Rapid remodeling product showcase

No in-person IBS? No problem. We count down some of the most innovative products manufacturers have introduced to us this year, from a touch-control shower head or quick fix wall patch for drywall holes, and more.

This week's video is going to be a rapid fire showcase of four products: three that manufacturers have gone out of there way to send me samples of during quarantine—Rapid Wall Repair Patches by DAP (which I do a how-to-use demonstration); new products Deckorators intended to show off at the DeckExpo (including its entry-level decking composite Trailhead, which is expected to average a retail price of $2 per square foot); and American Standard's Spectra Plus Touch 4-function shower head—and one new tile product I'm particularly excited about though don't have any physical samples of Bios a new tile line from Casalgrande Padana that utilizes Hydrotec technology to self-clean.

Watch the video below for a rapid-fire, four-product round-up. Love video content? See other videos from The Weekly here
