Andersen Windows’ Architectural Collection combines two Andersen product lines into one collection.

Milgard Windows & Doors expanded its Style Line Series with the addition of awning and casement style vinyl window.

Jeld-Wen’s Custom Wood Double-Hung Window line offers several enhancements for convenience, safety, and design purposes.

With a drying time of only five minutes, it is also tinted for better visibility during application.

A textured finish of the glass tops hides fingerprints, smudges, and stains.

The Metallika glass tile collection from Surfaces Inc. combines the appearance of pure aluminum transformed in patterns and color combinations with stone and glass.

The two-sided fireplace combines contemporary design with outdoor living.

Accessory options include a variety of interior panel styles, screens, andirons, and glass media colors.

The newly formulated DAP 3.0 sealants are paintable and water resistant 30 minutes after application.

Turn an outdoor space into an all-weather lifestyle and entertainment area using the Ziptrack track-guided blind system.

The 16-Gauge Angled Li-ion Cordless Finish Nailing System weighs 4.5 pounds and reaches tough corners and tight spaces while minimizing user fatigue.

Transform underutilized space under an elevated deck into dry storage space with the UnderDeck System.

Being recognized for an industry award instills confidence and credibility in you and your business. Ultimately, the award-winning projects completed by your firm could have a trickle-down effect to your bottom line.

With form at the forefront of your client’s thinking, it’s important that function be of equal standing in the overall design.

The Wills Company snares the top honor for this Nashville outdoor living space

Millions of American homes will be retrofitted in the coming years to increase energy efficiency, install green features, and add upgrades. When retrofit activities account for and address potential indoor air quality concerns, this work can lower utility costs and improve indoor air quality at the same time.

I recently was a judge that reviewed hundreds of awards entries in a day in a half. It was a great experience, and I took away some learned lessons. I wanted to share with you some of my insights from that experience to help you prepare your entries to win more awards.

Thinking long term is not an option. Your clients want you to dream, and your team wants you to begin to dream again.
