Fiberon Decking Announces Top Three Winning Outdoor Living Space Designs from FiberPRO Photo Contest


New London, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Building an outdoor living space that suits the exact needs of an individual requires critical thinking and creativity. The deck builders who employ Fiberons FiberPRO services understand how to exceed their clients standards and build outdoor living space masterpieces.

Judged by social media users, the three winners are Buz Gardiner of Gardiner Construction, Inc., Robert Shaw of Colorado Deck and Framing, and Ivana Biela of Echelon Custom Homes.

These three winning photos represent quality craftsmanship. Using durable, elegant, and environmentally friendly materials, these home improvement specialists have created remarkable decking products that are equally beautiful and functional.

In this way, the winners not only create quality work, but they also fulfill the unique needs of their clients. The third-place winner, for example, consists of a two-story design that promotes recreation and rest with a deck that enables swimming in the pool and reading on the balcony.

According to Fiberons Director of Marketing Communications, Edie Kello, all three winners embody the best parts of life.

Our first-place winner, Buz Gardiner, designed a rounded deck that creates a special space, conducive to both social get-togethers and alone time. Simply look at the design, and you can see yourself doing anything you want out there, a dance floor or a place for solitude or meditation. Thats what Fiberon FiberPROs create for their clients.

With the voting responsibility placed in Facebook and Twitter users hands, fans of Fiberon cast their ballots for a variety of reasons. From design elements to the inclusion of recreational accessories, the comments centered on any number of elements.

With this free-for-all voting approach, Fiberons VP of marketing, Shellie Sellards discusses how the FiberPRO Photo Contest ended up being a close call.

Just a few votes separated the three winners. Only 27 Facebook Likes came between the first- and second-place winners. It could have gone either way, especially since voters particularly enjoyed the high output fire pit centered in Robert Shaws creation. Even though it took second-place, this outdoor living space easily could have won first-place.

With National Enjoy Your Deck Day not far off on June 7, this photo contest should give more than a few ideas on how to celebrate. To find out more about this contest and the upcoming deck day celebration, visit Fiberons website at http://www.fiberondecking.com.

Priority Energy Receives Honorable Mention by the Department of Energy for Their Energy Efficiency Services and Products Utilized in the Winning Builders Challenge Home


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 15, 2013

Priority Energy was honored last week for their energy efficiency contributions to the winning U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Builders Challenge Award home. The Builders Challenge Award is designed to recognize builders for their use of innovative energy efficiency measures in their new construction. Priority Energy worked closely with the Illinois builder to design and implement their high performance, cost effective products that contributed to the house’s winning results.

Priority Energy, the long time energy efficiency partner of StreetScape Development in Libertyville, IL, helped the builder create this outstanding home that uses 37% less energy and emits 33% less off-gasses than a home built according to IECC 2012 code specifications alone. In economic terms, this means the home’s annual utility costs will be nearly $ 1000 less than a comparable new home. In addition to all this, the durability, indoor air quality and overall comfort of the home will be greatly enhanced.

“We are big believers in the DOE’s Challenge Home concept,” said Robert Schildgen, owner and CEO of Chicago-based Priority Energy. “The whole point of the program is to identify ways to bring high performance homes to the market in a more cost effective manner. StreetScape Development has been building Energy Star-rated homes for the past few years; the Builders Challenge home was a natural next-step for them and we were thrilled to help.”

Priority Energy provided the initial mechanical sizing, (Manual J, D, and S), and Energy Modeling for the design of the Challenge Home. During and after construction they conducted performance tests for IECC code compliance, Energy Star 3.0 and a HERS rating. In addition, the following Priority Energy products were utilized to attain the award-winning, high performance results:
