The Foundry. The company's line of vinyl siding elements is certified by the Vinyl Siding Institute and is designed to look like authentic handcrafted cedar. Each piece is hand-formed using unique molds patterned from rough-hewn cedar. The company promises no visible repeat on a wall for up to an 80-foot span. The line includes shingles, and split and staggered shakes, available in a variety of shapes. 800.771.4486. www.foundrysiding.com.
Duluth Trading Co. Designed just like cargo pants, Souped Up Sweatpants are ideal to work in, says the maker. Compartments include a cell phone pocket, a cargo pocket for tools or a wallet, two rear zip pockets, and two utility straps. The knees have a dual fabric panel for extra durability. Best of all, a built-in belt keeps the waist in place. The cotton-poly material is almost 50% heavier than that of regular sweatpants. 800.505.8888. www.duluthtrading.com.
Bond. One Time wood protector carries a seven-year warranty against damage from rain, wind, and sunlight. Its proprietary resin blend contains no solvents or waxes, and cures into the wood to become part of its cellular structure, the maker says. It's available in four shades and can be used on pretreated or natural wood. 866.663.8463. www.onetimewood.com.
