Georgia-Pacific Wood Products Offers Builders and Dealers Sustainable Solutions and Tools for Success at 2010 International Builders’ Show

New “Just the Facts” Campaign and builditbetter.com Online Resource Features Innovative Wood Products and Best Building Practices for Customers

Atlanta, GA. January 19, 2010 -- 

Georgia-Pacific Wood Products LLC (booth C3265), a leader in the building and construction industry, today announced its new “Just the Facts” marketing campaign at the 2010 International Builders’ Show (IBS). The campaign provides builders and dealers with information about Georgia-Pacific Wood Products’ innovative, sustainable building products and practices.

As part of the “Just the Facts” campaign, Georgia-Pacific Wood Products also launched www.builditbetter.com, a valuable online resource for builders and dealers. Builditbetter.com features industry news and highlights unique facts about the Wood Products portfolio, the Company’s sustainability commitment, and smart building practices, such as the following:

  • Georgia-Pacific Wood Products - “On a hot summer day, attics with Thermostat® radiant barrier roof sheathing can stay up to 30°F cooler than attics with standard sheathing.”
  • Sustainability-“There’s virtually no waste when we use a tree. Bark and wood residuals are utilized as the primary source of energy at our production facilities, supplying more than 50 percent of the energy needed to make our wood products.”
  • Benefits of building with wood - “It takes 2.5 times more fossil fuel to produce a concrete slab floor, and 4.9 times more to produce a steel joist floor than it takes to produce a wood joist floor.”

“Georgia-Pacific Wood Products has always been dedicated to supplying our customers with quality building materials,” says Caryn King, director of marketing, Georgia-Pacific Wood Products. “One of the objectives of our new campaign and web site is to effectively and efficiently communicate relevant information to builders and dealers and provide resources that may be helpful to them in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” added King.
