Congratulations to our 2022 Best of IBS™ Awards Winners
With over 200 entries, our 24 industry and media judges considered the products' innovation, functionality, design and builder/consumer friendliness to make this list.
Check out why our winners wowed the judges!
Here's what the judges had to say about our Best in Show winner:
“Given the shortage of skilled masons, and the demand for realistic stone for both interior and exterior use, manufacturers have been scrambling to develop an authentic looking, easy to install, jobsite friendly "stone" siding product. In this judge's opinion, Evolve Stone checks all the boxes. It looks and feels like real stone. It is easily installable with a nail gun and finish nails. It cuts like wood, and is impervious to moisture. A beautiful product that, provided the price is right and is readily available, will likely be a big hit. This is a true game-changing product."
"Evolve Stone is not only a unique and innovative product but solves a big issue of moisture intrusion and meets new code requirements with minimum labor. It is extremely user friendly for all skill types from DIY to professionals."
