Last month in this space, I reviewed a series of market projections for 2014 from Harvard University as well as the industry’s leading associations.
OSI's colormatching tools, the EPA, and the National Tile Roofing Manfacturer's Associations websites are reviewed here, among others.
OSI takes the guesswork out of matching siding with color sealants using the updated Color Cross Reference Index and the Color Matching System-Color Selector. The system, located at www.osisealants.com/ccr/search.asp, provides more than 480 OSI color matches for more than 140 siding colors from most major manufacturers.
For the latest on the lead notification legislation, visit the EPA’s website, www.epa.gov/lead. It features a full explanation of what is required of remodelers after June 1, 1999, as well as up-to-date information on proposed legislation.
To better assist contractors, the National Tile Roofing Manufacturers Association’s website, www.ntrma.com, has included information and resources on proper installation techniques and technical bulletins for tile roofs. The site is continually updated with the latest news on products, code issues, testing and general news.
