ProBuilder.com: The Best Of PCBC: 2017 Parade Of Products
Held by PCBC, the largest home building trade show on the West Coast, the Parade of Products competition honors the best in new product development.
A panel of judges consisting of engineers, designers, product curators, and architects chose 15 winners based on innovation, practical application, and design. All the products have been on the market for less than 18 months, or will be commercially available by the fall.
This year’s Parade of Products features a self-cleaning toilet, stone fence, rollable fur strip, building seal roof deck insulation, smart meter, and automated parking garage. A few new apps also made the cut, including an app-controlled shower, and a tool that connects builders with skilled labor.
