ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bonded Builders Warranty Group (BBWG), an affiliate of St. Petersburg, FL-based Bankers Financial Corporation, is providing two critical services at this year's NAHB International Builders' Show.  BBWG is underwriting the structural warranty on The New American Home 2016, as well as providing the showcase structure with its patent-pending Residential Energy Guarantee ®, a revolutionary program which reimburses homeowners for energy costs exceeding 15% of the home's predicted usage.

BBWG Vice President of Business Development Stephen Hooker notes, "We are proud to play such an important role in the 2016 International Builders' Show. For over three decades, IBS has showcased the best design and most current technologies by building, from the foundation up, a beautiful and functional home to be toured by convention attendees."

The thirty-third home in the New American Home series is a 5,050 square foot structure incorporating the latest green and sustainable building materials, products, energy efficiencies and construction methods in order to reduce its impact on the environment and provide the highest quality of life for the occupants. NAHB describes this year's New American Home as having "cutting-edge energy efficiency and stunning contemporary design."

"This amazing home, striking for its aesthetic appeal as well as energy efficiencies, is covered by an industry-leading new-home structural warranty, and is guaranteed to be cost-effective in its energy usage, since it is backed by our Residential Energy Guarantee. We are excited to be able to present two of our proven products and services to such a wide audience in such an impressive setting," Hooker added.

The annual meeting of building industry professionals is the largest annual light construction show in the world, every year attracting 50,000 visitors from more than 100 countries.
