Setting the example for how to rebuild defensively in the wake of last October's super storm, Eco and crew continue to educate residents on how to properly rebuild, ultimately raising the bar on established residential building code minimums. A concrete example of these efforts is supported by a recent Discovery Channel documentary featuring Eco Red Shield, which can be viewed by clicking the following link: http://watch.discoverychannel.ca/#clip895566. Of the rebuild obstacles being combatted daily, the prevalence of mold infestation has become quite an issue, and one that represents potentially serious threats to the health and livelihood of affected residents. Local Breezy Point residents Thomas Ball and FDNY Deputy Chief Jimmy Dalton are among the first to begin using this defensive product in their rebuild. Guided by Eco's recently published white paper, Rebuilding After a Super Storm, and in association with the Institute of Defensive Building Practices (IDBP); Dalton and Ball charge into their rebuild bounded by confidence and unparalleled technical rebuilding support.
"Thanks to the Eco team for educating my community on post-super storm Sandy defensive building practices, and developing the innovative Eco Disaster Break product. As I apply the Disaster Break, I know my home will now be protected from mold, wood rot, termites, flood waters and the fires that I experienced during the October 2012 storm. Steve Conboy and the Eco team have been a God send to my family and neighborhood, and we thank you for providing a forward-thinking product that is easy to apply, nontoxic, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective. I look forward to using other Eco products (Disaster Clean, Red Shield lumber, Elevator and Hurricane Steel) as we raise our home, rebuild and protect ourselves from future Sandy like disasters," stated Thomas Ball, Breezy Point resident.

"There are a lot of components inclusive of planning and organization that effectively set the stage for what we'd like to label a proper rebuild. Eco's defensive products and our refined ability to teach the world how to build using new methods have come together in the wake of the recent storms. It's important for us as a community to understand that old methods of building are not going to protect anyone when it comes to taking a stand against these fire storms and hurricanes. Nonetheless, it is these events that catalyze change and promote new methods of building, indicative of innovation and technology. You can find this information on our www.idbp.org website," stated Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc. "We are focused on teaching the Specifying Community first, as this will relieve the contractors from making vital decisions that have the tenacity to affect the health and safety of so many. Doing otherwise creates a massive breeding ground for construction defects lawsuits revolving around the implications of not mitigating mold, which is certain to make its appearance long after the homeowners move back in their homes," added Conboy.
