Eco Building Products Codifies Change In The Sandy Rebuild
ECOB Showcases Defensive Homes via the 2014 Eco Home Tour in Late May
VISTA, Calif., April 30, 2014
VISTA, Calif., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCQB: ECOB) announced today that the Company's vision in codifying change
goes above and beyond the development and manufacturing of the world's premier
lumber defense formulation, Eco Red Shield™. With sights set on raising the
bar on many facets of construction including lateral strength in engineering,
Team Eco will soon showcase the implementation of change in the Building
Industry with two Eco Home™ models, one in Breezy Point, NY and the other on
the Jersey Shore located in Sea Bright.
ECOB's strategic efforts in the Sandy Rebuild region are aimed at showcasing
the implementation of change in a day and age in which defensive building
practices are in high demand resultant of climate change and the environment
in which we live, work and sleep. ECOB engineered several defensive models
last year which were stalled during the lengthy approval process and hard
winter. Today, both models are now underway in this highly impacted region as
contractors with cabin fever are showing up in this spring run ready to build
anything after their long, cold, wet winter.
"The realities of what's happening in this rebuild are further complicated
when we see buildings coming out of the ground in areas that had 48" of water,
with 30" concrete walls and structural floor members that could be subjected
to future flooding, when the manufacturer's product guides state that the
products should not be subjected to constant wetting since the core of that
lumber is glued like particle board," stated Steve Conboy, President/CEO, Eco
Building Products, Inc. Eco Home in New Jersey is built on concrete walls that
are 108" above flood tide, which will prove to keep this defensive home safe
from rising tides and high winds in the event of a future super storm. The Eco
Home in Breezy Point, New York will be the first house in this region built on
telescoping steel columns 48" above flood tides. This house should be the most
defensive home the U.S. has ever seen, and we will demonstrate to architects
and engineers during our Eco Home Tour later this month that buildings
protected from fire, and water intrusion do not have to increase the cost over
traditional methodologies. ECOB strives to deliver these engineering values
and methodologies, and will demonstrate brick and mortar costs during our
upcoming home tour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFoJ535EsIA
As the creator and leader in defensive building practices, we took a proactive
approach deciding to not sit back and watch construction in the Sandy Rebuild
with building products specified by architects and engineers that no longer
provide the required protection and sustainability in these areas; many of
which will be subjected to the force and resulting damages commonly associated
with super storms. Team Eco's goal is simple – create defensive models for
people to touch and feel, that display our [defensive building practices]
principles in living form, that in most cases does not have to raise the cost
beyond reach. At ECOB, we understand change is not easy for builders and
contractors to embrace, so we are going the extra mile right now to prove out
that Sandy Victims who purchase the complete package from The Home Depot [the
Costco of building materials] can build defensively for similar costs of
standard building materials. "When you package everything from appliances,
roofing, cabinets, finishes and the details, essentially everything that goes
into a house from The Home Depot, the savings experienced in the majority of
the products will be more than it costs to build with Eco Red Shield vs. raw
lumber; Eco Disaster Break vs. tar paper; and steel columns which last forever
vs. wooden poles that do not," stated Conboy.
On the same front, Team Eco is looking to support New York's Mayor, Bill de
Blasio, with respect to his renewed commitment in the Sandy Rebuild, with high
hopes that his staff will in fact take the time to come out and touch and feel
our defensive Eco Home in Breezy Point, NY.
ECOB's President & CEO, being a native New Yorker, desires to meet with Mayor
de Blasio in an effort to support this joint Sandy Rebuild.
Mr. Conboy will be speaking at the 20th Annual World Trade Conference 2014 in
May, promoting international trade. http://www.worldtradeconference-ie.us/
Mr. Conboy's efforts will be directed at teaching the world how we rebuild
after a disaster like Sandy, delivering a comprehensive plan that can support
sustainable rebuild, brick and mortar costs, while simultaneously creating
factory-type jobs. Our rebuild supports a much bigger vision when the
Government and Private Sector join forces for building American style homes in
factories for export," says Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building
