Amid the dozens of bathtup overlay companies, tool shed builders and assorted specialty sales companies (need a new cell phone case?) you’ll find some intriguing booths at this year’s Louisville Home Garden and Remodeling show which starts today.
I’ll have more in-depth stories in the next several weeks but a few companies that caught my eye might be interest to you as well.
- Classic Metal Roofing Systems of Kentuckian: If you’re planning to stay in your current home for the long term, you should consider a metal roof which is longer lasting, more eco-friendly and now available in a larger variety of styles.
- Enercept: As energy costs increase having your home insulated becomes a bigger and bigger factor. SIP constructed buildings are becoming more common on the residential side and should be considered by anyone in Louisville thinking about building a new home.
- A.N. Roth Insulation Services: Spray foam insulation isn’t new but Airkrete is and it’s a greener product that is sure to gain market share as more people hear about its benefits.
- Fireplace Distributors Inc.: Not all fireplaces are created equally. To ensure the safety of you and your loved ones, make sure your is a direct vent fireplace that removes all the harmful gases completely from your home.
There’s much, much more (solar power, quartz counter-tops, geothermal, etc.) but this will give you a head start if you’re heading out to the event.
I’m hoping to have some subject-matter experts write for LouisvilleHomesBlog.com in the coming weeks to further explain some of the new technology that is now available. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us.
