DELTA ® INNOVATION
Making your home sweet home even sweeter. Congratulations on your new home! And our compliments to your builder, on equipping your rooms with Delta faucets and showers. We create our products to be not just dependable, but transformative—and by basing our innovations around your needs, we’re able to produce designs and technologies that make your everyday life a little simpler. We hope you’ll enjoy reading more about Delta Faucet’s technologies. For our part, we’ll enjoy being part of your home for years to come.
TOUCH 2 O ® TECHNOLOGY. Tap it on. Tap it off. Just one touch on the spout or handle starts or stops the water’s flow. Because life is too short to spend time cleaning the thing that cleans you. • Soapy or messy hands? Simply use the back of your hand or forearm to turn on the water. It’ll help keep your faucet clean and reduce cross-contamination. • The first innovation of its kind on the market, Touch 2 O Technology is now available in more styles, finishes and options than ever.
MULTICHOICE ® UNIVERSAL. Although you can’t see the MultiChoice Universal rough behind your bathroom wall, it will make any future shower changes easier for you. • If you choose to upgrade your shower’s function (maybe going from just temperature control to controlling temperature and volume), or change its style (when you’re ready to redecorate), the MultiChoice rough will let you do so more easily (without altering plumbing behind the wall).
DELTA ® INNOVATION
H 2 OKINETIC ® SHOWERS. H 2 Okinetic showers sculpt water into a unique wave pattern giving you the feeling of more water, without using more water. • Each H 2 Okinetic showerhead, body spray and handshower has an internal system that controls the speed, movement and droplet size of the water. What you’ll feel is a warmer, more drenching shower experience that offers three times the coverage of a standard showerhead.* • Many H 2 Okinetic showers are WaterSense ® labeled meaning they help conserve water, so you get a warmer, wetter, earth-friendly shower.
*Coverage measured in accordance with EPA WaterSense ® Specification for Showerheads, March 4, 2010.
TOUCH 2 O .XT ™ TECHNOLOGY FOR THE BATHROOM. Touch it on. Touch it off. Or go completely hands-free. With Touch 2 O .xt Technology, the choice is yours. • The touch feature can spice up any room and is ideal for tasks that require a constant flow of water, such as washing your face. • The hands-free option uses your entire faucet as a sensor. Once your hands get within four inches, the water starts to flow—then stops when you take your hands away. Perfect for repetitive tasks like hand-washing or razor-rinsing (and for kids who wander away without turning water off).

An opportunity for high sales potential. A fireplace sets you apart from the rest.

separates the power component from the modular smart control Insert allowing you to easily swap functionality based on your needs, or upgrade as new technologies emerge without having to install a new device. https://www.swidget.com/
• Swidget ’s modularity allows builders to make new homes, condos, and apartments “smart - ready” by simply installing a Swidget device (outlets switches) just like any non-smart device. The beauty of this is the builder does not have to guess which smart technology features their buyers might want. When the buyer is ready, they can select their preferred smart home inserts and install themselves. • Swidget is future-proof so buyers can easily upgrade when their needs or technology changes without having to pay an electrician to install a new device. Instead, they simply purchase a new smart Insert (an additional revenue stream for you) and snaps it into their existing Swidget device.

Homeowners across the U.S. are becoming increasingly aware of the quality of their water supply. In response to that awareness, water filtration solutions are in great demand for builders who are focused on lifestyle, health, and environmental consciousness for their home buyers. Every contaminant associated with the EPA is categorized under 6 major types, and these are the most common that our technicians see in municipal and off-grid water supplies every day. Giving homebuyers choices when they are building their home, and providing them the option to have clean, healthy water is the right thing to do. It’s no wonder why water consciousness has fueled a 300% growth in our industry, since the COVID-19 pandemic. Which water contaminants are lurking in your building communities? Call us today, to give your clients the choice of a healthier lifestyle.

Here are some reasons Builders all over the country are participating in Member Rebate Program
We have been participating in the Member Rebate Program for several years and enjoy receiving rebates for products that we already use! Our rebates are typically several hundred dollars a quarter and it is easy to do. You are missing out if you are a member and not participating in this great member benefit! ”
David Belman, Belman Homes (WI)
For a small investment in time, it’s well worth applying for the rebate. My rebates average about $900 per quarter. And once you apply the first time, you look forward to doing it again - especially when you receive that check. In one year, the amount that I get back through this rebate program is more than triple what I spend on membership dues.”
John Ainslie, The Ainslie Group (VA)
I had no idea the amount of money I was leaving behind each quarter. It is really nice having this check to look forward to four times a year. Thanks!”

CLOPAY’S COACHMAN ® COLLECTION DOORS
In today’s marketplace, new home buyers will judge a home by its exterior. And if they don’t like what they see on the outside, they may never see the inside. As a result, garage doors have taken center stage due to their impact on a home’s curb appeal, the variety of design options and perceived overall value of the home. Low-cost garage door design upgrades can have a significant impact on a home’s curb appeal, and consequently, a home buyer’s first impression. BETTER CURB APPEAL MEANS… n Faster Sales
MATTER first impressions we believe
n Better Selling Price and Margins n Increased Home Buyer Satisfaction
DESIGNS TO COMPLEMENT ANY ARCHITECTURAL STYLE AND BUDGET
Boosting curb appeal while staying within budget is easy, thanks to Clopay’s industry-leading selection of garage door designs, construction materials and insulation options.

I have personally recruited 3 new members into the local HBA using this rebate program as an added incentive last quarter. How can anyone argue free rebates if you’re already a member.” Bill Clipse, Meander Homes Construction Inc. (OH) What a great program! It's so easy to use and get money back from manufacturers for using products. All members should sign up for this program. It not only benefits the member but also the Local & State HBA.” Frank Krause, Krause Construction (SD) For the $1,138 we received in rebates, it has been well worth it. I just sent the application to my subcontractors who had the products in our homes and let them fill it out. I then simply compiled all of the info and sent it in.” Tom Schaefer, Signature Homes (WI) The HBA Rebate Program is truly an added benefit and we have been excited to have received almost $20,000 since the inception of the program. This is simple to complete and allows us to keep with our mission of quality construction on-time and within the budget!” Jessica Scheurich, Keller Development, Inc. (IN)
