Belgard® Hardscapes will showcase its enhanced line of the Elements Outdoor Living Collection and launch Oldcastle’s new Artisan Masonry Stone Thin Veneers product line at NAHB International Builder’s Show (IBS) 2015 January 20-22 in Las Vegas.
The Belgard Hardscapes booth (P22) showcases Oldcastle and Belgard’s comprehensive masonry and hardscape product offerings as a solution for both builders and landscape/masonry contractors. The 30 foot by 50 foot outdoor booth features a small home and garage façade, which features permeable pavers, tandem walls and column kits.
“We focused on creating a booth that incorporates many of our new products and signature features to show attendees the ample options available to our customers when creating their ultimate outdoor space,” O’Neill said.
The booth’s patio vignette highlights Belgard’s newest addition to the Elements Outdoor Living Collection, the Bordeaux Series. Combining sleek contemporary styling and rustic charm, the series blends the stacked-stone appearance of Lamina® Stone with the limestone accents ofCordova Stone™. The booth includes coordinating pieces of a grill island, wood boxes and a brick oven. All elements are designed to coordinate with Belgard pavers and walls for an overall cohesive look, allowing homeowners to create a custom look for their outdoor space.
“Our Elements Collection is made up of pre-built modular hardscape features that make creating an outdoor living space easier and more affordable,” O’Neill said. “We’re predicting more of an emphasis on outdoor renovation in 2015, and these outdoor kitchen units, brick ovens, fireplaces, fire pits, water features and other decorative pieces make for perfect updates to your outdoor entertaining space.”
Oldcastle, Belgard’s parent company, designed the new line of Artisan Masonry Stone Veneersfor tight dimensional tolerance, which reduces installation time and cost. The light-weight product may be used for non-load bearing applications and does not require a footing. This allows the line to complement other cladding options and combine with brick, natural stone or fiber cement for both exterior and interior applications. Artisan Masonry Stone Thin Veneers offer multiple styles and sizes suitable for residential, commercial and institutional applications, currently including three color options and one texture option, with more planned for the future.
“Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers is an example of Oldcastle creating products that build upon the classic benefits of masonry with modern features,” said Ken O’Neill, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Belgard Hardscapes. “The new line of light-weight Thin Veneers perfectly complements the existing full-depth veneers, while remaining durable and easy to install and maintain.”
