This week thousands of members of the building industry are visiting San Diego to attend PCBC, the largest annual homebuilding trade show in the western United States.
More than 10,000 participants are expected to visit the two-day event, which is open to anyone professionally involved in the building industry. Participants include builders, developers, architects, remodelers, designers, contractors, dealers/distributors and suppliers/manufacturers – and they come from the U.S., Mexico, Canada and approximately 25 other countries from all over the globe. “PCBC” was originally the acronym for “Pacific Coast Builders Conference,” the show’s leadership thought that was an incorrect reflection of the global audience. Today the show is known simply as PCBC.

SPF can substantially reduce energy needs and costs for both residential homes and commercial buildings. Many new homes could even lower their energy use and costs by installing SPF insulation.*
These are just a few of the excellent benefits of SPF:
