2018 IBS & KBIS
It’s another Builder’s/Kitchen & Bath show in the rearview mirror. The aisles were crowded and the vibe was positive. Josh and I hit the floor hard… We walked a lot miles, visited a bunch of booths, shook a lot of hands, and drank just one beer each;) But as usual, this show was all about amazing tools and innovative products. Here are some of our favorites.
LP Long Panels
LP just introduced a new cedar textured SmartSide Panel. It has no grooves and is intended for use on board & batten projects. The stand-out feature is the size, 16-ft. x 16-in. The advantages of longer panels are obvious: less conspicuous horizontal seams on the wall. Of course you may need an extra set of hands to handle these beasts on a super windy day. Ask your lumberyard about the LP 38 Series Vertical Siding or find out more here.
