Products that simplify the backsplash selection process and create usable space underneath decks catch the eye of readers among recent coverage. The following product received the most page views in the past month on QualifiedRemodeler.com: ARCHITECTURAL SURFACES GROUP (ASG) e Backsplash Innovations Program from ASG aims to address what can be an overwhelming ex- perience during the selection process: choosing a backsplash. Each tile series in the collection has been selected specifically to work for backsplash applications, which removes some of the homeown- er guesswork from the selection process. Available nationwide, the program will include an assortment of ceramic tile, glass mosaics and natural stone in various sizes, shapes and textures. Color options have been specifically selected to readily coordinate with quartz, natural stone and porcelain slab ma- terials, thus ensuring design options while keeping the process simple. Two collections are currently available through the Backsplash Innovations Program—Splash and ZYX—and a third collection will be available later this summer. Splash (shown) provides a ceramic wall tile series in six neutral colors. e extended subway tile features a subtle texture and comes in 4- by 20-inch plus a bullnose. ZYX features expressive shapes and strong architectural properties. e 3-D ceramic tile comes in rombo or triangle shapes and five color options.

TREX To help create a usable living area below a deck, the Trex RainEscape Drainage System keeps rain, spills and snow melt from dripping through elevated deck boards. Use with new decks or install the under-deck drainage system on an existing deck by removing the floor. Once the system is installed, utilities such as ceiling fans and speakers can be added and then covered with a soffit or ceiling. Comprised of a network of troughs and gutters, Trex RainEscape can be used on any joist material and with any brand of decking. Install on 12- or 16-inch joist spacing. To support the installation process, Trex offers slideshows that walk through many of the steps; printed instructions in English, French and Spanish; and several installation demonstration videos on YouTube.
