Mighty Dog Roofing Seminar Stage
The Home Show has assembled a team of experts who will explore and explain the latest resilient techniques for roofs. New residential building codes passed last year are the strongest in the gulf coast and will prevent the domino effect of damage associated with water penetration inside the home. In time, this will attract insurance carriers back to our market. In addition, grants from the Louisiana Department of Insurance and above code programs like Fortified Roof provide consumers with additional safety and discounts.

YOU NOW HAVE A CHOICE. Metal for the Price of Wood.
Come see a sample model of a two-story, steel-built home presented by Dominion, USA, Inc. This Metairie-based company is a new vendor in the Show and is revolutionizing the way structures are built by using innovative metal solutions. Starting with engineers working on a 3D plan of a house/building, work turns to the onsite Dominion steel mill, where thin sheets of coiled, U.S.-made, recycled, galvanized steel are molded and cut following the 3D plans. The pieces are 2x4, 2x6 or trusses, which become walls, windows, and other features such as stairs. A 2500 sq ft. home, once the steel is cut and prefabricated, can be built in 1 to 1.5 days. A two-story structure will take about 2.5 days. You can view the Dominion steel home at Booth #155.
