Brand Talk: 5 Projects for Higher Sales This Fall

Business-Building Tips: By Weyerhaeuser Distribution

Everyone loves autumn. Cool weather. Football. Colorful leaves. And, home improvement projects.


Right about this time each year homeowners get enthusiastic about making home upgrades before winter weather sets in. While some people know exactly what they want done to their homes, others are open to suggestions from their remodelers and contractors. That’s where you come in.

As a valuable resource to both your remodeler customers and DIYers, now is the time to let them know about some distinctive products you have available through Weyerhaeuser Distribution that can enhance a home improvement project. While everyone should be thinking about cutting down on air infiltration and heat loss by adding DOW® Styrofoam Sheathing to improve the energy efficiency in their homes, there’s a good chance you can influence your customers to increase their business with you by recommending these unique projects:

Project 1
Upgrade to a FAIRWAY® porch or deck railing system to complement any home style. The top-quality vinyl, composite and aluminum rail systems are easyto- install and maintain. Select from the V110 Vinyl Railing Kits or the CP300 Series Composite Railing kits. Secondary ADA round hand railing and railing accessories are also available in vinyl and aluminum.

Project 2
Trade out rotted wood trim pieces on a home for exterior pieces that will last: ArmorCoat XT Treated Trim products. Sprayed on all six sides with Wolman AG® surface treatment, these high-grade wood products feature consistent comb and a 20-year limited warranty. Choose from window and corner trim, fascia, battens, belly bands, garage wrap, bargeboard, porch posts and frieze/rake.

Project 3
Replace a worn-out deck with TAMKO® Envision® Composite Lumber. With multifaceted color palettes only available from Envision®, this stand-out decking material features a 25-year limited warranty against rotting, splitting and termites. An autumn deck project is ideal when coupled with a cozy outdoor fire pit area.

Project 4
Define an outdoor living space … with a new cedar pergola. The natural look of beautiful Western Red Cedar enhances any landscaping, creating warm and inviting entertainment areas for friends and family to enjoy all year round. Plus, this durable long-lasting wood is surprisingly lightweight and easy to work with. Don’t stop there. Promote the creation of cedar decking, seating or fencing too!

Project 5
Get ready for winter weather by residing a home with TruWood® Siding and Trim. Treated with EcoGuard® zinc borate process to resist mildew, rot and termite damage, TruWood siding brings beauty, durability and dependability to the outside of a home. Engineered to perform and designed to protect, weather-resistant TruWood products are factory-primed with an industry-leading coating for added weather protection and a great topcoat surface. All backed by their five-year primer warranty.
