Updated: Mar 12

Design & Construction Week sets the trends for the future of home-building, and this year’s event featured the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). This is the largest annual gathering of residential construction and design industry professionals. Exhibitors launch hundreds of new products and services, and visitors attend education sessions, workshops and demonstrations.

Design & Construction Week was held February 27-29, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s a review of some of the innovative products on display.

Deckorators Privacy Screen

The Deckorators Privacy Screen system allows homeowners to introduce both design elements and seclusion to outdoor living spaces by mixing and matching screens, slats and decking. The new, customizable system is easy to install and versatile, making it a standout product in the industry.

Deck2Wall Spacers

The deck-ledger connection is notoriously susceptible to rot, which can dangerously affect the stability and support of the deck. Deck2wall Spacers help prevent rot from occurring by separating the ledger from the supporting structure, providing a path for water and debris to flow harmlessly through the assembly, while promoting circulation and drying. Stacked washers have often been used as spacers over lag bolts, but Deck2wall Spacers have attachment holes to keep them in perfect alignment for faster and easier installation. They offer more bearing surface than washers for better load distribution, and the plastic spacers are non-corrosive. Plus, the one-piece design and installation method provide superior waterproofing. Deck2Wall Spacers also work as a long-lasting solution for attaching shade structures, posts, stair stringers, landings, built-up beams or mechanical equipment. Made in the USA and available in two sizes, the spacers are injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene.

allergenic, and maintenance-free while providing even heat, without any hot or cold spots where installed.
