America's Architect

Architect Robert Adler is helping lead the way towards building better wood-framed homes due in part to his recognition that raw lumber cannot handle what climate change storms can and have delivered.

Eco is diligently working toward bringing cost-effective fire protection to residential homes; a first in the Lumber Industry.

Growing Demand for Eco Red

2015-01-14

It’s cold and wet in the northeast as old man Winter is really kicking into gear. As you drive around NY & NJ, you will see Eco Red houses popping up from the tip of Long Island (NY) to the Jersey Shore. The demand is growing as consumers and builders are being educated as to why raw lumber needs to be defended against the elements, especially when your home or customer's home is being built during this wet, cold winter - slowing the framing pace - making your lumber even wetter and more vulnerable to mold. This eco-friendly defensive lumber is now readily available in the big box and via wholesale lumber distribution, making it simplistic for any builder or lumber yard to offer the best lumber in America; the only lumber with a warranty.

In an effort to keep folks informed we've created a blog page so that I can tell it like it is - and hopefully educate people a little bit about our humanitarian projects, our products, the building process and with lumber in general.

I also will talk about some of the pitfalls new homebuyers face.  I've been in the lumber business my entire life and have a vast knowledge of how this industry has changed in the last 35 years.  We are here to change it once again with our revolutionary product: Eco Red Shield™ protective coating - developed specifically for today's lumber.
