NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 28, 2023)LP Building Solutions (LP), a leading manufacturer of high-performance building products, today announced its donation of more than 20,000 feet of LP® SmartSide® ExpertFinish® lap siding to the Rockford Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Illinois to support its purpose of Building a Better World.

LP believes in helping builders construct better homes, providing industry-leading safety and sustainability solutions and caring for our employees, customers and communities. The alignment of LP’s mission to provide an innovative and sustainable portfolio of high-quality products that help customers build beautiful, durable homes and Habitat for Humanity’s mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope has created a long-standing partnership between these two organizations. 

The product donation is spread across three ExpertFinish® colors and will help build several new homes in Rockford.

“We are excited to have an impact on the community by donating what we believe is the best-performing, best-looking home siding product to such a worthy cause,” says LP ExpertFinish Marketing Associate Emily O’Connor. “Not only does the durability of ExpertFinish siding provide longer-lasting curb appeal, but it also has an industry-leading warranty.”

LP has long supported Habitat for Humanity.

This represents one of many partnerships LP has with Habitat chapters across the nation. Together in the communities where they operate, LP and Habitat help families build places to call home.
