Richmond, VA, July 05, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- From the rain forests of south-east Alaska to the deciduous forests of the Mid-Atlantic region, all are challenged to identify eco-sustainable products and/or services. As a result, the Wright Scoop recommends LP Smartside a wood-based siding as a Product of CARE.
LP Smartside, a wood-based siding –
Available in different sizes in smooth and textured finishes, LP SmartSide is identified to enhance the curb appeal of new and remodeled homes. Plus, it’s the perfect complement to homes finished in other exteriors such as stucco, stone and brick. Available in long lengths for fewer seams and a beautiful appearance, its rich cedar grain texture or smooth finish is treated with our SmartGuard® a process which resists termites and decay. For details, visit website www.lpsmartside.com.
“We are using LP Smartside, a wood based siding,” says Nea May Poole of Poole & Poole Architecture, LLC. “The beige color in construction photos is a primer, not the final color. We intend to match the original color. We chose LP SmartSide because it is an engineered wood siding known to resist damage from impacts better than fiber cement and vinyl siding. An additional benefit is LP is doing a time lapse marketing campaign around the barn which will provide for us, step by step documentation of our home’s renovation.” For details of the Poole family barn restoration project, visit web site www.barnatwalnuthill.com and/or Facebook group “the barn at Walnut Hill.”
Eco Sustainable Product/Services of CARE –
Historically, earth-friendly is defined as reduce, reuse and recycle. Products and/or Services of CARE - conservation, accountability, recovery and eco-efficiency - takes this definition a step further. For, eco-sustainable products and/or services are not simply a result of lifestyle choice but reflect how we feel about the environment. While keeping it simple (as in simple living) is a guideline, there is a more important underlying factor – a commitment to ultimate greening: provide for present-day lifestyles without sacrificing future eco systems. LP SmartSide Lap Siding is a product identified to reflect such eco sustainable characteristics as well as connect people to the living green that surrounds them.
