Carol Stream, Ill. – Jan. 19, 2016 – While the focus and praise of the residential construction industry has always been centered on the unique residential communities that are created, it’s important to remember that homes are never completed without the unique technology tools that do lend a helping hand, so to speak, behind the scenes.

It’s these technology solutions and products that have been chosen to be recognized by Constructech magazine as the 2016 Top Products of the Year. The Residential 2016 Constructech Top Products awards highlight achievements and advancements in technology that have greatly impacted the homebuilding market.

Submissions are judged on originality and overall usefulness. Each entry is then evaluated based on its performance in the residential construction market for helping builders achieve their technological objectives in helping advance technology and grow the construction market.

“The homebuilding community needs the right software tools and applications that will help it forge new pathways to profitability, especially as the market begins to pick up,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech magazine. “The 2016 residential Top Products winners are truly demonstrating their success in this area for homebuilders today.”

Winning products place in either a New Product or a Trusted Product category. New Products are based on newly introduced products and technology offerings that have been in the market for less than two years. Trusted Products are those core technology offerings in the market for more than three years. This category also includes upgrades or enhancements to existing products. The recipients of the residential Constructech Top Products for 2016 are:
