    Each tile in Italian artisanal studio Il Monile’s Byzantina Mosaic Collection is kiln-fired twice at a high temperature—the second time to seal the individual pieces to a ceramic base and ensure that the mosaic’s surface and crevices are completely glazed. The Fire, Terrain, Seascape, and Moonlight color blends can be used on the floors and walls of interior and exterior applications, including wet rooms. Il Monile. 415.887.9011. www.cletile.com.

    Dow’s POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles turn an everyday, passive building element into an active solar collector. The system features a custom-designed solar array that’s integrated into the home’s electrical system; a solar inverter transforms solar energy from a direct current to a usable alternating current, which is distributed throughout the home. Homeowners can monitor the system in real time and earn utility savings through a net metering system. Dow. 855.369.7657. www.dowpowerhouse.com.

    Fiberglass siding from Apex looks like wood but holds up to the elements better than fiber cement, the company says. The siding is made from parent company Marvin’s Ultrex pultruded fiberglass, which, according to the manufacturer, doesn’t require caulking or painting and features an acrylic finish that resists chipping, splintering, fading, and warping more than other siding materials. The siding comes in 10 colors, 4-inch and 7-inch widths, 16-foot lengths, and in a smooth or wood-grain finish. Apex Siding. 888.215.1092. www.apexsiding.com.

    Andersen Windows’ Architectural Collection offers builders an opportunity to either abide by historical precedents or do their own thing. The company consulted architects for its new A-Series’ Style Library, which currently features 10 door and window profiles in five installations, and three glazed- and four patterned-glass options. The E-Series lets builders customize all aspects of their windows and doors from color and wood species to grille thickness. Andersen Windows. 800.426.4261. www.andersenwindows.com.
