Each material spec sheet includes a material sketch, typical material dimensions, estimated cost (note: cost info does not include installation costs, which can vary greatly), an overview of the material, recommended applications, tips and considerations, and potential places where the material may be sourced. The spec sheets may be printed, cut, and mixed and matched to help you and your project partners develop an appropriate palette of materials that suits your project context, budget, and anticipated project delivery timeline.

Happy building!
