity happening throughout their Midwestern market backlogged those fabrication crews and caused them to demand premium prices. Time delays and increased costs simply were not an option on this custom home, so the Sustainable 9 team reached out to AGS Stainless.

“Before this project, we never considered the option of prefabricated railings – now I foresee us working with AGS Stainless on all our future remodeling and new construction projects,” explains Ryan Hanson, Partner at Sustainable 9 Design + Build. “The ease of installation, at nearly half the cost as custom fabricated railing and quick turnaround really helped us meet the project deadline and budget. Its modern aesthetic and overall high-quality look really resonated with potential homebuyers and existing customers too – so much so that we already have a few clients altering their existing remodeling projects to now include AGS Stainless railings.”

AGS’ Rainier cable railing with flat stainless steel top rail is showcased throughout the home, indoors and out. It’s even a feature of the “hiding forts” (lofts) within the kids’ bedrooms. “Cable railing was an ideal choice for those loft areas,” added Hanson. “It allowed the kids’ secret spots to not feel completely closed off from their bedrooms while still providing a level of safety in an elevated space.”

Another unique feature appreciated by kids both young-and-old is a two-story fireman’s pole. AGS Stainless designers worked closely with Sustainable 9 Design + Build to develop a custom locking access gate for this”transportation apparatus.” With the help of AGS’ Rainier cable railing, the project achieved an overall consistent look and feel that provides unobstructed views of all the natural beauty, both inside and out.

AGS Makes it Easy

Working AGS Stainless is straightforward and simple. They generate exact drawings and details for your project from initial approximate dimensions and photos submitted by the customer. Then, they work directly with the homeowner/contractor to make certain every detail is just right.”Each AGS Stainless railing system is designed and prefabricated at our facility located in the Pacific Northwest. Every individual nut, bolt and handrail fitting is just right.

Our unique process greatly reduces the labor expense normally associated with traditional custom-fabricated railing systems,” explains Kevin T. Harris, Director of Sales & Marketing at AGS Stainless. “This Minneapolis-area home perfectly depicts how Sustainable 9 Design + Build and every AGS Stainless customer essentially has their very own outsourced railing factory, complete with world-class welders and state-of-the-art fabrication machines to create a beautiful high quality railing system specific for their project.”

The Result  (View slideshow of photos)

In addition to the numerous compliments and customer inquiries regarding the railing system,the Sustainable 9 team was very impressed with how accurate and complete each railing section arrived to the job-site. “Initially, we had apprehension about ordering a customized railing system for a project sight-unseen but their team of designers – and overall customer service I might add – was absolutely great on guiding us through the installation which (Read on)

Alpine Meadows Cabin, AGS Stainless, Inc.

When an adventure-loving couple decided to build a second home in the mountains for hosting friends, grown children, and-someday- grandchildren, they enlisted California based Studio Bergtraun Architects to design it on a steep site in the Sierra Nevada’s near Lake Tahoe. The firm took cues from the owners’ active, family-focused lifestyle to create a highly customized house on a challenging terrain

Situated on a 23-degree slope that receives some of the region’s heaviest snows, the steelframe structure’s poured-in-place concrete-mat slab is pinned to the hill’s underlying granite. Lead architect Alex Bergtraun undertook a considerable study of the steep site to create a driveway with a less than 5 percent incline that would allow the clients to pull in easily and, after a long day of skiing, enter the mudroom without having to navigate stairs.

In order to accommodate different combinations of occupants, Bergtraun designed a two-level structure with a lower floor that can be closed off. There, built-in bunk beds (accessible via rock-climbing holds) and two bedrooms for the couple’s adult children flank a central family room. Upstairs, the main floor contains the master suite and kitchen, living, and dining areas. A concrete bridge extending off the kitchen provides a small patio for grilling but requires minimal snow shoveling. (Thanks to the installation of climbing hooks on the edge, it also provides a platform for rappelling down to the creek below the house.)

“When it’s just the two owners, they can close off the lower section and heat only their area,” says the architect, “but in the future, when the whole family is present, the lower floor can become a space for younger generations to bond.”

LED uplights throughout the house reflect warm tones from the Douglas fir ceilings, while hot-rolled steel on the fireplace and cabinets provides contrasting texture. Custom furnishings continue the rustic-and-industrial theme: Bergtraun built an extra-long dining table with a galvanized-steel top, large industrial wheels, and leftover glulam.

“The clients wanted to make this a place that was really their own,” says Bergtraun. “It’s already become a hub of activity for family and friends, and it will be for years to come.”

Increasing project profitability through the use of custom-made, pre-fabricated stainless steel railing systems:

NADRA member manufacturer AGS Stainless will be delivering this year’s Key Note presentation; “Increasing project profitability through the use of custom-made, pre-fabricated stainless steel railing systems”. Although undeniably gorgeous, most builders shy away from recommending stainless steel railings to their clients. The challenge is that adding a stainless steel railing system to a home often requires the builder to subcontract the railings to a local metal fabricator, substantially increasing project costs. This presentation will include a discussion of how pre-fab railings work, as well as recommendations on when and where to suggest pre-fab rails to your clients. Included in this presentation will be a panel discussion with some remodelers who will discuss how and when they have incorporated pre-fab stainless steel rails into their interior and exterior projects.

We have secured a block of rooms at The Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort

The resort features a waterfront hotel, full-service spa, high-tech meeting spaces and the excitement of casino nightlife with table games, slots, dedicated Keno and Poker rooms plus much more!
