Homebuilders can save time and money on sustainably manufactured decking and railing materials as Fiberon extends reach in the new residential construction market
(Denver – Dec. 7, 2022) Fiberon, a leading U.S. manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing and cladding, today announced a partnership with HomeSphere, a platform connecting building product manufacturers to 2,700+ homebuilders who collectively construct more homes than the top five public homebuilders combined.
While Fiberon is already immersed in the remodeler market, their relationship with HomeSphere extends their reach into the new residential construction market. And, with current lumber supply and cost concerns, Fiberon offers an affordable, more sustainable alternative to natural wood.
“Fiberon products are an excellent choice for decking, railing and cladding in new construction,” said HomeSphere president and CEO Greg Schwarzer. “They offer the warmth and beauty of natural wood, without the maintenance and price. We are proud to partner with them and bring their products to our HomeSphere builders, saving time and costs for builders now, and future homeowners later.”
Fiberon composites are manufactured using increased sustainable processes, and their polyethylene decking products contain a minimum of 94% recycled content. Annually, Fiberon products use approximately one hundred million pounds of recycled plastic on average. And by using recycled wood in place of new wood in their deck boards, Fiberon is helping to avoid the destruction of up to one million trees.
Products are available in a wide range of colors, styles and price points and include industry-leading stain, fade and performance warranties. All PE composite decking product lines, PVC decking product lines, railing product lines, and Wildwood composite cladding are eligible for rebate.
“Fiberon is very excited to partner with HomeSphere and for the opportunity to work with their network of more than 2,700 builders,” said Chris Hayn, vice president of sales for Fiberon. “With the cost of building materials rising, homebuilders who want to use high quality products can benefit from choosing Fiberon and HomeSphere.”
HomeSphere’s partnerships with well-respected brands give its 2,700+ single-family and multifamily builders access to an unprecedented catalog of leading-edge materials and technologies. Its platform directly connects builders to manufacturers like Fiberon so that they can construct functional, modern homes with less friction and cost.
Established in 1999, HomeSphere connects local and regional homebuilders to exclusive rebate offerings. HomeSphere’s builder network constructs and closes more than 250,000 new homes and units per year, making it the largest homebuilding group in the country by volume.
