Home Building 360: Product Suppliers Expect Housing Recovery to be Long, Slow

GREENER SOLUTIONS: ClimateMaster's Air Handler Series is among the new products this supplier of geothermal heat pump systems has introduced this year for both the new construction and retrofit markets.

ADDED VALUE: DaVinci Roofscapes' new Bellaforte Series comes with a 175-mile-per-hour wind rating, and uses 25% less material than triple-laminate architectural tile.

BROADER REACH: Fypon, which makes molded millwork, trim and columns, has held its ground during the recession by maintaining the industry's largest in-stock levels of polyurethane parts.

MORE UTILITY: ILevel's new TJI 560D Series I-Joists feature greater depth (up to 24 inches) and are suitable for use in one-hour, single-layer fire separations and for heavier loads like those in multifamily and commercial structures.

KEEPING ITS LINES FRESH: Over the past 18 months, Kohler has rolled out some 2,000 new items, including its Accord shower module with seat.
