We are honored to have earned and be awarded as our current status with Louisiana Pacific, the LP Build Smart Remodeler Platinum status. This was great news for us about the manufacturer of products we proudly promote and install.

SmartSide Siding Leading The Way
It is the engineered wood products, such as the famed LP SmartSide Siding, that inadvertently lead the way in increased sales as well as lower resin cost lead to yet more profitability. In fact, share price of this first rate supplier of wood based building materials has been on the upside since the company announced much better than expected first quarter 2015 results on May 5th and has since then gained a solid 4.5% in the markets as reported by NASDAQ. The company is optimistic about building even more momentum in the home improvement market in the upcoming quarters with expectations of higher demand of their products with plans of its Swan Valley mill to start SmartSide production later this year to accommodate the increasing demand.
The siding business has seen the biggest jump due to strong sales across the nation due to marketing efforts and warm reception of the SmartSide Siding products offered by Louisiana Pacific Corporation LP Building Products.
