Be Boundless™ campaign

Building on the success of its 2023 Boundless™ campaign, Westlake Royal will highlight Be Boundless, a philosophy of thinking and an approach to working built on three pillars — Innovation, Connection and Expression. Together, these pillars give builders, contractors, designers and homeowners limitless opportunities to define, activate and expand in bigger and bolder ways. They empower the industry to think, manufacture, distribute, design, build and remodel as creatively and productively as they dare.

Westlake Royal 2024 industry trends

New in the booth this year, Westlake Royal will exhibit three overarching industry trends that it predicts to dominate in 2024:

  • Design versatility - Bringing the visions of homeowners, architects, designers and builders to life demands the creation of unique and harmonious indoor and outdoor spaces that reflect continuously evolving tastes. This can be accomplished through siding, trim, stone, roofing and outdoor products delivering the highest level of Design Versatility.
  • High-performance products and materials - As weather has intensified, the demand for high-performance building products has surged. Homeowners and building pros face complex product selection decisions — navigating around the areas of regional weatherability, performance and sustainability.
  • Innovative industry solutions - Building professionals are facing the daunting challenges of labor shortages and product delivery issues, while trying to gain strong project margins and grow their business. To meet these varied and evolving needs, Westlake Royal Building Products is exploring every innovation, from new easy-to-install products to support services.

Westlake Royal will also detail how its products can help achieve these top trends.

The new product line is low-maintenance, moisture and insect proof, and easy to install due to its hidden nailing hems. Royal WoodTone Styles offer the elegant look of stained wood in six trending colors, including American Walnut, Oak Ridge, Natural Cedar, Smoke Grey, Weathered Oak and Charred Timber.

Made of durable cellular PVC, Royal Knock Down Column Wraps are resistant to moisture and prevent issues found in traditional wood columns, such as warping, rotting and insect damage. In addition to its low-maintenance qualities and long-lasting performance, the column wraps are beautifully versatile with its bright white color and smooth texture, which can be painted to complement a home’s exterior color palette. Royal Knock Down Column Wraps are available in 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 sizes, and two standard lengths—8’6” & 10’ lengths. Each piece is delivered flat in heavy-duty corrugated boxes for added protection and features a protective film on the outer surface to help keep the product clean and ensure a flawless installation.
Roofing

Westlake Royal, a leader in energy-efficient and weather-resistant roofing systems and components, is planning four key launches at this year’s IBS. These include:

  • NEW! Unified Steel Material List Generator, an interactive tool that auto-generates a roofing product list. The system simplifies the estimating process for both Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing and Westlake Royal Roofing Components™. The Material List Generator integrates seamlessly with roof measurements acquired traditionally or through 3D and geospatial measurement generating software solutions. There is no cost to builders and contractors who use it.
  • NEW! Unified Steel Cool Roof Colors - Developed in line with national color trends, regional building code requirements and for optimal performance, these products are Cool Roof Rated by the CRRC and manufactured to increase comfortability, help decrease energy costs and prolong the roof’s lifespan. The new colors, Harborwood™ and Stirling Gray™, are offered in both PINE-CREST Shake and PACIFIC Tile profiles.
  • NEW! Roofing Underlayment CEU Course - The Importance of Roof Underlayment for Energy Efficiency and Fire Resistance explores the roof underlayment as an integral part of the total roof system design and educates architects on the performance, benefits, fire resistance and weather resilience of various underlayment types. Course participants will obtain 1.0 CEU credit upon completion. Architects may access the new CEU course at Hanley Wood University and through the AIA.
  • NEW! DaVinci Roofscapes E-books - In keeping with the 2024 trend and focus on home exteriors and colors, DaVinci Roofscapes has launched two new e-books in their FRESH series. Authored by international color expert Kate Smith with Sensational Color, the e-books provide “top-down” guidance on Fixed Features, Regional Colors, Environment & Surroundings, Style of the Home and Historic or HOA Colors. The first e-book invites people to follow the “5 Steps for Finding the Perfect Hues for Your Home” and the second new e-book tackles the topic of “FRESH Colors for Homes with Brick or Stone.”
Stone

Westlake Royal will feature Cultured Stone, Eldorado Stone and Dutch Quality Stone®, made to enhance interior and exterior vertical spaces by featuring organic textures, dynamic color palettes and multisensory aesthetic cues that pay homage to architectural traditions while expanding the boundaries of design.

  • NEW! Dutch Quality Stone Colors includes two colorways debuting at IBS 2024. The first, Coal Crest, is a moody palette with a rich blend of charcoal and ash that serves as the perfect complement to the brand’s Dry Stack and Weather Ledge profiles. The second color palette, Oak Blend, was designed for the Limestone, Stack Ledge and Weather Ledge profiles to deliver a fresh take on earthy browns with the subtle interplay of cream and silver undertones.
  • Eldorado Stone presents the charming LoreioBrick™, a long-format, linear brick veneer profile with gradient color blends, and Rivenwood™, a panelized design with wood grain characteristics that exudes textural diversity for an aged yet contemporary look.
  • Cultured Stone displays its newest profile Tenley Brick™, which offers unique bond and patterning options with its linear shape, organic tonality and four trend-forward colorways.
Outdoor living

Westlake Royal is redefining outdoor living spaces and will exhibit several key products at IBS 2024:

  • Zuri™ Premium Decking combines the natural beauty and warmth of exotic hardwood with the unsurpassed durability and exceptionally low-maintenance requirements of PVC. Unlike competitor composite decking that does not look like wood, Zuri's PVC substrate is capped with a photo-realistic wood-grain print and a clear acrylic that resists stains, scratches, fading and moisture. All Zuri products are backed by a 25-year Color Fastness Warranty against color shifting. Zuri’s color line includes Hickory, Chestnut, Walnut, Pecan, Brazilia and Weathered Gray; the planks are available in both square and grooved boards along with fascia and corners.
  • Kindred® Outdoors and Surrounds fuses design and functionality with solutions ranging from elegant fire bowls to inviting seating walls, handcrafted fireplace surrounds and beautiful outdoor kitchens. On display at IBS 2024, unique fire bowls are made from strong, glass-fiber reinforced concrete and hand-sanded through a four-step finishing process. Adorned with subtle variations in color and texture similar to natural limestone, each fire bowl is available in four colors with Honed or Travertine finishes.
Windows

Westlake Royal provides durable, energy-efficient and modern styles with its casement windows, patio doors, sliders, picture windows, and impact-rated options for new construction, replacement applications, single-family and multi-family.

  • Krestmark® 800 Series Patio Door - Featured at IBS 2024, the Krestmark 800 Series Patio Door is a new construction patio door with AAMA approved PVC lineal certification and 16-gauge steel reinforcing.
