Three must-see products at PCBC next week

We are counting down the days until the 2014 PCBC in San Francisco! Year after year, PCBC features some of America’s most prominent residential builders, developers, architects, building scientists, lenders, investors, marketers and product manufacturers. It also has become the go-to conference for thought leadership in green building.

Earlier this week, PCBC announced the winners of its Parade of Products (POP @ PCBC) Awards. The winning products were selected based on innovation and new product development in the homebuilding industry. You can view the full list of winners by visiting PCBC.com, but here are a few of our favorites:

“L7 Flashing is a high-performance solution to flashing electrical boxes, vents, and other through-wall penetrations.

StoCorp — StoGuard
StoGuard is a fluid applied weather barrier that is easy for contractors to install. StoGuard can be sprayed on or applied with a roller – a similar process to painting – and requires no special training, reducing the risk of improper installation which can lead to moisture intrusion problems. Unlike some solvent-based building materials, StoGuard has low VOCs and complies with US EPA and South Coast AQMD emission standards for architectural coatings. StoGuard is fully adhered without a mechanical attachment, meaning it does not require the use of staples, nails, or other means of attachment to adhere to the wall. StoGuard is energy efficient and helps prevent air leakage, thus reducing energy costs, and qualifies for the following LEED credits – Materials & Resources (MR) Credit 1.1 and 1.2.

Carrier Corporation — Carrier® Comfort™ Series ERV
The Comfort Series ERV leverages a streamlined, two-duct connection to offer a more straightforward installation process than traditional four-duct technology. In addition, the Comfort Series ERV does not require a separate wall control, allowing for easy integration into Carrier home systems. The unit’s small cabinet dimensions make the product more compact than others on the market, a benefit for today’s newly constructed homes. Contractors can simply connect the unit to the home’s furnace or the ductwork, eliminating the need to make additional room for a bulky four-duct ERV unit and its extra duct connections.
