ToolBase Home Building Resources Database
Home building technical and field researched resources to help builders implement innovations in manageable, systems-based packages.
ToolBase Services is the housing industry's resource for technical information on building products, materials, new technologies, business management, and housing systems. The NAHB Research Center provides the services, with funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through The Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) program, and other industry sponsors.
ToolBase Home Building Resources
ToolBase Resources combines product descriptions, design & construction guides, best practices, performance reports, case studies, and other resources in way that builders and remodelers will find useful.
The Home Building Technology Inventory
Because of the huge number of housing technologies and the diversity of builders, even the best technologies do not always make a big splash when they enter the market. PATH (The Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing) created the Technology Inventory to accelerate the awareness and acceptance process.
PATH's Technology Inventory lists over 170 new technologies that demonstrate great potential for improving housing performance, but that have not been widely used or accepted.
