LeakSmart System

LEAKSMART
The LeakSmart Snap is a whole-home system that detects water leaks or pipe-freezing temperatures, shuts off the home’s supply, and alerts homeowners via a smart device in less than 5 seconds. It installs quickly, the company says, without the need to cut into the main water supply line. A Hub extends the protection, even during power outages.

Entreka prefab panels

ENTEKRA

LP recently invested in this manufacturer, which provides prefabricated wall panels, floor panels, and roof trusses. Structural elements are delivered to the jobsite for sequential off-loading to maximize efficiencies, and the frame can be assembled in three to four days. Entekra says its system reduces the overall build cycle by up to 33 percent versus stick framing and reduces the need for on-site skilled labor by 40 to 60 percent.
