The Colorado Fall Home Show is your one-stop marketplace to get started
THE TIME HAS COME TO BEGIN PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR THE UPCOMING SEASONS
The time has come to begin preparing your home for the upcoming seasons, and the Colorado Fall Home Show is your one-stop marketplace to get started.
Jim Frick, executive director for the show, came to 9NEWS Wednesday to go through some cool demo items that will be featured at the event.
One of the items, the Notion Detector, lets people monitor their homes from anywhere.
The detector, small enough to hold between your thumb and forefinger, can go on doors, windows and even liquor cabinets through a simple process of pairing to your smartphone, peeling and sticking.
The device can tell you when doors or windows are open, monitor the temperature, inform you of water leaks and alert you to smoke or carbon monoxide.
CeDUR composite shingles will also be at the show this weekend.
A natural cedar shake roof can give your home a classic, beautiful look, but the material is expensive and requires regular maintenance because of splitting, rotting and risk of fire.
Molded from natural cedar shakes, CeDUR composite shingles give your home that timeless look without all the natural wood’s inherent problems.
The material resists Class 4 impacts, sliding snow, wind and fire.
CeDUR is lightweight, can be cut nailed and screwed directly without battens and is competitively priced.
Based in Canada, Vent and Cover are new to the Colorado fall Home Show.
They provide all kinds of vent covers with cool designs – made of resin, wood and metal.
Vent and Cover also provides baseboard covers and baseboard cover kits.
Also new to the show is the Versa Lift, a powerful electric lift that takes your home organization to the next level, literally.
You can garage clutter away with the push of a button and get things back in seconds when you need them.
The show will also feature an underwater painter, Barbara Buchli.
Buchli has worked with university professors and scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop a primer that would fuse her paint to Plexiglass and allow her to paint underwater.
She has had her work displayed at the Museum of fine Arts in Boston, and some of her pieces have been seen by the Pope, members of Buckingham Palace and the Louvre.
The Colorado Fall Home Show runs Friday through Sunday at the Colorado Convention center from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday).
