LP Building Solutions (LP), a leading manufacturer of high-performance building products, celebrates another milestone with the inclusion of LP® SmartSide® ExpertFinish® Trim & Siding on Nemacolin Resort's new Wisteria homes. Nestled in the heart of Pennsylvania, this community was purpose-built for Nemacolin associates to live on the property.

Developed in partnership with 84 Lumber, the Wisteria community comprises 33 new homes, a full-service grocery store, a pub, and a recreation center. The beautiful resort setting, combined with cutting-edge architectural design and LP's innovative home siding products, results in a beautiful community. The exterior cladding used for the Wisteria community combines sustainability, efficiency, and durability—all critical factors when selecting a siding option.

“When we discovered the features and benefits of using LP SmartSide ExpertFinish Trim & Siding, we knew it was the right product for this project,” said 84 Lumber VP Installed Sales & Manufacturing Ken Kucera. “Like any job site, we faced challenges, especially with winter installations and coordination among multiple workers to ensure that the siding was installed correctly. Thanks to the resiliency and durability of LP SmartSide products, we had no issues with handling and the installers found it easy to work with, providing a sense of comfort and confidence.” 

LP SmartSide Trim & Siding offers more than workability and longer-lasting curb appeal; its materials and innovative technologies make it a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. Many LP SmartSide products are classified as carbon-negative exterior cladding products, meaning that they store more carbon than is released through the manufacturing and product distribution process. Committed to building better products, communities, and futures with the combination of durability, innovation, and design, LP undoubtedly delivers excellence.

 "We are honored to be chosen as the siding partner for this prestigious community,” said LP Senior Manager of Strategic National Accounts Chris Byington. “This collaboration not only reinforces our commitment to Building a Better World but also highlights the collective efforts of LP, Nemacolin, and 84 Lumber in creating a lasting impact. Our high-performance products, complemented by Nemacolin’s unwavering dedication to providing top-notch housing and 84 Lumber’s exceptional material supply, have culminated in the development of a community that is built to be long-lasting.”

The Wisteria project deserved the perfect combination of beauty, resiliency, and durability, and LP SmartSide ExpertFinish Trim & Siding delivered. To learn more about LP SmartSide products, including ExpertFinish products, visit: lpcorp.com/products/siding-trim.
