Style, function and efficiency are hot topics in new home products

created at: 2010/02/17

Last month, thousands of home builders, remodelers and architects converged in Las Vegas for the 2010 International Builders Show. The show floor was packed with manufacturers and service providers eagerly showing off their wares, and Marvin sent home improvement pro and Today Show contributor Lou Manfredini around to find some of the best.

In this video report, Lou introduces us to a few innovative and interesting products for the home, including:

  • DuPont’s new roof liner, a replacement for tar paper
  • Corian countertops, available in several new styles, including metallic finishes
  • Leviton’s new dimmer that actually works for dimming compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Marvin’s "wall of windows," the new Ultimate Lift and Slide Door

You can see more of Lou's videos on our YouTube channel, and you'll find more coverage from this year's Builders Show here (it's not all about Marvin!).
