BUILDING MATERIALS : : 1ST AZEK FINISH GRADE TRIM Installing trim can be time- consuming, but with AZEK's new Finish Grade Trim, there are no nail holes to fill and sand, and no painting required for moisture protection. The two-part system consists of base trim that is easily face-nailed, and cover trim that has a nailing flange that hides fasteners. We like this new product for its ease of installation, the efficiency it affords and its 25- year limited warranty. W W W.

W W W.CALIBAMBOO.COM DOORS+WINDOWS : : 1ST MILGARD WINDOWS AND DOORS ESSENCE SERIES WOOD WINDOWS Wood and fiberglass construction in Milgard's latest window introduction offers durability and efficiency, as well as beauty. Milgard's engineered hidden integrated moisture weep system inside the exterior fiberglass frame prevents moisture from penetrating to the wood interior. W W W.PRO.MILGARD.COM BUILDING MATERIALS : : 2ND LOCTITE POWER GRAB ALL-PURPOSE CLEAR CONSTRUCTION ADHESIVE An adhesive that really works is a godsend. Loctite's new construction adhesive bonds various building materials such as wood, drywall, concrete and rigid plastic, instantly holds without the need for bracing or nailing, and can be repositioned for up to 15 minutes. Another time-saver, Power Grab dries clear, eliminating the need for touch-up painting. W W W.LOCTITEPRODUCTS.COM ENERGY EFFICIENCY : : 2ND RHEEM RESIDENTIAL GAS WATER HEATER XR90 SERIES Rheem's XR90 Extreme Recovery gas water heater heats water 42% faster and cost 17% less to operate than a standard 50-gallon gas water heater. The XR90 produces three times the amount of hot water in an hour than what the tank actually holds. Once the initial supply of hot water is depleted, the unit can be ready with 90 gallons of available hot water within 29 minutes. W W W.RHEEM.COM DECKS+RAILINGS : : 2ND AZEK IN-DECK STORAGE KIT AZEK's In-Deck Storage Kit provides a dry place to store cushions, umbrellas and other deck items—that is conveniently concealed within the deck.
