While there were undoubtedly fewer product suppliers peddling their wares at this year's production of the International Builders' Show, those that were there packed in an impressive amount of innovation.

Builder's editors, as well as those from our sister publications Remodeling and ProSales, trekked the miles of product exhibits on Day 3 and came back with a baker's dozen of their favorite finds.

This year's products were a welcome reflection of macro-trends the industry as seen take hold in recent years, including beautifully designed products that incorporate technology to make life easier; green products that improve a home's performance while cutting down on build time, and appliances that more efficiently meet the needs of everyday life.
