RESIDENTIAL


When it comes to composites architecture, flashy exterior applications for big commercial projects get most of the attention. However, composites are just as valuable in residential projects, particularly in interior renovation applications. From apartment buildings to new houses, composites and cast polymers can serve as stand-alone solutions or work in tandem with traditional materials to provide quality aesthetics, sanitation and durability.
