Alside® to Make Debut at IBSx Virtual Experience

Labor- and Time-Saving Solutions to be Displayed in Booth

CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH – Alside®, a leading manufacturer of exterior building products, announced today they’ll exhibit for the first time at the premier event of the residential construction industry, the 2021 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBSx) Virtual Experience Feb. 9-12.

“Alside offers builders and remodelers industry leading products that are easy to install and require less laborers, resulting in profitability and productivity improvements,” said Shawn Hardy, senior vice president, Alside. “By exhibiting, everyone can see firsthand our newest innovations and how our products deliver high-end aesthetics, require minimal maintenance and create value through cost reductions.”

What’s New

In its virtual booth, Alside will showcase the Mezzo Full-Frame Replacement System, which features Trimworks® with SwiftLock® Technology. Mezzo already meets future ENERGY STAR® performance standards and is a unique solution designed to decrease the premium price on full-frame replacement window installations. Three key parts of the system include:

Improper replacement of vinyl windows can generate service calls resulting from water intrusion, drive up costs and result in poor-quality work that must be redone. Mezzo with Trimworks can save up to 20-40 minutes of installation time per window—reducing waste materials and eliminating the need for special equipment, training or time-consuming cutting and mitering. The prefabricated trim simply snaps on to the newly installed window frame. More windows can be installed per day, which means revenue and profitability increases as well. Depending on the desired look, installation time can be reduced between three to seven hours for every 10 windows installed.

Additionally, the ASCEND® Composite Cladding System will be highlighted in the booth. ASCEND is a first-of-its kind solution that allows for quicker and easier installation than that of fiber cement, engineered wood and other composite panels. It doesn’t require specialized equipment and can be installed by fewer laborers. As a result, ASCEND provides the potential for at least a 10 percent lower total installed cost. It is available in 20 virtually maintenance-free colors and is backed by a lifetime limited warranty.
