Windfall now offers a lighter and more flexible ¼” panel, with the same visual attributes as its ¾” product. These panels are manufactured in the U.S., using solid and glue-laminated beams and lumber reclaimed from deconstructed industrial, agricultural and residential buildings in the Pacific Northwest. Perfect for interior paneling and casework, these panels show characteristic nail holes, staining, finger joints and other reclaimed marks, and come in a variety of stains and finishes.

Leaks frequently occur in and around homes in places where temperature fluctuations, moisture, humidity and damaging UV rays take their toll. Using Supreme Paintable to prevent gaps and cracks from reforming saves energy over the long term. Unlike acrylic caulk, 100 percent silicone caulk stays permanently flexible, shrink-proof, crack-proof and waterproof. This low-VOC product is made in the U.S., and comes in shipping boxes with up to 46 percent recycled content.

This housewrap offers builders the optimal balance of air, water and thermal protection, all in one roll. ThermaWrap R5.0 provides continuous exterior insulation, while reducing thermal bridging through exterior walls. It also lowers energy costs by reducing air leakage, keeping cavity insulation dry and performing at its installed R-value. At the same time, breathability helps prevent mold and water damage, and improves air quality. Made in the U.S. with 20 percent pre-consumer, recycled polyolefin, ThermaWrap R5.0 contains no added fire-retardant chemicals.
