Propex. A new type of roofing underlayment is coming to market. The Opus Roof Blanket is constructed of a polypropylene fabric designed to replace roofing felt and plastic sheeting underlayment on steep-slope roofing. New technologies make the material’s surface area more slip-resistant than other materials. It easily accepts chalk lines, and the tan color keeps roofs cooler even on hot days. 800.621.1273. www.propex.com.
ScreenTight. The MiniTrack Extruded Aluminum Porch Screening System features an ultra-low-profile system ideal for second-floor or higher porch applications. The system can be designed to blends with any housing style without visible obstructions to create a seamless transition. MiniTrack offers unlimited trim possibilities, the maker says, and can be installed from inside or outside the porch area. Fasteners for the system are also hidden, adding to the aesthetic appeal. 800.768.7325. www.screentight.com.
Versatex. In partnership with FastenMaster, the maker has introduced the Cortex Concealed Fastening System. The process uses a proprietary trim screw and a combination setting tool/drive bit that countersinks the fastener into the PVC trim, creating space above the fastener for a Cortex PVC plug. The Cortex system eliminates caulking, sanding, and painting to hide fastener holes. The plugs are made from the same material as the trim, can mimic smooth or wood grain surfaces, are fully paintable, and warranted for the life of the trim. The FastenMaster Cortex Concealed Fastening System is available in 250 lineal foot and 750 lineal foot packages. 724.857.1171. www.versatex.com.
