Every year in January, tens of thousands of builders, contractors, manufacturers, designers, and everyone else who has anything to do with homes—from what they're made of to what's inside them—gather for the International Builder's Show. It might just be our favorite time of year.
Our editors got together after returning from this year's show to assemble a list of the best and the brightest. Here you will find building materials and products to make deck construction a snap. Many of these are so new they're not yet on the market; contact manufacturers directly for availability dates.
