Polyurethane Helps Bring Resiliency Home
As extreme weather becomes more common and seismic events continue to threaten many areas of the globe, resiliency has become a watchword for those in the building and construction industries. Resilient design and construction can help structures withstand or minimize the effects of hurricane-force winds, heavy flooding, and even earthquakes.
As the International Builders Show opens today in Orlando, FL, resiliency will be on the minds of many attendees. From better roofing materials to stronger bonds for structural components, polyurethane has an important role to play in making homes and other structures not only more energy-efficient, but also better able to withstand the unpredictable forces of nature.
