Fibo Wall panels

Two years ago Fibo debutted wall panels for tub and shower surrounds that look like concrete, marble, and even tile with grout lines. Now the Norwegian company has increased distribution in the U.S. and is bringing in its kitchen backsplash lineup in 20 varieties. Cracked Cement is Fibos No. 1 bath surround seller. These are watertight panels guaranteed not to fade for 15 years. Can you find the seam? #ibs2020 #probuilder #showvillage2020

Housing starts are robust and I've heard several builders and suppliers comment that building products addressing the tight availability of skilled labor with easy installs for a crew may be helping the industry stay at those levels. Nudura has one such product for insulating basements. Homega are 4 x 8 molded insulation panels with strapping strips. Just fasten the panels with mechanical anchors directly to the concrete wall. Drywall or whatever finish is fastened to the furring strips. Eliminates framing and installing batt or foam insulation. Also Nudura is helping builders achieve net zero (R-30) with SIP panels, sporting wider web to accommodate more concrete and thicker foam boards (increased from 2.5 inches to about 4).
